Cool little dive bar

Dark Horse is a favorite among graduate students in Boulder. The bar is close to campus, has a pretty great starving student deal (beer and burger and fries for $6), and provides plenty of themed nights. Trike night is on Tuesdays. Trivia is on Wednesday nights. Karaoke is big on Thursdays, so if... read more

I was first taken here by an older women who had nostalgic feeling for this place, where she and her husband used to come when they were in college. She was right, their burgers are the best and the beer is good and very cold

I have been going to this place since 1983. Where else can you get a double Stoli blueberry and soda for 4 bucks? Nowhere. How about ordering a medium rare burger and getting it perfectly cooked on a grilled (actually with butter on the grill) with mayo. Nowhere. It's actually too hard to believe this place exists. Just had their... More

This is a funky and fun place to go for a good burger & beer, and very convenient location when visiting the University of Colorado Boulder campus - a popular place for the college crowd too, which makes it fun to visit and interact with the students. You'll be astounded by all of the antiques and such that are hanging... More

The family and I visited the Dark Horse One Sunday afternoon for dinner and found the burgers to be good; The atmosphere interesting. We learned it is a Boulder local attraction.

BEST bartenders in Boulder! Funky decor, nice crowd, great prices & yummy food. Everyone raves about the burgers, and they are delish, but the kitchen puts out the best salad ever! For under 8$ you will get a fresh salad piled with meats, cheeses & loads of veggies. Plan on sharing this with others or taking a box home!

My son who lives here said this is the best hamburgers in town. I disagree. The best in the US. I had the egg & ham, out of this world. They all sounded good. Will make sure we stop every time we are in the area.

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.
