Description: Originated on a working cattle ranch, the Bar J Chuckwagon takes you back to the spirit of the old west with a relaxing atmosphere, rib stickin' meal and authentic cowboy entertainment. 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 Value for the Money”
Reviewed July 30, 2014

Took my children and grandchild so they could have the cowboy experience. Although these types of places are a little hokie, I thought the show and dinner were a very good value. The entertainment is very good. They are organized and have a very good system. The meal leaves a little bit to be desired. While most of it is tasty, the beans are terrible and they just about tell you that. My 11 year old granddaughter wanted the steak dinner and I wanted the child's plate of ribs so we worked out all that between us. I had plenty to eat and was glad we did the exchange. Do get there early because first come, first seats up front. Was glad that tax and tip were included in price. We all enjoyed it and felt it was a good value .

“Great food, great music, fun for the family”
Reviewed July 29, 2014

We (family of four, two kids, 11 and 8), just came back from the Bar J Chuckwagon. We had a very good time. The food (ribeye) was tasty and for the amount of food and entertainment, you can't beat the price. The Bar J Wranglers were entertaining, funny, and their music sounded great. I would highly recommend the dinner and show.

“FUN!!”
Reviewed July 26, 2014

This was a special perk on our trip and glad we went! The dinner is served in a big area with picnic tables, "tin" plates and typical cowboy food! You can get chicken, steak, pork, and ribs--whatever you want and all the fixins' to go with them. Delicious! You'll also see one of the best cowboy singin' shows here at the ranch! The harmony and humor was continous. Just a fun place to visit. Don't go to Jackson Hole with visiting the Bar J.

“Best Cowboy Show, good dinner, fair price”
Reviewed July 25, 2014

Loved the singing, joking, fiddling cowboys. Chuck Wagon supper was good, extremely well organized, easy parking. Inside seating for 650 at picnic tables (seat 14 each). Friendly, family crowd. First arrivals sit nearest the stage, so come at 5:30 PM for the 7:00 meal. Show starts at 8:00 PM. Reservations usually necessary. Only dislike was the picnic table seating was a little hard on my back (we are seniors). Ask if diners seated outside at picnic tables can sit in folding chairs near the stage for the show. That would be quieter dining and better viewing of the show.

“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!
