I don't know quit sure what people expect anymore but some of the reviews I've read about Dan'l Boone just blow me away. It's not the best around by any means but they have really good food. And for the people that complain their vegetables come from a can, where the heck do you think the other restaurants get them, uh, yeah, FROM A CAN!!!

Just ate at the Daniel Boone for the second time. If you want large quantities of mediocre food this is for you. This is a family style restaurant. There is no menu you are served what is on the nightly menu which typically includes two proteins. One of which is always fried chicken. A couple of vegetables straight out of a can and some biscuits. You can eat as much as you want they will bring you more. The biscuits are by far the best part. They do not serve alcohol and they don't accept credit cards. Cost is $17 per person. Save your money and find a Cracker Barrel if you want that type of food. It's cheaper and better.

We went for breakfast Saturday and then lunch Sunday. Breakfast was good, basic food (WONDERFUL cinnamon biscuits!!!!) and plentiful. Lunch was every bit as good, which FANTASTIC fried chicken. We are definitely going back!!

This is home cooked food which is good but don't expect to go in and order. Its a meal brought to your table for everyone to share. Cash only...

This place has been a tradition for years but I cannot recommend. Old college friends wanted to go there recently and, unfortunately, it was as disappointing as it was prior to the recent remodeling. Ham and chicken were okay, but a small bowl of lettuce with only ranch dressing plopped down with no options combined with canned vegetables just doesn't cut it for the money. Yes, the lines are still out the door many times, but can't help but believe most is for nostalgia. Plus, they do not take debit/credit cards, only an ATM in the lobby. This is not a one time visit review. Since we moved here full time, we've had many friends wanting to do "the Daniel Boone thing". Sorry, if you're looking for what they used to be, Chatlee Springs just north of Jefferson, is it. It's out of the way but is worth the drive compared with Daniel Boone. Sad to have to say it, but you can rest on your past so long.
