Great places in Uptown Butte to grab a bite to eat before kickoff
Football season is here and you find yourself in Butte for the big game, you're going to find yourself Uptown. Looking for a great place for a bite to eat or a cold beverage before kickoff? Here are a few of the locals favorites here in the Mining City.
JOHN'S ON MERCURY
A Butte staple, the Uptown Pork Chop John's is less than 2 blocks from the gates of Naranche Stadium. Burgers, dogs and, of course, John's Original Pork Chop Sandwiches are always a great way to start the game. Try a chop, loaded-deluxe plus ham, egg and cheese. You're welcome.
UPTOWN DAIRY QUEEN
Just a block east of Pork Chop John's on Mercury, the Uptown Dairy Queen is a great place to go if you're travelling with young children. Their menu offers the same DQ favorites you've become accustomed to, plus a Blizzard hits the spot no matter who's playing.
M&M CIGAR STORE
Although in a new location after the fire of a few years ago, the M&M still serves the food that made it famous to begin with. Just a few blocks up from Naranche Stadium on Main, try one of their famous omelets, a Whatzit or their legendary Ground Round Cheese D. You'll thank me later.
METALS SPORTS BAR AND GRILL
On the corner of Park and Main, Metals Sports Bar and Grill is a great place for a sit down meal but also perfect for a quick toddy and a sampler platter. Metals serves everything from salads and sandwiches to entrees and has on their payroll the very talented Chef T who is known for unique and delicious creations, particularly on gameday.
Technically Sparky's II since the original is down the road in Dillon. But their incredible food and decor have made them a Butte favorite as well. Their barbecue dishes are worth the drive and you won't find a better decorated restaurant in Southwest Montana.
PITA PIT/TACO DEL SOL
Located in the historic Stephens Block on the corner of Park and Montana, Pita Pit and Taco del Sol are share a building and a reputation for quality. Pita Pit is a fresh, healthy and delicious choice serving hearty pitas and delicious wraps while Taco del Sol has some of the most intriguing and tasty Mexican food in town.
