@buckysnotabrownie, I think I love you.
I’ve been following Bucky’s for a few years now, I think? Admittedly, I’ve ogled and salivated over their photos, but just never got around to dining there, despite spending an inordinate amount of time in Poblacion. (Well, inordinate for someone who lives in the Dirty South.) I decided to rectify this by finally stepping through their sliding door a couple of weeks ago.
Bucky’s features an elegantly spare, streamlined menu, but dammit, I think they KNOCK EVERY SINGLE DISH OUT OF THE PARK. The cauliflower salad we ordered? The most savory and moreish bunch of greens and veg I’ve ever had. I seriously couldn’t stop shovelling it into my mouth, and felt legitimately sad when my feeding frenzy was over. Fried chicken? Juicy and tender, with a crunchy golden crust, served with smooth, buttery, creamy-dreamy mashed potatoes. Baked ziti? The best, sexiest bowl of baked pasta outside of my own cooking. I gotta hand it to them, they know their ragu.
Almost a week later and I still dream of the cauliflower salad and baked ziti. I gotta get me some!!! People, BUCKY’SAIN’TPLAYIN’AROUND. Get your butts over there, stat. #zomato #bookyph
