, California, restaurant
. Home of the Buck Owens Museum
, with memorabilia
spanning Buck's 40 year career
in country music
. Not only are there photos
, Nudie suit
s, and record
s, but above the bar is a Cadillac convertible
said to have been won from Elvis Presley
in a poker
game. And guess who leads the house band every Friday and Saturday night
? Yep, that's Buck himself. So head on over to 2800 Buck Owens Avenue off of Highway 99 in Bakersfield and order up some Cryin' Time Onjun Rangs
. The menu says they come with southern dippin' sauce, but it looks and tastes just like orange marmalade
to me. Why serve marmalade with the Onjun Rangs? 'Cause that's the way Buck likes 'em.
And stop by the Country Store in the lobby to take home a little bit of Buck home with you: Buck Owens keychains, mugs, sweatshirts, denim jackets, or even a red, white, and blue autographed Fender Telecaster ($1600).
