We love to eat at local diners rather than chain restaurants. This place is definitely a local favorite. Their prices are excellent, their staff is friendly, the food is good but the timing was terrible. We got seated right away, it didn't take long to have our orders taken, but it was probably 45-minutes or more to get simple breakfasts.... More

We always stop in at Uncle Bucks when we are in Luray (which is about once a month) for breakfast or dinner or sometimes both. This past week we hosted my son's wedding rehearsal dinner there and it was perfect. They closed the bar and we held it in there. The service was amazing and the food for 24 people... More

The ribs were outstanding and very large portions. Our left overs were our lunch the next day. Fast and friendly service.

Felt like I was in Momma's kitchen! try the scrapple. Asked for a locals joint. I found it! the service was attentive, courteous, and so welcoming. This is a spot that we will always visit while in town.

We each had the breakfast special, scrambled with bacon and cheese and scrambled with peppers and onions. The portions were very generous. Service was very good (Sally). It beats fast food all to pieces.

We had one meal here whilst visiting the Skyline trail. Uncle Bucks had a very extensive menu which simply can't have all been fresh. A heavy reliance on the fryers here. Very ordinary food in a very dated restaurant. We ordered one beer and a steak each - which were OK and not expensive, but it wasn't for us. Seems... More

Uncle Buck's fresh local rainbow trout was delicious and our server was both prompt and friendly. The sides were average at best. The coleslaw was swimming in mayonnaise and the fried green tomatoes had little flavor and were served without any dipping sauce. The ice tea was really good. We would stop in again but try different sides. The restaurant... More

A friend recommended this to me. My wife and I were in the area today and decided to stop in for lunch. I ordered the open face turkey sandwich with mashed potatoes and "smothered in gravy." The mashed potatoes were not fresh and were not hot - just warm when served and cold by the time I finished my meal.... More
