Bite into a Bison Burger

If you’ve never tried one, you’ll love the juicy, hearty flavor packed into these delicious burgers. Besides, what better place to grab a bison burger than in the ‘Buffalo City’?

A couple of Jamestown restaurants serve this tasty burger. You can try one at the Sabir’s Buffalo Grill, located downtown (directions here), or at the Frontier Fort Bar & Grill, nearby the World’s Largest Buffalo Monument.

Try some Knoephla soup

Warm-up on a chilly winter night with a bowl of Knoephla Soup, the unofficial comfort food of the prairie. The name is related to the modern German “Knöpfle,” meaning little button. Traditional Knoephla is a rich and creamy chicken and potato soup, where the “little buttons” are chewy little dumplings.

Connect with the bygone days of sitting around grandma’s farm table, enjoying this rich soup while the snow falls and stories abound. To take a bite of Knoephla is to taste the contentment of a prairie home.

You can find Knoephla soup served on Thursdays at The Depot Cafe (directions here) in downtown Jamestown .
