Vore Buffalo Jump, Beulah

4.2
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.

  • This is definitely a hidden gem. You walk in and you know youโ€™re somewhere special. Our waitress was very kind and helpful. We devoured the Buffalo Potatoes. Perfect balance with crispy fries and cheese and brisket,etc. My husband got the chicken fried steak, mashed potatoes, and green beans. I kept stealing his green beans-garlicky and delicious. When you come here, you better come ready to eat. Huge portions! We had the lemon drop cheesecake for dessert. It had a crumb topping and was so creamy. If youโ€™re close to Beulah (or not), you must stop by here!
  • The salmon and service were excellent. The salad wasn't very green. Others at our table said their meals were great too...halibut, scallops & steak. I highly recommend.
  • Will go back any day of the week. Excellent food. A bit pricey but hey ya get what ya pay for. I personally recommend springing for the dry aged steak. Its so perfect you can practically cut it with a wooden spoon and needs no steak sauce or any kind of condiment for that matter. Go now, if you are reading this and are not eating already.
  • Omg this place is off the chain! I love the country vibe. Super clean. Food is AMAZING! Kids meal is fantastic. Prices are great for what you get. My Buffalo burger was great. My husbands ribs ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ Ive NEVER seen him eat a full rack. I would say this is WY little corner secret. Bravo Buffalo Jump. From the Alaskan's.
  • What a wonderful dinner in a great location. Service is friendly. Quality of the steaks were outstanding. You pay a little more, but the quality was well worth it.
