We had lunch here when we arrived in town. Restaurant has a diner -like atmosphere with a western feel. Food was good and portions were larger than normal for a decent price..

Great food and even better service. I go between their eggs Benedict and corned beef hash. Also love that they have an open, dog-friendly patio.

Big Horn restaurant has the best breakfast in town. The staff are also super nice and friendly. In the busy season, expect to wait to be seated, but the food is well worth it!

The fish pieces were fairly heavily breaded and a little greasy; I usually just eat the fish inside but it was pretty thin. The french dip sandwich and au jus with it were... More

Was looking for a quick place to eat but I didnt want fast food. I drove by and saw the sign out front and liked the name so I decided to give it a try. I got right in and the staff was very friendly. The menu seemed a little limited ( I am a picky eater). So i decided... More

Ate their just before noon and meal was good. Waiter was helpful, service was prompt and price was right. I had breakfast and it was all that I expected. Definitely somewhere that you would want to try when in EP.
