Buffington’s new ownership brings the family together



Dave said the beer area is an easy place to “have the best of something.”

The Buff fields 54 bottle and 10 draft beers.

“I don’t know if it’s the largest selection, but it’s definitely the finest,” Mike Jr. said.

Happy Hour from 3 until 7 p.m. is a dollar off all beverages.

The restaurant features more than a burger and fries these days.

Steaks, salmon, fish and grits and a veggie burger are some diverse additions.

“If our customer wants it, we are going to find a way to get it to them,” Dave said. 

Buffington’s serves “man meals” for a menu shakeup.

“All of downtown seems to be baskets and fries. We wanted to step it up a little bit,” Mike Jr. said.

Visitors can look for a bar menu after the main kitchen closes as well. “Late night food,” like pork skins or finger food items, will be available until 1 a.m.

The new owners decided to open on Sundays, which looks like a smart decision so far.

“We didn’t anticipate the numbers we had immediately,” Mike Sr. said. “Word spread, and it’s done very well.”

The restaurant attracts locals and college students.

“It seems like it’s a place that everybody is welcome no matter who you are,” Mike Jr. said. 

The existing employees contribute to the open atmosphere at the eclectic spot.

Mike Sr. said the feel makes Buffington’s a popular place to work.

“When they are off duty, they hang out here,” he said.

A renewed focus on music and other entertainment events furnish patrons with another draw.

Acoustic Mondays from 7 to 10 p.m. yields “quiet, smooth music” for the working folks’ schedule.

Tuesday is karaoke, and Wednesdays offer popular trivia contests.

The Radio Birds and All The Locals are performing Saturday night starting at 11 p.m.
