This is a perfect example of a fast food place, literally it’s a hole in the wall type of joint. During the day it usually isn’t that crowded unless you drop by for a slice of pizza during the local primary school lunch break. Nighttime at Bucko (fatty or chubby in Serbian) is a totally different story. A traffic jam is a regular occurrence when the sun sets, people stand in a long line, cars are parked everywhere and public buses have a hard time going through this part of the street.
Why is this pizza so special you might ask?! Well it’s not special at all, to be honest it’s about average at most. It’s all about the toppings or salads however you want to call them. If you come here and order just a slice of pizza everybody will stare at you like you’re a crazy person, including the people working there. For one person I would recommend 2 slices with “Govedja salata” AKA the beef salad. They will slap it on your slice of pizza and it will become your little triangle of heaven and off you go into the Belgrade night life.
If you haven’t prepared for a night of drinking in advance I would recommend doing it later on since this is the perfect drunk food. I live just around the corner so it’s a perfect last stop to sober up before going to bed, or just to carry on partying. Other options are chicken, Russian and sesame salad.
