American Eats: Wyoming. Old Corral Hotel and Steakhouse
Centennial is a town so small that you can practically see the entire town from one end to the other.
Many towns in the west, during the 1800’s, had a hotels that served all the needs of the traveler. This included serving food so the folks staying at the hotel could get a meal.
As Centennial remains a small town, that tradition still continues at the Old Corral Hotel and Steakhouse.
We stayed at the hotel and there was, of course, nothing fancy about it. It’s hard to be fancy when you are 70 miles from the nearest town and the last town before a huge mountain pass. But the hotel was clean and had beds, and realistically that was all we really needed.
The steakhouse was part kitsch, but it was all steakhouse. The steaks were meaty and perfectly cooked to order. The sides were delicious and plentiful. And like any good western steakhouse, they had their own beer that was available on draft.
On a Sunday night in Centennial, there are few if any options for getting a meal that don’t involve driving all the way back to Laramie. But when you have a place that does things the right way like the Old Corral, none of that really matters.
