Cactus Jack's Chop House

Reviewed By two-seater

The clerk at our hotel recommended this place as being "one of the top three in Rawlins". Wrong.Four of us walked into an empty dining room and the hostess/server seemed confused about where to seat us. We got our menus and water and it was straight downhill from there. I wanted a beer, but I was told to go into the bar and order my own because the girl taking our order didn't know what beer they served! I ordered the Brisket, Mac 'n Cheese and a green salad with ranch dressing. Two of us asked for both kinds of bbq sauce on the side so we could taste and decide which we liked. The young girl brought four salads (we had ordered three), but no dressing. She said she didn't have a pencil when she took our orders and she couldn't remember what dressings we wanted. Next came our entrees - my brisket was slathered with some sickly sweet sauce as was the pulled pork across the table - no sauces on the side, no butter for our potatoes, mac 'n cheese straight from the Kraft box and STILL NO SALAD DRESSING. After 15 minutes of trying to get ANYONE'S attention, she finally noticed us and came over. I asked again for dressing and butter for our potatoes.So, in summary - we were served by a young girl who has not been properly trained, the brisket was a sloppy mess, the bbq sauce was some cheap bottled sauce, the potatoes were cold long before we got our frozen butter, Kraft Macaroni & Cheese and (finally) little containers of generic dressings. Come to think of it, the salads might have been the best thing on the table.To the owner/manager - give your bartender a raise, he is the best employee you have!

For more than 65 years Denny's has been bringing people together over great food. It's the place where people can relax and be themselves; where they can enjoy classic American comfort food and everyday value. 24 hours a day. 365 days a year. Here, you ca

We were on the road like everyone else and needed a break badly. We decided to eat lunch and were pleasantly surprised by the attention to service and quality of the food that we received.

We were headed to another restaurant but discovered it was closed. We found Three Fiddlers ! The place is very well laid out, decorated nicely and comfortable.My dinner was an open face Philly Steak sandwich. It was a new twist on an age old favorite. My wife had wings and a salad. We were very pleased with this fare and will go back before our trip here ends in a week. Not a place you should miss when visiting Rawlins, WY

Had a decent meal at this truck stop with excellent service. I had an issue with my trailer and had two truckers that were willing to help me out and the staff was very helpful also. Great truck stop experience!

This is an average Subway, second visit this year, first review. This morning several tables were dirty (from yesterday, it was 8:30 am), no ice tea was available and rather pathetic looking tomatoes were used (I removed mine). Last visit was similar but there are few fast food choices around. Staff is nice but this could be run much better; cleaner (like most Subways) with fresher ingredients and ice tea.

Reviewed By RLStandridge

Where do I begin? Let me say that this place is busy and they probably need a few more waitresses. Once you order it goes quick, so just be patient because the food is worth the wait. The fried onion ring appetizer was probably the best I have ever had anywhere. They are lightly fried, are more than 4 people can eat and they are delicious. The side salads with the meal are excellent as well as huge with great blue cheese or ranch dressing. Our party of 4 raved about the dressings. Then the Porterhouse steaks were enough for two people, grilled to perfection with excellent seasoning and butter on top. The bake potato was small but it was loaded with butter and sour cream and was good. The waitresses were nice and did a great job of refilling our glasses and ensuring we had everything. This place has great food, you don’t want to miss it.RLStandridge --Thank you so much for choosing to dine with us, and for giving us your feedback following your visit.You are right we do need a few more waitresses on staff, and have recognized that short coming and we are actively trying to bring a few more on staff. I'm glad your meal what worth the wait and your Porterhouse was perfect. Yes the portions are large. But at Michael's "Big City" Steakhouse it is our goal to make sure no one leaves hungry. I do hope you make plans come in and dine with us in the future!

Cappys Drive In Restaurant

Reviewed By Bob A

We were staying at the hotel next door so this was convenient. Exterior and interior of the building are rather plain. The inside smelled of good food, but, the aroma was better. The food is okay - just not great. The service is good - just not great. But this is a small town so not a lot of options are available.

After being turned away at another local restaurant in Rawlins because of a silly rule that they could not seat us in a near empty restaurant because they did not have enough servers, we stumbled upon this local gem. They said they were open 24 hours and we sat in a booth observing the cook make our food. We had steak and eggs and country fried steak and we were able to observe how meticulous the cook was in timing the food to make sure the 2 dinners were served hot off simultaneously. The food was excellent for a little diner and I would recommend due to its friendly service after having terrible service at another nearby restaurant.

This place was hopping on a Saturday evening. I tried the guacamole bacon burger and it was excellent. I also sampled a local brew, Saddle Bronc Brown, which did not disappoint. Reyna provided excellent service. I would definitely stop here again.

Aspen House Restaurant

Reviewed By Jellybaby67

Struggled to find anywhere to eat that would serve high quality, real food. Thought this sounded ok, although we were a bit taken aback when we arrived. It’s like arriving at your granny’s house and is such an unusual setting for dining with tables dotted about in different rooms.We were seated in a small room with one other table. The menu was great and we really hadn’t been expecting to eat Asian cuisine here but thought we’d try it. Our meals were plentiful and very flavoursome. We were very impressed and enjoyed our meal greatly. Would definitely recommend.
