We were traveling out West in September and spending the night in Murdo. We drove around looking for restaurants and saw Buffalo on the outskirts of town. The service was excellent. The server was friendly and helpful as was a local customer, regarding things to...More

Opened the door to the restaurant, smelt cigarette smoke, turned around and left. I'm guessing it's more of a bar. I decided to find another place in town where I could have fresh air while I ate.

Friendly staff! Helpful staff! Good food (not super) and drinks, reasonable (not cheap) prices. However, the a/c perfume was overwhelming. Taste was distorted and both of us suffered from perfume overload.

We rolled in for a couple of drinks after a long cross-country road trip. It would have been nice to have exchanged a few pleasantries with the bartender but all he did was grunt. He is a master of the monosyllabic. The martinis were good...More

I wanted something a short walk from the Tesla Supercharger on a scorchingly hot day. This place was a treat. This is where the locals eat. It had a nice little salad bar and a big pot of in-house scratch cream of tomato soup. My...More
