Love Beau Jo's pizza. Probably because I am a Colorado native, but Beau Jo's pizza is the best pizza. In fact, it sets the bar for what pizza means to me. I love that they serve it with honey. I love the options. I recommend the mountain pie. I went to this Beau Jo's, the original, for my birthday this... More

Came on a week night around 9ish, I think, and we were happy to find anything open in this sleepy town. I think we were one of the last tables of the night. Our waiter was great and explained the whole menu to us. Pizza was great and the crust was perfectly done! Would recommend for at least one visit... More

Beau Jo's is unique. I'm a Chicago transplant having lived in the Rockies for thirteen years. Growing up on deep dish pizza I find Beau Jo's not a far cry. They essentially put your dinner on a pizza. They call it a mountain pie and it is. You can choose from a variety of combination toppings which come on your... More

My wife and I stopped here after a ski trip and fortunately beat the crowds. The pizza is decent but the salad bar is not. Service isn't anything special. If your legs are tired from skiing, you'll feel it when using the stairs up to the restrooms! My wife hadn't been here in a while and likely won't hurry back... More

We LOVED this pizza. We chose the crisp wheat crust and it was perfect. Our toppings included tomato/basil sauce, sautéd red onions, roasted garlic, Italian sausage, smoked cheese and broccoli pieces. The building is on top of a former gold mine and they preserved a shaft you can view, complete with basket that was formerly used to pull up the... More

During my visit to Denver, my sister took me here and I was very pleasantly surprised by the delicious pizza they made. I love pizza and will be very critical if it's not above par. We ordered a mountain pie (thicker crust) custom made with Italian sausage (crumbled) and mushrooms and it was really good. The mozzarella cheese is stretchy... More

My wife and I recently stopped here as we made our way through the mountains. She had never been here before so I was building Beau Jo's up to her. I think she came into the experience expecting amazing things, and she was not dissapointed. We both loved this place. The building was really cool and old, with lots of... More

Stopped off at Beau Jo's with some friends from our ascent of Mt. Beirstadt. This was a place recommended by others "on the mountain". After enjoying our meal -- we know why! The pizza here is awesome! and the beer was ICE cold!! Salad bar seemed legit. The place is LARGE and set up like an old-fashioned saloon. It does... More

I was recommended to visit this restaurant by a local while staying in Central City during Labor Day weekend. It was well worth every penny! Two of us split the Cajun 2 pounder and it did not disappoint. The twisty doughy crust was simply amazing especially topped with honey. This is a must do in the area. The restaurant is... More
