These 7 Restaurants Serve The Best Pasties In Montana
When you grow up in Montana, your definition of pasties is a bit different than most. They’re not tasseled adhesives but hearty meat pies, and they’re delicious. And if you’re looking to try them, start at one of these seven spots.
1. Lisa’s Pastry Pantry, 2004 W Sussex Ave., Missoula
Lisa's pasties are filled with potatoes, drizzled with gravy and served with some seriously addicting fries.
2. Nancy’s Pasty Shop, 2810 Pine St., Butte
Just look at this amazing pasty. No wonder Nancy's is so popular!
3. Wind’s Pasties, 208 E Park Ave., Anaconda
Since 1959, Wind's has been serving scrumptious pasties in historic Anaconda. Their menu items are all natural and made from local ingredients.
4. Pug Mahon’s, 3011 1st Ave N., Billings
This Irish pub has an excellent reputation, both for the service and the libations. Their pasties are also excellent.
5. Joe’s Pasty Shop, 1641 Grand Ave., Butte
Joe's Pasty Shop has been an iconic Butte establishment for years. You won't believe the big flavorful meals served in this tiny building.
6. Sean Kelly’s Stone of Accord, 4951 N Reserve St., Missoula
At Sean Kelly’s, you can order mini pasties (shown here) or the Stone Pasties meal: a flaky puff pastry filled with shredded beef, potato, onion and carrots, served with champs and Guinness gravy.
7. Truzzolino Tamales, 1921 Harrison Ave., Butte
Have we mentioned Butte is a paradise for pasty fans? Truzzolino Tamales makes excellent Mexican food, but their pasties are their crowning glory. You can even get them frozen and enjoy them later.
Pasties didn’t originate in Montana (or even on this continent), but they have become one of our staples. Another, thankfully, is huckleberries. Here’s where to get some of the
best huckleberry dishes in the Treasure State.
