We stopped here on a recommendation from one of the staff at Luray Caverns. It's right downtown and easy to find. It's definitely a mom-and-pop type operation with lots of locals in attendance. I think that speaks volumes about the place. We were seated quickly and but waited quite a while for our food to come out. It was not... More

The Ribeye steak was to die for, BUT, the oysters that came with it were hard and dry. They've outdone to local steakhouse with their ribeye both with quality and price.

Stopped in for lunch had "pick 2". Your choice of small salad (including chilli) and half a sandwich. Perfect for a light meal and the chilli was delicious. Ryan was a delightful server and the host was helpful with local information. Would definitely visit again. Highly recommend.

Love this place. If I were a local, I'd eat at Uncle Buck's on the regular. Servers are friendly and atmosphere is relaxed. A no pressure experience with lots of great diner style menu choices. Great place for families with small children. Something on the menu for everybody. Located close to Luray Caverns which makes it a great stop before... More

We had eaten here several years ago during a big snow storm, were visiting again so decided to find it. We ended up getting different things, my husband enjoyed his cheesesteak, my son his pb & j, and I enjoyed the wings. I search out good wings everywhere we travel, and they were excellent. Great place, great staff.

Choice of booths and tables and a handicapped interior ramp side entrance made this place easy for us to visit. We were entertained by lots of old horse racing memorabilia, promptly served by an attentive and friendly "old school waitress." Meal of a fried chicken platter came quickly and was hot and tasty...good sized portions too at a fair price... More
