Butte's ethnic tradition is most evident in its food, with pasties (pronounced pass-tees, or pah-stees if you're British) ranking high on the list. If you've never tried one of these Cornish meat-filled pastries, you're in for a treat. Try Joe's Pasty Shop, 1641 Grand Ave. (tel. 406/723-9071), or Nancy's Pasty Shop, 2810 Pine St. (tel. 406/782-7410). Another local delicacy that should not be missed is a $3.25 breaded pork chop sandwich from Pork Chop John's, 8 W. Mercury St. (tel. 406/782-0812). This barebones, blue-collar diner is a Butte landmark, and the sandwiches, wrapped in wax paper and topped with pickles, mustard, and onions, are the best deal in town.
