While our meal was nice, it took over 45 minutes to get our lunch at an “off time” (1:30). And every excuse (empty glass, half the meal arriving) was “its shift change. Now the food was good, and it was hot. The servers had a smile.

Attempted to eat here after visiting the caverns and could not get a seat due to the restaurant being extremely short staffed. Could not give us a wait time and basically ignored us when we walked in and told them 8 ppl. So we went to Gennaro's down the street and quit glad we did.

Was just a small building we took a chance that since the parking lot was full it was good. Walked in wow, decor was very very nice, food was hot, prepared well and a lot. We all had ribs, cat fish, brisket and pork. All were hot, well portion and we will be back

Found this place on Google Maps when traveling to Luray. So pleased with the food. Hot turkey sandwiches and mashed potatoes were great. We had their fried green tomatoes which were delicious. Good food Good prices.

This is a downtown diner that is clearly popular with the locals. We have a super breakfast. The bacon and coffee were particularly good.

Me and my dad had the rib eye and my kids shared a meatloaf. The meat was well cooked, but the sides were disappointing. The corn I ordered (which I thought it would be buttered corned on the cob) tasted just as it came straight from the can, just warmed up in a microwave. No butter and still some of... More

We went out for lunch at Uncle Buck's after a lovely drive up the Shenandoah Parkway. Looking at the outside, you'd think "Seriously?" It was GREAT! I had the smothered turkey open--faced sandwich and potatoes--yum yum! And GREAT prices!

Its good clean diner type food. Great staff honestly. The day we were there it seemed packed like the fall color rush was upon them. We had a shrimp basket, fried Green tomatoes. Park it out in back.

Thank Reuben G
