We're locals in the Leadville area and enjoy eating breakfast here. The food is very good--our favorite is the Tex-Mex Omlet. We plan to try them for lunch or dinner because they have a wonderful menu selection. It can get very busy at the restaurant during summer or a special event, but has always been worth the wait.

The menu is worth the trip in. It is full of historical facts about the Leadville area.
The atmosphere is very fitting for the "number 2 old west town."
Our waitress was friendly and efficient. The food was good, nothing extra special, but all tasted homemade. (I had the green chile "soup."). There is an extremely wide selection to choose from. The portions were worth the price.
The only negative we had was one of our party ordered the raspberry tea, but had to send it back because it was too bitter. Sugar didn't even cover the bitterness.

Dated food and music selection. Their 'award winning steak' was grade D meat at best. They were also not child friendly. But the service was okay.

We used to admire the atmosphere of the place, but it has now been spoiled by numerous signs about misbehaving kids and cycling shoes, even about splashing of a toilet, and by adding of a shelf with promotional and advertizing materials, which pretend to be "information center". There used to be a classic American food, which is now intermingled with a Mexican food. The food is good, but without invention. I wonder why there is no trout in the menu; there are cutthroat trout, rainbow trout and greenback cutthroat trout in Colorado rivers, but you cannot order any of them in the Golden Burro.

This restaurant's menu is all over the place without identity, with diner-style, mediocre Mexican, seafood. Although they have a prominent sign declaring that it is a visitor's center, they are very aggravated if you just stop in to use the rest room and pick up brochures.
