Now Open Southern Wicker Park

Opening December 9th at 1700 W. Division St., Buck’s brings a taste of down South, up North to Chicago in a relaxed and comfortable environment. A neighborhood hangout offering reinvented Southern cocktails and dishes, Buck’s provides Wicker Park a new take on a social space complemented by modern touches.

Buck’s builds on the successful roots of its managing partners’ previous endeavor, the Michelin award-winning restaurant Carriage House, and infuses it with inspiration from the Atlanta upbringing of partner and Chicago entrepreneur, Stephen Lee. The resulting bar and restaurant offers a funky spin on the South that will make guests feel at home.

"Buck’s will provide a unique, fun experience in an upbeat atmosphere with boozy punch bowls, buckets of chicken, and biscuit sandwiches that appeals to both drinkers and diners.” - Stephen Lee, partner of Buck’s

The new concept offers a menu featuring buckets of chicken and biscuit sandwiches, such as the chicken fried steak (hot sauce, horseradish ranch, sweet pickles) from Michelin award-winning Executive Chef Mike Galen, who was inspired by his culinary travels to the Southeast. With most items priced under $10, the casual menu will also feature classic fried chicken, presented in branded buckets, and treats such as chocolate s’mores biscuits (salted caramel, toasted marshmallow).

Enjoy shareable boozy punch bowls, such as the Ruby Smoke (Cutty Sark Whisky, lemon, port, angostura) and cocktails such as the Oldie But Goodie (Bonded Whiskey, Demerara, bitters). A draft beer program offers regional favorites, including pitchers and pints from Half Acre and Off Color.
