When I asked about it, I was told that is the sandwich and I really would enjoy it. I didn't. Secondly, I am glad... More

We stopped in Helena on route between Yellowztone and Glacier. The hotel where we were staying recommended the Staggering Ox for lunch. The sandwich variety was enormous. The sandwiches were huge,flavorful and very filling. In particular the "heartbreaker" was terrific

When I asked if anything had MSG, the man at the counter said, "well doesn't everything? Isn't' it sort of like salt?" I should have walked out then but decided I wanted to try it. The result was a migraine headache. The taste of the food was average and other servers were friendly but not worth the headache.

I stopped by the Staggering Ox on my trip through Helena. I tried the Three Mile Island, which by name, suggests that it may be hot/spicy. It's anything but hot. However, it was very tasty and I would recommend it to anyone. The athmosphere is a bit different. The layout is a bit different, as the restaurant seems to be... More

I love the ham and cheese or ham/turkey/cheese, It's simple yet the way it's put together in the barrel bread makes eating a sandwich fun. I will admit it can be a bit messy, and sometimes I have to use a fork and scoop out part of the sandwich and eat it like a salad until it gets down slightly... More

This is a very unusual place. the bread is baked in cans and the inside is scooped out and you can get it with dipping sauce. the French onion soup is so goooood

I have ordered sandwiches from Staggering Ox 4 times in the past 3 weeks and never been disappointed. I like the Capitol Complex. It is filled with different kinds of meat and cheese along with lettuce and tomato in a bread can. I also order the french onion soup and heat it up at a later time to eat. A... More

It's an interesting place, but not so great for food or atmosphere. We had lunch, and it was okay. The room is big-- looks like it used to be retail sales space that's been converted to a restaurant dining space. Minimal decor, sort of worn, and faded, but without any particular authenticity. The food was not great value and pretty... More

If you are in Helena, Montana, please try the Staggering Ox! When we found the Staggering Ox in a "strip mall", we were unsure but as we say a stream of people going in and coming out, we decided to try it. The atmosphere was basic and once inside the place, it was a little confusing as to just where... More
