There’s Nothing Better Than This Mouthwatering Burger Trail In Wyoming
Wyoming is known for a lot of things but food definitely isn’t one of them. Even though we don’t have a lot of fancy restaurants, we knock it out of the park when it comes to burgers. Wyoming has some of the best downhome diners in the country, and if you follow this food trail you’ll be able to sample ten of the best.
To follow this route, you can start in either Cheyenne, Casper, Lander, Jackson, Rock Springs, or Laramie. Because I’m based in Cheyenne I’m going to use it as my starting point, but feel free to change it however you need to.
To follow our route, start in Cheyenne. After enjoying the burger joints we’ve mentioned for the city take I-25 to Casper. Next, take US26-W west to Lander. After Lander, follow US287-N to Jackson. Your next step will be taking US191-S to Rock Springs. After Rock Springs take I-80 East to Laramie. Lastly, follow I-80 East to finish up in Cheyenne.
