Cuisine: American, Burger, Steakhouse
The owners have been friends since the 8th grade - and these boys know how to cook up a nice steak. The atmosphere at Buckley's is dark and maybe a bit dated - but no one cares when the food arrives, as it is fresh and perfectly made to order. The menu includes steaks and chops as well as steak burgers; all entrees come with a salad, and sides include cheese grits as well as the usual mashed or baked potatoes. You can add a skewer of shrimp or your choice of sauces to any steak for a modest price.

Steakhouses: "The restaurant isn't open for lunch - but you can grab a Buckley's burger around the corner on Yates, where the Buckley's Lunch Box is located."
Best for Steakhouses Because: Buckley's puts a casual twist on steakhouse dining, and the prices are less fearsome than most.
