“Delicious buffalo burger”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2014

They have a nice menu with a lot of choices. Our buffalo burgers were great and so was the service and ambiance. Adults may find the covered wagon dining room a bit cheesy, but kids would just love it. There is lots of interesting stuff on the walls in the front dining room. The owner is there working away and is very nice. We wished we could have tried some ice cream, but our buffalo burgers filled us up. We were tired and gritty from the road and this was a perfect stop for us. We'd come back again.

“Staff friendly, but food was "meh"”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2014

We went to this place on a recommendation of a shop owner after asking about good barbecue. The backroom ambiance (covered wagons) is borderline cheesy, but hey, it was with done with the best of intentions.

I ordered the baby back ribs and my wife ordered a pulled pork sandwich. She likes her barbecue swimming in sauce and was pleased with the sandwich in that respect. The barbecue sauce itself was pretty much in the average range. My ribs were cooked such that they were tender, but the meat lacked flavor and they were a bit dry. Clearly they were not smoked. The barbecue sauce was applied at the end and again, the taste was in the average range.

The staff was the redeeming quality. The waiter we had was helpful, courteous, and attentive. I felt a little bit lying to him when he asked how everything was and my wife and I stated that we were quite satisfied. Anyone with a heart lies in those situations, but still, I felt bad because he really seemed interested in us having a good meal.

“One Of A Kind Culinary Overindulgence. ”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2014

This place is unique. Western kitsch and super hefty portions of Meaty Awesomeness. You better be hungry and willing to over indulge. My wife ordered BBQ chicken breast thinking that would be on the light side. It came with two breasts and 3 sides. Way too much food. My steak was wonderful. Perfect, actually. I'm all about good value, but the portions are ridiculously huge. The foreign tourists can tell the folks back home why Americans are so obese. One scoop of ice cream = about 1/2 pint. Everything comes with choice of 3 sides including tater tots and cheese fries. No baked or mashed potatoes. I'd suggest splitting an entree with someone.

“Amazing!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2014

While in W. Yellowstone we ate at several of the local restaurants. My husband has tried the buffalo steaks at a couple of them and says that the one he had at Buckaroo Bill's is by far the best! The covered wagon setting in the back was alot of fun for the whole family. We really enjoyed our meal here. The server was so friendly and nice we talked for quite awhile before leaving. We would recommend this place to anyone looking for a great meal and a good time.
