“Locals Non-Favorite!!!!!!”
Reviewed March 25, 2013

Food is extremely disgusting and honestly sometimes you are forced to use the restroom before you are finished with your meal. Unfortunately the owner does not know how to respectfully treat people and should keep his politics separate from his public business. And the signage is absolutley insulting and condescending to the patrons that spend their hard earned money at this establishment.

“Amazing kindness, care, and concern”
Reviewed March 18, 2013

The Golden Burro is already established as a destination, and everybody already knows to buy a copy of the menu (seriously, Zagat 5-star restaurants couldn't get you to part with money for a copy of the menu.) So this review is about something special:

When we were there this weekend, we had "health incident" with a child. I'll leave off the details as I know you'e thinking about food, and it would put you off. The point is, every staff member came by, one by one, to see if they could help, to sympathize, to offer suggestions and advice, or just to care a little.

We were so touched by their genuine care and concern, and want to thank the entire Golden Burro staff. Whether you believe in god or karma, simple good luck or just a bit of love, you will find it living at the Golden Burro in Leadville, CO. Go there.

“a long time Leadville favorite”
Reviewed March 12, 2013

Have been bringing friends here for over 20 years. Good selections on the menu for nearly anyone. Often crowded, but the historic photos are worth the wait.

“DO NOT eat here”
Reviewed March 11, 2013

Yes, it is a piece of local history, but OMG it was horrible-cold, tasteless, slow, etc... Josh wasn't kidding about the 25 page menu which the servers call the phone book. They even have a TV running a nonstop ad in the center of the place to sell local history videos! We stopped at 6pm on Saturday night, about 5 others in place, and it still took over 30 minutes to get really bad food. Wow. And Bville Boy, the local cop probably got 50% off his food for stopping there. Ugh
