Visit Barney’s Cafe, An Andy Griffith Themed Diner In North Carolina For A Dose Of TV Nostalgia

Most natives and visitors of North Carolina are aware of the town of Mt. Airy and that it’s the famous, iconic small town where Andy Griffith grew up and then created a 1960s TV show about his home town, which he renamed Mayberry. In the decades since the show aired, parts of Mt. Airy have essentially become Mayberry, USA, and visitors from all of the state and well beyond flock to the tiny iconic town made famous by the “Andy Griffith Show.”
