Pondersa Cafe and Bar: Good Food With Great Service
Just down the road from the Best Western Devils Tower sits the Ponderosa Bar and Cafe. From the outside it looks like gawdy a western bar and saloon. However inside what a pleasant surprise. Very friendly staff and good food.
The restaurant is family run and the attention to detail shows. It is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. We had lunch there. The lunch menu consists of a wide selection of sandwiches, burgers and platters. There is also a sandwich of the day. While we didn't ask what the white owl burger consisted of we went for the chicken caesar salad and the southwestern chicken sandwich. Both came with a choice of french fries or cole slaw. We ordered both. It was tasty and fresh.
No drinks or desert even though it looked like they had a good assortment of each.
No pictures of this nice little place but please look at the web site to get an indication of it.
Favorite Dish: Southwest Grilled Chicken Sandwich with Cole Slaw was fresh and tasted great.
Picnic area: Lunch at Devil's Tower
If you’re hungry when you get to Devil’s Tower there are a number of places just outside the entrance. We spotted a couple of cafes but decided instead to buy a few things for a picnic from the general store in the same area and enjoy them at the picnic area inside the park. This was a really nice spot about a mile beyond the entrance with shady trees, tables, grills and lovely views of the Tower through the trees. When we were there in September the leaves were just turning to gold and the setting was beautiful.
The picnic area is open April 23 through the end of October, weather permitting.
Living in the area we have...
Living in the area we have gone to most of the restaurant and it's hard to say which is the best, as they all have good food (depending on who is cooking at that time and the mood their in) from the small restaurants in Aladdin and Pine Haven to the many choices you have in Sundance, Moorcroft and Hulett as well as right next to the entrance to Devils Tower.
