OrangeTV: A Glorious Road Trip to Libby

Back on the road, our thirst and cottonmouth became a primary issue, so we decided to cruise over to Libby for a bite. A big ‘70s sign that said “Antlers Restaurant” caught our attention. the menu was huge and colorful, varied and vivid, like Denny’s. Is “Antlers” a chain or do they just have a really well-designed menu? We begged the waitress for a pitcher of water, and it was the best water we’d ever tasted in our entire lives. I was so parched, I couldn’t get enough. I ordered a burger with swiss cheese and tomato on sourdough bread, and it was absolutely one of the most perfect creations I’d ever had the pleasure of enjoying. Seriously, I’d drive all the way to Libby again just for one of these. The fries were crisp and plentiful, hell, even the dill pickle spear was exceedingly green and crisp. Q agreed his Bacon Burger was worth getting moisty-eyed about. Maybe Montana cows just taste better, I don’t know — OrangeTV/Making Flippy Floppy.

Question: What’s your idea of a perfect Inland Northwest day trip?
