    Buffalo prime rib and the Colorado lamb. The other meats can be hit or miss (tough or gamey)

    Although you can order everything from buffalo to yak to rattlesnake here, the Big Steak -- big indeed, bloody rare and served with all the trimmings -- is the dish to get. Read more

    Since you're here and this place was the 1st. one to be allowed to sell alcohol after the prohibition, order an Odell 90 Shilling, locally brewed in Colorado!

    This place is not for vegetarians. A dream come true for carnivores. Holy yum.

  • Jackal

    Our table got both the brownie and the apple pie. Though the pie was good, it wasn't great. The brownie, on the other hand, made me want more. Complementing the rest of the, grand, meal of game.

    Honestly? There's nothing for vegeterians in the menu... Horrible trophies on the walls. If you are an animal lover please don't come here

    Executive lunch with pot roast sandwich (on pumpernickel) and bean soup. Narcotically salty & delicious.

    Last time I was here the bartender made me a couple of different martini's, tonight the bartender said, "We only make cosmos here". Get a different job if you don't want to be a bartender! Thanks!
