Every time my wife and I visit Boone, we always include lunch at Tuckers at least one day during each of our visits. Their black bean Quesadillas are tops . . . you won't find one any better! Other items equally delicious.

Tucker’s is in Boone Mall and was busy on a recent Sunday afternoon. A huge number of items on the diner-ish menu which can be good or bad. Lots of choices but hard to do that many things well. At our table we had a...salad w/ chicken, gyro salad, baked potato and black bean soup. Best among these was the gyro salad. My expectations weren’t sky high but I still found myself disappointed. Baked potato was microwaved and their available everyday soup was just okay. Maybe there are some things they do really well. It was busy so must be meeting a need. Service was decent.More

We are not locals but just happened to stop by a couple of the mall shops and ended up glancing at the menu. Seemed good so why not? Great choice! The spice chicken club was delicious - a large piece of chicken with Swiss, bacon,...lettuce, and tomato. I opted for just the side of pickles but snagged a couple of the fries with my husband's double patty melt were yum! He said his sandwich was excellent. Very pleased with this unassuming diner and will make sure to visit again when in the area. Boone restaurants and fast food are very crowded so this was way more relaxing. And great job to the staff for their covid safety procedures!!More

The general atmosphere, friendliness, and time for food arrival is great. Try the "Chicken Quesadillas" with added mushrooms.

This place may be small , but it packs a punch! I remember when this place was called The Lettuce Leaf way back in the day... been eating here as long as I remember since the early 90's. You have to get seasoned fries... I...don't know what they do, but they're the best.More

We were on our way out of the mall and noticed how crowded this little cafe was during lunch time. We gave it a try and had the lunch combo of a cheeseburger basket with a side of crispy crinkle cut fries and a drink...for $10.50. We thought it was just an average type cafe but the meal proved us wrong. It was above average in food and so quaint inside. The fries were cooked to perfection and there were a lot of them too. Sweet tea was just right and service was quick and consistent. I would most definitely come back when in the area. They had a hugh menu to choose from.More

This is a good diner in Boone mall. It is mainly a lunch spot that serves good sandwiches, salads & apps. I have had the gyros, hamburgers, soups and clubs sandwiches. Today I had the gyro, ff & soda for about $9.50. Good spot to...get a bite to eat when you are in the area of Boone mall. Not a chain!More

We tried their Heart Smart Start menu, in particular the GREEK HEALTH SMART PIZZA. This took a little longer than a sandwich to prepare but it was absolutely delicious. Their prices are good too. We plan to eat here as often as practical, at least...once a week. In the past, we have probably eaten here 12-15 times and we have always been pleased with the food.More

I have been eating here since I was a child and Tucker's never disappoints. The burgers are terrific and everything on the menu is very affordable. They also have great lunch specials that include a drink for no more than what you'd pay for some...crappy fast food somewhere. Worth walking through the mall to get to, or park in the back and it's a much shorter walk.More

Tuckers always has good food and service for the times I have eaten here. Their chef salad is one of the best around Boone, always fresh ingredients. The place is small so at busy times it takes awhile to be seated.

A little of everything here for any taste. Burgers and sandwiches are great and the quesadillas are really good as well. My favorite side is the fries. It's amazing how many restaurants can't do fries. But at Tuckers they are always crisp and hot and...perfectly seasoned. Located inside the Boone Mall but worth the extra effort to eat there. Friendly service and very clean.More

We just ate here cause we were staying nearby, and wanted to try a local place as opposed to a chain restaurant. The food was good, but I wouldn't go so far as to say it was great. I got a burger, and I could...have got one just as good for half the price at cookout across the street. It was ok overall, but I don't think I would come back if I was in the area again.More
