OK for what it is

A&W used to be a drive in and now is a sit in. The nostalgia is gone. The food is OK and the inside tries to be like old times but somehow fails. The seating is rustic and the food is OK, but not enough for me to return.

I know this is a low end fast (??) food restaurant, and set my expectations accordingly. Ordering was much more difficult than it should have been. I wanted a double hamburger, which is not on the menu. I asked if they had one, and how much. Was told around $3.75. Ok, anything in it? Just sauce. Can I get lettuce... More

What makes Buck's special? The signed school sports shirts covering the walls and ceiling, the genuinely friendly and cheerful staff and the consistently decent food we affectionately refer to as Drive-In Theatre Eats. We have only two items to suggest: dip the chilled glass mugs so they have that nostalgic frosted look and offer soup again once in a while,... More

The buger , fries and a small rootbeer topped $10, seemed a bit greasy, and was dressed with far too much mustard for my taste.

Bucks is an ok place to go. It is a bit of a travel back in time event. They have supported kids and events there for years. They have the car shows every week, and old fashioned burgers and floats.

I've been here... More

I recently visited the A&W it brought memories of my youth, we had one in my home Town. It was the best. Best Hamburgers etc. This place was not that close. The Papa Burger, was a handful by that I mean you better have a Napkin or it was all over the place. A little to much on the secret... More

When you walk into Buck's you feel like you have stepped back into time. You fully expect to see a group of giggly girls in poodle skirts with their fellas out for burgers and shakes. The burgers are always freshly made and very tasty and, of course, the rootbeer floats are delicious. They always a 'flavor of the the month'... More
