We stopped here for lunch while driving from Denver to Riverton. We found the Prairie Rose through TripAdvisor, and were so happy with our choice. It is a very short and easy drive from the highway -- maybe a five-minute detour? -- and absolutely worth it. It's in a part of Laramie that (according to my traveling companion) used to be very rundown, but appears to be perking up. Yes, it is a diner -- and I'm reviewing it as such. The decor is modest, but with some nice, quirky touches like the mobiles made from old flatware. Service was great (an apparently new waitress was serving tables beside us, and had some trouble, but the cook and manager were keeping an eye on her and letting her know what needed to be fixed, all in a friendly and humorous way), restaurant and bathrooms were clean, and the food was fantastic. I had an omelet, toast, and hash browns. All was good, and the hash browns were almost a religious experience: they were made of wide, but thin, strips of potato, with lots of crunch on the outside and tender, delicate potato goodness on the inside. I rarely permit myself to order hash browns, but I'm so glad I did here. They were truly excellent. Water and coffee refilled frequently and unobtrusively.
