With fishing season upon us and many traveling the I-90 corridor I thought it would be interesting to
hear about some good, off the beaten path places to eat along the way. Looking for good food and portions with reasonable prices.
Just to put some limits, let's say 50 miles north or south of I-90 from North Bend to Billings.
Guy Fieri has his, where's yours?

Blustery's (Vantage)... blueberry milkshake as consolation for having to climb back over the pass towards the wet side and work.

Twede's in North Bend - Cherry pie, great for breakfast
North Bend Bar and Grill - big portions, great American food
Corndogs up at the Pass - can't recall the name of the place, but Leland will probably chime in
Pioneer Coffee in Cle Elum - really awesome sandwiches as well as great coffee!
Caboose Bar and Grill - Cle Elum (next to the Cle Elum Fly shop - Troutwater) - Bar food!
Fiesta en Jalisco - Ellensburg just off the freeway - great after a day on the Yakima
The Tav - Downtown Ellensburg (College bar - burgers and beer!)

There are some good places in Missoula, Helena and Bozeman.. I don't know Spokane although I have stopped there a few times coming back from MT!

Does that dollar bill bar in Montana count?
Forgot the name but a cool place

Jamie,
That's the $10000 Dollar Bar.(now $50000) A bit of history but the food is marginal at best. Good pee stop and all the flies
(not the fishing type) you want in the summer.
Durango's in Superior has pretty decent food or if you take 135 at St. Regis heading towards Glacier
Quinn's Hot Springs is a good bet.

I never stop anyplace other than a fast food place or the corner store. Not one for feeding myself when I travel or fish.

Besides I live in Dillon and no place here has any good food to eat other than what I can cook up.

Ya know Jim, you might just live to be 100 if you shy away from those places.;)

McRibs do have some value; when you say something 'tastes like shit' somebody always says " how do you know that, have you ever eaten shit?"

The appropriate response is "No, but I've eaten a McRibs sammitch, and that's close enough."
