Unique atmosphere and full of local flavor. Good food and service. Definitely not boring. Pizza would be a great choice.

Stopped by for lunch going up to Steamboat Springs. Food was really good. Originally heard about it on DID. It was like stepping back into the 70's with the music and the painted walls. Staff was great. The whole family enjoyed it. A++
