Now this is how you do a diner!

Buck's is a Diner like you imagine a Diner should be. Interesting, eclectic decor, cozy tables and booths and a very unpretentious, homey feel.

Buck's is the place where some of the major deals for Silicon Valley have been discussed. It offers a wide variety of foods and all of the menu items are excellent. Great atmosphere! Just looking around will pass the time as your meal is prepared. Reasonable prices and great food.

Had breakfast on a Sunday morning at this quirky coffee shop type restaurant. The decor is all over the place which makes it fun. The noise volume was a bit high. We had to wait a bit for a table. There was a mix of family groups as well as couples and friends. We had omelets that were tasty. They... More

MUST visit if you're around Woodside. An institution and historical place both for foodies and for tech lovers: here many great deals have been closed (Tesla, PayPal and more). If you're lucky, you could be meeting some great entrepreneurs or vcs from the Valley. The owner will be pleased to tell you more about his amazing collection and restaurant history.... More

We use to have a tradition that we go to bucks every year after a camping trip. They have a scavenger hunt which is great for the kids. But as the kids get older you realize the fun goes away and the you focus on the food and the rest of the place. The food is not that great, not... More

A Woodside tradition. Kids and kids-at-heart will marvel at all of the cool stuff that adorns the walls and hang from the ceiling. Wait staff is always pleasant and attentive. Great menu, not to mention cocktail service. Be prepared to wait for a table on weekend mornings.

This is THE place for any meal in the San Francisco (Woodside) area. It is an 'institution' - it has been there for years! Their food is incredible. I always go for breakfast and everything I have had was fabulous. My fav is the Eggs Benedict which is perfect. Everyone else had spectacular meals as well. Besides the food, the... More

Buck's is a bit of a hole in the wall. Oftentimes, these places are best. Granted, they have been in business a long time and when I went for takeout on a Wednesday evening, the place was fairly full. The service was friendly and quick. The menu had many choices. But, my experience was disappointing in regards to the food.... More
