Restaurants in Billings, MT

Montana’s biggest city has many good places to eat as well as more craft breweries than any other town in the state. The place to go for breakfast — but only if you’re packing serious appetite — is Stella’s, home of hubcap-size monster cakes (eat four and they’re free) and cinnamon buns as big as a dinner plate, guaranteed to weigh one full pound (before frosting). And yes, there is one secluded portion of the menu titled, “Smaller Appetites.” Since the 1980s, the favored spot for hearty Mexican meals has been Sarah’s, the watchwords of which used to be “The Working Person’s Eating Place.” It still is, with fair prices for hefty smothered burritos, taquitos, enchiladas, tamales, and tacos. Sarah’s serves three meals a day, but if you’re hankering to splurge for dinner, the place to go is the Buffalo Block Prime Steak House in the historic Rex Hotel. Top-dollar steaks are wet-aged, then dry-aged and served with the likes of lobster mac & cheese or truffle fries.
