This restaurant is probably the best thing Gillette has going for it. (Seriously, for a population of 32K, there's really not much to see or do here.) Hands down, the best bbq place I've visited for a long time! The food was amazing and the...More

Stopped In for a quick lunch. Overall our service was excellent. Drinks and food delivered fast. The food was very tasty and a good value. We had a "non meat eater" with us who enjoyed his meal as well.

We are a family friendly restaurant. We were named Wyoming's Best Barbeque, and offer full service catering, carry out, and of course dine in. We have a great selection of tap beers along with a full bar.
