If it was not for the fact that we took a long stroll around Vail we might not have found this place. We ended being very happy we did! The combination of a great meal along with great service while sitting outside made our day. Our server (sorry, should have written his name down) took very good care of us,... More

One my favorite lunch restaurants in Vail. Great German beer and buffalo burgers, but much much more. Beet salad to die for and the corn chowder are spectacular. The good service and outdoor seating make for a repeatable experience.

Bridgett made our visit worth the trip. Best burger on the trip so far. The pastry was out standing. .

Located at the Sonnenalp Hotel, this outdoor patio is one of kind in the summer months. Aspen trees surround the quaint patio. The hamburgers were delicious (and I hardly ever eat red meat). Service was outstanding as well. I would eat here again and again.

While in Vail, I ate there three times!!! Bully Ranch was recommended to me by a local. I was craving a hamburger. I was not disappointed. They had a "build your own burger" selection with delicious choices. I chose Honey bacon, fried onion, I think a red pepper mayo or similar...and cheddar cheese. It was delish. Then I went back...

The truffle tots are AMAZING! You must try them. Some of the best tots I have ever had. The burger was massive, even by Texas standards, and good, but lacked some of the seasoning I am accustomed to. Overall a great meal, and I cannot wait to try to replicate the tots at home. Will go back here next time... More

This is our family's favorite spot when we go to Beaver Creek/Vail. You need to get the ribs here, also the fries are the best side. The staff is great, definitely gotta do it when you are coming off a long day on the mountain.

Always one of my favorites in Vail for just about anything from a burger to a salad! Service is always great and mudslides are the perfect way to end your ski day!!!

Although a slow mid-week during mud season, the menu was solid, the prices reasonable and the service was great. Can't go wrong, especially with kids.

I'm married to a hamburger affectionaido and she loved the Bully Bourbon Burger. At happy hour, the normally $16 burger was $13 and included a beer and fries. The burger is a large 8-ounce handmade angus patty, cooked to order, and topped with smoked cheddar cheese, apple wood smoked bacon, and sautéed onions in a Jim Beam demi glace. Delicious.... More
