Historic Site Tourist Spot
One of the most important archaeological sites of the Late-Prehistoric Plains Indians, the Vore Buffalo Jump was discovered during the construction of Highway I-90 in the early 1970's, the Vore site is a natural sinkhole that was used as a bison trap from about 1500 to 1800 A.D.

Buffalo were driven over the edge of the sink hole as a method for the Native American tribes to procure the large quantities of meat and hides needed to survive the harsh prairie winters.

Interpreters staff the Visitor's Center from June through September.

  • Wasn't expecting what we walked into. Relaxed but very nice restaurant. On a road trip with the family and needed something other than a burger so we thought we'd stop here. Really good choice! Waitress was excellent and very friendly. Food was great!
  • They have a great kitchen with interesting dishes for a steak saloon. And a sense of humor! What other cowboy steak house would have The Bachelorette on the big screen TV?!! The staff has gotten to know me and remembers what I like. I always go there when in the area.
  • Great place for a steak. Definitely a meat lovers flight, but other items are equally tasty. Have been here several times over many years, and have never had a bad or even mediocre meal. Super friendly staff.
  • Outstanding ribeye cooked to perfection and the pepper jack, bacon, mac and cheese is incredible. Great service and really neat place. A must if you are going through or from the area.
  • Nice historic site to visit. Easy access off the highway and usually not too many people at one time.
