“Poutine perfect”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 July 2014

Went in after a hard ride and hike at the Beav. Eddie and Scotty at the bar were a delight to meet and the poutine is hard to beat. Delicious gravy. Looked at the dinner menu which looked like they really know what they are doing. Tired of the steakhouses in Vail, come to Boxcar! We will be back!

“Great find in Avon!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 July 2014 via mobile

Delicious, creative and seasonal food. Great service, friendly and informative to mixture of local and tourists. Good looking dining areas, though maybe a few umbrellas or shading of some sort for the outdoor patio would be nice. We really enjoyed our meal and would definitely return.

“Amazing all around experience!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 June 2014

What a wonderful new restaurant in Avon!!!! My husband and I were up for a weekend and had the opportunity to dine here. From the cool decor, to the warm and friendly staff to the amazing food and wine it was a treat! We will be back often this ski season and look forward to trying new things on their ever changing menu! They have got this place right, true gem in Avon.

“Spectacular New Restaurant In Avon”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 June 2014

Boxcar knocks it out of the park. From fabulously crafted, inventive cocktails, to tasty, expertly prepared food, Boxcar nails it on every level. The space is sleek and sexy, the staff friendly and informative. This was a best place my wife and I went while we were in the Vail Valley for vacation! I would highly recommend Boxcar. Ask for Scott behind the bar, he is super knowledgeable, and has helped create an amazing cocktail list: try the Roasted Pineapple Margarita! They have great specials Monday - Thursday as well. Go Monday night and have the fish and chips! Also the Rosemary Gougeres, Chicken Pate, and Boxcar Burger are spectacular as well. We will most certainly visit again when in the Vail Valley!
