I had a yak burger that was very good! Quite tasty. My wife had a good elk burger. Luckily, we got in without reservations. I would recommend it.

For me, there's nothing better than a good burger and fries after a long day hiking. You can usually find parking just behind the restaurant or across main street in other public parking lot. They offer elk, yak, and buffalo meat for the burgers. They also have a nice selection of local beers.

We sat outside after a day in Rocky Mountain National Park and enjoyed a yummy lunch. They have some wild game choices on the menu if you want to be adventurous. One inour party tried the yak and liked it. I was so hungry I just wanted a beefburger.

We stopped in after a long hike and it was decent. I don't believe it was anything to go on about but if you are looking for quick and sure thing I'd go there .

This place was really fun. Nice outdoor dining area out back, great service, excellent $4 wine specials. The food was very good BBQ style and the serving sizes were very big. Great for hungry teens!

Good place for a quick, casual bite. We sat outside, waitress was great and food was very good. I had the Cowboy Burger with elk, excellent. Would highly recommend.

We were in Estes for the weekend and wanted to sit outside to drinks some beers and eat burgers. We stopped at Grubsteak. The service was great, the beers were cold, they welcomed the kids and we would definitely go back!

The menu has a to choose from. My spouse ordered the Yak burger. I don't like "gamey" tasting or smelling food. The kids had a cheeseburger and fettuccine. I had the chicken guac bacon sandwich, which was tasty! The Yak burger came and it looked like a cheese burger. My spouse tried it and he could not distinguish the taste... More
