Great little place with very good BBQ, beer, sides and even a good salad for my wife. Owner chatted with us a while, giving recommendations for stuff to do in area. Super friendly and great feel. Will definitely come back!

If you prefer a good, home town restaurant over the glitz of Vail, Kirby Cosmo's is the place for you. At 5 miles tot he west, it very much caters to the locals, which gives it its charm. The food is simple, pletniful and great; BBQ, ribs, beans, slaw and cornbread. The atmosphere is comfortable. Its looks from the outside... More

Had the pulled pork sandwich with Mac n cheese side (with jalapenos! Genius!). So heartwarming and delicious after a day on the slopes. Also came again and had the Kirby burger. Again, delicious! Highly recommended. Seemed to be a lot of locals, which is also a great sign 😀

We were visiting family in Edwards and were looking for a "local" bar/tavern for a late lunch. Very friendly owner and staff. Excellent burgers and the fries were killer. The owner suggested we try the Deep Eddy Pink Grapefruit Vodka - good recommendation! We want to go back for the BBQ - it looked (and smelled great!) Relaxed atmosphere as... More

Friendly atmosphere, great bbq. We stop here all the time to enjoy friends and family. It's one of a kind. Always a kick for a small town bistro. A nice place to enjoy Minturn and mountain summertime!!

Had half order of St. Louis style BBQ ribs, cornbread, mac n cheese, coleslaw. Delicious. We were lucky that most of the Saturday night crowd was in Vail for the free concert.

I don't like BBQ. And yet, I LOVED IT. I don't know what kind of magic they put in their sauces, but it worked. Well worth the short trip out of Vail Village. Will come back at every single opportunity!

Stopped by this past may roughly. I got the cowboy cup and oh man was it good, little sweet, little tangy, delicious. I wish I would've stopped sooner. Lived in Colorado for 8 years and drove by this place a few times over those years . I recently moved to North Carolina but when I come back this is a... More

I have made a point over the years to stop for BBQ here when visiting nearby Vail. I have always had great service and tasty food each and every time I stop. It is not a fancy place but the BBQ more than makes up for the lack of ambiance. The place knows there BBQ so take my word and... More
