Uncle Bud’s offers fantastic food, excellent service, and a fun eating experience. Great hometown spot!
Uncle Bud’s of Donelson
2719 Old Lebanon Rd.
Venue: “Home of the all-you-can-eat Fixin’s” that also offers an all-you-can-eat catfish any day of the week. This appears to be a popular local spot.
Atmosphere: Very welcoming and casual. Staff want you to have a good time.
Food Fare: Alligator tail, chicken nuggets and catfish are some of the items you can choose from. All dinners come with the All You Can Eat Fixin’s: coleslaw, white beans, hush puppies, fries, and pickles and onions.
Recommendations: Try the alligator tail–you can have it fried or grilled. Both are delicious but I like grilled better. Be prepared for a fun eating experience. Go early to avoid a wait.
Service: Exceptional! It was very good even on a crazy busy Father’s Day.
Return rating: Definitely. We’ve been twice and would love to return again. Worth a spot on your to do list for the Nashville area.
The Bucket offers “wet” or “dry” All You Can Eat Fish on a Friday night. This hometown Bar and Grill is definitely worth a stop!
Ma Bucket’s Place
104 Coldwater Street
Union City, Michigan
Venue: The exterior façade of “The Bucket” does not reflect the phenomenal food and service you encounter on the inside. Very casual Bar and Grill with hometown atmosphere.
Atmosphere: Homemade lumber tables, banquet chairs, Keno, bar, and dancing floor. Staff are welcoming.
Food Fare: Phenomenal food and service! Fish and pizza are fabulous. Fried mushrooms are nice and crispy (pictured below).
Recommendation: Be sure to try the All You Can Eat Fish (“A.U.C.E. Fish”) on a Friday night. They offer “wet” and “dry” fish. Wet is beer batter fish and dry is a thinner coating on the fried fish. We prefer the dry (pictured above), but both are tasty. With the meal you get your choice of two: french fries, coleslaw, or cottage cheese. The A.U.C.E. fish meal includes a homemade dessert too!
Service: Is very good, but can be a bit slow on a busy Friday night. Be prepared to relax and enjoy your evening as you fill up on fish.
Return Rating: Definitely—every chance we get!
