This is THE spot to go for very reasonably price and delicious breakfast or lunch with good sized portions.....and also such a friendly owner and staff. We've never been disappointed....only in one of the high season months did we have to wait but always well worth it....the place to eat in Fairplay for breakfast or lunch.

My husband and I drove through Fairplay last July, and happened on the local art fair. The restaurants were all crowded, but we were really hungry, so stopped anyway. There was a long line at the Brown Burro, but because we were willing to share a table with -- gasp! -- strangers, we got in within 10 minutes. Had I... More

Fun little sit down restaurant. A little quirky, but good food. We ordered the Mexican hamburger which was delicious, but more like a smothered burrito than a hamburger. Ask for extra salsa and sour cream!

We just stopped at Brown Burro because it looked like a "local" place that might be good, and it was better than good. The red chili, enchiladas and nachos that our group had were all excellent. We talked to some of the other patrons and got many suggestions about other menu choices that were recommended. If we ever get within... More

I stopped by later in the morning, so I had my choice of tables. I had standard breakfast fare- egg, bacon, pancakes. Eggs were cooked perfectly as was the rest of the meal. Service was prompt and even the owner stopped by to offer a coffee refill. I ended up eating here twice during the week I was in town.... More

We spent our Saturday morning up in the mountains 4-wheeling and worked up quite the appetite. When we came back into Fairplay, we made a stop at the local automotive store. While checking out, we asked where the locals go for lunch and were told either the Brown Burro or the Bowling Alley. We went to the Brown Burro and... More

After a wonderful week vacation exploring the Gunnison National Forest Region, returning to Denver and then "back East" we stopped at a Fairplay, CO for a break. Fortunately, fate brought us to the "Brown Buro Cafe". Perfect timing to arrive at 1:30 PM on a Saturday, for they close at 2:00 PM. None-the-less, a line contined. Three homemade Beef Taco... More

This is a unique little place and the service was very good but a bit pricey! A burrito, cup of soup and a cheese quesadilla with 2 sodas $30.
