Dinosaur Café at Charlie B’s

Readers' Pick

Finally, an excuse to talk up Missoula’s finest spot for pulled pork po’ boys, and a pint of beer. This category is long overdue, and it’s fitting that the ragin’ Cajun cuisine at the Dino secures the inaugural honors. Nestled at the back of the classic Missoula bar, Charlie’s, hardly an afternoon goes by that the Dino’s tables aren’t packed with hungry lunchtime epicureans. The gumbo, the jambalaya, the meatball sub with curly fries—this is no hit-and-miss menu. Fine imports like alligator sausage separate the Dino from your average prefab burger joint by a wide margin. And since Charlie’s is traditionally a workingman’s bar, the Dino offers white-collar food at blue-collar prices. Dinosaur Café/Charlie B's: 428 N. Higgins; 549-3589
