If you are near Burkesville its well worth the effort to enjoy the Friday Country Buffet. The food is absolutely marvelous, seasoned perfectly, hot and plentiful. The owner/manager is very pleasant and friendly. The servers are pleasant and friendly as well. This is a buffet you are sure to enjoy and I offer my strongest recommendation that you try it.

I had a cheeseburger and my wife had the breaded porkloin sandwich. Both were excellent. This place reminds me of the drive in restaurants from childhood. Great burgers and malts! Don't miss stopping in here if you are in Burkesville.

After many visits to Burkesville finally gave this place a look. The outside leaves a lot left to be desired. While the interior wasn't much better, the BBQ was excellent and meeting Mr. Norman Hamilton was a highlight of the trip. Hands down one of the nicest guys on the planet. He built his Fire Pit by hand, and is extremely proud of it. While my coleslaw and potato salad was ok, the generous portions of Pulled Pork BBQ with his homemade Sauce was excellent.. Despite the lack of interior, he does have several antiques inside, (but will not sale them, I already tried). Meeting Mr. Norman Hamilton is definitely a highlight of the trip, as he is one of the most pleasant men to talk too. He cooks everything himself, over his homemade fire pit.. Will definitely be returning next year.

The only downside to Annie Ruby's is that they're only open for breakfast & lunch Monday through Saturday! The food is fresh, reasonably priced and varies day to day. The decor includes antiques from the old Smith Pharmacy that occupied this spot for years & years - very interesting.

Dale Hollow Lake has many, many beautiful views around this large lake. The "resort" (I use quotes because as you drive around the lake to the various marinas you will find everything/place is called resort, even the dumps). The resort itself is very nice, get a lakeside room because the view is breathtaking. Other than that it is a pretty typical state lodge. Dining experience is hit and miss. They have changeover in staff so depends on who is cooking. They do offer a buffet. Unlike another reviewer I had no trouble Not getting the buffet and ordering a chicken breast sandwich and my friend a beef hoagy. Both of these sandwiches were good and topped with fresh ingredients. French fries were not greasy. Drinks refilled quickly. Go out on the patio and take a look at the view if you are just stopping to eat. Overall good for a state "resort". currently they are having snakes, so watch where you walk, they have signs posted.

Elray was a very pleasant surprise. The food was plentiful, hot, authentic and very tasty. The service was great. We were pleased enough we visited again the second night in town. Burkesville is a very small town with limited dining options, making the Elray a real find. We are very big fans of Mexican food, and not easy to please. Early was great!

From burgers, to a salad bar, to fish or barbque, Mike's landing offers a great food choice on Dake Hollow Lake. Drive ups and dock your boat. Easy peasy. Gas? No problem. They will even pump it for you,
Clean restrooms and a general store and tackle shop await the lakeside shopper. Soft serve I e cream--6 flavors-- is always a hit with the lake crowd.
By far, Mike's is the best boating drive-up restaurant on FLe Hollow Lake.

We had 3 different waitresses and they constantly messed up our orders. The food was bad, really bad. My catfish was soggy and inedible. The kids chicken didn't taste like anything remotely closed to chicken. My wife's hot brown had raw bacon..

And staffing seems minimal. The cashier serves as the order taker for carryout, taker of money for dine in, prepares drinks, and helps put the pizzas together. One waitress was handling the entire restaurant when we visited and two other gals were working on orders behind the counter.
The place us busy with walk in diners and people coming in to pick up carry out. You have to be patient as your wait for drinks, refills, food, and your bill will be long. But the pizza is good although the salads (lettuce) could be fresher. As there are few places to eat in Burkesville and the other pizza place in town (Godfathers Pizza) is in the Marathon gas station, Pizza Hut is a good option for a sit down meal.
The pizza and salad buffet is only offered on Tuesdays. Go early for dinner to beat the crowd.

This is by far one of the best Godfather's pizza that I've been to.. They put extra cheese on all of their pizza which is a plus. The Pepperoni and cheese are awesome, but the sausage is a tad bit too spicy for me.
