We ordered the 1 lb. meal of BBQ Country Ribs and it came with cole slaw, baked beans, fry bread, and red potatoes. We shared it and are really glad we did! 1 lb. of ribs is much more than I had figured. Every bite was fall-apart delicious!

Great place for casual family dinning. The menu is varied and the service is good. They seem to be known for there bbq but there is nothing special about it. Oven baked till tender and smotherd in bottled sauce is OK but real bbq is pit smoked with hardwood and doesn't need sauce as a cover up.

Don't go here if you're on a diet but it is darned delicious! The ribs and broasted chicken are our favourites, and the fry bread is amazing. Service is usually very friendly, but it is a very busy place and you will have to wait a bit to get your meals. Worth the wait, though! We make sure we get... More

Our family recently ate here for supper, while vacationing in the area. While the food was delicious (you must try the fry bread!), it took over an hour and a half to get our food. We were told this was due to a large to-go order that had been placed. On a positive note, there was a magician walking around... More

You have to look carefully to find this place. It is behind the Nite Owl - the locals know it and the parking lot was full. Great ribs, baked beans and fry bread

Went to the backroom based on the reviews. At first I was not sure, there is not much overhead and it took a bit for someone to wait on us. However, when we were seated our server, Daphne was wonderful. I wanted the rotisserie chicken but they were out so I decided to try the breasted. the chicken was moist... More

$11 for a meal. Great food at a great price. It was recommended by the folks at the north american rv park. We will be back.

What a surprise to find such good BBQ in the Rockies! And the portions will blow you away (or blow you up). I had the combo platter of chicken and spare ribs. The order consisted of a leg and thigh (you can get the wing and breast) 3 spare ribs, fried bread with honey butter (oh my), coleslaw, baked beans... More

This is our favorite place to stop in and grab a bite on the way out of Glacier National Park. We favor the BBQ brisket and fry bread. They don't take reservations so you may have a long wait, depending upon the time of day/week, but it is worth it. Early dinner is a good time to stop in before... More

We've been to this restaurant repeatedly - they have some of the best food and service in town! We've taken friends there repeatedly and will continue to do so! This past week we had a friend reunion there with a party of 12 and the service was exceptional! The food is always good but this was a busy, holiday, weekend... More
