    Honestly with all the great locally owned restaurants in San Francisco I can’t believe you wasted a show reviewing a chain restaurant. Disappointing and a waste of air time.

    This episode re-aired tonight, and my jaw dropped. While the dining experience is a bit unique, that shouldn’t be what this show is about. No more please.

  • PDA

    I don’t understand why people are against chain restaurants. If it’s good it’s good! Who cares if it’s a chain. And a restaurant is not only about the food but the atmosphere as well. I think Buca meets these requirements and the food is good too. All my family and friends like it and the place is always packed. Speaks for it’s self.

    The food is not much better than Olive Garden
