Plenty of food brought to you in a family style environment. Their country biscuits are very good. They serve you several vegetables, fried chicken, meat with gravy, and then a choice of desserts. Pretty good service,

This is a tourist trap. Food is expensive. Basically it is the Golden Corral food served family style for $15. You can do be better.

A visit to Boone wouldn't be complete without a stop by Daniel Boone in. Breakfast or Lunch both are equally wonderful. Served family style and plenty to go around with refills on everything but the meat (if I remember correctly). You won't be disappointed at...More
