Buckhorn Exchange - Denver
Denver's first-ever steakhouse is still going strong and has been serving prime steaks and more since 1893. Buckhorn Exchange is only about five minutes from downtown Denver--in the city's oldest neighborhood of Curtis Park. In addition to being honored as a National Historic Landmark, the steakhouse is home to the Western Museum.
In addition to prime grade beef steaks, diners will find wild game like buffalo prime rib, ostrich, yak, elk, quail and alligator tail on the menu. But they're highly encouraged to order the house specialty, Rocky Mountain Oysters--a dish made of bull, pig or sheep testicles.
Not feeling adventurous? There's the Buckhorn’s famous bean soup, Grandma Fanny’s pot roast sandwich, and bratwurst or rib platters.
Steaks are carved tableside and served with a sizzling crock of sautéed mushrooms and onions. Soup or salad and a side dish arrive with each order. The Buckhorn Exchange offers large-portion steaks that are intended for two to five guests.
