Reviews for Aunt Beas Restaurant

We arrived on a Sunday on our way home from Tenn., so not much was open but this area was. The Andy Griffith Museum was nice but this is much more interactive, the gift shop was open and reasonable prices, the shop had a nice small town feel, very nice staff, clean and neat, they also had larger size t Shirts. Lots of photo opportunities wish we had been there when the squad car tours was open would definitely have been a stop and tour.

My husband especially enjoyed riding front seat in the Ford police cars from the Andy Griffith tv show era complete w sirens and a lively “spiel” from the tour guide/driver. He had a running commentary but welcomed questions. Beware that it’s “cash only”, no credit cards but we thought it was money well-spent.

If you are an Andy Griffith fan and here for Mayberry; then after visiting the visitor center head on over to the gas station. It is free to go in the jail and take all the pictures you want and the tow wrecker and spend the money taking the police ride through town. So awesome and worth it just for that alone
