Authentic Chuckwagon Cookin'

Tuesday and Saturday nights all summer long. Watch us cook at 6, dinner at 6:30. Must reserve in advance.

An Unforgettable Wyoming Dining Experience

Join Cowboy Rich for an authentic Dutch oven dinner at the Buffalo Bill Center of the West. Get steak, biscuits, beans, salad, and a one-of-a-kind Dutch oven dessert like cobbler or cinnamon rolls — just like they made ’em out on the range. Families are welcome. This is unlike any dinner in Cody, Wyoming. No more than 20 people can dine each night which makes for an intimate and personalized experience.

The 2021 season has come to a close. We’ll see you next summer!
