A good sports bar isn't just the perfect place to practice close-up magic on unsuspecting patrons; it's also a great spot to meet friends and share Burton Gilliam gossip. For $10, you get $25 worth of bar fare, beers, and Gilliamesque gossip at Bucks Sports and Spirits.
Nothing says victory like a sticky high-five full of ketchup and chili fries, and Buck’s Sports and Spirits provides plenty of quality napkins to go with its plates of gooey deliciousness. The upscale Brookhaven sports bar offers southern-style pub fare in a welcoming environment. Start with a tower of slow-cooked pork ribs ($9.95) in a sweet barbecue glaze, or opt for an order of the crab dip and pita chips ($9.95). A hearty selection of sandwiches, such as Buck's big beefy barn burger ($8.95) or the hand-full-o'-hen ($7.95), a char-broiled chicken sandwich, will satisfy hand-held carnivorous cravings. Uncle Bucky's almost-famous meatloaf with broccoli casserole ($12.95) or the wild snapper in a bag baked in parchment paper with crab meat, clams, and napa cabbage ($15.95) each satisfy homesick taste buds while serving as a distracting subject of small talk when the debate over the hunkiest state senators takes an awkward turn. If your vitamin-D deficiency has you down in the dumps, cheer up with a decadent dessert, such as the banana-pudding cheesecake ($4.95) or deep-fried favorites like golden, melty fried Reese's cups ($4.95) or Oreos ($4.95).
Watching the game over rounds of beers with buddies allows patrons to break the fourth wall of the TV screen with fist pumps and cheers. Whether rooting for the team or enjoying a dinner with friends, beer connoisseurs can hold round-table discussions about the merits of each bottled beer from Buck’s 99 offerings, while the full bar offers sweet and tart specialty cocktails such as the pomegranate-cranberry-mystery-ingredient concoction called the black martini ($7.95). Indecisive types can sip on three miniature martinis at once while enjoying the martini flight ($10.50) and taking in the evening's live music Wednesday through Sunday.
- The atmosphere was phenomenal! – Patricia P., Yelp
- Excellcent [sic] and unusual bar food choices. Personal favorites include the Chicken Pot Pie, Snapper in a Bag and the Grilled Romaine Wedge. Regarding bar food, don't know how they do it, but the Hot Italian is out of this world as well as the Fried Bratwurst. – Raleigh Foodie, Citysearch
- We ordered pickle chips as an appetizer and let me tell you they were fabulous. Light and crispy, just as explained on the menu. – Michelle 1980, Citysearch
