If you are looking for a "hole in the wall" type of place, this is where its at! I have been here a few times in the past month simply because I crave their Kielbasa and Cheese Omelette! I have yet to be able to eat more than half of it in one sitting because it is so big and... More

If you want a lot of food, and a local place this is for you. Food is a but greasy for our taste, but tasted good. Lots of choices n breakfast menu. It's not cheap, moderate prices I would say. Probably not go back.

This is a mom and pop small restaurant that attracts the locals. Homemade food that people stand in line waiting for. The main menu is on a whiteboard on the back wall and at the door. If your looking for a fancy place this is not it, it's an everyday diner where you can see the cook making the food.

Love the buckboard! Food is greasy and cheap. It's outdated and old, but the food is affordable, you get a lot of it and the locals have been coming there for years!

This is my "go to" place when I want a big breakfast. The portions are huge. They have unique items on the menu. I have just about worked my way through their large breakfast menu. One of my favorites is the gyro omelet.

This place can't be beat for breakfast. A great menu, good price and good food. Lunch and dinner looks good too but I haven't tried them yet.

I have been eating at the Buckboard for many years. They have a hardy Midwestern menu. I generally go for breakfast after church and a lot of time there is a line. Lunch and dinner are great but it is hardy so you may want a nap after. It is really all the locals from Lakeville eat at this diner.... More
