Can't wait to go back. It was a while ago, but I'm going back ! Food was good, and the Cowboy atmosphere was just so fun and cool. And the pie was delicious.

After spending the night in Teddy Roosevelt National Park we went here for breakfast and it was out of this world. I ordered like a cowboy and ate like a cowboy! This place really created the atmosphere of a real country breakfast. Being a city boy i really soaked it up, like i soaked up my eggs with the toast!

Our lunch here was acceptable. The place has lots of local atmosphere. Cowboy pictures covering all the walls. It was off-season, so it looked like mostly locals. The prices were very reasonable and the food was OK. Local diner quality. It closes at 2 pm, so we left in a bit of a hurry. No complaints.

Small friendly cafe in Medora with old cowboy photos all over the wall. Staff were great as was the service. Just had a breakfast in here, bacon, eggs and toast and it was good.

If you enjoy small town with character, Medore is a sure bet. We had dinner at the Cowboy Cafe and enjoyed it so much. The atmosphere was in character with the town, there were plenty of selections on the menu, the service was good and the pizza was exceptional. Great experience!
