Billy's Grill "Exotiic" Burgers

Has anyone tried their exotic bugers, i.e. buffalo, venison or ostrich? Any of them worth trying?
I stick with the basic hamburger. Too good to change. I have been tempted but the price difference and the fact that the burger is fantastic keep me with the beef burger bargin.
However, on two occasions I have talked with other patrons. One had the Lamb and the other the Ostrich. Both really liked them and came back specifically for them.
The fries are amazing too.
I actually *just* came back from Billy's and was going to post about it, but you've already started the thread so... I'll just stay here. :)
Was car shopping on Van Nuys Blvd. (is there something like Chowhound for cars? my.... that would be a LIFESAVER!) and got hungry, so I went to Billy's and ordered the buffalo burger, well-done.
The meat was excellent (like beef, only a bit softer and a richer taste), and was topped with a bit of relish, mustard, ketchup and hot sauce (!! YES:)). The lettuce and tomato were cool and crisp on the burger. The bun wasn't the best I've ever had, but it worked well with the rest of the ingredients. If you're used to the standard beef burger, give the buffalo a shot; it's great.
Unfortunately, I didn't get to try the fries. I'll be letting you guys know how those are the next time I go out.
