We Invite You to Help Us

Protect & Nourish These Ideals

We’ve re-introduced bison to America’s table and in doing so created a market for this protein-rich, nutrient-dense meat. Bison is the cornerstone of our menu and we are proud to serve more bison than any other restaurant in the world.

We take great pride in ensuring all guests receive a warm and memorable experience leaving them feeling better than when they came in. From a bowl of half sours to our two-dollar bills, we empower each team member to deliver Big Sky Moments in ways that are natural and effortless to Ted’s and our guests.

Our restaurants represent classic saloons of the 19th century where cattlemen and land barons found a little relaxation after a hard day’s work.

We believe in leaving a better world for future generations. You’ll see this in our commitment to local growers, the paper straws, the Boraxo soap in our restrooms and sustainable choices in our kitchen operations.
