Best burgers and fries in Boulder

We were in love from then on! In addition to the excellent fries, we all enjoyed the burgers that were perfectly prepared... read more

This was the original no smoking bar and resturant in Boulder. Some very good unique and tasty beers. Food is good bar food. Usually very busy and you may be standing for awhile.

Overall I was pleased with the food and the beer. The waitress was great too. The portions are quite large so be prepared. Several good options for vegans. I tasted several of the beers before deciding on a dark porter. Very yummy. Ambiance is post-hippie.

This is very busy and small place, but the beer and food are excellent! The lime and cilantro hummus was awesome! This is some of the best of beers. The staff is super friendly and knowledgeable about the food and beer menu. Don't hesitate! Just go!

Mountain Sun is a relaxed, comfortable local hangout with great food and beer. I sampled a few of their beers and enjoyed all of them. The bison burger was excellent and not a bad price. For those that rarely carry cash, stop at the ATM first - no credit cards accepted. If the weather is nice, sit outside and enjoy!

After hiking up to the gorgeous view from Royal Arch we spoke to a local couple who recommend stopping in the Mountain Sun. Besides being fast, friendly and extremely helpful the staff will bring a sampler of any brew you may be interested in. We had the chicken nachos and even after the arduous hike and it being after 3:00... More

This is the local pub. Filled with college students, loud, crowded, fun, awesome. We ate here one night while trying to save some money and we did. KEEP IN MIND, THIS IS CASH OR CHECK ONLY but they do have an ATM in the back. The beer was good and food was great. We both split a small order of... More

What a great little local place to unwind with a beer and some cheap eats. First stop after long flight and it was just what 2 wary travelers needed. Great beer from a local brewery and some tasty eats.
