Small portions with nothing special about it. Very expensive, a basic bison burger with some potatoes is going to cost you around $11-13.

I always enjoy a stop at this place-it constantly delivers a quality burger, which looks and tastes like one, as opposed to the fru-fru concoctions created by those competing to outdo each other at all the newbie places in town.

We love hole in the wall restaurants. Tatanka take out was an accidental stop on our vacation after visiting the tacoma zoo. They serve vegetarian and bison entrees. A wonderful surprise to our vacation.

Tired of beef, pork and especially chicken? Try their buffalo burger for a return to full flavor. Or a take out that'll surprise the home team.
