These 9 Montana Restaurants Have The Silliest Names But The Most Amazing Food
What’s in a name? We’ve listed restaurants that don’t look like much (but have amazing food), but what about restaurants that both serve delicious meals and make you smile with their quirky names? Montana certainly has a few of those, and we salute their creativity.
1. The Notorious P.I.G, 247 W Front St., Missoula
The name of this place is pretty amazing, but the food is even better. The Notorious P.I.G serves authentic Southern B.B.Q in the heart of Missoula.
2. Over the Tapas, 19 S Willson Ave., Bozeman
The wordplay is delightful, and so are the small plates served at Over the Tapas, one of Bozeman’s best restaurants.
3. Crazy Mary’s Fish & Chips, 1404 6th Ave N., Billings
The best part about this place―other than the outstanding fish & chips, the kind of delicacy not easily found in Montana―is that it’s owned by a beloved vivacious woman named Mary (who is actually quite sane). Stop by and you just might see her.
4. SakeToMe Sushi, 459 Electric Ave., Bigfork
You might not expect to find a fancy sushi restaurant in Bigfork, Montana. But not only is the name quite clever, but the food is good enough to impress the many out of town guests that discover it during their vacations.
5. Fox in the Henhouse, 1005 W 3rd St, Anaconda
Fox in the Henhouse is a wonderfully named food truck based in Anaconda that serves delicious gyros and fries. They also cater, much to the delight of everyone in town.
6. Whistle Pig Korean, 25 N Willson Ave., Bozeman
“Whistle pig” is a slang term for groundhog. And while that might seem like an odd name for a restaurant, rest assured, the Korean food here is extraordinary.
7. Pie Hole, 525 N Higgins Ave., Missoula
Pie Hole is a hole in the wall late night spot that mainly serves pizza by the slice, and the slices are excellent indeed. In a city with some seriously delicious pizza options, this place stands out, and not only because of their name.
8. Hole in the Wall, 602 Main St., Miles City
It might seem counterproductive for a restaurant to call itself Hole in the Wall. But if you’ve ever been to this unpretentious Miles City staple, you’ll understand that the food speaks for itself.
9. Crooked Tree Coffee & Cakes, 501 1st Ave N., Great Falls
It’s the crooked tree that always stands out amongst its perfectly straight counterparts, and this coffee shop certainly stands out in Great Falls. Founded by two sisters, Crooked Tree serves tasty lattes and baked goods, and you can also order beautiful special occasion cakes to be custom made.
Clearly, sometimes it’s the restaurants with the quirkiest names that have the best food. And sometimes it’s the unassuming
hole in the wall restaurants that serve unforgettable meals.
