Most modern cuisine is a continuation of classic dishes, just as a computer is a slightly modified typewriter and a washing machine is a river in a box. Revel in palatable progress with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of Southern fare at Uncle Bucks All American Pub & Grub in Salisbury.
Uncle Bucks serves up casual Southern fare and American classics beneath motorcycle-laden décor. Menu entrees playfully dubbed “Hoofs, Feathers, and Fins” include tender cuts of beef, chicken, and genetic ancestors of the ichthyosaur. Chefs slice up the hand-cut rib eye ($18.99) to order before sizzling them over an open flame in a blackend, Cajun, or steak seasoning. Guests can satiate seafood hankerings and deeper understandings of Jules Verne literature with the tilapia fillet ($11.99) grilled to succulence in the confines of an iron skillet. More than 20 burgers creatively reinvent the frontiers of hand-held eats with preparations such as the Smokin’ Stogie wrap, which rolls up smoked sausage, grilled chicken, bacon, and jalapeños ($7.99).
Inside, oak paneling buffets the lower quarters of yellow walls as motorcycle memorabilia blanket the rest. Patrons can linger indoors to enjoy live music or a belly-button-bursting dessert, such as the deep-fried apple pie à la mode ($5.99), to complete the transition from an innie to an outie, or head outdoors to dine beneath the eatery's white-and-black-striped awnings.
