This is a family style restaurant. We had their breakfast. Plenty of different types of food, everything from pancakes, biscuits, scrambled eggs, bacon, sausage, country ham, sausage gravy, grits, and more. The food is good, the service is good, but they do not accept debit or credit cards. You either have to have cash, write a check, or use their... More

Stopped in for breakfast while visiting Boone. After being seated, it took some time for server to locate us. Despite his unyielding attention to the party of 4 next to us, we were neglected. We were not given some of the essential condiments (butter) until we requested; no refills of coffee were offered at any time. We asked for more... More

Fun family style restaurant which features fried chicken, country ham biscuits and salisbury steak as main entrees. Fall and winter are the best times to visit as they have tasty vegetable soup served in a crock as the first course. The desserts are not worth the calories (included in the price). If you are more interested in "gourmet" food, this... More

Nothing special about this place. They serve a lot of food due to the all you can eat servings but the food is bland. Service is impersonal.

This is probably the best known restaurant in the NC mountains. Huge portions of delicious Southern food are served in bowls. The fried chicken and country ham are not to be missed. They do not take reservations so expect to wait a while especially during the busy season.

Stopped in to eat here so my mom could check this off her list of things to do in Boone. Luckily we dined on a Thursday afternoon and there were no lines. This place can be full so plan on waiting if it is a weekend. The food is awesome and served family style. You will get way too much... More

If you go there during the season, be prepared to wait in line. No reservations. Have someone get in line while other see the sights or shop, then call them on cell phone when your about to get seated. Tons of food.
