Restaurants that serve Buffalo - PHX/Tempe/Scotts

Shale4620 Aug 23, 2007 12:27 PM

Love this website! Glad I found it yesterday and joined today!!

Alright, need some help locating restaurants that serve buffalo meat here in town. I know fuddruckers serves buffalo burgers (I'm gluten free so I get my burger sans bun) but that's about the only place I know of.

So a place (aside from the place at the scottsdale waterfront - the reviews off this site dont make it sound too great) for burgers and steaks!

          Yes, their buffalo carpaccio is very delicious! The appetizer would make a fine meal for one!

        Not too far from Phoenix/Scottsdale/Tempe is Kai at the Sheraton Wild Horse Pass Resort in Chandler. They serve a buffalo tenderloin that is OUTSTANDING. =)

          You can add Stax on the list- one can order buffalo burgers there. Beware that a 3 oz. burger can cost you up to $5 for what is basically a slider portion. Plan on eating elsewhere first before dining here, unless you're ready to shell out a lot of money for three or four burgers plus sides.

            Fuddruckers serves buffalo? Since when? Do all their restaurants offer it?

              Their website lists buffalo, turkey, and veggie burgers as alternatives to their beef burgers without mention of differences across stores or regions.

              Cabela's, the sporting goods store next to Cardinal Stadium in Glendale, has a cafeteria upstairs that features buffalo burgers.

                Also, the Bass Pro Shops restaurant, Islamorada, serves buffalo burgers. It's close to 101 and 202 in Mesa.

                The Firebirds Rocky Mountain grill at the Chandler mall has very good Buffalo meatloaf. Comes with a mushroom sauce and is probably the best meatloaf I've had.

                  I agree that Firebirds' buffalo meatloaf is pretty good. I took my Mom and her husband there a few times... on his two visits, he ordered the meatloaf.

                  Anyone tried the buffalo burger at Stax or Fuddruckers? I haven't and would love to hear some input.

                  Thank you!

                    I always get the buffalo burger (inferno style) at fuddruckers without the bun. Its a little on the dry side due to the fat content in the meat being less than beef. Still..not bad. And in my opinion, its better than a turkey burger.

                    I've had the buffalo meatloaf at Firebirds, and it is good. But it's actually buffalo mixed with regular ground beef, according to the restaurant manager.

                    I've also tried the buffalo burger at Stax. Unless you customize, it comes with barbecue sauce, an onion ring and pickled shallots. It's my favorite of all Stax's burgers.
