Update: Unfortunately, the Gourmet Gas Station closed.
A trip from Bozeman to anywhere in the Gallatin Canyon or Big Sky isnt complete without a stop at the Gourmet Gas Station. If the name alone doesnt instill a desire to munch, then maybe the gas tanker parked out front will.
The Gourmet Gas Station used to actually be in a gas station (at that time the tanker was on the roof), but it has since moved into the old Mackenzie Roadhouse building. Its roomier and the food is just as delicious.
Today I had the fish tacos with black beans and rice on the side. My husband had a bacon cheeseburger (hes on the low fat plan ;)), and we both kept saying how good it was. The atmosphere is colorful with just enough timber to feel like you are in Montana.
Here is how they describe themselves: Casual atmosphere, good food, and large portions with full bar service makes it most popular with the locals and a major tourist attraction. We offer legendary Mexican entrees combined with hand-cut ribeye steaks and seafood, providing quality food and service to everyone. From milkshakes made with Wilcoxsons ice cream to eight varieties of tequila for your favorite margarita, we have it all. You can download a menu here.
(Wilcoxson is a Livingston company that makes the best ice cream around, and Im not just saying that because we share the same address.)
The Gourmet Gas Station first opened its doors in 1995 and they are open for lunch and dinner Monday through Saturday and serve brunch, lunch and dinner on Sunday. Join in on horseshoes and Boce Ball in the summer.
