Love a restaurant in Cheyenne, but live in Casper? Craving your favorite spot in Laramie, but stuck in Sheridan? We've been there, too.

Feel free to add to this list, but here's our pick for five Wyoming-based restaurants that need to have locations in every Wyoming city. Or maybe they could just follow us around wherever we go...

    Cowboy Donuts

    Rock Springs

    Tops the list for many as the best donut in the Cowboy State. Next time you're in Rock Springs, hit them up. But fair warning, you'll crave it again later.

    2 Doors Down


    One of the best burgers in the entire state. If you're from Cheyenne or have spent time their, you probably can identify your favorite burger on their vast menu right now. Their fries have been voted the best in the state by several media outlets.

    HQ BBQ


    Topping our list as one of the best and messiest BBQ spots in the state... okay, the world. If only we could get this brisket everywhere.

    Sweet Melissa


    Vegetarian options in Wyoming are few and far between, and frankly, it's fair because we're a meat-loving state. Whether you're a vegetarian or not, Sweet Melissa's in Laramie has something we can probably all agree on.

    Persephone Bakery


    We believe that breakfast is good any time of the day, and this tops the list for one of our favorite spots. The summer grain bowl or taleggio and honey toast are outstanding.
