1. The Prime Rib Restaurant

Restaurant, Wine Bar, Steakhouse

In operation since 1983, The Prime Rib is one of Gillette’s premier dining establishments. As you might guess from the name, they pride themselves in having excellent steaks, but it certainly doesn’t stop there. Their wine list is also one of the best in the city, and their staff will be happy to tell you which pairing will make the flavors in your meal really pop. They’ve won a host of local and national awards, including recognition from Wine Spectator and the Gillette Chamber of Commerce. In addition to some of the best steaks around, they are also well known for their variety of desserts and appetizers — see if you can try something from all three courses.

2. Pho and Bakery 59

Restaurant, Vietnamese

Gillette, Wyoming might not be a place you’d expect to find fresh, authentic Vietnamese food, but Pho and Bakery 59 will blow all your expectations out of the water. They really have something for all seasons — light spring rolls for a snack during the warmer months and steaming bowls of pho, Vietnamese noodle soup, for the cold Wyoming winter. You’ll love the mixes of flavors in their noodle and rice dishes, which come with all different combinations of meat and seafood. For a taste of Vietnamese street food, try one of their banh mi, or sandwiches with either pork or beef.

Humphrey’s Bar & Grill

A great sports bar is a very valuable thing, and Humphrey’s Bar & Grill wants to be that for you when you’re in Gillette. Conceived by a group of friends towards the end of their college career, Humphrey’s started as a way to let the owners put their true loves of beer, sports, and food into their career, and since then, it’s existed to share their joy with yours. You’ll find something for everyone on their menu from burgers to salads to steak; everything you could ever want while watching the game. On top of that, they even have a number of choices from Southern cuisine, which is a welcome surprise in a place as far from the South as Gillette.

3. Jordan's Western Dining

Bar, Restaurant, Steakhouse

While you’re in Gillette, maybe you’d like to get an idea of what the Old West was really like — and that’s when you should head over to Jordan’s Western Dining. Their menu is packed with American classics, although you’ll notice plenty of interesting twists on what you’re used to. One of the best examples of this is the lobster corn dog appetizer. Beyond the food, though, the part of the restaurant — the bar, specifically — is really a part of history. It used to be the bar at the Silver Dollar Log Cabin Saloon in Baker City, Oregon, and it had already been in business for over 120 years before moving to Gillette.

4. Los Compadres

Restaurant, Mexican
