I always recommend Big Bear Bistro to people who are looking for a quick casual lunch. I love their arugula and strawberry salad and the Pierson sandwich. Wish they had more outdoor seating!

My family and I stopped in Vale on our way from Glenwood Springs to Denver. We found this restaurant through trip advisor and we sure glad we did! It was delicious! I got the "Masterpiece" and I wanted more! Definitely glad we stopped in. If you're looking for a great sandwich this is the place!
