They did an outstanding job catering for a large group. While many of the stations served your typical Tex-Mex there were some very good carving stations. The atmosphere was unique and encouraged wandering through the museum.

They have good food, reasonable prices, but limited hours for food. It was mostly burgers/sandwiches.

Because of the historical value of the Buckhorn we stopped in for lunch and a visit to the museum. I wish we'd just had a drink at the awesome bar and skipped lunch. It was not much better than any food you get at a...More
