Fun place to eat and great food too!

Eaten at Handlebars several times when I do the Durango Silverton RR. The menu is so extensive I don't know how they do it. It's had the same owner for 25 years now and he's right on the floor greeting guests and actively participating in the management (with his sister and his mother). My favorite... read more

This place is fascinating because of all of the wall decor! We went for lunch, and the food was so tasty. My husband had a reuban sandwich with cowboy bean soup, and I had a hamburger with sweet potato fries. The only reason I am not giving this place five stars is that it is very crowded and the bathrooms... More

We were seated next to the open fireplace and it started to snow outside while we are our lunch. The atmosphere couldn't have been more perfect!

Went here for dinner on the recommendation of our hotel owner and were not disappointed. The restaurant is filled with all sorts of "junk" which gives it its great character. The people were very friendly and helpful and the food and drink very good. Certainly worth a visit.

This place is a hoot! The service is so good, so friendly and the food does not disappoint. Incredible atmosphere. The place itself is like a museum...lots to see while waiting for your food. Loved this place. The elk burger was so very good with sweet potato fries. Yummy!

Rode the train and didn't know what expect for restaurants in Silverton as probably tourist town so used TripAdvisor. Went into first recommended restaurant, left because slow, empty and lack of interest in us. Went to Handlebars and immediately greeted, seated and served in a packed house! Had fresh made soup and fries. Decor, friendliness and good (not excellent) food... More

This was our 3rd visit to Handlebars. I just wanted some ice cream. Handlebar Hollie talked me into her bread pudding with ice cream on the side. THANK YOU Handlebar Hollie. It was the best bread pudding I've ever tasted. Our visits to Silverton have all required a visit to Handlebars. Don't miss it!!

The day core is all about old Colorado back in the day. Family run restaurant three generations. Great food an atmosphere. If you do nothing else in Silverton must eat here.

This has been my favorite bar in Silverton for years. Just a fun place. Photos of past visitors cover the walls. Bring one of yourself. The owner, Ken, is very friendly. Get a burger, and a Tee Shirt.

One of my favorite places to eat in Silverton. This was recommended to me by one of the Conductors on the train. Food service during train time is prompt and on point. The over decor and theme mesh well together and definitely provide a great setting to eat in. The Elk Burger is absolutely wonderful. Elk is a lean meat,... More
