🙋🏻‍♂️Newly opened Bucks Bar has been all the chat 💭 down the Merchant City. It seems that chicken/waffle combos are the in thing and this new venue is a welcome addition to the corner next to Maggie Mays. Inside it feels like you have been transported to 1950s USA with rockabilly music like a genuine 50s diner. Some very NSFW signage provides the lols, so parents might think twice about taking the kids here.
Service is outstanding with friendly warm banter. For my meal, I choose the Flaming Mac n Cheese Chicken and Waffles. What a combination. It’s the day after more Christmas party’s and this boy wants carbs 🙋🏻‍♂️, which this meal from Bucks bar delivers tenfold. I love my spice and this dish is HOT 🔥 It was the best mac n cheese I have had in a long time, and furthermore, the chicken was amazing so tender and crunchy batter which wasn’t greasy like a KFC. For sides, I had some Korean Fried Chicken Wings and Sweet Potato Fries
💁🏻‍♀️Entering the venue, I loved the cheeky innuendo of the signage as I have quite a mischevious personality, I also loved the 1950s feel of the joint. I opted for the MexiCheese Chicken Burger - Tex Mex cheese sauce, American cheese, jalapeños and crisp lettuce, with the salt and chilli fries. This dish is a sight for sore eyes, with a large portion. Very tasty with tender chicken with a crispy coating. If you love cheese you'll love this. The chips were seasoned well and very spicy.
Bonus Opinion: Ordering a Mojito, I found it to be a bit overly sweet, and this seemed to be the case for the other cocktails the others had. For food, I ordered The Buck Mac - a chicken "burger" with Mac sauce, crisp lettuce and American cheese. This was a very large bit of chicken in a nice crispy coating with a bun covering a small amount of the chicken( with cheese). A very generous American sized portion, full of flavour and very tasty. Perfect if you're hungry.
Overall, the vibes and atmosphere, as well as the scran, make it potentially addictive, encouraging you to return to this fun venue. @bucksbartrongate #glasgow#instafood
