Dinner and a ball game!
JBuck’s business is booming at the new downtown location! And what a better spot to open a place… only 400 yards away from the ballpark! What took so long?? The downtown location has many great features. The roof top dining area is great place to have a private party and can be rented for any occasion. The main dining room has many of the buildings original features such as original pocket doors and original flooring.
Here is a little fact about the restaurant named JBucks. Ted Geiger the owner of the restaurant approached Jack Buck many years ago with the idea of opening a Jack Buck “themed” restaurant. Mr. Buck at the time was not too keen on the idea, stating he felt he would have to be there all the time. Well Mr. Geiger did not take no for an answer. He went to Jack’s daughter Julie and asked her knowing a father could never say no to his daughter! Well Jack finally came around and said “yes” as long as it would be named “JBuck’s” J standing for Jack, Joe and Julie.
Now the restaurant is as well known as the name it represents one of the world’s best broadcasters! Kudos to The DSLP and Mr. Geiger for bringing yet another fine eating establishment to the ever growing downtown area!
