Description: BUCU Burger Bar & Bakery is an exciting new burger/bakery concept restaurant in NJ based on custom burgers, scratch baked cupcakes and cookies, frozen yogurt and premium ice cream shakes.The restaurant has two distinct aspects to it.The “BURGER BAR” is devoted to making burgers customized to your specs. You are able to pick the elements of the burger and make it your own. Just choose your bun, burger or burgers, toppings and sauces. We have also composed a few tasty versions of our own. In addition, we serve fresh, hand cut french fries, sweet potato fries, onion rings and some monster toppings (don’t miss the smoky Pulled Pork on a burger or on the fries – Awesome!!) Rounding out the menu are 3 versions of wings and fresh Artisan sandwiches including fresh Turkey, Ham and many unique combinations (Cuban, Italian etc…) in Panini form or as a cold sandwich.The “BAKERY & MILK BAR” is devoted to serving:Fresh baked items such as “made from scratch” cupcakes (The Best Cupcakes on Earth) and cookies in many flavors.Yummy Frozen Yogurt and Cookie/Ice Cream Sandwiches are also available – here you select a fresh baked bottom cookie – an ice cream center – and a top cookie… Totally custom and totally delicious.Last but not least, we use Ultra Premium Ice Cream in our shakes, cups and cookie sandwiches.

This restaurant has suddenly closed after three years. The concept of hamburgers and cupcakes (with milk!) never did much for me.

I love the shakes at this place. You choose a cupcake and ice cream flavors and they blend them together. I usually take my nieces and they love them too. As far as the food is concerned have only had it once but people around me seemed to be enjoying theirs. Be aware it is not your typical franchise burger... More

We received a $15 gift card to bucu, which wasn't enough. We were still hungry when we left, and we don't eat that much. Way overpriced for a fast food place and the size of the burgers, which were small. Even Wendy's has them beat. We won't be returning.

I really like this hamburger joint. Burgers are fresh and tasty. You can make them up into a variety of combos. The fries are dangerously delish! Cupcakes and cookies are pretty good; a little on the sweet side, but good overall. My young kids love this place, including the shakes. Fast friendly service on top of the good eats makes... More

Great place for a casual meal. The burgers, salads, cupcakes, milkshakes are all exceptional! I definitely prefer their burgers over Bobby's burger palace. The staff is very helpful and the place is spotless. Give it a try, you'll like it!

Found this place randomly after leaving the outlets..had the best veggie burger of my life and perhaps the best cupcake of my life. I cannot wait to go back. I wish I could have tried all the cupcakes!

After seeing its website online, we decided to try Bucu Burger. Bucu is a casual place where you order at the counter, are given a number, and then your food is delivered to your seat. The good: The restaurant is clean, and the staff were working diligently to keep it that way. The menu is simple and ordering is easy.... More

We tried this new place for the first time the other night and were pleasantly surprised at the quality and flavor of the burgers and the fries, which were the best I've had in a long time. Not typical frozen fries, but fresh-cut daily fries. The cupcakes are not huge, which is good. One is a nice single serving without... More

BuCu was pretty good. So, on the spectrum -- sure, it's much better than fast food. Also better than the TGIF's, Houlihan's, etc., and a very good alternative to other non-chain pub-grub places. The burger was pretty good. Not the best of the so called "chains" but certainly near the top -- overall, a pretty good burger. I enjoyed it.... More
