Had the bacon-wrapped jalapeños stuffed with cream cheese -- YUM! Good selection of wines and beer. Hidden gem but glad it's next to the Westcliff. Always a stop for us when in town.

Dinner for two with one drink each was $46.50 + tip. It's not gourmet, but it hit the spot after a long day.

Several of us staying at Westcliff went next door to White Buffalo for dinner. We had some excellent salads and the sandwich special. The bread was really divine. They bake their own there. The food quality was a cut above.

Thank you for your kind review. We appreciate your stopping in with your group. Since so many people take the opportunity to walk over from nearby lodging, it's hard to say what's going on at the Buffalo from day to day. Thanks again!
