It has been a real ptomaine tavern for a couple of years now.
What happen to this place. The floors were covered with dirt, straws and looked like it has not been cleaned in months. Let alone, the pickles they served us, looked like they were frozen and tasted horrible. No one could eat them. The hamburger was running with grease and dripping out of the bun. Something tasted sour on the hamburger too. Not sure if it was the pickle, or catsup. Couldn't eat that side of the bun. Furthermore, the service was horrible. Not friendly at all. It was like, she didn't want to go out of her way for anything. Being a native of Colorado and have visited this place since it first started on Colorado Ave. I find this place very disheartening anymore. I will never go to this place again. Let alone, bring in out of town guests to this place. Local meat or not, the dirtiness, bad service and most of all, the way the food was prepared was shameful. This place needs a make over with everything. We visited this place on Saturday the 25th of May, 2013. The quality is just not there anymore. Sad really. I had not been there in almost a year and it has gotten a lot worse since then. The place seems like an old run down hamburger shop. Sorry but it does. If anyone would ever really look around that place. You will see it too. Sorry, I will never suggest this place to any of my out of town family and friends again. Not worth the embarrassment.
I've been coming here off and on since the 90's and the food is always awesome here. The flavor's, the perfect buns, and the fresh ingredients keep me coming back. Sure, you may have to wait about 10 to 20 minutes on some days, but it is indeed worth it. You can sit outside while you eat and enjoy an awesome view of the mountains!
AWESOME!! Best dogs in Colorado...always fresh & worth the wait! :)
a classic drive-in!
Burger and fries here are great! its a very small joint, seating is limited and snug inside, and outside is nice when the weather is good. Some friendly folks working there.
Mmmm. Get the Boston Shake. It's a sundae with a shake on top of it. About a million calories, but worth it!
Love this old-timey ice cream place... drive up or walk up -- sit outside so your chocolate dipped cone drips on the sidewalk, not in your car. Try a thick butterscotch malt or shake... they way they were meant to be made. This place is fresh out of 1960 and just as good. Reasonable prices and no-nonsense staff. And, hey, summer 'tis the season!
