Buckstop is a classic BBQ and small plates saloon on Denman Street. I bought a Social Shopper deal for their classic American barbecue feast for two people, including fried dill pickles, pulled pork sandwich, smoked chicken leg, St. Louis pork ribs,navy beans, Kennebec fries, hush puppies, cornbread and honey butter. Pretty good deal for only $28.
M and I came on the weekend to finally use it before it expires.
I love the dim atmosphere and the decor inside.
M ordered a coke, which came in a cute mason jar. You can’t have BBQ without coke.
Deep Fried Dill Pickles with a cajun aioli sauce. The staff warned us that its scalding hot, so we should wait a few minutes before digging in. I loved the thin crunchy exterior and the sour pickle that lies inside. So far the best deep fried dill pickles I’ve had so far.
Hush Puppies and Corn Bread is served with a honey butter. M hasn’t had hush puppies in a very long time since he lived in the states, so his eyes lit up when devouring these.
I’ve never had hush puppies before, so I thought they were a tad dry, but I have no idea if its supposed to be like that.
The pulled pork sandwich is served on a Portuguese bun lots of pulled pork and coleslaw inside. The pork was tender and the coleslaw balanced it out.
The smoked chicken leg and St. Louis pork ribs were piled on top of each other. Both of then were very tender and was falling off the bone. We slathered their BBQ sauce on it and devoured it super quickly.
The thin Kennebec fries were ok, but I wish they were more crispy.
The navy beans and coleslaw completed the rest of the platter. I didn’t care much for the navy beans but I ate all the coleslaw.
It was a good meal for M and I. It was pretty good deal with the SocialShopper deal and I would come back on a regular night. The atmosphere is great especially grabbing a few cocktails or beer to go with your meal.
