Food & Drink

After the Ride: Local Favorites

Up 4 Pizza The best cookie in the world. Try it!
Ullrhof Large vanilla shake. Then walk to the bar. Add a shot of vanilla vodka and a shot of Kalua. Best $23 shake in Snowmass.
Highlands Alehouse Best beer selection in the valley.
133 Prospector Rd, Aspen CO — (970) 544-0015
Sam's Smokehouse The Brunswick stew is off the chain! Ask for Scott. He's one ballin' dude.
Eight K at Viceroy Snowmass Deviled eggs are out of this world, lobster risotto was a stand out. Hugo is a trip, being from Miami he brought a small slice of home to this mountain gem.
Lynn Britt Cabin Best food on the mountain
Hiking Trail, Aspen CO — (970) 923-8715
Bonnie's White bean chilli is a must order
Aspen Mountain, Aspen CO — (970) 544-6252
Venga Venga Cantina & Tequila Bar The $6 draft beer doesn't even come in a glass. That's weak.
The Stew Pot Stewpendous
Il Poggio Ristorante Adrian, the bartender is terrific. And the pizza is great.
57 Elbert Lane, Snowmass CO — (970) 923-4292
Hickory House Substitute onion rings for fries. They come with a bad ass sauce too.
730 W Main St, Aspen CO — (970) 925-2313
Ajax Tavern Great happy hour!. Gotta have a locally raised beef burger.
685 E Durant Ave, Aspen CO — (970) 920-6334
Red Onion Get a "bear fight", it's a jager-bomb and an irish car bomb. Actually, get a few.
420 E Cooper Ave, Aspen CO — (970) 925-9955
Big Wrap Bring cash, they don't take credit cards. Go to an ATM, the food is worth it.
Paradise Bakery Snickerdoodle cookie or any ice cream..
320 S Galena St, Aspen CO — (970) 925-7585
Justice Snow's It was fun. Took a bit to get drinks as they are labor intensive, but yummy! Lots to choose from.
520 Grill The bison burger is among the best I've ever had. Chill place, close to the gondola, with good tunes and low (by aspen standards) prices. Highly recommended.
520 E Cooper Ave, Aspen CO — (970) 925-9788
campo DeFiori Try the lemoncello...yummy..
205 S Mill St, Aspen CO — (205) 764-5578
Aspen Overeasy The breakfast quesadilla is very good. Also try the freshly squeezed juices (make your own combo).
