The winning letter in The Billings Gazettes road-food contest came from Sherry Farley, of Hardin. Heres what she had to say about her favorite spot.
Springcreek Bar & Cafe
Address: Sarpy Creek Road, 28 miles east of Hardin
Owners: Doran and Sandy Hewitt
Thirty miles east of Hardin, Mont., on the Sarpy road, in the middle of nowhere, except beautiful ranch country with ponderosa pines, rolling hills and fat cattle, sits Spring Creek Bar & Cafe.
Its friendly owners, Dorin and Sandy Hewett, retirees from Colstrip, and their children own this food, drink and community meeting place. A better meal you cant find, and on special holidays you need reservations to dine.
The steaks are wonderful but the guys favor the chicken-fried steak, which literally covers your plate, and, of course, all of the trimmings go with these fine meals.
A steady clientele from Billings, Colstrip, Forsyth, Hardin and surrounding areas makes this a busy place indeed. This is our favorite place to dine, and it is certainly worth bragging about.
Sherry Farley, of Hardin
