Neon signage, cake display boxes, and always open late—you can't discuss American dining history without mentioning the diner.

Five Points Restaurant in Asheville has been dubbed the best diner in the entire state.

Tiny and unassuming, Five Points is a lot less flashy than the traditional 1950s diners we've come to know and recognize. Instead, this laid-back eatery is somewhat of a hidden gem that depends solely on its incredible food to do all the talking.

Five Points opened back in 1972 and not much has changed here since. A step inside is sure to take you back in time. The restaurant's interior features an old-fashioned lunch counter with metal stools.
