This family-owned restaurant made its initial appearance about four years ago. Prior to its opening, with a cash basket and an honor system, Dianne Burden began selling homemade salsa out of a refrigerator on the front porch of her family home. Inspiration for a roadside BBQ restaurant came after years of salsa making and burrito-rolling, as the Burdens took personal orders from friends and family via text message. Eventually, and thanks to word-of-mouth, the orders piled up and Duaine Burden vowed to build a restaurant for his wife to work out of. Mr. Jalapeno Buck did just that, and over the last few years, the family has been smoking brisket, rolling burritos, and serving quesadillas. Jalapeño Bucks was born out of hard work and the love for BBQ!
