Buckaroo BBQ & Grill is popular with the after-work crowd hungry for some western-style food up near Bukit Panjang. And this Upper Bukit Timah Road restaurant is western on several fronts – not only is the food of the barbecue-and-burgers type, but the place has a distinctive First Nations vibe to it, with cigar store Indians and dream catchers presiding over an American feast fit for a chieftain. When it comes to the weekend, watch out for Buckaroo’s famous Sunday brunch offer – great for a family outing in Singapore.
Towering spires of onion rings, big burgers for dad, and little burgers for the kids. If you’re a street food fanatic in Singapore you might have encountered Buckaroo BBQ & Grill’s mobile food truck hawking traditional American and western-style food all over the city, but it’s their home turf at the Bukit Panjang end of Upper Bukit Timah Road that you want to pay a visit too for the real deal. The restaurant itself is a riot of red and white checked tablecloths, canteen-style communal tables, and curios culled from the pages of a cowboys and Indians comic.
Two signature dishes at Buckaroo BBQ & grill that you won’t want to miss out on are the hot and spicy buffalo wings (if you can take the heat ask for your spice level to be set to Kill) and the perfectly grilled 400g ribeye steak. Match those with an ice-cold beer and a tower of onion rings and your American diner experience is complete. Always popular with Bukit Panjang and Choa Chu Kang locals, you’ll definitely want to book ahead if you plan on dining in with Buckaroo’s beloved Sunday brunch. Choose from the big breakfast platter, Black Angus striploin minute steak with eggs, classic Eggs Benedict or sweet waffles or, if you can prove you’re 12 years old or under, an even longer list of fun dishes designed for Singapore’s smaller but no less adventurous appetites.
It's sad to know that they are closing soon. Hope they can find a new place and reopen for business!
always generous portions, loved the wings. usually not crowded until after 7. ordered soup bowl, nachos and wings tonight and would comd back again for comfort food.
First try the fish and chip. It was crunchy and not too salty. The fries were kind of average.
Good food, nice ambience, wonderful staff ! We sat and chatted for almost 3 hours. Time passes by so quickly when you have good company of friends too.
Cosy place with wicked wings. Make sure you eat the mains first beside starting the hot adventure. Go slow and take level 2. After that either head to killer level and then work your way down. Works for me! Fish & chips and the pizzas were good. Bacon & ham is recommended. Food serving was slow though. Had to wait a while for the pizzas. But otherwise friendly staff and ever helpful in making food suggestions and asking about our health after the killer level 11. Lol.
Employees are very friendly. Although the prices are steep, the large portion and tasty taste compensate for it. I ordered bolognese spaghetti and it was so huge that I cannot finish by myself. Moreover it was very delicious, not so sour. Just a right balance of sourness and sweetness. I also like their onion rings.
overall food is pretty nice especially the signature chicken. the astmophere is pretty unqiue and fun. price wise is abit mid class however affordable. service from the boss/waiter, was good and patience despite our long discussion. thumb up. location is quite accessible via public transport and there is limited free parking(adeqate)
The portion is huge. Onion ring taste great but don't let it turn cold as it will loss it taste. Mushrooms soup yummy but too big for one person. Good to share with friends. The pork rib is not great but my friends love the Lamb. Two of my friends have rib eye but ain't raving about it. Location is great for family dinner.
We ordered the cock and bull set, the chicken is crispy and juicy. Although we ordered well done for the rib eye as my dad only eat well done beef, it is not tough and still very tender. the rose beer is also very refreshing. we had a great meal here.
We always enjoy the casual dining and very friendly and personal service at Buckaroo. We are sorry it is closing and hope the management will be able to find an alternative location for this excellent restaurant. We love the food and the reasonable prices make return visits a must.
