I've driven by this little place for years but never got around to stopping in because they were normally open only during the week. Originally a very easy place to find with a Tiki Hut in front and a hugh Moose on top of the building. The City either because of Zoning or Building Permits made the take down the... More

I was curious about Buckos in Mooresville,NC after reading reviews stating "best hotdog ever" and "best hotdog in town so I had to see for myself. I must say the reviews were not misleading. I would compare them to what I had at Tanners or Greens Hotdogs in Charlotte years ago, just a great old fashioned all the way for... More

Bucko's is an interesting restaurant. You can order in the drive-thru next to a huge moose, or order at window/eat outside. The eating area looks like a tiki hut. I only order the cheesesteak when I go and it is delicious. It is freshly made upon order and has an amazing melted cheese. The onion rings are a must as... More

It is always a good experience for me and my husband. Very friendly staff. Never a long waiting time for our meals.

Buckos has all kinds of great sandwiches. We had a job in the area and went daily several times. It's on the lines of a Dairy Queen.

I can only speak for the regular cheeseburger, but despite waiting for it the burger was barely warm. It also tasted like a frozen bulk burger like you would buy at Sam's Club. Cool Moose statue though!

I've seen this little take out joint for some years but never stopped - BIG mistake! It's quirky in a run down kind of way, on the iffy side of town, giant Moose statue with tiki hut sort of theme. Just assumed it was a low quality drive thru --- so wrong! Noticed some reviews on Trip Advisor recently praising... More

The food is good, served quickly and fairly priced. The BBQ and chicken sandwich are something that we have had on occasion. The staff is friendly. This is a local favorite. The French fries are great.

I have been going to Buckos for several years and always enjoyed their food. Tonights meal was one of the worst I've ever had. The fried pickles were soggy with very little breading. The french fries were also soggy. I asked for loaded hot dogs without chili and they only had coleslaw on them and they were cold.

I have been here numerous times but I never had tried the pimento burger! I tried it today for the first time, and it was amazing! I got a pimento burger all the way which is: pimento cheese, mustard, ketchup, chili, slaw, and onions. Boy was is an awesome burger! I also got a side of fried pickles, which were... More
