“Amazing sandwich”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 20, 2011

Had lunch here today. It was all a bit 'random', but when the food arrived (and it was pretty quick), it was absolutely stunning. A really great combination of meats and salads that tasted superb.

Also had a great coffee which is harder to find in vail than I would have expected.

“Great Value - Gourmet on Gore”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 5, 2011

Sept 4th was Gourmet on Gore in Vail. Lots of restaurants on the street, selling their "wares". Big Bear was one of the "favorites" with people lined up to sample the tomato, mozzarella, pesto panini sandwich. The best value on the street. Delicious. Keep up the good work!

“Good food and Good Value”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 24, 2011

This isn't your average sandwich shop, they have put a lot of thought into their menu. Really good eats and they carry local brews...always fun to discover a new Ale.
