“Where should we eat?”— A magical question when exploring a new community. When it comes to the food scene in Sweetwater County and its surrounding area, we took to leading local food businesses and restaurants for their recommendations on where to grab a quick bite, sit down and dine, or indulge in something sweet. We asked a couple of local food influencers to share a little about themselves, their business, and where they chow down when they are off the clock.
General Manager and Executive Chef, Coyote Creek Steakhouse & Saloon
Ray Marini found his way from New Jersey’s beaches to running one of Rock Springs’ most popular food outposts, Coyote Creek Steakhouse & Saloon. “At present, we’re known for premium, aged in house, hand cut steaks and fresh seafood, which arrives each morning,” says Marini. “We take pride in using the best available product with the majority of what we offer our guests made in house daily. The menu is creative and progressive for Rock Springs. Great food [that is] freshly prepared [along with] great service.”
Marini frequents Old Chicago when he’s craving a midday meal. He’s also a burger fan, highlighting Broadway Burger Station as one of his pit stops. When it is time for some mom and pop love, he hits Grubs Drive In, a local staple since 1946 where the burger is known as The Shamrock. What’s in a name? The two-patty burger with cheese got its name because the eatery opened around St. Patrick’s Day.
