Anong's Thai Cuisine

Reviewed By Joe H

My wife has celiac disease so we are always looking for good gluten free food. We stopped for the night in Rawlins and found Anong’s mentioned on a gluten free site. We ordered the yellow curry and an order of Pad Thai to share. The yellow curry was perfectly cooked. The vegetables were crisp and fresh and the sauce had a nice subtle heat that contrasted well with the coconut milk. The Pad Thai was very complex and flavorful. What a great way to relax after a long day behind the wheel.

Huckleberry's Espresso & Ice Cream

Reviewed By mmcquest - Sacramento, California

We were traveling cross country and spent a night in Rawlins. Wanted espresso and a light breakfast before heading out so we found Huckleberries on Yelp. The coffee was very good and the breakfast sandwiches were not bad. Sat at an outside table and watched this cute town wake up. Service was excellent. I recommend this place for coffee and breakfast.

Went to Jerry's at 7:45AM and they were nearly sold out. I bought some rasberry pastries and some apple fritters. The rasberry tasted like rasberry and the pastry was light and tasty. The apple fritters were excellent. Large chunks of apple and the pastry was crunchy and soft. You have to get there early.

Aspen House Restaurant

Reviewed By EAZELIFF - Flagstaff, Arizona

Rawlins is basically an old railroad town, at least that is my impression, but that does not mean that it is a dumpy place. I thought the main business district looked fairly decent. The old Union Pacific railroad station, no longer used for passenger trains, is in good condition and apparently is some kind of conference or community center. I went to the Aspen House for dinner, and I was not very hungry, but wanted to try this supposedly classy restaurant in Rawlins. I had the cream of broccoli soup and the chicken dinner with barbecue sauce. Not the most exotic dish, but all well prepared. It is an old large house - some of the tables are up a big flight of stairs, and it is quite elegant, which is a bit of a surprise. The young lady servers were very gracious. Certainly worth your time and money if you are in this town and want a nice dinner apart from commercial places.

Deb B's Family Espresso

Reviewed By oceangoddess - Folsom, California, USA

This drive-through espresso kiosk was a blessing to find among lousy restaurant and hotel coffee. Deb was very friendly and accommadating (gave me cup of ice water, no charge) when she couldn't offer bottle of water for sale. Double latte was delicious and a welcome taste. For those who are looking for a real cup o' Joe in a sea of ordinary, stop here and say hi to Deb, too.

Buck's Sports Grill

Reviewed By Ariela C - Brighton, United Kingdom

This place was a lovely and most-welcomed surprise on a long car journey. It is not easy to find, but was recommended at the Rawlins gas station. The interior is quirky, staff very pleasant, and the food was excellent - more European-style dishes, a lovely break from the usual burger-style eateries. Highly recommended - worth an effort of finding it!

Rose's Lariat

Reviewed By Tim M

We stopped here on our eclipse trip for lunch. Great food. Friendly staff. Friendly customers.

My wife got the beef burrito and I got the relleno chimichanga. Both were great. Really good green chili. We split a cherry quesadilla that was very good. (Note that it has cheese in it and was topped with ice cream and whipped cream - different with the cheese but good.)

Be aware that it is a small place. We were there on a Thursday for lunch and it was very crowded with local folks.

Penny's Diner

A classic 1950s style diner that is tastefully decorated with nostalgic memorabilia and feature standard American cuisine, including hamburgers, meatloaf, old-fashioned sundaes, milkshakes, and malts – all made from scratch. Open 24/7

Reviewed By Sherry L - Saginaw, Michigan

It's open 24 hours and our hotel suggested we go on arriving late and their restaurant was closed. What a cute place! Just like some of the old diners when we grew up! The server and cook were friendly and hubby enjoyed watching the cook work bc it's all open. Hubby's grilled chicken sandwich was good and my patty melt was perfect. Would definitely recommend!

Stopped in for a late night dinner while passing through the state. Vast selection of food choices, including steaks, sandwiches, and Mexican dishes. We opted for prime rib & Philly steak sandwiches...both were excellent!! Would love to stop here again if in the area.
