They've got beef and buffalo and turkey and chicken and veggie burgers. Buns are good sized and fresh. Add on stuff (cheeses, onions, lettuce, tomato, avocado, pineapple, mushrooms, & more) is always fresh and perfect. Down-home burger joint atmosphere. They also do steaks (extremely fresh and yummy), some fish, and terrific appetizers. They have a good variety of beer and... More

I have eaten there for 30 years. Younger generation of original owners has raised prices while reducing quality. Workers are grumpy and unfriendly. I can eat a much better burger at the Cliff House for two dollars more. Nicer staff, better ambience, and better salad. Skip this place..

You can never go wrong with a Buffalo Burger from Bulls Head. The restaurant offers steaks, fish, chicken, etc.. it is the Buffalo Meat Burgers which are delicious. You can either get 1/3 lb or 1/2 lb and there are any number of toppings to choose from. The Buffalo Steak is pretty good too, it is leaner than beef but... More
