The buffalo-style burger is grilled and basted with a house sauce, Monterey Jack cheese and a house mayonnaise. And is shown here with French Onion steak fries, which Jeff tells us has not been a regular offering, but after this photo shoot, will probably become one.

Jeff Constance, chef restaurateur, left the J. Buck’s crew in October 2008 when they changed ownership with the plan to open restaurants that were more chef-driven as a concept. Constance worked with Bravo TV's Top Chef lead judge Tom Colicchio of Craft restaurants, and with Charlie Palmer at Aureole in New York.

Chef restaurateur, Jeff Constance, opened Hanley’s Grill & Tap in the West County Center November 11, 2009 in the former J. Buck’s location, where he had also previously worked.
This location is the second Hanley’s Grill & Tap. Jeff Constance opened the first one just a few months prior in Fairview Heights, Illinois at St. Clair Square shopping mall.
Chef restaurateur Jeff Constance says he strives to make his restaurant accessible to all diners, as both a destination spot and to casual diners just looking to spend an afternoon at the mall.
Both spaces (in West County and Fairview Heights) were previously J. Buck’s, where Constance had been executive chef for about eight years.
