Just had drinks, but really enjoyed the atmosphere and conversation. There's a great mural of buffalo (with a little surprise there too). Bartender was very attentive.

Fun little restaurant in the mountains. I had a buffalo burger, and while it wasn't bad, I've had better. I will definitely eat here again next time I'm in town.

Going I70 Westbound (or Eastbound) this is a must stop. We've eaten here for many years during our Colorado visits, and for some reason, this year, the buffalo burger hit a home run. Cooked just right, it was delicious. The onion rings are something to write home about . . .huge, and amazing. We'll keep visiting!!

The place was full,yet quiet and the service was prompt.
It was decorated with old signs and advertisements, nice.
Food was ok (usual normal American food: burgers, sides etc.) I had a glass of Colorado wine. All for less than 40 bucks!

It has been years since I have eaten in this restaurant. I used to stop here on the way back from skiing. Based on new visit I still like the place. I had the bison meatloaf burger with more fries than two people could eat. Nicely cooked and very tasty. Friend had the cod fish sandwich which was ok and served with a nice side salad. Good service overall. Cost about $20.00 plus tip.
