America’s Best Restaurants Roadshow filming at Buford's Pub on Friday

SADORUS - Lights, camera, action! America's Best Restaurants Roadshow will be at Buford's Pub filming for an upcoming episode this Friday. The show, produced for the America's Best Restaurant's YouTube channel, will be aired at a future date.

America’s Best Restaurants is a national media and marketing company focusing on local, independently-owned restaurants. The show will highlight the popular local two-unit business south of Champaign owned by Jeff Buckler.

"Most of my food comes from my travels on a motorcycle," Buckler said, often taking pictures of menus on his trips so he can return home and use the ideas as a springboard for new items.

The episode will feature a extensive interview with Buckler and highlight his signature dishes. Restaurants featured on the ABR Roadshow are found through customer nominations or by a restaurant applying through their website for consideration for an upcoming episode.

Buford's is known locally for its inventive American-style menu items where bigger appears to be better, according a press release announcing plans for the upcoming show.

In addition to his burgers and fries, Buford's is the home of Champaign County's "Elephant Ear Tenderloin" and the "Trash Can Nachos", basically three pounds of food served in a 12 x 8 pan. The two local establishments are also known for their garlic parmesan tater tots, various smashburgers named after friends, and homemade dipping sauces such as wasabi ranch or jalapeno ranch.

Located at 109 E Market St, Buford’s Pub seats 70 indoors and an additional 70 on their outdoor patio. ABR will announce the premiere date on their Facebook page and at
