Best place in Silverton, Best Peach Cobbler ever found

If we find ourselves in Silverton around meal times Handlebars is the only place we will eat. I've tried other restaraunts in town but none compare. They have delicious buffalo burgers, homemade soup (a favorite) and always, always save room for the peach cobbler! If it's your birthday they will... read more

We had the Buffalo burgers. It was packed from people coming up on the train so be prepared to wait a bit for lunch. The wait staff were friendly and obliged us by taking our picture. The bread pudding was great but for $12 it should be. It was large so we shared it.

First time for myself, but my husband and I drove our Victory up the mountain from Ignacio, CO to Silverton for a much needed rest from work. The drive to and from is one gorgeous ride. As we meandered around the roads it seemed like the blue sky was meeting the breathtaking horizon. When the wind caught the leaves from... More

A very busy place, that understands you can't miss the train. We had a very good lunch here. My Wife had a very fresh Fish 'n Chips and I had a Cheeseburger that was fresh, tasty and could have fed two people. The Blueberry Wheat Beer was very tasty with only subtle notes of Blue Berry. Well done! Cheers!

We arrived in Silverton around 2:00 p.m. to find most of the businesses already closed. A local suggested Handlebars Restaurant & Saloon. Being the only customers, service was great and our food came fast. We ordered one of the wood fired pizzas on the menu and two margaritas. UNBELIEVABLE MARGARITAS!!! As a former bartender I am very picky about margaritas... More

We ate here for lunch after taking the train from Durango. Service was very prompt -- probably to accommodate the tourists on train or bus schedules. Enjoyed the western memorabilia, animal trophies and a big fireplace. We ordered the elk burger with fries, and chicken pot pie with salad and everything was delicious. If we had been staying overnight in... More

We had some friends visiting, so we drove from Durango to Silverton to see the color of the trees. We ate lunch (as we always do when we're up there) in Handlebars. We love their food and we always have to share their bread pudding. It is to die for!!

One of the best places in Silverton. Prime rib is just about perfect. Food and atmosphere is great. Staff is on their game and account for 1/2 of the Handlebars experience. Thanks for a great time!

I stop by here every time I go to Silverton. Love the atmosphere and the service. Some of the food is really good; some is ok. Nothing is terrible. Fantastic bread pudding. Not a fan of the prime rib. Elk burgers are terrific.
