    They have the usual chains and Fast food establishments. We've eaten at the Chop House and the Prime Rib and had good food each time. Also we've had several good meals at the Bootlegger (Clarion).

    A must do is Lulu Belle's for Cinammon and Caramel rolls!!!! We tried to get them as a vendor, but they're not staffed for that.
    Ride Hard, go far, and keep smilin...

    Popeyes Chicken right around the corner from Camplex; and not a dirty dive type Popeye, but a tastee one..

    My guess is that town gotta have some good Mexican food hidden away, anybody local want to comment on that one?

    Food?

    I'll be eat'in at the local soup kitchen, after buying my "gas" to get there. Karol, maybe this is a good idea! Open a soup/chili kitchen at the rally, for support of some charity,etcetc....Keep the pots cooking all night and reasonably priced, with wheat rolls. I like it. I know its late and these ideas are just out there. Soup, how simple can it get? I'm very serious, cutting my budget somewhere for bike trips and will make Gillette, no matter what. Its really not a huge issue for me and maybe many others(getting to Gillette), but money is not going anywhere near as far as it did and I'm afraid too many are feeling the pinch, bigtime. I want all my 7-8000 Beemer friends there...Randy"Polarbear"

    There is a place down by the tracks that has a good breakfast burrito. I don't remember the name, but I should be able to remember it again. I sure hope so; I tried my first McGriddles at the West Bend National. Never again. Don't ask. There's a fishing story here, and that's all I'm gonna say.

    For the most part the rally food on campus will keep me busy, and cooking a few brookies hopefully (sorry Snoone) Friday night...

    But Saturday night would be nice to go eat the local Mexican, some chicken molay perhaps, a green chili buritto, smothered maybe, one or two along with a Margarita a virgin for me of course...I have to ride home!

    I will begin my quest....

    The Popeye's restaurant is closed. There are three mexican food places in town Maria's good, cheap, and our favorite, Las Margaita's, and Casa Del Rey. There is also a place called Mona's (that is down by the tracks) that also has mexican food and according to a friend of mine a very good breakfast burrito. There is also a BBQ place called Pokey's that is pretty good. There is also a Golden Corral, Applebee's, Perkins and Village Inn. Unfortunately the best restaurant Humphrey's will not be open due to a fire that happened last fall. There are a few Asian restaurants: Hong Kong, China Buffet, and the Great wall.

    Although I live in Rapid City, i've been working from time to time in Gillette for over ten years. When I'm staying overnight, I have some favorites:

    Mexican: Casa Del Rey west 2nd St; Las Mararitas south Douglas Hwy

    Chinese: China King Buffet in strip mall on Camel Drive, near HighSchool-- HUGE buffet selections! Hong Kong Restaurant (not buffet) west 2nd St

    BBQ: Pokey's BarBQue & Smokehouse, 406 S Douglas. good but not great like Bubba's in Cody or Jackson

    Pizza: Specialty Pizzas, 2619 S Douglas, just south of WalMart

    Karol's choises: as noted in her previous post: Prime Rib (1205 Douglas HWY) and Chophouse 113 S Gillette (downtown), both a bit up-scale, but very good.
