After the Run: Local Favorites

Cy's Deli Moose Drool on tap FTW
Fat Cat Cafe Sat & Sun buffet has homemade desserts. Try it all, amazing!
916 Grand Ave., Grand Lake CO — (970) 627-0900
Sagebrush BBQ & Grill Feel free to bust a nut and leave it on the floor. In fact they encourage it.
1101 Grand Ave, Grand Lake CO — (970) 627-1404
The Rock Inn Mountain Tavern Go forth and let all the people eat bacon wrapped, garlic stuffed dates
Dunraven Inn You must get their special especially when it is fresh seafood! The muscles for an app were superb and an Irish coffee for dessert finished it off beautifully.
Big Horn Restaurant Blueberry pancakes -the best blueberry pancakes anywhere!
Cascades Restaraunt & Lounge Try the ice water. It's the best thing on the menu...
Baba's burgers, gyros & more Place looked deserted when I first pulled up(on a Friday afternoon) but I am glad I didn't let that deter me. Ordered an elk burger and fried zucchini. It was all delicious! Definitely recommend!
Wapiti Colorado Pub Wish I had come here sooner on my trip to Estes Park. Found fajitas as YUM! Nice staff, good authentic vibe.
Smokin' Dave's BBQ & Taphouse Pulled pork was the best but so were the ribs, brisket, and bread pudding
The Grubsteak Restaurant Best burger I have ever had ! It was a Bourbon glaze and onion straw Yak burger. Amazing. Will come back everytime I'm in Colorado
La Cabana Mexican Bar & Grill La Cabana Mexican Bar & Grill1
Chicago's Best Ma and pa place. Very good.
Claire's On The Park There may be a wait at other places, but you should probably just go to one of those other places and wait.
225 Park Ln, Estes Park CO — (970) 586-9564
Inkwell & Brew Exceptional atmosphere, exceptional coffee, exceptional people!
Mountain Home Cafe Skillets are awesome with hot corn tortillas and extra homemade salsa!
Nepal's Cafe Great food and exceedingly friendly!
Notchtop Bakery & Café This is a great breakfast restaurant with lots of healthy choices including gluten free options and GF bread that tastes like real bread. One of my favorite restaurants in Estes Park.
You Need Pie The pies really are great. Big selection including gluten-free.
