    Sure, a lot of indigenous people where the bison roamed ate it.

    On most of the occasions I've eaten, I thought it a bit dry and easy to overcook.

    The Meers Store. Oh, yes. :)

    I ate there probably a dozen times when I was at Fort Sill.

    Spicy Sriracha Jalapeno Blue Cheese burger, bunless, with double bison patties. The bison patty is a $3 upcharge, and the extra bison patty is another $3 upcharge. That burger set me back $13 ... well $2.75 with a $10 gift card I had to burn.


    Really don't know I could tell a bison patty from a beef patty.

    Is a bunless burger still a burger?

    I have. There used to be a place out in New Cuyama Valley called the Buckhorn on the way from Bakersfield to Santa Maria California. At one time they served buffalo, and I thought it was pretty tasty. They have reopened recently and now server Ostrich burgers, I'm not in a big hurry to try one of those things though.

    Had one at Wall Drug in the 60s. It seemed like a dry hamburger to a young Buckocaster

    Try it. It is a red meat and doesn't taste like chicken. Actually bears a strong resemblance to beef, in a burger.

    Fuddruckers and BJs offer Buffalo burgers. Every once in a while Arby’s will have bison.
    Taste is pretty neutral.

    That depends. When they're on the grill, do you say you're cooking burgers or meat cylinders?

    Well, next time I'm through there I'll have to give it a try. I've eaten escargot, but those damned things taste an awful lot like snails.

    Not if you chop it up and put it in a taco shell, then it is a taco...

    Ain't nothing skinny or legendary about me. I do like a well-prepared slab o' meat and don't consider having a sense of adventure that goes beyond chicken, beef, pork and fish a liability.

    If it's good, I'll eat it. If it wasn't cooked properly because some yutz thought it should cooked like cow because the animal was roughly cow-shaped, it isn't good.

    Buffalo is about the leanest meat we consume...absolutely love it but extremely expensive here compared to cattle.

    Buffalo is the perfect animal...tastes great, and it’s hide is as tough as shark. I’ve got a buffalo hide guitar strap (purchased by wife from Pine Ridge Reservation) that I’m fairly certain will outlast our galaxy

    Years ago when I was in high school, a friend of mine took some LSD before reporting for work at a fast food burger joint, he was literally flipping out while flipping burgers... He had an "experience", no keto involved. I went in to get some lunch during this escapade and saw him acting a fool in the kitchen, it wasn't pretty, his manager was freaked out at the ordeal.

    We have a grille not too far from here that I have eaten their bison burger many times.
    Several years ago I was looking at their menu on the wall and saw Bison Prime Rib.
    Now I love a good Prime Rib cooked rare. So I caught the waiter and ask if they had it available right then. He said they didn’t have the prime rib, but I could order a rib steak.
    I ordered a Bison Rib Eye rare. Wow! It was delicious, no it wasn’t dry, or tough or too gamely, just tender juicy Rib Eye.
    Now the restaurant did have their own ranch where the raised their own, but I doubt it that much different.
    I think that many people don’t know how to cook meat and could ruin a beef steak too.
    I think a beef rib eye that’s well done is ruined, too dry, too tough everything they say about a Bison.
    One drawback, there are higher than a giraffes ass. About 6 years ago they were $39.00, but I wasn’t gonna pass it up.
    If you like Rib Eye, and you have the money, try it, it’s worth it.

    I ate ostrich once in Portland. I remember liking it, but that's all I remember.

    You know if you were just looking at one of those Ostrich fellas, the last thing that would come to mind would eating it, but I guess the same could be said of escargot they don't really look like something you'd just grab up and put in your mouth!
