“It's a Pleasing Pie Place”
Reviewed May 14, 2014

Well, there is not a lot of competition for quality food -- or any place to eat -- in Leadville, Co. It's a very, very ,very small place. A mile square. With less than 2000 residents. It's tiny. And wonderful. And high. And surrounded by gorgeous terrain. Mountains and sky. Sky.Sky! Sky! So by the time you get here, you are hungry. High Mountain Pies must have a reputation or the Trip Advisor Reviewers have given it one. The staff was friendly and nice. Not talkative, but nice. The pizza was scrumptious! Drinks served in cans. No ice. The place is TEENY TINY. Enough room for maybe 4-5 small tables. Back to Back. leg to leg. Shoulder to Shoulder. We were told it's too small to fit in an ice-machine. So, no ice. But the can was cold. And we were thirsty. The pizza was awesome. Did I say that already? They have all kinds of options. Plus you can build your own. Fresh veggies. Things like shrimp too. Fruit on pizza. Mmmmmmm. Yep. It's worth it to go there. Not to just eat pizza. But to see Leadville. And eat pizza while there. Leadville is the highest incorporated city in the United States. Over 10,000 feet above sea level. And the home of Mt. Elbert. It's a good place to strike off your bucket list. Check out the restroom. Cool walls.

“Really good pizza”
Reviewed April 17, 2014

A little pricey, but worth it. Lots of specialty pizzas like Mediterranean. To go or delivery in town. Not much room to eat there, only 2 tables.

“Awesome ribs...”
Reviewed April 15, 2014

...great sandwiches and fantastic looking pizza (didn't have any space left to try any). Service was excellent and the place had an interesting atmosphere that could be described as surfer dude meets hill billy.

“"Great Food"”
Reviewed April 15, 2014

Eat in, delivery in town, or pick up. Everything is soooo good. Verity of toppings for pizza and sandwiches and "other" goodies. Outside dinning in the summer is in a quaint garden with local floral.
