In Mexico we always refer to the Bully Ranch as the place of artichoke dip and hamburgers. To our surprise, the dip is gone. Good reason not to return. Please reconsider. The word is already spreading around Mexico.... Same as the Swiss Chalet where fondue...More

Even if you skip the great burger - beef, elk or bison - the tater tots are worth the stop. Huge menu with something for everyone and at a good price. Located in the heart of Vail, it is close to everything.More
