Where to Eat While Fly Fishing Yellowstone National Park
John C. Jones
In the northeast corner at the edge of Yellowstone National Park is the quaint little town of West Yellowstone. Most all of the stores are along the one main street (Canyon) running through town where 912 residents live year around. This town of some 50 square blocks swells to 1,500 residents in the summer.
West Yellowstone is located in southwestern Montana just 1.5 miles from Wyoming and eight miles from Idaho. The town shares a common border with Yellowstone National Park and is the Park's only west gateway. West Yellowstone considers itself to be the "Hub of Yellowstone Country" because of the excellent location to all the wonders of Yellowstone National Park with the added benefit of all there is to explore and do west of Yellowstone.
Among the great business places in West Yellowstone (Where I have been visiting for some 20+ years now), is Buckaroo Bill's Dining, owned by Bill and Ms. Gaily Arnado offers such fine, rustic, dining that have eaten over 70% of my meals there since June 2004 (Picture to the left).
The menu includes some wonderfully delicious buffalo burgers (very large), barbeque ribs, tocos (very good), and a great variety of just “great western cooking) – oh yes, the pizza is excellent! The food is mostly prepared from "scratch" and this is no "quick food place," trust me! One has the choice of dining inside or outside and enjoy the clean Montana air! Finish the meal off with some of their large servings of diversified ice cream choices to complete the meal. You will never meet nicer folks than Bill and Gaily.
