VEGAS FOOD NERD’S TREK ACROSS AMERICA (Part 1 Cappy's)

VEGAS FOOD NERD’S TREK ACROSS AMERICA (Part 1 Cappy's)


First Stop Rawlings, Wyoming

By Vegas Food Nerd


It’s no secret that our country has a wide variety of foods to savor. Recently this nerd got to hit the road from Las Vegas to my home state of Michigan. We were delivering a recording console for one of our musician friends. Still, along the way, we had to eat, and for the next few columns I will document our gastronomic journey to the Midwest, and what we gnawed on while becoming serious road dogs along the way. 


The first stop from Las Vegas was Rawlins, Wyoming. It’s a tiny town, but a happening one. We got there on a Saturday night, and every place that we tried to dine after miles on the road was completely packed. One spot was closed due to a funeral for a local resident. The other had an hour wait.


Finally, we found a cozy family spot called Cappy’s. Here we entered this local family spot, and its red awning welcomed us, and thankfully we could get a table to feed our weary stomachs. It’s a simply decorated place with Wyoming cowboy decorations adorning their walls. We started out with a couple of Stella’s on tap, always a good starting point. We ordered their French dip, a salad, and their mushroom swiss burger with fries. We started things off with an order of their mozzarella sticks. Reliably decadent, they were just as good as the ones you get at Denny’s. Their side salad was a basic ceberg, cucumber, tomato with ranch. The French dip was okay, nothing earth-shattering but a welcome bite after twelve hours on the road. The mushroom burger was good, but not amazing. Cappy’s isn’t going to change the culinary but who cares. It’s a family-friendly, warm neighborhood joint with a pleasant clean atmosphere and a welcoming staff. If you make it to Rawlins’ little town, you won’t be sorry that you visited.
