If you’re looking for big horns – literally – look no further than Foster’s Bighorn Bar in Rio Vista.
Along with an extensive menu of barbecue, steak, seafood and a fully loaded bar, diners can admire where some of the food on their plate comes from. The restaurant boasts a private collection of more than 250 big-game hunting specimens from Africa and North America.
The collection was put together by Bill Foster in the 1930s and ’40s. Several exotic and prized animals from his travels to Africa, Canada and Alaska hang on the wall, including an African elephant and giraffe head.
Foster, a native of Hayward, grew a passion for wildlife that included bootlegging. Running from the law, he later moved his wildlife collection to Rio Vista, where it has remained for more than 70 years.
