Restaurants in Montana That Have Been on ‘Man Vs. Food’
One of my favorite shows to watch on the Travel Channel was Man Vs. Food and I was super bummed when the series ended, but it was probably for the best. Host Adam Richman was probably about to die from all the food challenges he was conquering (or sometimes not). But needless to say, he went to some very notable places, including Montana.
I’ve only seen the Montana episode of ‘Man Vs. Food’ once after it aired in September 2010, and although Richman didn’t make it to Missoula, Butte got a lot of great press for two restaurants.
Richman first stopped at the Freeway Tavern in the heart of Butte on Montana Street. Richman sampled Butte’s famous pork chop sandwich and the Tavern’s specialty, the “Wop Chop,” which had a thick, deep-fried pork chop with cheese, lettuce, tomato and mustard. Wow, I want one of those.
His last stop, where he also attempted the honorary ‘Man Vs. Food’ challenge, Richman took a hop, skip and a jump to Trimbo’s Pizza, also in Butte on Park Street.
Richman attempted the “Jumboli Challenge,” which is a five-pound stromboli “stuffed with mozzarella, salami, pepperoni, Italian sausage, capicola, meatballs, spinach,” and a whole lot more. Talk about a gut buster.
