If you like aviation entertainment and history with your meals, check out Driggs, Idaho, next time you head to Jackson Hole or just happen to be in the Yellowstone and Grand Teton area.
Aviation entertainment comes from two directions. Through a door just off the restaurant area is a warbird museum at Driggs-Reed Memorial Airport (DIJ), and it really isn’t a museum at all. It’s where a half-dozen of the airport’s 15 to 20 warbirds park when they are not flying. They fly often.
Dr. Richard Sugden, owner of many of the warbirds—not to mention the FBO—offers entrées in the evening of bacon-wrapped beef tenderloin, Jamaican jerk pork, chicken Marsala, duck breast, ribeye steak with garlic, and even a buffalo burger. Lunch is sandwich-oriented, with choices of Reuben, chicken, turkey, fish and chips, and, of course, regular burgers and buffalo burgers. The café is well known for salads.
This summer the Warbirds Café hours are Sunday 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., and Tuesday through Saturday 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. There is live entertainment most Friday nights.
