very affordable for a resort area. we had dinner there. since it between 5 and 6 pm, we got our drinks for half price($4 for beer or wine), a plus. menu offered pork, chicken, beef brisket(did not see steak). typical roadhouse fare with 2 sides (eg, slaw, fries, or beans). three kinds of BBQ sauce mild, medium, hot. I got the 'miss piggy' sandwich of pulled pork, with fries and slaw for $9! I did not pick up much of a smoke flavor from the pork, but it was ok. my dining partner got the half chicken and thought it was good. décor is western with western music in the background. family friendly atmosphere

First of all the service we received from our young hostess and waitress was friendly, efficient and excellent, the mixed chopped salad was very good as were the fries and baked beans, the BBQ ribs, an ample portion, were very average and quite tough. We were rather disappointed but would be wiling to return and try a different entree

We stayed in a private condo in Avon for Xmas week and we absolutely loved this place. Forget the earlier reviews - the food is great, the portions are large, the service is exceptional, and the atmosphere is friendly without being pretentious. They serve breakfast, lunch & dinner 7 days/week. We always had a hard time choosing what to order, there is great variety on the menu and it's all great. Huge outdoor patio in the sun all day, wonderful place to come after a day on the slopes with their smoker working off to one side. Great place to watch football or sports, they have 15+ TV's carrying every live game. Fantastic fireplace, fantastic waitstaff, we adopted his place as our second home during this trip and highly recommend it to anyone coming to Avon or Beaver Creek. Great value for the $.

We had a "good" dinner at Montana's in Avon. It was convenient to the skiing at Beaver Creek without the big price tag. We sat in the bar, which was loud, but fun. They had live music and a good selection of beers on tap. There were 6 of us, and we had chicken wings, burgers, salads, brisket, pulled pork and chicken. The food was good -- like average bar-type food. The fries were a little under cooked and the chicken wings were a little overcooked so go figure! The burger was tasty. This place was a good value and decent food -- not the best, but a good, inexpensive, low-key alternative to some of the village dining! They did add in a gratuity for our party of 6 so be sure to check your bill if you are dining with a larger party!
