Boxcar closed on Labor Day weekend...problems with the landlord. My guess is one of the chef/owners, Hunter, will show up locally before ski season. Question is how many of his staff will be with him. Boxcar was never able to go to lunch service due...More

Fantastic cocktails. The margarita is my go-to happy hour drink. Sweet and spicy with jalapeno syrup. All the snacks are great as well. Go-to is the pretzel with 3 sauces. Weekly stop for us!

'appy Hour is great on this patio. Be sure and get a pretzel and if you like mussels, they're great. Fun cocktails as well.

This is a cool place with good food but the service was slow. I like to visit original restaurants when I travel and this place was definitely worth the visit.

Stopped late in the evening on the drive from DIA to Paonia and so glad we did. Sat at the bar and had super friendly service, a couple of excellent bourbon cocktails, and great eats - sausage, mussels, burrata, pate, and some of the best...More
