We visited Boulder a few weeks ago and West End Tavern was suggested to us by a friend's sister who lives in Boulder. We always listen to the local's suggestions and I'm glad we did. We have a 2 year old and we're always looking for places to eat good food but also not feel uncomfortable with an outspoken toddler.... More

I hate to give any negative feedback but this place has been an institution and a once a month or more spot for me for the last 5 years. It has always had that laid back Boulder feel with a heavy foodie influence. It's a place I always bring out of town fiends for a classic Colorado experience. They have... More

We had the Chicken Slider, Chicken fried crispy but not greasy. Sauce was great. The ribs are very good. Preparation was smoked with a... More

The only good thing about this meal was the beer! The worst ribs I've ever had. My son had a burger & it was small & not very good.

West End has a good menu, value not the best, atmosphere very good. Has changed its menu as of last Spring, not as much Bar BQ as before, it was well known for that in Boulder. Prices can be high for its food, and all of their drafts cheat with a 14 oz serving, while charging a premier price for... More

Plus good customer service and solid comfort food! Love the West End Tav for lunch and happy hour. When it's cold outside this place hits the spot. Just a cozy, home-town place that is a good spot for out of town visitors as well.

Great beer selections and the BBQ is very good. The menu is most comfort food, which is what I was looking for. The service was very good and the atmosphere excellent.

The West End offers a very interesting atmosphere and well-trained staff serving an interesting menu with a well-stocked bar. We were there for a private party that took the upper level with the great view. We sampled the deviled eggs (yum!), mac & cheese (okay), beef brisket (okay), ribs (yum!), chicken sausage (yum!) and several other items. The only downside... More

Cool atmosphere, lots of microbrews and barbecue make this a great place for comfort food and drink. The innovative barbecue sauce, with stuff like figs makes it fit for foodies, too.
