The Alibi

Saturday, Larry and I decided to do one of our little drives. This time it took us up to Laramie, WY. We are only a little over an hour’s drive away from the Wyoming border and Cheyenne. Laramie isn’t too much further than that. Laramie is the 3 largest city in WY, with a population of only about 33,000 people. We had a fun day exploring the Laramie area.

While out and about, we were talking to some of the locals, and they recommended we try Alibi for lunch. Glad we did too. It was a delicious lunch, Alibi offers a wide selection of homemade goodies and baked goods everyday. That’s not something you see much of any more.

These are the homemade bakery selections and daily breads.

The bakery where all the magic is made.

Everything is homemade and fabulous. Alibi is famous for the baked goods and breads, but especially for their wood fired pizzas. We tried both the pizza and a strawberry cream dessert and thoroughly enjoyed both. They just hit the spot. We shared them both and it was just enough.

The wood-fired chicken pesto pizza for lunch,

cooked in this fancy and colorful wood-fired pizza oven,

and a strawberry cream pastry for dessert. YUMMY!

Alibi was a hoppin’ place. It was filled with people enjoying their lunch and each other’s company. Most people were inside around the bar area.

But it was such a gorgeous day outside, albeit a bit windy, Laramie is famous for it’s high winds, so Larry and I opted to dine outside in the large, grassy section. There are two firepits outside and plenty of tables. Alibi is even dog and pet friendly as long as they are outside. There is even a little stage area that I bet hosts a lot of local bands in the summer. It’s a fantastic, fun and comfortable environment for summer concerts.

There is an even a smoker that smokes all the locally grown meats Alibi uses for their delicious recipes.

Alibi is full of personality and down-home charm. It even has a funky side to it as well. I liked this fun little Alibi sign that was parked in their backyard.

Next time you are in Laramie, even if only for the day like we were, I highly recommend stopping in at Alibi for a good home baked lunch. I am so glad we ran into the people who referred us to Alibi, and that we stopped in for lunch. I wish to pass on the good tidings to all of you as well. I guarantee, you’re going to love it. And if you can, sit outside and enjoy their outside patio area.

Alibi is located at 404 South 4th Street, Laramie, WY 82070. You can call them at (307) 745-9738 or just stop in like we did. Either way, you will definitely be glad you did. You can also reach them online at

Have a great day and make everyday great. And if you stop in at Alibi, you’ll have some great tasty treats too. Stay safe and stay well. ‘Til next time.
