Gift Cards

How do I purchase gift cards?

You can purchase gift cards in person at any of our restaurants or electronic gift cards online through our website.

What gift cards can I use at your restaurants?

We only accept Buckhorn BBQ + Grill gift cards and e-gift cards. Our gift cards are not valid at Buckhorn Steakhouse or Buckhorn food trucks.

Can I order a gift card online and pick it up at my local restaurant?

No. When you order online, your e-gift card will be emailed directly to the email address you provide.

I purchased e-gift cards during the “buy $50, get $10” holiday promotion. Where is my store credit?

The email you received confirming your e-gift card purchase stated “The $10 bonus was added to your loyalty account as store credit.” Therefore, if you are logged in and click where your initials are, you’ll see the $10 as store credit under the “Buckhorn BBQ + Grill Card” section, not in the rewards section. When placing an order through our website or app, you’ll see the credit appear when checking out under the “Buckhorn Credit” section.

Loyalty Account

How do I change my loyalty account phone number?

While you can’t change your registered phone number, we can help you transfer your points and rewards to your new phone number and disable your old loyalty account. Please sign up for a new Buckhorn loyalty account with your new phone number. Once you do, contact and we will help you with the transfer process.

How do I earn points for my visit?

What purchases can I earn points on?

You can earn points on all food and beverage purchases, including catering orders and alcohol. For gift cards, you would receive points when the gift card is used on food and beverage purchases, not for the purchase of the gift cards themselves.

How do I redeem a reward during my visit?

Following the same process described above, your cashier will be able to see any eligible rewards you have in your account and will ask you if you would like to redeem one during your visit.

Can I redeem a reward on an online order through the app?

Yes! You can go to your rewards in the app, select the one you would like to redeem and choose “order now.” From there, that item will be discounted in your cart.

Why didn’t I receive my birthday reward?

There would be two main reasons why you wouldn’t have received your birthday reward: you did not include your birthday as part of your account information or you joined our loyalty program after your birthday. You would receive your reward on your birthday for use within one month on/after the date.

Will I earn points for any online order placed through the app?

Yes, you certainly will as long as you are logged into your account.

Can I earn points for purchases made through third-party websites, such as DoorDash Marketplace, Uber Eats, etc.?

No, only purchases made directly at any of our restaurants and through our website and app are eligible for points.

Can I still get my points for my purchase even after I’ve left the restaurant?

You sure can. Send a picture of your receipt to and we will add the points onto your account. Only purchases made after you joined our loyalty program will count.
