Stopped by here on Tuesday en route from Taos to Vail. We've visited Leadville several times and this place looked cool as a authentic bar from back in the day. It was lunchtime so we popped in. Interior is interesting with loads of cool stuff to check out on the walls and behind the bar. It's quite a large building - bar is quite big and there's a larger dining area at the back.
The first disappointment is that there are no beers on draft - the server seemed surprised that we were surprised by this. My wife had a bottled beer and had a root beer(which came out frozen). We ordered some food and chilled for a bit. I had a bowl of Chili - it looked good but something seemed odd with the flavour. I eventually ate around half of it...something which I regretted later. My wife had a burger - which she said was good. The fries were very odd though - they looked great(golden brown, skins on and with salt and pepper) but tasted as of they'd been half cooked and then finished...except they were still not cooked. So, both stake tasting and hard.
We left fairly rapidly and arrived later at our hotel near Vail. I began feeling unwell and have had a very dodgy digestive system since then, have hardly eaten anything all week. It could've been a stray bug but the Chili just tasted wrong. This place is OK for a drink just be careful what you eat there.
One other thing; there's a cute French Bulldog/Pug who walks around the bar. We saw him walk upto one of the bar stalls and have a pee. We were pretty shocked.
