6 Reasons To Drop Anchor At This Covington Diner

No time to beat around the bush... Here are six reasons why you should check out Anchor Grill in Covington:

  1. It's open 24/7.

    Yes, you heard that right. 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. Whenever you’re craving Anchor Grill, you can just go get it. What's better than that?

  2. The staff is wonderful.

    I don’t know how they do it, but no matter what time you go there, it’s the same staff. And if you become a regular, they'll remember you and keep up with your life. (Bonus points!)

  3. The decor is unbeatable.

    You can’t beat vintage diner decor. Anchor Grill looks like it hasn’t updated its aesthetic in years, and that's A-OK. From the old jukeboxes at each table to the quirky nautical ornamentation throughout, its vintage feel remains unique and memorable amidst so many modern eateries.

  4. The prices are low.

    You won't break the bank to satisfy a hunger at this joint. Whether you’re feeling a 10-oz steak or french toast, you'll get a complete, hearty meal for under $15.

  5. The portions are HUGE.

    There aren't many places where you get more food than what you pay for, but Anchor Grill is one of them. The main dishes are huge and the sides are also impressive in scale. This is easily a place where you'll have leftovers for the next day.

  6. It's straight up delicious.

    Obviously, this is the most important part. The food tastes great. You can’t beat it. I’ve ordered a range of things on the menu, and everything always tastes fantastic regardless of the time of day.
