About us

On behalf of our family at the Brass Buckle, I would like to welcome you. The Brass Buckle, once known as the Conyngham Hotel has been located here at this location since circa 1805. To put things in prospective, who was the president of the United States in 1805? 

The Brass Buckle is located in a 205+ year old Rathskeller, not a basement. "Rathskeller" a word started in German-speaking countries, for a Bar or restaurant located below ground level. Many taverns and bars throughout the world use the name Rathskeller to this day. Remember the show Cheer’s, they too are in a Rathskeller. Prior to 1930s many immigrants, would rent this area of a building, to sell food to other immigrants of the same origins. This is how many Rathskeller, still operating today started in New York, Philly and Boston.

Our unique dining and food, is what makes the Brass Buckle so different. Our food, is not 100% authentic Mexican but is a type of tex mex and fusion or infused continental with south west and Mexican flavors. "carrots in the salsa" yes we do… this gives the salsa a sweet flavor with a nice crunch, with out having to add sugar. Just like many people secretly put carrots in marinara sauce. 

By the way did you know Nachos started in Texas and not Mexico? We pride our self in using only the freshest ingredients, as well as still keeping our eye on healthy whole foods. Many of our foods are also gluten free, since we do not use flour but rice flour and corn starch. So come down to the Brass Buckle for some great food, Drink and service. 

The Brass Buckle is located just south of Wilkes-Barre and north of Hazleton. Conveniently located off interstates 80 and 81 and routes 93 and 309.
