This is simply a "must go" place in Boone. After all, the town is named for him! Family style, well-prepared country fare. Ham biscuits are heavenly. All food is cooked just like Mama cooked! You can take left overs with you. They even provide the napkins and carry out bag. The fried chicken is mouthwatering and the county steak is delicious.

The food is served family style, and the cost includes drinks, food and dessert. Everything was very fresh and good, there was just too much of it. I felt guilty when we left so much on the table.

While the food was good, I would not drive two hours to eat here again.

While renting a cabin in a nearby town, we ventured to Grandfather Mountain and stopped in Boone afterwards for dinner. First I have to mention that you can't beat the southern hospitality there! Every staff member was cheery & friendly (plus who doesn't love that accent). The food is served family style: your choice of beverage and salad served with their home made ranch dressing (salad was so so but chilled), then came the fried chicken, southern style steak, mashed potatoes & gravy, cole slaw (very yummy), corn, green beans, biscuits, ham biscuits (my fave), spiced apples and then your choice of banana pudding, chocolate cake or strawberry shortcake for dessert. All for $16.95 - cash only but there is an ATM on the location. The staff was attentive and came back several times asking if we'd like more of anything. Great price if you're a big eater or have a large group. Some tables had lazy susans on them which would have been very handy to pass the food around. We had a window seat that looked out to their beautifully landscaped yard. All is all a very pleasant experience.

This place is a historic must visit landmark in Boone. The food is down home true southern style cooking. Every wonderful dish is served family style by a fabulous waitstaff, and you can order seconds and thirds and so on. Please do yourself a favor and stop in. You won't be disappointed with breakfast, lunch or dinner.

If you are looking for some wonderful country cooking that you don't even have to order, then you have to come to the Dan'l Boone Inn, in Boone NC. Yes both named for the pioneer that helped shape our country.
The selection of meats, vegs, breads and deserts are the best anywhere.

You don't want to miss out on this wonderful place if you are in the area and yes like the title says, the weather is wonderful as well!
