Bo Bites – Buck And Rider

(Lyrics – Wiz Khalifa – Black And Yellow)

Yeah, un huh, you know what it is
Everything I Yelp, I Yelp and sing
Yeah, uh huh, eating that’s something
What I ordered off the bar, that’s drinking

Repping my town when you see me you know I’m Yelping

I finally attended Buck & Rider with some friends for a celebration. The place is hard to get into since the Camelback traffic during happy hour could be hectic. Thank goodness for complimentary valet!

My friends and I sat at the Patio which only had happy hour drinks during that time. Happy Hour food was only at the inside bar area; weird, but whatever! I went for the “Your Money or Your Life”; bourbon, benedictine, combier and orange bitters; tasted like an Old Fashion to me. As we sat we started with some appetizers. I ordered their crab stuffed Hush Puppies. Overall, it had the perfect amount of breading giving it a crunchy start while the stuffed crabs were soft to the bite and the sauce atop had a horseradish like minor sting. Probably my favorite of the night. For my entree I went for the Scallops; atop a bed of polenta, mushrooms, peas, pancetta, onions, and sun dried tomatoes. The dish was beautifully plated! The scallops were cooked to perfection, but overall I thought the dish lacked a punch to my palates. Almost felt like all the ingredients were there for presentation purposes.

In the end, Buck & Rider is a cool place to hangout. Drink specials are cheap during happy hour. If you’re definitely a seafood lover then this place is must try for you. However, I just didn’t feel like it was a fit for my taste buds – Enjoy!
