Seems to be a place for the local folks to go as it was full when we went there. Good food, nice restaurant, easy to access location. If you find yourself in the tiny town of Murdo, SD you will find this a really good place to eat.

We have stopped in Murdo a couple times traveliing through town. More and more it is rare to find a privately owned eating establishment that makes something other than prepared or deep fried foods. Well Buffallo does. It is not a fancy place at all, but that is one of the nice qualities and you don't pay fancy prices either.... More

Murdo is a working mans bar and the restaurants are meat and potatos places. This place has a very nice salad bar and large portions. The staff is very friendly.

Traveling through town on our way west. The waitress went out of her way to give us great service! Shrimp special was delicious and the homemade soup was so good I went back for seconds.

After my wife and I checked into the Range Country Inn we drove a couple of blocks to the Buffalo Restaurant and Bar. On entering we were greeted by Linda who was behind the bar and three locals who introduced themselves and suggested we sit and join them in a drink,"We are all friends here" was the watchword of this...

My 89-year-old dad and I were on a 5,000 road trip last month. We drove across South Dakota and stayed a night in Murdo. As a small town, there weren't many options for restaurants; the clerk at our hotel recommended Buffalo Restaurant & Bar. There was only one waitress working and she was working hard. The place wasn't too busy,... More

My husband and I were in Murdo and, having had a bad experience last time we were there at Rusty Spur, decided to give this place a try (the good reviews definitely helped) - we were glad we did! We both had the special that night, whiskey marinated steak. Yum. They have a really great salad bar too, everything was... More

This restaurant has very good food. We had the Fried Chicken dinners with the salad bar. Salad bar was also very good. Since this is a small town the prices are a bit high. $16+ seemed high for a 4 piece chicken dinner. An ice cream dessert comes with the dinner.

Thank Joseph R
