    Fantastic. I had the rainbow trout. The green chile mac 'n cheese is one the the tastiest sides ever. The service was friendly and masterful. Finished with the Mexican creme brulee. I was delighted.

    Three words: Big Ass Burger. Roaring Fork is actually a lot classier than the name of its signature dish would suggest – think luxe leather couches – but that burger is to die for, y'all.

    Awesome spot downtown. Parking free in street on Sunday. Had the half rotisserie chicken, super good and enough to take home and eat cold later the same night. Guacamole was also really fresh

    The Waldorf salad was amazing. So delicious. The mexican corn was also excellent. My bf has the burger and it was alright but not as good as the other 2 thing. HH is a great deal

    Kettle of green chilli pork + fondue pot w/ lamb chops are great. If you're looking for something lighter, try the shrimp and avocado salad. Truth be told, everything we tried so far has been amazing.

    Me and my fiance ate fish there! It was truly amazing! I don't like that they haven't one vegetarian option but I guess that will come sooner or later.definitely a good place to eat with fresh quality

    Enjoyed chorizo mussels for appetizer and a nice pork shoulder carnitas for main course both had exceptional flavor.

    The fish tacos have the biggest chunks of perfectly grilled fish. Order the 2 instead of the 3, unless you're REALLY, really hungry.

    Just a couple of salads for vegetarians, and they have a lot of added sugars. The wine list is long and interesting though.

    Try the pork carnitas. Ask for it with a side of bbq sauce and get the mashed potatoes instead of the normal side. It's much better. The big ass burger is also very good.

    The queso and fresh salsa is great. That and a couple beers during happy hour is $11. How can you go wrong?

    Don't order the Salmon BLT - it should be called the TLBS - $14 for 2-3 oz of Salmon, 2 strips of bacon with lots of tomatoe, lettuce and pickles

    A slightly more upscale lunch and dinner alternative. Whether it's a pizza or grilled goodness, their wood fired style will make you smile.

    Mexican street corn is amazing. With the queso-n-guac appetizer it's practically a meal.
