After playing around outside feeding the buffalo, it was time we headed inside and got something to eat! We could hardly tear him away from that neat activity. He loved it!

The menu is short and simple. I have had buffalo a few times in my life. So, when I found out the special at Buffalo Run Farm, Grill, and Gifts was an Elk Burger, which is something I’ve never had before (I don’t think I even knew it was an option), well, what did I have to lose?

My husband, Jeremy, ordered the Buffalo Burger from Buffalo Run Farm, Grill, and Gifts creative menu. Kid #1 requested the smaller sized buffalo burger and  thought he was pretty big stuff getting the same thing as dad.

We enjoyed the homey atmosphere and explored the gift shop while waiting for our food.

He loved browsing around at all the unusual stuff inside. I mean, we’re talking some pretty neat and also some downright bizarre things for sale! It was fun–and a great way to pass the little bit of time before our food was ready.

Let’s see…we saw buffalo teeth, a buffalo leg lamp (a la A Christmas Story), and also had to buy a jar of Caramel Pecan Apple Butter. Yes, it was good and yes, it was eaten rather quickly in our house!

Back to the cool stuff for sale in this Lincoln City mom and pop–Kid #1 got a tomahawk to bring home and Kid #2 got a cute little Buffalo stuffed animal. So adorable! It’s just the perfect size for him and will probably be one of his “best friends” in the years to come.

As to our food–it was great! Of course, my experience with Elk Burgers are pretty limited but I would get it again. My husband and Kid #1 loved their Buffalo Burgers. Win/Win.
