“Best margaritas and food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2013 via mobile

I go to the ditch a lot! its all homemade with the best green chili ever! Its a NEW MEXICAN style food, the parks fries are amazing. the margaritas are award winning, all fresh squeezed and every strong!! It gets crazy busy there but even on their menu it says its NOT FAST FOOD, so don't get mad when you have to wait a bit longer. the stafc is so friendly and the atmosphere is definitely down to earth where everyone talks to everyone!! definitely stop by the ditch its the best!!!

“Great food, great drinks for parents and great kid's menu for our kids”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2013

Great! The service was great and all 3 of our boys( 7,7, and 9) were happy with their kid's menu, and regular menu, selections. Spicy tamales and great adult beverages- at great prices. We will definitely add The Ditch to our Winter Park 'must visit' list.

“Low price, low quality”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2013 via mobile

Not quite sure what the entrance is and you don't get noticed at either. The servers are too busy with gossiping about their own lives at the bar that they forget about their tables. My water wasn't refilled once. The atmosphere feels like a bad clique from high school. If you aren't one of their selected ones, you won't get any service! Of course you can't say anything because the music is so loud, you can't hear yourself think.
Their menu highlights how amazing their green chili is, but I have bought better in a can at Safeway! The beef in the burrito was tasteless with a terrible texture. Go to the store and make your own burrito. It will be better experience all around!

“Not Really a Ditch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2013

this brother/sister operation is the "Real Deal". Everything from scratch, jumbo portions and fair prices make this a MUST STOP. From the ditch-burger to great mexican food, friendly staff and top shelf bar, my favorite place in Grand County

“Good food service left a bit to be desired”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 6, 2013

Had the Sean Special burger. Not huge but just what we wanted. Service was a bit lax, we had to find our own menus and then get the servers attention, margarita was extremely good, no frills but very tasty food. We had to sit in the bar area which was very noisy, but no more so than most sports bars.
