Was here on weeknight in November so it was too packed but I hear they do tricycle races around the place? Anywho, I enjoyed a burger with bacon and cheddar and it was delicious. The ordering process is different, but fun. I was hoping for tastier fries but honestly, I've never met a fry I DIDN'T like! Washed the burger... More

*WARNING* to customers: PLEASE DO NOT USE CASH the bartender was not honest with the change. For example, I gave a $20 cash for a beer that cost $5 and the bartender gave me $5 all $1 each and I gave a bartender $1 for a tip. Few minutes later, I looked at my wallet and realized I only had... More

Go in, find a seat, look at a menu and order/payfor your food at the window....We opted for a hickory burger and the wings with extra hot sauce (and they were hot!) plus some fries. All washed down with a few microbrew beers. Only 5 min walk from Boulder Outlook, Rodeway Inn and Best Western hotels.

Four of us went for a late lunch today, the hickory burger was pretty darn good (had bacon on it). Fries were yummy. Tried to sit outside but the combo of uncomfortable metal chairs and constant f-bombs from the next table, sent us back inside. It was too bad.

Been here several times, open the latest but a bit away from city center. Interesting décor, live music, friendly staff.

I was there last week for dinner with some friends. We wanted burgers and such, this place has no servers, you just order at a window, pay, they call your name and you pick up your food. How simple it that? Great if it goes well, not so great if any part of the formula goes awry. This is what... More

This place has been around for roughly 40 years. That's a long time for a restaurant/bar - especially in a competitive market like Boulder. Part of their secret of their success is that it is across the street from several University of Colorado dorms. The interior is filled with a quirky collection of antiques and junk. I'd love to know... More

This is a restaurant - not an attraction. It has been around since the mid-1970s. It is absolutely packed with an eclectic mix of antiques and memorabilia. (I'd love to know how the clean all that stuff.) It's 1 block from a set of dorms for the University of Colorado. Need I say more? It's a giant college bar. Food... More

Solid bar standbys and great choice of local brews/The environment is eclectic-just what you'd expect in a great college town.

Get the burger. Nice little Boulder bar. The beer is cold and the burgers are delicious. Located right off of campus so expect a lot of college kids.
