Some friends and I ate there for lunch on a Sunday when in town for a wedding. Food was pretty decent and hit the spot for s good burger. We ordered the pepper poppers for an appetizer creamy with a little bit of spiciness. As an entree I was most intrigued by the big game burgers so I went for... More

We stopped here to grab a burger one day for lunch. I had a soup and half sandwich and my husband had a burger. The food came out and was overall pretty good but the portions were so small! The 1/2 Ruben that came with my meal had a very small amount of meat. What was there was pretty tasty.... More

We stopped in for a late lunch in Estes at this location and while initially we were the only ones in the back seating area the place filled quickly. After selecting a great specialty cocktail (the pear martini-fabulous) I chose one of the burgers and had the choice of type meat--at the bartender's suggestion I tried yak and was treated... More

We sat at the bar area, which is pretty cool. I had a buffalo burger which I could tell was pre- made... It wasn't very thick and was perfectly circular. It was good but not as juicy as I would have hoped. Not the best but not the worst.

The Yak Burger was awesome . . . order it medium rare. I had the mushroom and Colby jack cheese and they must have cooked the shrooms with the burger - yum! My wife had a Yak burger as well, but different style and loved it also. Great atmosphere as well . . . look around while you are there.

In the off season, this is a great place to grab a good burger. The staff are very friendly and usually pretty prompt. The atmosphere is nice, not the typical tourist spot. We stop here most the time going through town and haven't been disappointed yet.

food was ok, clean restaurant but the prices were very high. You must be willing to pay extra due to it being a tourist town.

We ordered an appetizer and our drinks. The appetizer came out without the drinks (not even water). It was the homemade chips, salsa and guacamole. The chips were good, the salsa average but the guac was very spicy. We had no water, I stood up to get the servers attention, she ignored me. She then came over to help the... More
