Biga Pizza
241 W Main St
Missoula, MT
(406) 728-2579
Yelp: 4.5 Stars – 158 Reviews

Biga Pizza in Missoula serves flame-kissed, brick oven baked pizzas with a trifecta of perfection: delicious crust, flavorful sauce and creative toppings. You can’t get pizza like this anywhere else.

It’s hard to choose from their creative menu, so here’s three of the best: the Sweet Potato, Bacon & Maple Chipotle pizza, the Caramelized Goat pizza, or the Flathead Cherry pizza with housemade sausage, smoked gouda and cherry chutney.

The Burger Dive
114 N 27th St
Billings, MT
(406) 281-8292
Yelp: 4.5 – 88 Reviews

The Burger Dive has a full menu but what you need to know is this: here’s where you’ll find the juiciest, tastiest burgers and the most amazing garlic parmesan fries. This “dive” has a down-home feel, friendly service and isn’t really a dive at all, but a family-friendly diner.

The Juicy Lucy burger is a local favorite with molten cheese cooked inside the patty. Everything on the menu tastes better with one of their milkshakes or a root beer float.

    #7 SaketoMe Sushi is in Bigfork- not Whitefish! Check your facts- it’s incorrect in the paragraph.

  4. Roberta Mislevy

    Try the gluten free fish and chips at the Smokejumper Cafe at the West Yellowstone airport.

  5. Tom McClure

    Moroldo’s LLC Fine Italian Restaurant in Bigfork is hands down the best damn Italian in all of MT. Laura and Fabrizio are the owners and are wonderful people

  6. Katie Knaff

    Scottibellis in kalispell!!!

  7. Jade

    Howard’s Pizza in Great Falls. Legendary.

  8. Joe

    Fettys in Wisdom Montana

  9. Marty Ruffner

    the Loft in Hamilton has been closed a couple of times in the past 9 months, new management and changing cooks. Not very good at all. Don’t know where this “blow your taste buds off” comes from, it’s not accurate. Taste of Paris and Spice of Life are the standouts here in Hamilton!
