We live in an age when a restaurant that's been open for thirty years is legendary. Sink your teeth into this: The Buckhorn Exchange has been around more than 120 years. And although the ownership has changed over the years, the upstairs bar remains a veritable museum of beer steins and shotguns, the downstairs dining rooms a taxidermy zoo of delicious mammals distantly related to what will soon arrive on your plate. Although you can order everything from buffalo to yak to rattlesnake here, the Big Steak — big, indeed, bloody rare and served with all the trimmings — is the dish to get.
