Featured on Food Network’s Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives, and including a game room for kids, 40 televisions for sports fans and an array of food options, “the Winder” — as it’s known among locals — is a sure hit for lunch, dinner or a snack. The extensive bar offers 30 beers on tap and a comprehensive menu that will give you so many choices that you may not be able to narrow them down. So don’t. Share a few plates of appetizers, such as pot stickers, hot wings or a Sidewinders pretzel. Then try a burger or perhaps a steak from the new custom steak menu. Options include tri-tip, New York or skirt steak and your choice of topping and sauce. If you are in the mood for pizza, opt to build your own whole or slices of pizza (the carne asada is to die for). Swing by during the big game, prepare for a party and pick your seats carefully based on your favorite team’s fans.

Entering its 30th year of business in Jackson Hole, Wyoming, the New York City Sub Shop, owned and operated by Bruce Tlougan, has consistently served delicious sandwiches since its founding in 1985. Originally located on Glenwood Street, in a small 110 square foot storefront, this sub shop could only fit three customers inside at a time. You frequently had to stand outside (even in a snowstorm!) to get your sub passed through a small pick-up window. It was strictly a take-out business. Bruce’s mission was to deliver to his customers a top quality product and quick service for an affordable price. In 2000, the sub shop moved down the road to 20 North Jackson Street, in the former Daylight Donuts building. This present location offers plenty of indoor seating and easy parking. Over the years, artist Greta Gretzinger has painted murals on every square inch of wall space, resulting in a colorful and whimsical journey of the sub shop over 30+ years. Bruce’s hard work and simple design led to a successful foundation to build upon as he expanded his horizons further west to Oregon.
