    pretend their jokes are funny
    end the day right too

    **Just Good Food**
    --We generally avoid endorsements or advertisements, but like the old plumber said "folks gotta eat."
    +++ There are excellent places for breakfast, lunch, and dinner in West Yellowstone. These are of the 'ask anybody' variety. [Just don't ask a restaurant worker.]
    +++ There is an exceptional deli for sandwiches or box lunches.
    +++ There is a friendly pub & eatery for a satisfying dinner.
    To find out where these places are - - - just ASK ANYBODY.
    -----------------
    -- The Running Bear has excellent traditional breakfast; in fact that is all they do! Great pancakes, perfect eggs, 'taters to order.' Tell Mike that we sent you. It might get you a stock tip. Get there before 2:00 PM.

    -- Ernies Deli provides a quick breakfast of donuts, (or GIANT sticky buns,) and coffee if you are in a hurry. The biscuits and country gravy demand a bit more time; although you can get them to go.
    .. They excel at prefect sandwiches, (try the Ham & Swiss,
    or Pastrami,) offer an excellent selection of beers and wines, deliver friendly service, and have great box lunches. Tell Dawn that we sent you. It will get you a wink and a smile.

    -- Bullwinkle's Saloon & Eatery is a sports bar with a twist - the barkeep is a fly fisherman. Tell Mark, or Jackie, or Dennis that we sent you. You will get good food - good conversation - and maybe a local fly or two.
    .. The information is only slightly tainted with local hubris and it's free. You can eat in the saloon, or one of two dining rooms.
    .. They open at about 3:00 and trout is on the menu, along with steaks, pasta, sandwiches, special salads, daily specials, and some local favorites as well.
    .. They have an excellent selection of beer and wine. Even some excellent Champagne to go with that tender flaky trout.
    .. If you're very lucky, and if there's any left,
    try the cheesecake - yum !
