After the Run: Local Favorites

The Rock Inn Mountain Tavern Go forth and let all the people eat bacon wrapped, garlic stuffed dates
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!
Smokin' Dave's BBQ & Taphouse Pulled pork was the best but so were the ribs, brisket, and bread pudding
Donut Haus Nothing Gluten Free. C'mon Donut Haus...get it together. For those of us who can't have gluten.
Inkwell & Brew Exceptional atmosphere, exceptional coffee, exceptional people!
Nepal's Cafe Great food and exceedingly friendly!
Mama Rose's The house salad is excellent, perfectly dressed. The wait staff is A++. Prices are affordable - our bill for a family of four came to a little over $70 which inc. beers & desserts.
Poppy's Pizza & Grill Here with a large group? Don't worry about paying extra gratuity. Poppy's has a policy of not charging extra for a large party!
The Egg & I Restaurants Bacon is amazing here.
Estes Park Pie Shop Not just about great pie. The diner food here is awesome. Pot pie and Mac and cheese is yummy!
You Need Pie The pies really are great. Big selection including gluten-free.
Cascades Restaraunt & Lounge Try the ice water. It's the best thing on the menu...
Mountain Home Cafe Skillets are awesome with hot corn tortillas and extra homemade salsa!
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.
Miyauchi's Snack Bar Get the wild berry crumble with a chocolate dip and a waffle cone
1029 Lake Ave., Grand Lake CO — (970) 627-9319
Sloopy's Grill Had a burger, fries, and a milkshake. All were delicious. Friendly staff and a nice place to hangout. Best burger in the Grand Lake area.
The Greenbriar Inn Dave our server was amazing and attentive. Phil was very cordial, it says a lot when the owner takes the time to greet patrons. Thank you for making my husbands birthday special.
