    Count on college style grease bombs, but a perfect stop on any hill tour in Boulder. Great wings, pizza, burgers, and a terrific slate of rotating taps and bottles

    Portobello burger, markets salad is awsome, afrodita salad is great, and POTUS pizza is really fantastic! This last was recommended by president Obama.

    Very fun spot for a meal. A tad loud so you will need to compete with the next table if you are wanting to hold a conversation. Other than that the burgers rock and so does he wait staff

    Historic and well marketed, but booze is way too expensive for a college bar. $6 rumpleminze shots?! The beer "special" is $3.50?!

    This place was cool before Obama visited. Order the Sink Burger, follow it up with some tasty microbrews, and then find a spot on the wall to sign your name.
