“Bad service, So So food”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2013

I have visited this place twice over the last 9 months. The first was back in June of 2012. We came up to Cripple Creek to ride the train, and they recommended Ralfs. The food was okay, but our waitress was bad. The lace is fairly large, but apparently only had 1 waitress on duty, and she appeared to be new. She forgot several things on our order, offered us refills on our tea, but never brought it. We were only 1 of about 5 tables in the place, so it's not like it was over packed. The food however was edible, and when i was in town this last weekend for the Ice Festival, I decided to try it again, mostly because everyplace in town was packed, with an hour plus waiting list. We walked in, and it too was packed, and we were greeted with a sign that says "seat your self" Huh? We saw a table with a group of 6 that was finishing up, so we hung back not wanting to act like vulture waiting to devour a road kill. However, our politeness bit us in the butt, as when one gentleman stood up to put on his coat, a rather rude gentle standing behind us moved in and sat at the table before the other group was even up. What type of management does a seat your self when there is 1 hour plus wait everywhere else in town? Well, it caused us to leave and head back down the road (a 30 minute drive to the next sign of life) but we did, and did not return back to cripple creek, but instead spent my money in Woodland Park. Cripple Creek is a fine town, and I was not upset by the long waits, as that was to be expected, but the seat yourself when you are packed and a line wating to get in is just poor management.

“The tastiest pizza, the most enjoyable place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2013 via mobile

Go there and try the tastiest pizza of Cripple Creek. You are going to have lots of fun with the coolest games like pool table, golf, arcades.... no way to have that much of fun, with the coldest beer, with the most enjoyable company, anywhere else.

“Great atmosphere, great food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 8, 2012 via mobile

We ventured into this place to watch a football game and got a little hungry so we tried the green chili nachos. The nachos were absolutely amazing and the green chili they were topped with was the best. Highly recommend this place and Heidi was a wonderful bartender who wa very attentive to all of us!

We were told they had the best pizza in Colorado and we were told right. My girl friend and I loved it.
