Who’s hungry?! If you are, then Cheyenne is the place to go. With tons of locally-owned restaurants and friendly people, you won’t leave hungry and you won’t leave angry! Here’s a peek at what I ate when I went up to Cheyenne, Wyoming, to visit my friends Amanda and Brock!
I flew into Denver because that is the closest major airport to Cheyenne, and my friend Amanda kindly picked me up. I found this place on Trip Advisor and thought it would be a convenient spot to get lunch on our way to Cheyenne, since it’s just across the Colorado-Wyoming border and just off the Interstate. We couldn’t have made a better choice!
Not only do they have an amazing steakhouse restaurant, they also have camels, miniature horses, ostriches, bison, and so much more to see on the ranch! We both got the Ranch Hand Randy burger, and it was definitely the right way to start the trip!

This was on the upscale side of things, and if you really want to eat here on a busy night, you might need a reservation! Amanda’s husband Brock joined us, and we all got something completely different!

Epic is the right word for this breakfast spot. Amanda had been on the hunt for a great breakfast place she and her family can go to every week, and we think we found it! Their menu is huge and truly seemed to have something for absolutely everyone, so even if you have a picky eater in your party, they will definitely be able to find something they like!

This is such an elegant and cool coffee spot! It’s in an old theater, and the feel of the place is incredible! I just love seeing old buildings turned around and given new life, and this coffee shop has done a great job of that.

This is a great spot for a quick, lite lunch while taking in all that Cheyenne has to offer. We had plenty of ground to cover and wanted something on the go, so this was an easy choice. They have any combination of fruit and juice smoothies you could possibly want, and they have actual food, too!

This place has the world’s most perfect pick-me-up! Having just come off a trip to the UK and then jetting over a couple more time zones to Wyoming, my body clock was a little confused! The fun coffees here come in any combination you can dream up, but most of the work has been done for you because the owner really knows what he’s doing! He’s got some incredible combos already there for you.

I’ll be honest, this was not our favorite place to eat. The pizza was ok, but the service was slow, and there were kind of a lot of rules for how to order! I’ll let you judge for yourself, but I always want to share my honest experiences!
It’s a bit off the beaten path and it’s kind of on the small side, but this is definitely one of the best places to eat in Cheyenne! The service was friendly, the food was filling (and oh so good!), and they literally have the biggest cinnamon roll I’ve ever seen! It’s only $7, but it’s basically a whole pan of large cinnamon rolls all rolled up into one, icing included! They go through four dozen per week—-that’s 48 HUGE cinnamon rolls!
