David Buck and his daughter, Heather Indest, purchased the old Domingue’s Motors building, a structure that had remained abandoned for decades, with the vision of restoring it as a multi-use restaurant, shopping, and event space.
Partnering with their good friends, Johnny & Coatney Raymond, they created Buck & Johnny’s. With a unique Cajun twist on Italian standards and their own award-winning Cajun dishes, Buck & Johnny’s serves up authentic Cajun-Italian fusion using locally-sourced ingredients.
The ambiance of the old Domingue’s Motors has been maintained in the décor, featuring old tin signage and oil can light fixtures. The former parts window now serves as our server window, bridging the gap between our fantastic chef and you. The restaurant features a two-sided balcony, overhanging both the dining side and our renowned Filling Station bar.
Top notch bourbons and wines, warm and caring staff, and live music nightly make it the perfect spot for a family outing, special occasion, or a romantic dinner for two.
