Morning Eats

Start the day right with a hearty breakfast. Try Eve’s at White Mountain Golf Course, where Sunday brunch is so good you’ll leave with a reservation for dinner. Try their egg toast II, with prosciutto, gruyere, arugula and potatoes on sourdough bread or the Greek salad topped with smoked salmon. Enjoy your coffee with a step back in time at the Coal Train Coffee Depot, with locations in two historic buildings: the Tomahawk Hotel in Green River and the red-brick train depot in Rock Springs. Be sure to try their international coffee drink of the month.

Beyond Borders

For dinner and a show, choose Sapporo Japanese Steakhouse. The hibachi grill and exciting menu options, like the Broncos special roll with king crab, tuna and salmon or the flavorful bonsai scallops, will leave you wanting more. And don’t just take our word for it, one Yelp review put it best: “The food was great and the hibachi cook was the best I've seen anywhere!”

Best Burgers & Burritos

For the best burgers and burritos, start in Sweetwater County. Stop at the Broadway Burger Station in Rock Springs for creamy shakes and juicy burgers. It’s so good that National Park roadtrippers have been known to retrace their steps back to this 1950s style dinner. Don’t leave without ordering the chocolate brownie or peach shakes. For some classic cowboy country eats, head to The Hitching Post for bison burgers, hot wings, fried cauliflower and other comfort-food favorites. 

Roll like a burrito over to Don Pedro's Family Mexican Restaurant in Green River. Their carnitas tacos, chicken burritos and top-notch margaritas are the ultimate power-up after a day on the road or adventuring outdoors. Come hungry and leave happy.

Crafted & Cultured

Take your seat at a local watering hole like Bitter Creek Brewing. This brewpub is known for legendary micro-brews, though a wine selection is available for vino lovers. If you time it right, guests can try the test batch of beer for unreleased gems. Did we mention their delicious menu? Don’t miss their spinach and artichoke dip.
