“Best burger hands down!”
Review of Buckos

Ranked #123 of 271 Restaurants in Mooresville
Restaurant details
Reviewed August 16, 2010

If you want an amazing burger and family atmosphere you gotta get a Buckos! The Big Bucko with cheese all the way, REAL fries and shakes (made with REAL ice cream from one of the long standing family owned ice cream business in Mooresville---it couldn't get better. The campy patio overlooks the local traffic going by while the huge moose looks on from the back of the drive thru. It used to sit out front, but that's another story. The moose does get to come out front during the holidays...complete with holiday lights. Yes, you may have a wait a bit to place and pick up your order, but you always get service with a smile, upbeat exchange and the best burger, fries and shake at the Lake!

Buckos is unique. The fast food is so-o-o above all the others....but you must have patience to get food there. It might take forever to get to the window to pick up your food.
They don't get in a hurry...no, not at all. However, Jean is the absolute person to dream up the most weird burgers or Hotdogs or anything else that crosses her mind to serve. It has Always been a Great Experience to go there..even if i do get angry at the wait time. I also ask for things to be double-bagged due to the drive home and the leakage from the thin white bags they use. They can't understand why I ask for that but they should.
I have never had a hamburger all the way with Pimento cheese on it also. I got one just to see what the hell it could be...it was fantastic! Get one and ask for extra napkins and a double bag! LOL!
You can never get anything here that is Not Good! Everything is GOOD!
Now around Christmas time they might just close for months. They might close if Jean is pissed off or if her daughter has has a kid. That is what is great about this place. They close. They Open. They care about family.
The food is extremely Great!
If Jean would help me with recipes....I would like to buy this place..she has her priorties in order.
This place is a trip. Make a trip and go order anything. I promise you..everything they offer is good and probably the best you have ever had!
