Pinedale, Wyoming, located in west-central Wyoming, is a sportsman's paradise, as it's with a few minutes of some of the best outdoor activities, including boating, hunting and fishing, that the great State of Wyoming has to offer. When you engage in engage in the cornucopia of outdoor activities the area has to offer, you get hungry, and that's where Wrangler Cafe comes in, as they offer some of the best food to be found in Pinedale.

As with all of reviews that I publish, I have no affiliation with the restaurant reviewed, and there is no monetary gain on my part, as I am simply a person who likes to eat, and I love to write-up, and publish my dining experiences.

Photo:  Wood poles, false front, potted flowers, elk antlers and a patriotic sign, in alternatating red, white and blue spells out the name of the restauant, W-R-A-N-G-L-E-R-C-A-F-E.  Wrangler Cafe, in Pinedale, Wyoming hits the spot for breakfast.  It's late-Tuesday morning, August 29, 2017, and I've arrived to enjoy breakfast in Pinedale.

Photo:  I walked into a busy restaurant on this late-Tuesday morning.  As you walk in, the long dining room is to your right, and parallels the kitchen.  There is a u-shaped counter at the rear of the room which is shared by customers and staff, and is a place where the staff like to eat and chit-chat with customers.  I love the rustic decor.

Photo:  There are lots of funny signs and plaques hung on the walls of the restaurant.  No, I had nothing to whine about, so I didn't have to pay the $5.00 surcharge.

Photo:  I found a place at the end of the counter, where the locals mingle with the staff, where all of the events of Pinedale, Wyoming, the country, and the entire world are discussed.  My host is the gentleman wearing the maroon shirt, on the "staff" side of the counter, and the other gentleman seems to be the guy in charge.  The lady at the end of the counter seemed to be the "moderator," as she seemed to lead the conversation in local gossip, and the events of the world.  The television was tuned to Fox News, and the broadcasts were mostly about the ongoing Texas hurricane and flooding, and that, along with local gossip, were the main topics discussed.  I mostly listened, as I didn't have a whole lot to ad to the conversation.

Photo:  Alex, my friendly host, brings my breakfast with a smile.  Alex, along with all of the other staff members spoke Spanish among themselves, which surprised me, but I surprised Alex, along with the locals sitting at the counter, as I switched over to Spanish.  I really never had thought that I'd speak Spanish in Wyoming!  Perhaps that brings out the "wrangler" in me...

Photo:  Before today, I'd been camping in Yellowstone National Park, feasting on a diet of mostly canned food, so I was ready to enjoy a delicious breakfast.  I smile as Alex snaps my photo, on my request.

Photo:  Chicken fried steak sounded amazing to me, so that's what I ordered.  The perfectly breaded and cooked steak was covered in wonderful sausage gravy, and was tender and delicious.  The sourdough toast mostly covers the hash brown potatoes and two eggs, cooked over easy, but it was not a problem, as the breakfast was delicious!

Great food, great service, and a restaurant that truly reflects the character and flair of the Pinedale locals.  Stop by Wrangler Cafe, in friendly Pinedale, Wyoming,  for delicious food, along with lots of friendly conversations...
