This is the best dinner spot I've found so far in Gillette. Their menu has alligator to wild boar. Great service and fresh salad bar. Definitely will be coming back to this place before I leave town.

As a self-described BBQ junkie I had to try it. The baby back ribs weren't great, but were certainly tasty with a pleasant smokiness. The rack I had tasted as though it might have been leftover from the previous night (was in at 11AM) rather than freshly-smoked.

We travel all over America and Canada on motorcycle and often eat on recommendations made by others. We were in Sturgis South Dakota and a bartender there insisted we try this place because we told her we were going to Gillette for the night. We really appreciated her recommendation. We were there on the night of August 5th and the... More

We like bbq joints and this place was close to our hotel so gave it a shot. Good bbq and good sides. I had the turkey and my son had the pulled pork.

Stopped by on a road trip late in a Saturday night- open until 11pm. Outstanding BBQ and great portions- you won't be disappointed if you stop into this spot about a mile off of Rt 90. Fall apart ribs, well smoked brisket and outstanding servers who aren't hard on the eyes. You have to love a local spot that had... More

Good food, good service, and reasonable. Accidentally found this place. Being from Texas we know BBQ. Of course Wyoming should have good BBQ also but you don't know till you try.

If you are looking for good BBQ in a rustic setting this is the place. Along with good BBQ they have one of the best salad bars in town. Always fresh with a great selection.
