Whenever we are in the area we always try to fit in a meal at Daniel Boone. We have been coming here for over thirty years and it hasn't changed much. The food is pretty much the same and served family style. You get lots of vegetables, ham biscuits, fried chicken, and Salisbury steak. They offer free refills on everything... More

So much food really good and our waitress was really sweet. You are allowed to take home anything you can wrap up. I took the ham biscuits with me and had with my breakfast the next morning. The food is served family style. We went on Mother's Day which was dumb on our part but actually only had to wait... More

There is almost always a wait but it's worth the wait. They do not take credit/debit cards but they have an ATM on site (with fees) so bring cash. Excellent food. Great service. Don't miss out on this place when in Boone.

We went for breakfast. We had to wait a while at 8:15 am so keep that in mind. When we left the line was out the door and wrapped around the building. Its family style where they have a menu and bring it all to your table and you get refills. The food was good. Not great but good. The... More

My husband and I were visiting graduation weekend, and were VERY fortunate to be seated without waiting in line. It was raining that day too...might have had something to do with it. We were seated and waited on right away, and we were taken care of! The meal is brought to your table homestyle in serving dishes, and we ate... More

So many people love this place, the history, location and the food, that they are willing to stand in line to eat there and they will all tell you, "it's worth it!"

Okay I suppose. A bit pricey and not much selection. I’d say there are better places but this place stays very busy so it must just be me.

The price you pay is rewarded here. My wife and I came here on our mini trip and was totally fulfilled and filled up. It is a country spread and the food is endless and amazing. The fried chicken is probably the best I have ever eaten and the building is historic and fun. A total experience. Beats every place... More

Family style dining with plenty of food. Something for everyone. Different menu of items served for brunch than are served for dinner yet there is always a line. The locals and tourists both enjoy this restaurant. Staff is friendly and always replenishing the food and drink.
