Staggering Ox Down

Not too suprised — the Staggering Ox in Great Falls has closed. My three experiences there were pretty bad, and that location just doesn’t work; a lot of comments over at the KRTV Facebook page mentioned the poor location — which has been home to I think four restaurants in recent years. Lots of people really seem to like the Ox in Helena and Missoula, but the GF location just couldn’t make it work.

RIP: La Pastada shut down, and a daycare facility now occupies the space. The…


Eatery Update!

It’s at the intersection of 10th Avenue South and 26th Street, in the same building as the San Remo coffee shop. Hope they kept the funky atmosphere of the original location! Some things for you to remember, if…
