The Bar J Wranglers will entertain the entire family as they take you down memory trail with songs, stories, comedy, yodeling, fiddling and more! Experience an evening you'll never forget at the Bar J Chuckwagon. The gates open at 5:30pm and the dinner bell rings promptly at 7:00pm. For the best seats come early. Visit our western village where gift shops await, take a horse-drawn wagon ride through scenic attractions, sample Dutch oven biscuits, enjoy refreshments from our Waterin' Hole, and chat with the Wranglers! With a seating capacity of 750 people, it may surprise many to know that we serve all our guests in less than 25 minutes. We can easily handle tour groups or convention parties with true western hospitality.

“Good entertainment and a GREAT meal!”
Reviewed July 24, 2014

This was a great stop for our last night of vacation. The food was AMAZING! You will NOT go home hungry! The entertainment was good. Those guys can sure entertain! My only complaint was the wagon ride. Not worth the money! Very short and disappointing! SAVE YOUR MONEY!

The Bar J Chuckwagon is top notch! It is incredibly well run and the entertainers are world class. We attended with 8 - including 9 and 11 year old boys - everybody loved it. I had the rib eye steak - it was excellent and a great value considering the entertainment that accompanies your dinner. Everybody in our party loved the chuck wagon style food. The boys did the wagon ride prior to the show and we enjoyed the grounds. It is immaculately clean and the staff and performers make you feel very welcome. There are laugh out loud jokes and fantastic harmonies - one of the highlights of our trip to Yellowstone/Jackson/Cody. It is great to know that such a fantastic night of entertainment still exists!

“Entire Family loved it!!”
Reviewed July 21, 2014 via mobile

BBQ beef was excellent and our 3 boys enjoyed the food and show as much as we did!! I would highly recommend the Bar J Chuckwagon Supper!! It is a must do in Jackson Hole! Get there early so you can sit on the bench while waiting for it to open. The family who owns this dinner show is very classy and run a top notch dinner and show!!!

“Good dinner and show but a little long for me”
Reviewed July 20, 2014 via mobile

I have mixed feeling about this place. The food is fine, portions are large. They are very organized and they do feed a lot of people very quickly. Get there early for a good table. I guess we were not early enough, we were placed one table from the back, my son and I couldn't see much of the show from back there, the people in front of us were very tall.

The show is well done and these guys can sing, but cowboy music is not for me. I kinda of already knew this going in but my husband really wanted to go, so we went.

The show lasts about two hours, people with small children left early. I feel it would have been difficult to get a small child thru the serving line.

They give you a pretty hard sell for cd's and DVD's, which gets old fast. Having said all that, everyone around us seemed to be having a great time, so if you enjoy this type of music you will be fine.

The staff was very friendly, and I thought the pricing was fine given the area we were in.

“The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly”
Reviewed July 19, 2014

The Good: Let's start with the punch line. You will totally get your money's worth. This was the icing on the cake to our vacation.

The dinner show is excellent. You should not leave Wyoming without visiting this family run venue.

Tip: Get there early and find a seat facing the stage in your assigned table

Drinks and snacks are available for purchase before dinner. Free biscuits and honey outside before dinner. A nice touch!

The bad: if you get there early as recommended, be prepared to wait a long while before dinner is served without much entertainment or anything else going on. We arrived at 5:30 pm as recommended and dinner did not start until 7:00 pm as scheduled. We basically sat at our table for an hour with other guests and played with our phones and cameras. The kids where going wild and growing restless. But it is a small price to pay for what comes next.

The ugly: No alcoholic beverages are sold. Draft beer would be nice. Food is average at best (too much BBQ sauce), but they still earn a full five stars.

Bottom line: Great deal, great entertainment, nice people, just a pleasure.
