Good eats in Jackson

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Looking for recs on good food in Jackson. We're staying in town at the Cowboy Village, so walking distance is preferred.

Nothing fancy. We ate at Snake River years ago, so that's on the list. Bubba's is talked about a lot. Nikai Sushi? Any other must hit places for good grub and beers?

It seems every ski town has an awesome breakfast shop. Which one is Jackson's and where is it?

I ate at the Q Roadhouse last year when I was there. Their BBQ was pretty damn tasty. Its on 390, a couple of miles from the resort. Not walking distance from town but if you are on the way back from skiing it might be worth stopping at. We also enjoyed the food (and especially the beer) at Snake River.

No car, we'll be doing the bus thing to/from JHMR. Thanks for the reply though.

If you WANT to, you could stop in at Q on your way back from the Village. It's right on a main bus stop on the Teton Village Road. They also do a Happy Hour from like 5:00 to 6:00 with 2 for 1 beers.

Nikai is very good. So is Masa Sushi in Teton Village.

Billy's Burgers in the Cadillac Grill next to the Cowboy Bar (on the town square) for really great burgers.

Snake River Brew Pub 1.5 blocks south of the "downtown" post office (or about 4 blocks southwest of the square) for pizza and other good food.

Noni's for very good (but also fairly expensive) Italian.

The Blue Lion 2.5 blocks NW of the square for the best lamb anywhere in the world (and very good food other than the lamb).

Abuelito's about three blocks west of the square for Mexican. (And don't ask me if it's "authentic" Mexican because I have no idea what that is. I just like the place.)

The Bunnery 1/2 block north of the Square is VERY popular and very good for breakfast but... THE place for locals for breakfast is Nora's Fish Creek Inn in beautiful downtown Wilson. You probably won't make it there because the nearest bus stop is over a mile away.

Excellent Bob, thanks. I was checking out the Blue Lion online, looks great and I loves me some good lamb. Is it a dressy place though? We're only bringing jeans and fleeces for after skiing. Keeping it casual.

Blue Lion is VERY cool. Jeans are fine (the owner is a good friend of mine and a killer skier). There's absolutely nowhere in Jackson you can't go in blue jeans and fleece.

They'd be run out of town on a rail if they tried to enact a dress code.

There *is* a place that enforces a sport coat rule. That's the restaurant at the Jenny Lake Lodge in Teton Park (outstanding restaurant, btw). They have "loaner" sport coats on the rack next to the door and blue jeans are fine. They're also only open during the summer.

Excellent. I'll see if I can't get reservations before we go. The lamb sounds killer. I've lived back here on the EC long enough that sometimes I forget how laid back things are in the Rockies.

Thanks again for the info.

Jedediah's House of Sourdough, just off the square has an early riser breakfast 7-9 am, 2 eggs, meat, spuds and all the B&G or flapjacks & coffee you can eat & drink, $5.75. Fill up on it and a power bar on the lift and you're set for the day. Bubba's also has a nice breakfast, agree with every thing Bob has mentioned. I also like 43 North for dinner.
