Perfect addition to a great trip exploring the North Cascades. Couldn't decide between the homemade buffalo chili or buffalo barley...so got both! Highly recommend the chili because it comes with a huge and delicious serving of cornbread!

On the Cascade Loop Highway we found the Buffalo Run Restaurant. Their unique lunch menu included bison burgers and water buffalo burgers. I had the latter. It was very lean and very good. During summer months they employ foreign students to wait tables, adding to...More
