    Walk in the basically unmarked door between Higgins Alley and Break Espreso and enter into the (sometimes a little smoky) world of Charlie B's. The best part of this bar is the collection of old b&w photographs hanging on every spare space on the walls. The featured folks are some famous and some not-so famous Missoulians from a bygone era (the 60s? 70s?), who will smile down on you while you enjoy a cheap pitcher of PBR or a local brew (a lot of people like Moose Drool, but I'm more of a Summer Honey/Beltian White kind of girl...though Beltian White travels about 200 miles from Belt, MT).

    If you're into this sort of thing, Esquire magazine voted it one of the best bars in America, saying, "Without question the best place in the country to find a beautiful woman who can gut her own trout."

    The kinda-Cajun Dinosaur Café runs out of a window in the back of the bar and offers étoufeés, gumbo, alligator po' boys, jambalaya and the like, but for milder tastes, they also serve excellent soup, pulled pork sandwiches, dirty rice, and even cheap steaks.
