I'm not sure why it took me so long to find Tucker's. But I have been a regular at this restaurant since I discovered it last year. The service is quick, efficient and always friendly. The food is fresh and delicious. The French fries as another reviewer mentioned are the best in town. The grilled chicken quesadilla shouldn't be missed.... More

I come for lunch on a monthly basis. They have something for everyone: everything from salads and burgers to the best grilled chicken gyro in town! I don't ever order anything else because it's so so good!!!

The Boone Mall is just off highway 321, or Blowing Rock Rd, Boone’s main business strip. Tucker’s Cafe is easy to find near the center of this small town shopping mall. Tucker’s has been there for almost 25 years and has a strong reputation with locals that is well deserved. The occasional out-of-town visitor who wanders in would be pleasantly... More

Tucker's is a "come-back-to" restaurant. It is always delicious and the waiters are very friendly. It's located in Boone Mall. We enjoy the extensive menu, offering vegetarian and healthy menu items, in addition to burgers, fries, etc.

This is an "ok" mall restaurant. Fair amount of variety. Prices are a little high for the portions. Nice and clean.

We had dinner here yesterday. We have eaten here before on our visits to Boone. It is a small diner inside the mall. The food is good, the service is good as well. For home style cooking this is the place to go.

We really appreciate your comments. I would like to know what your likes are on our menu and if there is any menu item that we don't have and that we could try as a Daily Special to see if it could be a winner. Don Lovejoy Owner More
