Jackson Hole Food Review

Wingman | Apr 3, 2006 03:25 PM

The skiing was great, the food was not. That about sums up my trip to Jackson Hole. With phenominal spring conditions on the mountain I couldn't have been happier. However, my palate was left less than satisfied. Itemized below are the places we ate at, my recomendations are the Village Cafe on the Mountain (for pizza), Billys in town (for burgers) and the Silver Dollar in town (for game sausages).

Billy's - Attached to the Million dollar cowboy bar, great burgers however the ambiance was a little weird. Walking into a burger joint that has pantera playing is a bit odd but the food made up for it. I know the place is trying to be "kitchy" with their rules and overtly rude chef but if they toned it down a bit the place would be alot more fun. The burgers were very very good and I would go back for them.

Old Yellowstone Garage (OYG) - Perhaps the most unispired menu I have ever scene in my life. The place tries far too hard to be romantic and pretensious but fails on both accounts. We had no less than 4 people come up to us before we ordered to wish us a good meal (my god I'm not going on a trip to the moon!). I was excited to have some pasta mixed with local game but they had nothing on the menu of this sort. The service was very attentive but all in all this place really misses on everything it's trying to be.

The Bunnery - Good breakfast place, service was attentive and food was ok, really not remarkable but its worth a stop for an ok breakfast.

Village Cafe - Absolutley great whole wheat crust pizza. The pepperoni version is vastly superior to the plain cheese; I'm assuming they cook the pepperoni longer making the crust and cheese a bit better. At around $3 a slice it's a bargin for ski lodge food!

Picas - Was looking for some good mexican food since it's hard to find authentic mission style burritos in New York. The food was decent but really nothing great and the flavors didn't pop in your mouth like a burrito in Claifornia does.

Bubbas - Had breakfast at Bubbas and ordered the turkey and jack omlet, very good omlet cooked well with hardly any grease. The biscuit was very bland and fairly terrible but the eggs were good; breakfast burrito wasn't great either.

DOG - Good flavor in the burrito but I found the service to be very rude and the burrito itself to be very greasy. In fact I found all people under the age of 35 to be extremly rude and arrogant in Jackson Hole, is this normally the case?

Well that's it, as I said the food was awful but the skiing was great; since I was there for the skiing and not the food I'll call the trip a success!
