I am in love with Chef Tim Love! The food at Lonesome Dove absolutely blew me away. The menu was a great mix of hearty meats (like wagyu skirt steak and wild boar ribs) and unexpected proteins (kangaroo nachos and rabbit-rattlesnake sausage — which were really tasty). So interesting and creative! The white truffle macaroni and cheese was honestly one of the tastiest that I’ve ever eaten. It was made with an orzo-like pasta, which I’ve never had before in mac + cheese, the sauce was creamy yet light, and the truffle was subtle. Added bonus: we were seated in the back and got to watch the cowboy-hat wearing chefs cook in the partially open kitchen.
