The food was OK, but nothing more. There are many better choices in Estes Park. We weren't impressed.

Danielle is super sweet! Best breakfasts in town! Open before the park opens so that is super convenient if you want to start your day early!

Good food and a fair price! The restaurant is on the edge of the downtown district, but would be easy to walk to after shopping the main shopping area.

The food was not very good. For the price we expected a bit more flavor. The only thing we liked is that it was close to our hotel. Next time we will get in our car and drive to find a bit to eat.

We've often driven by this place and noticed they had a smoker outside. Today, we decided to stop in and we're glad we did - very good pulled pork sandwich!

Ate here twice while in Estes Park. Huge servings. Delicious food. Fun atmosphere. We always eat here at least once when we visit. Breakfast, lunch or dinner are perfect times to enjoy the Big Horn. They do offer gluten free options, so I was able to have toast with my meals.

Stopped for lunch before heading into the park. Everything was wonderful. The smokehouse rib sandwich was very good. The coleslaw was homemade the old fashioned way and the fries appeared to be seasoned with sea salt. They also had potato soup with chicken and bacon that was yummy. This was a great stop.

The salad bar and the chicken strip appetizer was good. The shrimp platter was good for $15. However, I wanted to try the barbecue since that seemed to be a featured item. The barbecue was slathered in sauce. I asked for meat with the sauce on the side, but the waitress didn't seem to understand. You have to question the... More
