With its brick and log-cabin facades and rustic Western decor, Mackenzie River Pizza  restaurants project an image of Big Sky Country where the concept started. The chain has since expanded to Idaho, Washington, North Dakota and Indiana, and it’s grown beyond gourmet pizzas—which include both create-your-own and house specials. Now pastas, sandwiches and pub classics are on the bill of fare. Average check is $30, on par with similar casual-dining concepts.
