The Best Chili In The West Can Be Found At This Unassuming Wyoming Soda Fountain
Wyoming’s small towns are hiding all sorts of secrets. One tiny town, Chugwater, is home to the best chili in Wyoming, and maybe even on the
planet. Make your way out to the eastern part of the state and try some for yourself!
The Chugwater Soda Fountain is the longest standing soda fountain in Wyoming, and it's a place that truly embraces its roots.
In addition to being the oldest soda fountain in the state, it's also the oldest business in Chugwater! You can feel the history when you walk inside.
For years, travelers headed for the bright yellow building in search of malts, shakes, and the famous chili served from this kitchen.
Recently, the Chugwater Soda Fountain enjoyed a facelift, with some interior renovations...
... and a fresh coat of paint. Mint Green was chosen to represent their famous minty milkshakes!
The delicious shakes are one of the reasons that people flock to this tiny town.
Their original flavors like Blackberry, Black Cherry, Blood Orange, Cherry, Cola, French Vanilla, Lavender, Raspberry, Root Beer, and Strawberry are all marked on the menu. Try one of them, or try something like their Kahlua, Cheesecake, or M&M shakes. You can't go wrong!
Beyond the shakes, though, what draws people to the Chugwater Soda Fountain is the world famous Chugwater Chili.
Chugwater Chili Corp began in 1986, when locals purchased an award-winning chili recipe and turned it into a business to help bring some prosperity to the tiny town.
While the Soda Fountain isn't directly affiliated with the spice company, it certainly uses their seasonings and recipes to make the best chili in Wyoming!
Come visit the Chugwater Soda Fountain for an old-fashioned milkshake and the best chili in the Cowboy State. It's worth the drive from anywhere!
