"The Bison. One of the finest meats that is severely under represented here in Austin. So, where do we go from here? We go straight to Thunder Heart Bison. The owners have built a menu around the bison, and they source nearly all their produce locally and sustainably from Springdale Farm, HausBar Farm, Johnson’s Backyard Garden and others. What can be obtained in town is sourced from Farm to Table. Their menu of burgers, tacos, short ribs and even ox tail pho will delight you. Take a chance, take a chance, take a chance on this.".

From TH: Farm to Table provides sustainable produce from farms just outside of town within an 80 mile or so radius, where we go when we can't find what we need "in Austin".

"The menu -- whose other ingredients are even local-er -- was prepared by a chef who sharpened her knives at the Belmont, and starts with standbys like burgers topped with Jack on Sweetish Hill buns, Milagro soft tacos with kicks of cumin, sweet smoked paprika, and chipotle, and a cold-weather special of bison chili".

" Fortunately – especially if you live or work near West 5th Street – there’s a newish food trailer that is devoting a lot of attention to making sure you know the glories of bison. And it’s all locally-sourced meat that will make you feel good about eating it."

"The main event itself was tender and falling off the bone – as good short ribs are supposed to be – but it balanced crispy, coffee coated edges with the inner moist, braised meat. The meat came easily off with a twist of a plastic fork, and had that wonderful, slightly gamey bison taste. In my at home cookery, I have been warned that bison is very easy to overcook and dry out, so I was happy to find that these folks know what they are doing. As the woman who shared my table said, ‘Whenever I want really good food that’s local and fresh, I come here.’ ". Read More >

"If you’re a bison lover, they will definitely have something to satisfy your taste buds. Also, almost all of their ingredients are locally sourced. I found this little tidbit very cool — they compost most of their waste!". Read More >

"We were really impressed with the food – everything was full of flavor and had obviously been well-prepared. We met Cat, the co-owner/chef, who had such a great attitude, and an obvious love for local meats and produce.". Read More >
