"Remember that time is money"- Benjamin Franklin

These days it seems like everyone is going 100 miles per hour and we want everything instantly. It doesn't always work that way. There are times we have to wait, and we have to be patient. If most people are like me, they don't like to stand in line anywhere. When I am heading out to pick up lunch, a lot of time I will head to the shortest drive-thru line I can find. If you are heading out to lunch, here is my secret to the best time in Missoula for the shortest lines.

One of the Best Steakhouses in the U.S. is in Montana and Has Lines

There are some great and popular restaurants in Western Montana and many of them don't take reservations. One of them has been voted as one of the best steakhouses in the nation, Lolo Creek Steakhouse.  Without reservations that may mean there will be lines. Sometimes it is worth it to wait, and sometimes it's not. What's a Missoula restaurant that, for you, is worth a line and the wait ?

Not Everyone Will Stand in Line in Missoula

There are people that, no matter how good the food is, it isn't worth the wait. One of the more popular responses was Paul's Pancake Parlor. There are those that would like to see Paul's expand, so there wouldn't be as many lines quite as often. Would that change what so many people love about Paul's? I don't think anyone can answer that question right now. One of the many positives about the responses was that a majority of people wouldn't mind standing in line for great local food from great Missoula restaurants.
