“A wee bit pricey, but it's a pretty good sports bar!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2011

I recommend the chicken caesar wrap. I'm a former Spartan and I think the purple Spartan alcoholic drink is super sweet and silly and I'd totally order one again the next time I'm in there! "Come on you Spartans, come on and fight. Come on you Spartans, victory tonight."

“Excellent Food and Service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2011

My husband and I ate at Wallbangers for the first time and were very impressed with both the food and service. We approach "sports bars and grills" with caution but the comfortable environment here is suited for everyone. Despite the many TV's, it's not noisy. Our server was cheerful, helpful and attentive. We also received a visit from the owner which is impressive. Both of our chicken sandwiches were prepared to perfection and the accompanying fries were hot and crisp. We also had a side salad which contained a variety of vegies as well as cheese and croutons. The pineapple-mango dressing was very tasty. We'll defintely return on our next visit to Salida.

“This is a fun place to eat!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2011

We had spent the day at the Royal Gorge in Canyon City which is just about an hour from Salida, CO. We were tired and just wanted a light dinner, so we stopped in at Wallbangers. We had eaten there when it was called the Windmill and had loved the food back then. The place was charming with all the local sports decorations and professional sports decor. There are at least a dozen big screen televisons here and no matter where you are seated, you can see at least 2 with sports broadcasting. We were seated close to the bar and you could tell the locals really enjoy themselves there. The music was at the right level that you could enjoy and still carry on a conversation. Service was very friendly and attentive. The burger I had was cooked to perfection and everything was so fresh and tasty. My husband had the chicken fry which he said was absolutly delicious with a healthy portion of french fries. The food is very reasonable, with hearty portions. The waitress was chatting with us, and found out it was my birthday. The staff surprised me with a fudgy brownie dessert warmed up topped with ice cream, whip cream and a lit candle. They all sang Happy Birthday, which really made my day! This is a fun place to eat and the food is fantastic! We will be eating here the next time we are in Salida, CO!

This restaurant was the best of our vacation as we traveled across Colorado. The food, service, price, and atmosphere were all great! I can't wait to get back there!

“FABULOUS”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2011

We recently had the privlidge of eatiing at Wallbanger's. Greg Wall owner was wonderful. He picked our motorcycle group up from our motel,and took us to his establishment. (3-4 trips with his mini van) There were approx 25-30 members in our group. After a GREAT meal he took some of us ladies to Walmart. He then had another driver retrive us. They even escorted another group later. The food and atmosphere was outstanding. The price and portions were very adequete and reasonable. NO one from our group complained about Wallbangers. We ate out all 3 meals a day for 7 days. Wallbangers was on of the great meal experiences. THANKS GREG.....Great job and best wishes....
