Description: We are open from June 1 thru late Sept. Our menu consists of pizzas (only one size - 16 inch - feeds 3-5 people), calzones, pasta, wraps, sandwiches, salads and desserts. We also have a 10" Gluten Free pizza and we have GF bread and buns for our sandwiches. For drinks, we have fountain drinks, iced tea (sweet and unsweet), beer (gluten free also), wine, fruit tea smoothies, specialty coffees and shakes. We also offer a dine-in special from 4-6 pm every day which consist of a cheese pizza and a pitcher of either beer or soda for $15.75. We have indoor seating as well as tables on the front deck and outside open dining with a great view of the mountains. As you enter, you will get a menu and be instructed to sit wherever you like and when you are ready to order, proceed to the register where you will place your order and pay at that time. You will be given an order number which will be called out once the order is ready. We prepare the food in the order that orders are taken and they are prepared fresh at that time. We do not jump tickets in order to do the easier ones or ones that take less time to prepare. We also do not have pre-prepared items. Occasionally, we will have some extra pizza slices prepared which can be bought immediately without having to wait. When we are in the busiest time of the summer season (late-June to mid-August), it is not uncommon for our customers to wait between 30 minutes to an hour for the food - just trying to be honest. The majority of our customers tell us that it is well worth the wait. We do not deliver but we take phone orders for carryout. Please call to verify our closing times which vary depending on the time of the season. We also close on Sunday so we can go to church and have our day of rest. Please come by and give us a try. We would be glad to serve you.

Reviewed July 26, 2014

Ate here twice on our trip. Once for pizza and once for breakfast. Alice offers gluten free options for pizza and breakfast. Both very tasty

“Poker Alice pleased!”
Reviewed July 19, 2014

We weren't looking for fast food, so didn't mind the time it took to cook it fresh. The pizza slices were huge, the veggie calzone was scrumptious, and there were good gluten-free options for the one in our party who needed that accommodation. We'll go back if our travels find us once again in this beautiful area of Colorado!

“Long Wait”
Reviewed July 13, 2014

The food is very expensive for average quality. We had a party of 4 and it took a very long time to get our orders out. The man working at the cash register took a long time to ring up our order. We got quite a bit of food, we had enough to take home. The menus have a little story about the legendary "Poker Alice" which is a fun read. Nothing too special about the place, very average.

“Slow slow slow...good but not worth an hour plus wait”
Reviewed July 11, 2014 via mobile

Have eaten here several times over the years. It's expensive, good pizza, but they have no idea how to cook it. It should not take nearly 2 hrs to get your order at lunch on a non-busy day. Eat here only if you want to spend your day here. Stopped at noon to eat, weren't done until 3:00!!!! It was not even very busy... We were not warned how long it takes. Some people ordered, and after an hour were told they ran out of crust. Terrible...

“Long wait”
Reviewed July 7, 2014

Food is good above average. If I were rating on food alone I would give 4 stars so please don't think the food is bad. My 3 star rating comes from the long wait. We had 2 meals here today, lunch and dinner. Both meals took one hour from the time we ordered until the food was ready. This could be a positive because it shows how busy thus place can be meaning the food is good but not quite one hour wait good. I will however continue to eat here because the buffalo burger is the bomb.
