October, November, & December, 2011 – Bison Jack’s [Middleton]

Visit the Bison Jack’s website for hours, location, and menu.

Erin says: My dad, Bob, has been to Bison Jack’s a few times, and he had some useful comments.  I apologize that it took me so long to get them up here.

Bob’s October report: I went to Bison Jack’s. It is definitely geared to be fast food. They are also concentrating on hot dogs (95% weighting) of various types plus a hamburger. They store the already cooked sausages/hot dogs in big warming pots. The burger they got from under the counter. Probably from a warming drawer. Nothing is fresh cooked but at 11:20 a.m., it tasted fine. The quality of the bison burger was exceptional most probably due to freshness (probably not previously frozen) and leanness. The burger was very tender and obviously low in fat as it just barely stuck together.

They have hot toppings like grilled onions waiting in a crock pot like device. They have about a dozen and a half iced containers of cold toppings like tomato and lettuce, etc. They have several sides like potato salad, franks and beans etc. They have several choices of roll types.

All together a quick lunch or dinner. It opens early and stays open late. They do have soft serve. I’ll need to go back to try a hot dog and an Italian sausage. They do have hot marinara on hand. You have to go real hungry as the hot dog and burger are huge.

I’m mixed on the place. I would like the items cooked on the spot but that’s not fast food.

The place was filled with worker types. They were all dressed as if they worked with their hands installing piping, wiring or building buildings. The place filled up immediately at 11:40 a.m.

Bob’s November report: I visited Bison Jack’s at lunch. Tried their leader items; hot dog and baked fries. Both were good but nothing to get real excited about. $9.33 with a drink. It seems they don’t use preservatives. I have no sense they use them. After you leave you feel great.

They have a frequent diner card now. Five visits gets you $5.95 or the like off your next. Minimum purchase is $3.95. That drops the lunch price by almost 20% if you keep it up.

To date, the Italian sausage is spectacular, the burger is great, the sides so far are a matter of taste but go for $2.95+ per side.

Bob’s December report: Bison Jack’s are finally getting their pricing in line. They have a posted special of $9.50 for any dog including the Italian with any topping and one side (other than chili) plus a drink. That is at least $4 off the regular price of the standard fare. There is a special on the burger too but I don’t remember what it was. Similar I expect. The drinks are now .99 cents rather than the $2 they previously posted, which I doubt is a special. I think the client has put some price pressure on them. I agree wholeheartedly with the change. That makes them competitive and not just for the uniqueness aficionados.

They did give me a bowl twice the size of dog and beans as a side. The previous bowl was a bit small. Now it is a bit big. The Italian dog topped with marinara only is still the best. The burger is next best. The standard dog is nothing special other than the fact that it is made of Bison.

    I’ve been browsing online greater than three hours lately, yet I by no means found any interesting article like yours. It’s beautiful value sufficient for me. In my opinion, if all webmasters and bloggers made good content material as you did, the net might be a lot more helpful than ever before.
