Best Bison Burger in Wyoming (2017)


The bison has long been an important food source for the people of the American plains. It's also the state mammal of Wyoming. With this in mind, it should come as no surprise that the state is famous for its steakhouses, but not just because of the beef served. Hungry travelers will often find game meats, like elk and bison on menus across the state, often in burger form.
