    Great for large groups and parties. Service was great and food was decent enough for the occasion. However, the restaurant was DIRTY!! The floors and hand rails were horrible and the bathroom needs a deep clean. Place needs a good cleaning and a refresh.

    The front host staff was very nice. The manager Tim really works hard and is very knowledgeable about the business. Tim also went above and beyond to give us great services. The server was great in the start but after we were served our entrees she disappeared for 30+ minutes. We even had to get our own take out containers. The restaurant had a very musty odor. It definitely needs an update

    Was seated at a dirty table. A lil bit of marinera sauce was spilled on the table which I didn't noticed until it smeared on my long sleeve shirt. Other than that food and service was at expected quality(4 stars).

    Waiter was helpful and friendly. Quiet night there, but food was delicious and plentiful, as advertised. No complaints whatsoever. Go, enjoy, and most likely you will take leftovers home for the next day.

    Always a great time at Buca! The atmosphere is terrific and the food is delicious and plentiful. Huge portions served family style and the menu is varied with something for everyone. We’ve been going for years and always look forward to our times there. GREAT for celebrations and big gatherings. Rather noisy but it’s a fun place so why not!
