When you travel sometimes it just works out to ask the local people where they eat at. Everybody told me about this place and it didn't disappoint. The place has been open since 2004 and have yet to have a paper menu or create a website. From the local traffic/customer's that I saw coming in and out of this place... More

Chipped beef gravy over biscuits was delicious. Hubby got the eggs Benedict and it was tasty too, loved the southern smoky flavor. Boys got chocolate chip pancakes...they were huge. Thick, fluffy & had plenty of chocolate chips. Service was pleasant.

We came here for a quick bite in between cave tours. We were seated and ordered immediately - very simple sandwiches. It took over 45 minutes for the food to come. The restaurant was not very busy but we noticed that many people were sitting without food. When the food finally came, it was good enough, nothing special. The waitress... More

I'm hoping we visited here on an off day, but this place wasn't my favorite. Our waitress was a bit on the grumpy side, and the food was just ok (weak-ish coffee, a weird fake-looking butter on the toast, and lemon squeezed onto the poached eggs, which is just weird). The place was really cute, though, and the host was... More

Uncle Buck's was one of two restaurants recommended in Luray. We thought it was just average. The best part of the dining experience was the wait staff who were friendly and attentive. The food was just average and we waited a lobg time for it to ne prepared. The rest rooms were dirty and the dining area itself needed a... More

Fast and friendly. So far the only place in Luray who could give out refills without me having to stop the waitress. I love that they serve breakfast all day! Foods average but in combination with service definitely a decent stop for the late to risers.

I'll toss in my own two cents before I add my review. My opinion would be that 90% of the negative reviews are based on a comparison from a restaurant in an area with a larger population and a quicker turnover time per table. If that's your baseline, then you're going to be frustrated no matter where you go. My... More

We walked in to Uncle Buck's at 7pm and were pleased to hear that there was only a 10 minute wait. Nothing special inside, but we expected that. The food was average, but again, we expected that. Their service, however, needs a lot of attention. We have three kids 9 and under with us. As we got seated, our waitress... More

Good breakfast and service. Plenty of parking behind restaurant and in front. Across from pink movie theater.
