I picked this place to eat in Rawlins because I saw the owner commenting on every review and I believe that shows he takes pride in his business and cares what customers think. When I walked in, it was very smokey. If you smoke, that's great. I sat at the bar and was greeted by the bar tender and she was so friendly I felt like I was at home having my mom serve dinner. I had to order the cheeseburger based on the owner's comments and it was GREAT!!! The fries had this extra crispy batter or something on them and they were just as good. Topped it off with a diet soda and it came to under $10. While they don't specialize in food items, the food is tops!

Based on the previous reviews I thought I would give it a shot. The reuben was served on cheap wheat colored bread. The Green Chili used way too much chicken stock or broth and was much closer to checken stew than Green Chili. Smokey barroom atmosphere.

We are regretful that you did not appreciate your meal as much as we would have liked. But I would like to clarify a few things about our products that you tried. The so called "cheap wheat bread" is actually Sara Lee light rye. Our Green Chili is an authentic New Mexico style. Made with Hatch chilis that we get from our friends in New Mexico. There is no chicken broth used nor any fillers such as carrots or potatoes. You get chunky pork tenderloin. Some "fast food" style restaurants use ground pork as well as fillers to make it go further. One last reply to your comments would be that yes, we are a bar & grill. Bar being first and foremost. We do not claim to be a restaurant. But we try to keep our clientele happy with a small but tasty menu.

Driving across Wyoming and stopped in Rawlins for lunch. We stopped at The Office after reading Trip Advisor. What a treat. Lunch at the bar served by the owner, Jo. We had the brisket sandwich and the green chili.....both delicious. I would recommend this bar/ restaurant to all.

Thank TribTraveler

Stopped at this local watering hole fog lunch on our way through town. Basically a very cool bar with pool tables. We sat at the bar and had lunch: a really spicy, terrific green Chili, a stellar brisket sandwich (seriously good) and a solid cheeseburger. The service and locals were friendly.
