There are far too few restaurants in the town of Cheyenne, in fact we couldn't find any place to eat in town that looked halfway decent. The clerk at the front desk of our hotel (The Hitching Post - don't fall prey to the photos and book a room there! Check out my review) recommended the Senator's Restaurant. It was quite a drive from town and at first glance seemed ok. The inside resembles a barn, large, open area with beams and a wooded floor. The place is very rustic and fairly dark (not a good sign). I don't eat meat and don't begrudge those who do (like my traveling companion) so I was ok with trying the place out. I can usually find something to eat even if it's just a large salad and some veggies. First we ordered drinks. From our table we could see the drinks sitting on the service bar, mine was straight up so it was getting warm; his was "on the rocks" so it was getting watered down. We flagged down a server and asked her to please get them. After that I had to go to the bar to order and pick up the drinks, then bring them to the table, it was faster. My honey ordered a steak ($34) I think it was a T-bone and I ordered the veggie burger (which I won't bother to review because you know already it was terrible). A good portion of the steak was left on the plate in the form of fat. The waitress suggested the salad bar but one look at the condition of the food - warm, flies all over everything- turned me off. There was one young man with a baseball cap on backwards (yup-that says it all) carving a big piece of meat (probably prime rib or bison) but the flies were landing on the meat. Now you have to remember this place grows its own meat for the restaurant and the ranch is nearby so where were those flies before they landed on your beef? Landing on a beef "byproduct" I'm sure. Not a pretty picture.The side of grilled veggies was mediocre and the baked potato was very small but tasty. As I said, you have few choices when in Cheyenne and we didn't stay long enough to investigate any other restaurants so I have no other recommendations. I would say check this website to find someplace with consistently excellent ratings, either that or take your chances here with the flies. There was one bright spot-the band was excellent and the drinks were cheap (even for premium liquor).
