Back when it opened in the 1950s, men would ride horses up to the bar of the Pioneer Saloon, or “Pio,” as it’s known locally. Today, people mostly walk up to order a signature Pio margarita and mingle with other patrons just starting their night. 

A go-to for anyone looking for a simple meal of steak and potatoes, the Pio menu has never changed, and the potatoes are the size of your face. The walls are lined with relics of the west, including a huge stuffed buffalo head. Enjoy a cocktail and free chips and salsa in the bar area while you wait for your table in the dining room. Order the prime rib and the local-favorite “Jim Spud,” a baked potato with teriyaki beef, potato toppings, and cheese. If you’re lucky enough to visit in November, check out the “Pio Days” event, when menu prices go back to what they were in 1972 for a weekend.
