“Burritos are wonderful”
Reviewed October 28, 2012 via mobile

We ate at the Brown Burro about 7 or 8 years ago. It was wonderful. We had the smothered burrito with green chile. We will be back the next time we are in the area.

“Awesome Breakfast!”
Reviewed October 25, 2012

We went to the Brown Burro every morning for breakfast during our stay in Fairplay! Every dish is outstanding. The homemade cinnamon rolls are excellent! You will love this place! Great service and very friendly staff!

“Authentic Wild Wild West Breakfast”
Reviewed October 11, 2012

Three words to describe this place: cozy, delicious, affordable.

We stopped by Brown Burro for breakfast one morning on our vacation in Breckenridge. For a Monday morning at 9:30am, they were busy (a good sign in my book) but we were seated immediately. We loved how cozy and homey the place was, but best of all the service was friendly and super fast (our food came out hot within 5 minutes) and the food - incredible. Our table ordered a variety of items: pancakes, hash browns with gravy (yes, with gravy - was as awesome as that sounds), bacon, eggs, and a breakfast burrito and we were pleased with all them. My frugal husband was even impressed with his stack of two pancakes (they were huge!) for $3.

Will be back for sure on our next visit to Colorado.

“Homey and terrific food and service”
Reviewed October 1, 2012

Stopped in around 7:30 on a Saturday morning. You could tell this was a good place to eat because it was packed. We sat at the bar with three locals and soaked up the atmosphere! They filled our coffee mugs and had our orders to us very fast. I had George's Special of hash browns smothered in sausage gravy, and my wife had hash browns, scrambled eggs, and two pancakes. To my amazement she ate every bite, except a few of her eggs! The food was fresh and HOT! Getting hot food in eating establishments today can sometimes be a challenge?

Stop here...you will be glad you did..just a little west of the stop light on HWY 285.

“Good lunch”
Reviewed September 30, 2012

What a busy place. We dined at 1PM, and waited for 15 minutes for a table. The prices were very reasonable. We had the buffalo burger and it was good. It also has a sweet shop next door and again, it is very reasonably priced.
