       No More BUCKY’S BBQ!!

You “old-timers” know that awhile back, I raved about a BBQ joint named Bucky’s. The joint had two locations, one in Boca Raton and the other in Fort Lauderdale. I have to tell you, these joints made some of the best ribs, chicken, burgers and  corn-bread that I have ever eaten.

Now follow me…About 7 months ago, I heard that Bucky’s had signed a deal with a group of “money” guys and Dwanye Wade of the Miami Heat to open a “nationwide” chain of Wade-Flash sports bars. From what I was told, the first location was going to be in Chicago.

Last week, I drove by both Bucky’s locations and low and behold, both were closed and had window banners indicating that WADE SPORTS BARS were coming.

Now… Let me say, that WE have lost two great BBQ joints…but what is, is.  Hopefully, the new CONCEPT will be terrific. Only time will tell.

    Just wanted to update my original January 30, 2008 writeup…well the two Bucky’s were converted into two D. Wade Sports Bars…yesterday I drove by both locations and low and behold, both D. Wade Sports Bars were closed and the locations had for rent signs on them…amazing how, a business could go from 2 fabulous bbq rib joints to “out of business” in the span of something like 7 months. I’ll bet you, that a “business dispute” caused the downfall of this business. Anway…South Florida lost 2 really great bbq loactions.

    The guy who developed Bucky’s menu has opened a new place in Royal Palm Beach, FL called “Black Canyon Grill”

    Mmmmmm: Just had a chance to read your post. If you check, I have already eaten at Black Canyon and written the joint up. That writeup was posted on 7/20/08. Terrific food.

    Thanks for reading…

    I have 4 Bucky’s Bar-B-Q locations in Greenville, SC. I started 11 years ago and have the name Bucky’s registered. I am not connected to the Boca places whatsoever. Come see us sometime.
