Restaurant: The Bucket
Location: 4541 Eagle Rock Blvd. (Eagle Rock)
Type of restaurant: Hamburgers
Another place we have driven past for years, The Bucket had gone dark a few years ago, and it looked like we had lost our chance to try it out. It was revived, yet we didn't visit... until New Food Sunday.
They stipulated: "With new owners and a new outlook it has gotten a second lease on life. The idea of providing locals a place to enjoy good food and good drinks at a reasonable price is re-energized and ready to become a place for the community to call a home away from home."
What we ordered: Bucket Burger (Cheese, lettuce, tomato, pickles, onion, thousand island; $6.65); York Burger (Cheese, lettuce, tomatoes, pickles, grilled onions, grilled mushrooms and Thousand Island; $6.90); Chicken Street Taco (Corn tortilla, cilantro, onions and choice of spicy or mild salsa; $2.25 each); Make your own fritas ($7.25)
High point: I was pleasantly surprised by the tacos. For a burger joint, the street tacos are solid.
Low point: There was no line, but we had to wait a surprisingly long time just to pick up our pre-ordered, pre-paid food.
Will we return: I think for Taco Tuesday, when the tacos are just $1!
