Missed breakfast in Odessa so we decided to eat lunch in Sweetwater. This place popped up on Trip Advisor so we chanced it. Super, super busy but seated within 5 minutes. Good food with good service, not polished but friendly. Good for all types of company; family, couples, kids, etc.

The steak was definitely delicious but the ambiance was definitely lacking. I felt it was a little pricey for the atmosphere. Our friends for the BBQ side of things, which is on a buffet. I sampled their brisket and ribs and thought they were a little dry. The staff was very friendly and the restaurant appeared clean but the decor... More

Service was good, orders came out quickly, but our table was comingled with another table. All plates were stacked on top of the lower plate so the wait staff could deliver more plates at one time. The waitress stated that they didn't use serving trays. Observed all staff doing the same. Only hope the bottoms were washed.

The plates are full of food, way more then I could eat. My wife choose the all you can eat Bar-B-Q, and couldn't finish her first plate. I had the chicken fried chicken with baked potato, the potato appeared to be held to long before serving. Everything else was great.

This was our first visit, and we found it a bit frenetic but interesting and with good food. My husband ordered an 8 oz. sirloin, and it was cooked just as he likes it. His sides (you can choose two) were French fries and a green salad. I ordered mesquite grilled quail (2 in an order), and they were delicious.... More

We had dinner here. The parking lot was crowded. The food was good. The small chicken fried steak covered the dinner plate. Salad was good. The enchiladas soup was tasty but too thick, the consistency of oatmeal. We ate late so that may have been part of the cause. Overall a decent place to stop when traveling. It's right on... More

Bucks Steaks & BBQ is a good comfort food restaurant. We have dined there a number of times over the years and it has always been consistent in its quality and friendly service. It's a great place to stop while on the road. Great variety of meal choices.

We landed in Sweetwater overnight and had no idea where to eat. While driving around we saw this place and decided to give it a try and very glad we did. It was the dinner hour and it was a little crowded but they were able to seat us immediately. Good freshly made food - everything. Nothing out of the... More
