    I make it a point to eat hot dogs in every town I visit so I can compare them to the Soda Shop!  Smith's is hands down the best!  I've had hot dogs all across America, I've been to 38 states, and Smith's has the best bar none!  Make sure to get a shake and to bring cash!  Also, do t expect to get pickles or lettuce or tomatoes!  They have mustard, ketchup, onions, slaw, chili, and cheese and that's all as far as condiments are concerned!  You don't need anything more because the years of use behind the equipment provide all the flavor you need!

    BRING CASH!!! They don't take cards or checks!

    This review will be short because well, there just isn't much to say. SMITH'S SODA SHOP in Cleveland GA had been on my radar to try for a few years now and I finally had the chance to take a ride and check them out. This is your classic diner type of experience with stand alone chairs facing the cooks over the counter and a few booths, very small inside. They are huge COCA-COLA fans and have a bunch of memorabilia on their walls, pretty cool. Their double cheeseburger was small in size but juicy, but lacked anything that would make it special. Their fries are OK and have a steak cut to them which means they have to be well cooked or they'll be soggy and my preference is crispy and well done, which this was not. The young lady that took my order was either having a bad day or just didn't like bikers because friendly customer service was just not there. She took my order, said nothing then brought my meal and said nothing... that was the extent of her customer service. There was an older gentlemen and lady in there as well helping other guests and they seemed very friendly and pleasant though. When I was done eating I was quite embarrassed because they do not accept cards which I did not realize before sitting down, ordering and eating my meal. They kindly allowed me to leave their establishment to get some cash (INGLES around the corner) and come back to pay my fair share of their meal. The meal was very small but so was the cost so you have to take that into account. The views on the way there can be spectacular if you avoid the main roads and just take a few back roads. If you're in the area and give them a try let me know what you're experience is like and what type of service you get! I'd be curious to know but make sure you bring cash!!
    Roli's Rating:
    1. Service: 5/10, My waitress didn't care about customer service but I saw the other staff interacting and being friendly with their guests plus I was allowed to go grab cash and told, with a smile "no problem at all, we'll be here". I suppose service will depend on who you get as your server
    2. Price: 10/10, Their meals are on the smaller side but you'll easily be able to get a burger, fries and a drink for about $6
    3. Location and Parking: 7/10, Location isn't too bad as this location is right down the road from the downtown Cleveland area. Parking isn't too bad either although I can see it getting a little tight when busy
    4. Cleanliness: 10/10, Place seemed to be pretty clean
    5. Health Rating: A
    6. Roli Overall Rating: 5/10, Ok spot to stop by only if you're in the immediate area

    Finally caught them open when I could stop in. Love the original decor, brings back memories of days gone by.  Had a double cheeseburger and fries to go. Watched as it was made right before my eyes, with a bun grill, etc. The taste was hot and fresh. Got two double cheeseburgers and two fries to go. All under $10.00.  
    We will be back!!!

    Nice little local burger and hot dog shop. Don't expect excellent service or credit card payment (bring cash) but expect decent food. The slaw dog & slaw burger are good and the cherry soda is top notch (not a pre-made product). Interesting enough this joint does not serve on plates of any kind but on wax paper. All in all this place is a little spot to catch up on the town gossip, eat some food and remember small town USA. Fair warning if you walk into this restaurant with the expectation of modern anything you will be sorely disappointed. Good local dive.
