Review: Bucky’s Cafe of Cambridge ID

Bucky’s Cafe & Motel
10 North Superior Street
Cambridge, ID 83610

The only restaurant we found for miles and miles in this western frontier section of Idaho was Bucky’s Café. We rolled into Cambridge pretty much running out of steam, and there it was on the right.

The place was about half full with a lunch crowd of cowboy-hat wearing locals. The atmosphere was neighborly and chatty. The waitress was doing well considering they were short staffed. She brought my hot coffee and kept the refills coming. David ordered the soup and sandwich special of the day. For some strange reason, I decided to try the fish and chips. I was chilled to the bone and I guess I thought that would help warm me up.

From our table, we could see the cook cranking out the orders. We knew we had a while to wait, so I went outside and took some pictures of the town. Shortly after returning, our food was delivered.

David reported that his soup was excellent and his sandwich was decent. My fish was very bready and somewhat spongy – typical frozen fare. The fries were very good and plentiful. The food and cultural experience came to around $15.

    This facility is now under new Management. There is 3 motel rooms and a 5 bedroom house to rent for a night or up to a month at a time, great for fishermen and hunters. The cafe’s menu has changed some but their famous Bucky Burger is still on the menu. Please stop in and visit and enjoy a good meal.
