Fun, unique sandwich shop

First time in the Staggering Ox. Loved it! Service: Fast, adequate, not super friendly, but far from rude. Efficient. Food: Wide variety on menu, decent prices, fun and unique bread, tasty. Had the gyro sandwich (can't remember the actual name). Atmosphere: Excellent! Best part about it... read more

I've been to the Ox probably over 100 times (the Billings location catered my wedding in 2011) and it's still a favorite. The menu is incredibly varied and the sauces are wildly different from each other - I like the Blue Horsie and Dijon Vinaigrette. They offer a military discount, punch cards, different bread options each day, and then the... More

The Staggering Ox offers a unique sandwich design that is tasty, filling and unique.. Eclectic in design and location, this shop is popular with locals and visitors as well. Tried of the tradition rectangular sandwich design, the ox stuffs your meat and cheese choices into a cylindrical casing that makes the sandwich experience new and tasty. Mix it with your... More

The Staggering Ox has unique vertical sandwiches with funky names. They are delicious but really it is bread & filling that doesn't justify the price. They also have potatoe bowls, salads(don't get them they are just ok) & a few other unique items. For 2 people to order 2 sandwiches & an order of bread guts & a ranch it... More

We recently were in Helena for basketball tournament and try to visit Staggering Ox when we go. The guy who took our order was friendly. Took long time for our food and our Philly Melts were awful!! All bread and hardly any filling. Will not visit here again anytime soon!

This is a very unusual restaurant. It's in a strip mall and must have been something else first. It is huge. The counter where you order is off to the left and is very different. You chose your menu item and if you order a beer you have to sit it the back where there is another counter (Red Atlas)... More

A large eatery, or maybe a small food mall, it's not fancy looking, but very interesting. The bread is a tall, ribbed barrel, the center having been scooped out (those being available as

Crazy place with random decorations, I thought they must have awesome sandwiches. I stepped up and placed my order for a Mt. St Helen's Club Foot. I thought wow that is a crazy sandwich, too bad that was all I thought of it. The bread has a weird texture that was just not good. Like eating a sponge filled with... 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

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 find yourself at the ordering counter with a... More
