Spring Break Dinner

Excellent pizza (especially Detroit style)! The service was excellent on both of our visits. It is very busy and does not take reservations so go early after a big day of outdoor activities.

The coolest place for expatriates from Detroit's east side to relive the glory days is Brown Dog Pizza in downtown Telluride. My first reaction to the place was to text a picture of the menu which featured a tribute to the founding father of Detroit style pizza, Buddy's Pizza, to friends and family from the area. The inside of Brown... More

Go for the Detroit crust, it's their specialty. Thin crust was good too but cooked too long. Great beer selection. Right on the main Street.

The Detroit style pizza we had was fantastic. I am a fan of deep dish with a bit of a crunch, and they killed it. The kids menu has a make your own where they bring the raw dough, sauce and cheese plus any other topping. They make the raw pizza and off to the fire!! Good local vibe.

Ok, so I live with pizzaholics, and every time we come to Telluride, this place is a must at least once. We just recently ate here and my husband could not stop telling me how perfect the Detroit pizza tastes. I agree, I am not the biggest pizza eater, but this stuff is wonderful! We love Brown Dog!

Wandered into the Brown Dog on a busy day and decided to try the Detroit Pizza and liked it. The pizza/sports bar theme is especially attractive for those who have ever sang "Hail to the Victor". The bar area was full and the restaurant very lively. It is informal/family friendly and our waitress, who was very busy took the time... More

We ate at Brown Dog Pizza both nights in Telluride because we enjoyed it so much the first night. There are two levels and we liked sitting upstairs where we could look down at the bar and several TVs which had various sport networks on. You could also see out on the main street depending on how close to the... More

Casual atmosphere, great sports bar with big TV s. Really tasty food, wings, pizza, burgers, salads etc. deep dish pizza is good but too much bread for me. I LOVE their regular pizza, variety of fresh toppings and lots of tasty cheese. It gets busy and there is often a wait but it is worth it!

Consider the Brooklyn Bridge pizza. Traditional but unique. Service was good on a fairly busy evening.

Every time we are in Telluride, we eat here. The food is great and the Detroit pizza was great! We ended up eating here three times on our last trip. Great variety and great tasting food.
