Laramie recs?

Going to be spending a few days in Laramie. I've never been there before, so I'm wondering if anyone can offer a few recommendations for lunch and dinner -- open to anything, but will have a toddler in tow, so kid-friendly is a plus. Thanks!

  1. We have a few good places to eat here in Laramie. Definitely not gourmet or fine dining but still satisfying. I would say all are kid friendly.

    Thai: Anongs

    Vegetarian: Jeffries Bistro and Sweet Melissa's Cafe

    Mexican: Corona Village, Chelo's, & Bernie's-I like them all but each is different. Corona Village is more authentic mexican while Chelos & Bernie's is more local mexican with green chili, burritos, tacos, etc...I prefer Chelos-DH prefers Bernie's

    For sandwiches and stuff:
    Altitudes-they brew their own beer and offer tastings
    Lovejoys-similar to Altitudes and is owned by the same company, but is right by the railroad tracks, and train bridge-fun for the kids- food is better at Altitudes though
    Turtle Rock- good sandwichs and gelato- 2 locations

    Tommy Jacks- cajun/creole

    Cavalryman Steakhouse: just brought in a chef from Oregon to revamp the place. Haven't been in a long time, prices were getting too high especially for the quality of food being served. Not sure how it is since the new chef is here.

    Bailey's is like Blimpies, but they have a great deck to sit on.

    I would skip Chinese food in Laramie- we have 3 reasturants but none are very good.

    Of course we have a few chains too- McCallisters Deli actually has pretty good sandwichs, the rest I'd skip in favor of the local places.

    Let me know if you need addresses or directions. Hope you enjoy our town while you're here.
