This week we ate there twice using a groupon. The food was overall very good. The menu is very difficult to read. We dined there twice. The ribs are small compared to what you'll receive for baby back ribs elsewhere. With a groupon it is a good value, without it's average as far as value. This is a popular place to dine.

I visit Aspen often and eat here at least once per visit. The HH is very dependable. The menu is big, the portions are large, the service is usually fast and friendly and the food is generally always good and the prices are fair. On my most recent visit, I opted for the barbecue chicken dinner. For $13.00, a 1/2 barbecue chicken with baked potato and salad with a piece of Texas toast. A pretty good deal for pricey Aspen. There was nothing truly outstanding about my meal but nothing horrible either. Both potato and salad were fresh. The chicken was somewhat dry but not to the point that it was unedible. I simply used a little more of the barbecue sauce that they place on every table. The order of onion rings that my party had for an appetizer was very good and reminiscent of Outback's "Blooming Onion" - which has many, many fans out there. Finally, I would suggest a slice of banana cream pie for desert, if you still have room-it's loaded with fresh banana's and delicious. Have never been disappointed w/the HH!

My sons and I are always looking for a meal and a few beers after leaving it on whatever ski hill we just crushed. HH is right on Main Street and we took a chance.

It proved to be a great choice. Pulled pork, beef brisket, ribs were all above average. The platters include lots of starch chloice, beans and awesome cole slaw.

We were there early and watched the place fill up quickly. Very small bar, it is really a restaurant. Lots of families with young ones.

Ribs were very very average. Racks were very small. Would never eat ribs here again. If you have ever experienced incredible ribs down in Texas or N.C. you will be thoroughly disappointed. They make a bold claim of "Best ribs in Colorado" which is total bs. These ribs are what you'd get at Chilies or Applebees. Kn a positibe note..the waitress was good and it had a friendly atmosphere
