Good food

Uncle Buck's was very good choice for good meals. Breakfast lunch and dinner. Food was good. Waitresses were kind and friendly. They definitely made you feel at home in the small town.

Uncle Buck's seems like an average family restaurant, until you see the menu. It's very large, and features something for everyone in the American dinner lineup.

Was staying overnight in Luray and needed a place to eat at 8 pm. Not much there until we found Uncle Buck's. Great dinner and we went back for breakfast! Friendly service as well.

we stopped here hoping to get a good breakfast from a local restaurant. We were so disappointed Potatoes were store bought frozen,and the sausage was prepackaged patties.The building was in such terrible condition. Bathroom was filthy. We were not happy with our choice at all.
