Spectacular Pizza

This place is a 'must-go'. The pizza was fantastic. We had a Detroit style pizza, with pepperoni, garlic, mozzarella, ricotta. Incredible. Seriously one of the best pizzas that we have tried in a long time. Great service with a smile, and great Gin & Tonics too. Thanks, Brown Dog! We are... read more

Hard not to like ANY pizza, but the Brown Dog is special. Have to admit I'd never had "Detroit" pizza before but their signature "313" pizza is to die for! Check out the line waiting to get in most afternoons and evenings and you'll have an idea how popular the place is - sandwiches, pizzas and a nice bar make... More

On the central street in Telluride, this cramped little spot has some of the best pizza in Colorado. Skip the appetizers (although the homemade chips are pretty good) and go straight for the Detroit style pizza. While a bit thicker than New York pies, somehow the Brown Dog creates an incredibly light crust that doesn't leave the diner leaden and... More

Brown Dog Pizza is like nothing you have experienced. Besides American style pizza they offer Detroit style pizza,a square deep dish pizza made with only the finest ingredients like San Marzano tomatoes. This pizza has won many awards.The garlic knots and salads are all fresh and delicious. Can't wait to come back!

My partner and I really enjoyed dinner here the other night. We ate at some other restaurants in town, and this pizza is the best! We got the margherita napoleana pizza, which had lots of basil, cherry tomatoes, red sauce and cheese. The crust was nice and thick (I hate flat bread style crust) and the meal was great. We...

Spent a day in telluride. I was told by numerous people to eat at brown dog. Had one of their award-winning pizzas and it blew me away. Would give it 100 stars if I could! Friendly local atmosphere.

Didn't know where to stop for lunch in Telluride as I hadn't been there in years. Wasn't really coming up with anything on the iPhone, so we went with the old tried and true way of telling which place was best... the place that was most packed with people! And, Brown Dog was it. Seems to cater to locals, too.... More

This is a favorite locals hangout and the owner's brown Lab was inspiration for the name. I've had several dishes here and they're always good and plentiful. Great place to get pizza or sandwiches, anything on the menu, basically!

Great menu selection - and not just pizza. The choice of ales was also quite impressive. Our selection of a Buffalo Chicken Pizza was bit of a mistake however - even without pizza sauce it turned out to be a bit soupy.

brown dog has authentic east side of detroit square pizza that is as good as the original. Besides the UM garb and lack of MSU stuff, this is a great restaurant. A must visit on every trip to telluride
