We went for the salad bar but it wasn't very big. They didn't have much of a selection. The items we ordered off the menu were okay. We weren't overly impressed. The bathroom was a bit odd. The wall in front of the toilet was...More

I liked the bighorn for breakfast. The portions are filling and there are lots of options done right. Friendly attentive staff, old fashion dessert, and small town feel. They have a small salad bar and serve lunch or deli sandwiches to go, might try them...More

This is one of our go-to places in Estes Park. It is unpretentious yet the food and service are always good. Our most recent visit was on Halloween Day, at about 2:30 after we had hiked in RMNP. They were planning to close early that...More

Okay food and okay prices - nothing special. My husband ordered the fajitas and it was served in one giant tortilla with beef that was more like deli sliced roast beef instead of fajita meat.
