Unexpected treat

Made my way here after a day of seeing the local sights and was pleasantly surprised by the offerings. The atmosphere is fun and lively and the menu has a nice variety, how often do you come across fry bread tacos? They were quite satisfying and so was the walleye dinner entre.

Stopped in with family, waitress was timely to take drink order, food was delivered fairly quick, food was good, she came back only once to fill drinks, then disappeared, took tracking down another server to get our checks, then had to complain to get them back after we had given our cars to pay, wasn't a great experience

They have the best elk burgers around. The prices were reasonable. If you want to try elk this is the place to go.

Buglin' Bull accommodated our group of 25 with ease. Our waitress, Jen, took great care of us. Everyone enjoyed their meals. Food was so good, we went back for take-out the next day.

We were driving thru the Southern Hills looking for an open restaurant on Easter Sunday and found Buglin' Bull. They only had a buffet on this day so we had that and it was very good. Looking forward to returning for their regular menu. Friendly staff.

This restaurant was recommended by the owner of the Rocket Motel. (There is a 10% discount for people staying at the motel.)The building is truly beautiful inside.There are beautiful walls of original,exposed stone.The ceiling is a beautiful tin. Our bartender was attentive and friendly and knowledgable about the town and the beer offerings. We both had salads,which were very good.
