After a snowy, rainy drive thru the Bighorn mountains this was a good place to stop. We got there just as a bus was leaving so we only had a short wait to be seated. Kids got trinkets...hats, sweatshirts... Food was pretty good and huge helpings. Even spotted an old cowboy that was telling stories.

Food was great.Spent 5 nights in Shell staying at Sunrise Mountain Lodge. Dirty Annie`s was a great place to stop and grab a bite on our adventures into the Bighorn Mountains.

Food was good. People are nice. There is a cowboy/rancher that sometimes shows up who is a hoot. All in all, your socks will not be knocked off but you will be able to continue on your journey.

This restaurant/store is where what some people would call "the middle of nowhere" Wyoming. I beg to differ! This small restaurant has fantastic food and great service. Like pancakes? Get the huckleberry pancake, but only get one! Probably 16" in diameter, fluffy, and delicious. Something cool to try though is the family pancake. Make sure there are 5 or 6... More

We dropped by - the name attracting our attention. Family friendly it was. Great food. Fun little shop to buy things. Great staff. Well worth the stop while zooming by. Sad to see the for-sale sign.

A coach load of us descended on the restaurant this morning for beverages and cakes. They rallied around got us all served with hot drinks and cakes. Can recommend the coconut cream pie

Dirty Annies is very interesting and olde worlde with a great atmosphere. It was very busy too considering it was a mid week afternoon in the middle of nowhere, just outside of the tiny town of Shell (population 37). As well as the café there is a convenience and gift store. We had burgers and burritos, both of which were... More
