Nice change from the mundane chain food restaurants

Inside, the Staggering ox looks as if it was created during a a violent collision between a 70's discotheque and a Subway sandwich shop. The result is the creation of a sub shop unlike anything I have ever seen before. For those brave enough to forge ahead after the bewildering entrance, you'll... read more

I love coming here for a casual lunch with my family when I am in town. My favorite sandwich is the Bleeding Heart with the Creamy Basil dressing! Set in a strip center near Carroll College, this place may cater to students but everyone is made to feel welcome. Service is super fast, you can get a beer if you... More

The place is decorated in an eclectic artsy way that makes it very unique. The food was adequate but could have been better. My grilled sandwich was a little over grilled. My companions' bowls were hot on top and cool on the bottom. We were there in the evening while the bar had live music but it made for a... More

Stopped here for a snack. We shared a Nuke and they were very nice about splitting it for us. The sandwich was very good, like always. Very quiet this time. We were just about the only ones there, so it was very slow. But we got our order right away, no waiting.

Aside from the uniquely shaped hollow bread tubes, the Ox is just an average sandwich place, and a fairly pricey one too. I do like the fact that it is a local business, not a franchise, and I'd rather spend my money here than at some of Helena's other chain sandwich places. So while there certainly is nothing wrong with... More

Yep, you heard me right staggering ox now has the best cheeseburger in town. It's called the All-American and it is incredible. It is a bacon cheeseburger with all the fixings, in the clubfoot bun. Totally fantastic can't wait to have another one.

The sandwiches are fantastic, yes, but the french onion soup is incredible. Thick crust of cheese on top, large chunks of onion and hearty broth all served up steaming hot!

In the heart of Helena Montana is the Staggering Ox, a funky sandwich joint that has been recognized by Food Network and Maxim magazine. They are famous for the clubfoot sandwich. Homemade bread baked in a can, hollowed out and packed with a variety of delicious fillings and sauces. We enjoyed the "Nuke" with asiago bread and chipotle ranch sauce.... More

I had the veggie sandwich on Italian bread with a side of ranch and loved it! My kids loved the sticky fingers with pb & j. The atmosphere was great and all the art and unique items gave my kids and I topics to discuss which helped in making the wait for food seem short!
