This place will not disappoint when it comes to good pizza, drinks and food. It's very casual, has a great location in the village area and the pizza is really fantastic.

I'm by no means a pizza snob, more of an equal opportunity eater; nor had I ever heard of Detroit style pizza. But I sure am glad I want to Brown Dog and found out about it! We stopped in for dinner on a Friday on the way from Paonia to Cortez. Had to wait about 20 minutes, they sent... More

Brown dog is in the Top 5 pizza joints I've ever had. Definitely in top tier. And order the Detroit crust, it's a must. And Great atmosphere.

We ate here for dinner and then the next day for lunch. This place is great! This is the first time we had tried Detroit-style pizza (the tasty Rocky Mountain with pepperoni, sausage, bell peppers and olives). Man, this pizza was great! Lots of cheese, lots of toppings, lots of flavor. The staff here is friendly and attentive and the... More

A local recommended the Detroit Deep Dish pizza-she was right great change from flat bread style pizza. The Classic American Barneys meaty was also great. We ordered large of each and had enough pizza for 6-8 people. Ready on time.

This is a very busy place so we just sat at the bar and ordered pizza takeout. It smelled so good that we had to sit on a park bench and eat it while watching the town go by!

Brown Dog's Detroit pizza is truly amazing. We are local's in Telluride and still eat here regularly. When our family comes to visit, they always want to eat here even if they are only in town for a few days. The hand tossed pizza is also very good and my kids prefer this one. My favorite Detroit pizza's are the... More

Thin crust is my choice on pizza, but I must admit this thick crust was not like any I have ever had, it was great. Server was a bit slow but then I guess the must be laid back Telluride. Great drive to get there.

When I visit Telluride I always visit the Brown Dog. Never does this place disappoint. The atmosphere is an interesting Boston/Big Blue (Michigan) sport themed bar/restaurant with an awesome Detroit Style Pizza, sandwiches and complimentary options. Good bar selection, cold beer and friendly staff.

Not much to add to the other reviews. This place has great food. It is always super busy so expect a wait and don't expect the service to be able to completely keep up. From my observations, they try really hard but the place is just too busy most of the time.

Thank Patrick G
