I am Gluten Intolerant and they offered many choices to accommodate me....and with a happy spirit I might add! You can have breakfast anytime and their lunch specials are always an... More

I'm not sure why this restaurant gets such good reviews. Our breakfast was sub-standard at best. Nothing looked or tasted homemade, previously frozen for sure. We ate a lot of breakfasts on our 30 day roadtrip and this was by far the most disappointing. I'd be more specific about what disappointed us but I forgot my breakfast as soon as... More

We stopped here for breakfast on our way from Cody to Fort Collins. In our two week driving trip from Phoenix through Utah and Wyoming, this was one of the best breakfasts we had. More than the standard fare we found in most places and at a good quality. The service was excellent and the atmosphere was very friendly. A... More

We were on our way out of town and wanted something to go for breakfast. I ordered a breakfast sandwich with home fries to go. The food was very good and we would stop there again next time we pass through town.

Thermopolis, Wyoming is off the beaten path but it makes a wonderful lunch stop on the scenic drive Dubois or Riverton up to Cody. It's family-run funky, with great, simple food at both breakfast and lunch (they close about 3 pm). Service was friendly and prompt and everything we ate (ham and biscuits, patty melt with fries, vanilla milkshakes) was... More

We got there right at closing, they unlocked the doors and took our order. Hand cut French fries and a respectable club sandwich. For a drive by spot I would recommend it. The owner was very hospitable as well.
