What a Hoot!

Very, very country in the very best way. Barn like ambience. Basically their thing is the buffet which I think opens at 11 AM.

If you want country cooking, this is the place. Lots of locals go here for breakfast, lunch or even supper. A large variety of dishes, plate lunches and even a buffet are offered.

Don't let the front door fool you. Large open restaurant with cute decor. We ate lunch - my companion had the grilled pork loin with country style green beans and brussels sprouts. I had a bacon cheeseburger and fries. It was all good, filling and arrived at our table piping hot. Only complaint (for the meat & veggies) was the... More

Step back in the past for tasty country cooking. My husband finds things on the menu he hasn't had in years. Delightful staff.

Forget This Place...unless...you like a fun atmosphere, good food, great prices, and wonderful friendly service. We were very pleased with our first visit and will definitely we back the next time we are in Danville. We ordered the typical country breakfast and everything was just fine.

I love this place! The staff is great, the menu has millions of choices and I have yet to find anything on the menu I did not enjoy. The lunch buffet has a wide variety of choices and they have the best cheeseburger in town! If you are looking for comfort food, this is the place.
