Suprising that this place stays in business. We went to order from the menu and after 10 minutes were told there was only two choices, tamales or pulled pork. We waited over an hour, only half the table was served, and the plates were scorched...More

I've been past this place numerous times and decided to stop on a slow Saturday afternoon. I was one of about eight people inside. Many of the previous reviews say that the food is good, but the service isn't the best. My experience mirrors that...More

This cool little hole-in-wall features some laid-back staff who may not be rockstar servers but are personable, real humans. The menu has some great monster burgers if you're coming off a 14er or the slopes and are in need of repleting some electrolytes. Try their...More

They allow dogs, good hamburgers, good beer selection. I enjoyed this dive restaurant/bar. Especially great after a day of playing in clear creek. The owner is friendly as well.

Hostile staff, terrible concept of service. Unfriendly environment. Stay away from here. Imagine a stuck in the past, backwoods, establishment and you'll have a mental image of this sad and pathetic place.

The bar formerly know as "Kermits". Good craft brews. Good tamales and green chile. Not much has changed. That's a good thing.
