We were starving when we arrived at Helen's. Our family ordered cheeseburgers and fries. The wait was a little longer than we would've liked, but the giant burgers arrived with the hot fries and all was well. The only reason I gave Helen's 4 stars...More

If you like diner food, this place is great. Organic meat including local beef, Bison, Elk and more. Fresh cut French fries that are to die for. We enjoyed eating outside under the covered deck and some ate in the air conditioned dining room. A...More

A great burger. Really, really great burger. That's it. A couple of tips: You will wait. The burgers are prepared fresh, they are thick, and they rest before serving as they should, it takes a bit. Do not wait in your car. Come on out....More

We stopped here for dinner after a long day in Yellowstone due to the positive reviews. I found it overrated, expensive, and disappointing. It is not a drive-in. It is a walk-up. You would be waiting a long time for service if you stayed in...More
