The Big Horn features excellent breakfast offerings. But, it's also a good, reasonable choice for lunch and dinner. You will love the aroma from the smoker which they use to cook their meats and ribs. The owners and staff are very friendly. You will want to eat at the Big Horn Restaurant while in Estes Park.

For an older cafe setting the food was very good and our waitress was very attentive. If you go away hungry it's your own fault!

I went to this place twice, once for dinner and next day we went back for lunch (but tripadv does not allow me to select two choice below the review). The stuff was friendly and food was good.

We stopped in for breakfast, as recommended by my mom. A lot of locals eat here, and I can see why. Excellent, big meals, and a great price. Very good wait staff, that kept our coffee full at all times. This will be my go-to breakfast place when I'm in Estes!

Took my 7 year old niece here for breakfast, her order was so huge. She said next time "let's get half of a half order". Freindly servers, clean! We've been back again again!

I LOVE their Eggs Benedict!!! We always eat breakfast the BH. We just ate there this weekend and the Hollandaise sauce was AMAZING (you wouldn't believe how many people don't know how to make it right or use a mix)!! I like my bacon just this side of burnt. You wouldn't believe how often I ask restaurants to make it... More

Great variety on menu for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Friendly staff, locally family owned. My favorite is Pancakes/blueberry for breakfast! Prices are good. Lots of seating. Good for families with kids too.
