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

I have never tried a "tater tot" before (I think they must be an American invention), but these things are spectacular. The Definitive Burger was also fabulous. It was super busy (Saturday during GoPro Games) so the service was slow. The portions were huge - try sharing.

Went to Bully Ranch during 2014 Go Pro Mountain Games. Took a while for our server, Thomas, to get to us even though there were only 4 other tables (who were all eating already). Thomas was training a younger waitress, and I noticed that he seemed to be putting his hands on her a lot (touching shoulders to guide her... More
