Tiny diner, attractive considering it's age. They have breakfast and Hot Dogs and Beer. It seems popular. Started to fill up while we were there. Paper plates are ok, we just wanted a friendly local stop that was different! 🌭 and 🍺

Libby's is a great local place to enjoy a quick snack or lunch. You get the feel of the everyday life and the local regulars who eat here frequently. Good Burgers and "Texas Wieners".

Libby's is the last of the Paterson Hot dog restaurants. It's not far from the Great Falls National Park. So after having Texas wiener you can experience history buy visiting the falls

Libby's is a classic joint that has been around for over 80 years. The food is pretty standard. They are famous for their Texas Weiner, but they also offer lots of burgers and sandwiches, along with popular daily specials. This is a really friendly neighborhood...More
