That aroma you smell as you’re walking down Longview’s main street can only mean one thing. You’ve arrived at the mecca of cowboy snacks – the Longview Jerkey Shop. Who could guess that a chewy, sometimes salty, sweet, spicy or smoky concoction could have such a huge fan following? But it’s true, the third-generation Longview Jerkey is legendary. Not just locally, but from the Hollywood hills to the foothills of Alberta and beyond. Countless Hollywood stars, everyday cowboys, and road-trippers have made a pilgrimage to the tiny shop, established in 1978. It’s said that Clint Eastwood special ordered jerky to the set location while making his film Unforgiven nearby. A ringing endorsement if there ever was one.
