Loved the atmosphere…almost as much as the waitress that took care of us as a semi large group. She remembered not only is but also what we liked upon out return. The food was great but her smile and personality kept our entire group returning....I will definitely go out of my way to stop here again. Booster seats and extra pens are available 😉 (inside joke)More

Eating at Uncle Dudley’s was one of the most fascinating culinary experiences I have ever had. Previously, I could only imagine that places like this existed. Stepping into the restaurant at almost 2 PM on a weekday, the place was hopping. The clientele appeared to...be made up entirely of regulars, and our entrance had in my mind the effect of a record scratch. We were told to sit anywhere, and a waitress brought a couple of menus after a bit of a delay. Judging from the menu cover, Uncle Dudley apparently does clown gigs on the side. My wife ordered one of the sandwiches whose meaning was unknown to us before trying: pizza steak. This innovative masterpiece featured a large piece of pepperoni smashed onto the bottom of a beef patty, with a dollop of mozzarella cheese inside. There may have been some sausage mixed in with the ground beef. It was truly a genius hybrid sandwich, although my wife described the burger as “horrible.” The waitress seemed confused by my question of whether pizza steak is a thing around here, or if it is unique to Uncle Dudley’s. She did end up stating that she thought you could get it at some Amish farm stores around, but had never seen it on another restaurant menu. Another menu mystery was the “hot beef spot” sandwich. Yet another curiosity was “fish square,” although I had a good guess what this meant. I ordered the perch, which was mostly delicious except that the breading had the consistency of fine gravel, and the tartar sauce was an unexplainable yellow color. I got curly fries with it, which were bland and underseasoned. Undeterred by the main course, I asked for the dessert options, and the waitress rattled off an impressive list of pies, including one final cryptic item: possum pie. Apparently, this is a mixture of chocolate pudding and cream cheese on a graham cracker crust. I ordered the peach pie. The peaches had the fun texture and perfectly smooth surface that can only come from a can. It lacked peach flavor but managed to be outdone by the blandness of the curst. But really, any criticisms aside, this place is exactly the kind of place you want to go to if you want to experience the vibe a small-town U.S. diner. Uncle Dudley can come be the entertainment at one of my kid’s birthdays. He can tell us stories about what he likes to do in Willard, Ohio. Just don’t make us any pizza steaks.More

The staff was helpful in being upfront that they only accept cash or check. There is a decent sized menu & the pricing is reasonable (my friend & I got 2 dinners, sodas, & an extra side all for less than $26). I took some...leftovers home for lunch the next day. Try the roast beef!! Everything seemed clean & the staff new the regulars.More

I live in town and in the 27 years only gone a few times. There is better restaurants in the area to choose from. Each time we went was slow service, dirty dishes and food had no flavor, very bland.

Hometown place with homemade pies and tasty food with great prices. The only thing lacking is an updated atmosphere...looks like a renovation would be in order, based on competitors.
