Does The Food in Wyoming Get a Bad Rap Nationally?
Thrillist ranked ever state by the quality of their food. Out of all the states, Wyoming did not do favorably. Their criticism has some valid points, but are they missing one critical factor?

Deep in the smog-filled, congested highways of the city, people are going back to the farm fresh, all natural diet. In the Cowboy State, we know that line or bullet catches the best food. You can't get more free range than right out of the river or field. Restaurants rarely can provide that quality and freshness. Not that Wyoming doesn't have good restaurants, but they do face challenges unique to this area.
Thrillist ranked Wyoming as the 8th worst in the nation. And for some restaurants, their point is spot on. They wrote:
But for a state where the cattle population more than doubles the humans, it’s alarming how many restaurants are content to thaw out Sysco patties and frozen steaks.
Ouch. However, it is a valid argument. In the least populous state in the country, restaurants have less potential customers. Other limiting factors are the lack of food distributors. In some towns, there are few options for restaurant vendors, and everyone gets the same food. It may create a level playing field, but it can limit the quality of the food supply.
