This is a terrific breakfast / lunch spot with great cowboy history. It will be a walk back in time to a simpler time where good food, straight talk and honest work ruled the day. The walls are filled with the history of cowboy culture...More

If you like a very good caramel roll, Cowboy cafe is the place to go. Heard from several people not to miss the Cafe, and it was well worth it.

We stopped here for breakfast on our way out of town going to Yellowstone Park. The food was good and plenty of it. They were very busy but we didn't have to wait long. Would recommend the cinnamon rolls.

The food was not great. We went for breakfast and I had an English muffin that was not toasted and very chewy. My husband had sausage that was cremated and the prices are high for what you get. They also don't take credit cards.
