Buffalo Tips

April 2024

Mr. Block and his companion will not really have completed their odyssey (“Hunting Buffalo,” April) until they have been to Buffalo Bend, Nebraska. My family and I had the opportunity to learn more about the town of Buffalo Bend than we cared to when we were stranded there during a sudden winter blizzard in 1987.

Buffalo Bend is a barely measurable widening of Highway 30, just west of Potter, with a population of fewer than ten souls, including a wonderful couple who manages the restaurant (featuring chicken-fried buffalo steak).

We hope you enjoy our work.
