Buck is a master at grilling and that takes a lot for this southern girl to say, but he knows how to get er done. His wings are to die for, please go by and try his place out and tell him a southern girl said hello

Got a gift certificate so decided to try it. Food was less than average. Portions were small, taste was lacking. The side of mac and cheese appeared that it came out of a box. Glad I didn't pay for it. Won't return

We stayed in Auburn, Mass. for the night, and found this place accidently. Very small, and tucked in off the road between other buildings, it is a wonder we saw it. We stopped in to check it out, and left there with a bag full of take out to eat back at the hotel room. The restaurant is very small... More

Laid back, small, cute. Good ribs and pulled pork. One of my favorite items was the corn bread stuffing but they don't always have it on menu. Lots of choices of meat. Cucumber salad is tasty. Lots of sauces to try. Everything is homemade which is a lovely effort that I appreciate.

My husband is VERY picky about the quality of his food and the cleanliness of the establishment (he's Italian, so every meal is viewed as his possible last meal on earth!), and he loves the ribs, as do my grown sons. Not cheap, but a good value and barbeque is pretty darn authentic (I used to live in the south).... More

Not a fancy dine in place. Pulled pork and ribs are great. Plenty of sides. Love the mac and cheese and home made cole slaw. Messy but delicious.

I have had a large take out order, and eaten in several times. I used to love Tennessee’s in Milford, but they closed and I have been without BBQ near home for some time. Growing up down south it is the kind of thing you start to miss. Buck’s is great and I highly recommend it.

I have tried many of the sides all of the meat offerings at Bucks' and they are all wonderful. The meats are flavorful and tender, the BBQ sauces range from sweet to hot and shades in between. The meats are so flavorful that I don't use sauce often. This past weekend I served the pulled pork to a gathering of... More

Had the baby back ribs, brisket, baked beans, cornbread, and drinks. The place was neat and clean and has some tables if you want to eat-in. There is small bar with utensils and 4 different BBQ sauces for your meats. The ribs were precooked somewhere and served wrapped in plastic. wrap. They were VERY dry and the cornbread was hard...
