I’ve wanted to try Montana Mike’s for several years, and the timing was never right (hungry, around lunch or dinner, and near one of the locations). This evening, all three conditions were met! I went to the location in Emporia; it’s in a former Cracker Barrel building.
I got there around 1845, and left around 1740. The place wasn’t even 25% full.
Not a good start. I ordered iced tea, but it had the distinct flavor of coffee. I switched to DP; it was pretty good.
I ordered a large (“Mile High”) ribeye, medium. That’s exactly how it came. The steak was obviously fire-grilled; there were a couple char marks on the edges, but not too bad. The steak was great, decent flavor, and pretty tender. On a 1-to-10, give it a 9. For my single side, I got sauteed sliced mushrooms, and they were a great addition to the steak. It came with a large roll and butter, also good.
The meal came with a small garden salad. I got ranch, and some extra on the side, and it was really good.
Service was perfect. The check was $19.89. I’d eat at Montana Mike’s again any time.
