About Regional Flavor
The Big Sky State is a bonanza of big eats: ooey-gooey cinnamon rolls, pillowy steaks, deluxe burgers, and plate-wide pancakes. The western regions are huckleberry country, so look for the winey fruit made into ice cream, syrup for ice cream, candy, and pie.
Montana Regional Specialties
A pork chop sandwich can be a whole breaded-and-fried boneless chop on a bun or it can be a patty of ground pork, like a hamburger. While the whole-chop variation is a connoisseur's choice, there is no slighting the extra succulence of a ground one, which is how it's done at Pork Chop John's in Butte, where this oinky sandwich first was served.
