Best burger

I had a cheeseburger with homemade bbq sauce. Best burger I've had in a long time if ever comes with homemade French fries. Also had some green chili it was very good as well. If you are looking for good home cooked food this is the place to go

We lived in Summit Co. when it opened 25 years ago and it was great then as it is now returning as a "tourist" to join friends. Good rib-stickin food and great service. We had a party of 12 over 3 tables and were served in a timely fashion even though the place was packed. Chicken fried steak, corned beef... More

If you want a good, solid breakfast while visiting the Frisco/Silverthorne area, this is as good as it gets. This is a very small place, and we went on a week day, so we did not have a wait, but I hear that during peak season and weekends there can be quite a wait. I had their pork green chili... More

We visited this morning (a Sunday) and were seated in about 15mins. The food was good... it was packed and you could tell they are swamped on the weekends. They close at 2pm, on Sundays.

We pass through Silverthorne about once a month and we always stop to eat here. The food is always great and the service is fast and most important friendly. I have other family and friends hooked.

I love going to Mountain Lion Café for breakfast or lunch. The eggs benedict is my favorite! This is a great locally owned restaurant and a favorite for Summit County locals. But if you are traveling from out of town this, this is a great place to come across for breakfast or lunch.

We were commenting on what must be strict building codes when we came across the Mountain Lyon-not what we'd been seeing. It was a little loud but had an atmosphere of fun and friendliness. The food was good and plentiful...as good a french dip sandwich as ever I had said my husband.

Driving through Silverthorne, co it became clear based on the car load that Mtn Lion Cafe was worth consideration. Tasty food included a Phat Wrap and Southwestern chix sandwich. Homemade peach cobbler and cinnamon roll to go to finish it off. Facility is run down with carpet that may be from 1950. Worth the stop for lunch or bfast

The Mountain Lyon is about as down home a you can get for breakfast and lunch. Nothing fancy here, from the half dead hanging plants to the odd knick-knacks on the walls in the odd yellow and purple building in a gravel lot. . However, the food is fresh, wholesome, good and inexpensive. The wait staff is efficient and competent.... More
