This is local flavor meets great breakfast. Perfect way to start off your morning before skiing or hiking. Try the blueberry pancakes and biscuits!

Another Aspen classic. Ribs Ribs Ribs.
just on the way in to Aspen (or out, depending which way you're going!) Walk up an appetite or take one of the free valley shuttles 2 stops.

Best BBQ you'll find in Aspen. Great atmosphere and kid friendly. I love taking the family here. And for breakfast, the blueberry pancakes are huge!

Probably the best BBQ in Colorado (there is one in Parker as well). The baby back ribs are phenomenal - the meat literally falls off the bone and everything is infused with hickory smoke taste. They have 2 different house sauces - I prefer the less spicy one (then add hot sauce). The onion rings are also great - fresh and served with a spicy sauce. Prices are very reasonable (especially for Aspen) and the atmosphere is lively and fun!

THE place to get authentic bar-b-que in Texas! I give it only 4 stars because I live full time in Austin and it is a tough comparison. But they actually kick out some great ribs and brisket, and it's a wonderful place to bring the whole family for a good value in meal in an otherwise expensive restaurant town. And if you can't get a table, then order one of their family platters to go and bring it home!

We had a terrific country breakfast here, with overflowing pots of coffee, eggs, hashbrowns and a stack of pancakes. It's a funky collection of taxidermy and folk art inside, with warm and friendly service. Next time, will go for the BBQ at dinnertime for sure.

Ate here for many years, excellent BBQ, very fair prices, jet-setters wouldn't even look at this place, but it is a typical western BBQ.

What an institution! The BBQ here is just out of the world. I love the sauce. The ambiance still hails back to Aspen's more working class roots. The prices do to! You can get out with a great filling meal for $12.
