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

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.

Hidden behind a strip mall, this place is amazing. We stumbled upon it by accident and were very glad we did. The decor is amazing - movie props and turn-of-the-last-century antiques hang from every inch of the ceiling and every wall. It's no-frills -- you order your food from the kitchen window and they announce your name (loudly) when it's... More

Burger and wings. What a treat they are. One of the best burgers in my life hands down. If you want to laugh, have someone take a few shots then ask them to go to the bathroom and watch what they do. You will know when you get there.

This bar has been operating for more than thirty years. Friendly people, now more family oriented. The happy hour works great to have a drink. Hamburgers are ok, but nothing to die for. Nice atmosphere.

No table service - order at a food window and they call your name. Beers were reasonably priced. The first time I ordered a drink it was super easy & fast. Second time, from different guy, took forever because he was just yapping with someone. I waited for about 5 minutes before a third guy finally helped me. Bar tender... More

I had lunch here on a Saturday on the recommendation of my son who lives in Boulder. This is not the place to go if you want to be pampered. It is a college hangout bar that's only about a block from the CU dorms. You stand in line, in a limited space, to place your order. Your name is... More

This place is definitely very unique. The building itself reminds you of an old western bar and restaurant. The decorations are all over the place - you just have to go to see it for yourself. It's not just a bar - there are actual table where you can sit down and eat, and the food isn't too bad. Definitely... More

We went here on Christmas eve for a nice lunch. I was a little hesitant about taking my 5 year old daughter to a bar. However this place was great. The place is pretty big. They have several pool tables, video games and steel tip dart boards. There is several burgers and sandwiches to chose. I ordered the Chipotle burger.... More
