Anyone visiting our part of Montana for the first time really must see Yellowstone National Park. There is nothing like it. And any meat-eater visiting Montana really must try Buffalo or Elk. It just doesn’t get much more “Montana” than that. Or if you plan it right and enter the park through Gardiner, MT, you can do both at the same time thanks to the Corral Drive In!
The Corral Drive In is a great little fast food restaurant serving all sorts of burgers and more. It is located right off of HWY 89 in Gardiner just about an hour from Livingston and right at the entrance to Yellowstone. There is outdoor and indoor seating and it is an easy stop to make.
There is even a Buffalo Hot Dog option for those of you who don’t like burgers! Or if you aren’t feeling daring they offer regular beef hamburger or chicken strips as well.
If you do get one of the burgers they are pretty substantial and should do a nice job of keeping you going through the long day ahead of you in the park! For other dining options in the Gardiner area check out the Gardiner Chamber of Commerce’s website.
