Breakfast is good, lunch and dinner so-so. VCs and Silicon Valley execs hang out there because their ranches and estates are minutes away. Prices to match. $12.50 for a spinach salad and $13.50 for a basic burger and fries? Yikes. But go there often and you will see stuff on the walls and ceilings that are theatre-of-the-bizarre. Very entertaining.

Buck's is a blast. While the food is standard type diner fare, perhaps with a little more creativity, the memorabilia here is quite a hoot. We were met by a friendly host who seated us quickly and we were served quickly as well. We had a reasonably good meal but the best part came after the meal. We got up... More

Whether you go to Buck's to be entertained by the wall decor (look for the stuff frog playing the upright piano), your friends and family or the awesome staff - you will never be disappointed. The food is "like home" goodness, delivered with a smile and some of the best commentary ever. I have had breakfast and dinner here with... More

Wait time was 45 minutes for a party of 5 for Sunday lunch...pretty much worth it, too. Probably half the appeal is the decor: funky, fun, lots of mementos decorating the walls and ceilings. Food was good...not amazing, but we didn't try everything. Very pleasant service and relatively fast given the crowd.

Had a quick dinner here while visiting friends in Woodside. We ordered two Buck burgers (no cheese) and two beers. The bill was $44.68…. Pretty sure 2 bud lights haven't gone up that much. Keep in mind this is a regular run-of-the-mill burger like you would make at home. We concluded that we were ridiculously overcharged. Not worth the argument.

Buck's is a restaurant to which I must introduce each guest, as it is soooo unique! "Buck" greets you when you see him hanging over the bar staring at all. (Buck is the buffalo head over the bar.) The food is plentiful and really delicious. And the staff is on top of everything! Do make reservations before you go, as... More

Many occasions have found members of my family of myself alone. Eating at Bucks. Breakfast or lunch usually. Lunch might be 2 or 3pm before I drive "over the hill" to my home in the redwoods. they usually have folks waiting. Maybe they have reservations. But the times I drop by are the times the locals eat. I'm guessing when... More
