This was an unexpected bonus to discover the Colorado Boy Brewery... and pizza kitchen! We almost didn't stop because of the number of people there. We were able to find two seats at the bar and were forced to sit when we smelled the captivating scents of fresh baked pizza from the kitchen behind the bar. We recommend others to experience the wonderful tastes of food and drink offered here!

I stopped in to try the hot chocolate. The staff (3) were friendly and managed my order a bit slowly, but I didn't care because I was checking out the books. A nice selection for such a small shop. The hot chocolate was not very hot, but it was flavorful.
The inside seating area is in a small room with a big window and nice view. If the weather is good, the outside seating looked like the place to be.
Many locals obviously like the coffee, as 6 locals piled in to get "the usual" while I waited for my order.
Check out the other bits and bobs for sale. I purchased some Gus chocolate. The packaging was pretty as was the cacao image on the top of the bar. Too bad the choc wasn't as nice as the presentation. The buttermilk bar was quite soft and had no buttermilk flavor. The other two flavors had a crisp snap when bit, but tasted like cleaning solution, so give the gus chocolate from Ouray a skip.

Ice Cream Parlor. Excellent! Cups and Cones, Lots of great milkshakes made with REAL ice cream, Awesome Sundaes, Floats too. Really fresh and delicious in a super clean establishment! The Cherries are imported from Italy and the whipped cream is home made.
My husband and I stopped in Ridgway to see the True Grit Café. However, instead of having lunch, we splurged on huge sundaes at the cute little Café Ridgway à la mode. Some sundaes and shakes had unique names. My husband had the Knickerbocker Glory ($7.37) that consisted of two scoops of vanilla and one scoop of strawberry ice cream, topped with raspberry jam, peach preserves, nuts, and a cherry. I had the Sexi Lexi ($5.25) that consisted of coffee ice cream, caramel sauce, toffee, amaretto whipped cream, and a cherry.
Chairs and tables were both inside and outside. Postcards on the counter showed the ice cream shop with snow-capped mountains in the background. The shop even hosts an annual milkshake competition.

A taco shop, borrowing from the tradition of street cart vendors. The menu contains an array of uniquely executed tacos . Breakfast is served all day, they also carry a selection of local micro brews, domestic beer and fresh squeezed margaritas. Taco Del Gnar is a Gnarly place to come grub, drink and chill. Open Tuesday to Saturday 9am to close.
Their hot salsa is the best we have ever tried! We were bowled over by the unique flavors and tastes of the tacos. Each one was better than the last and we just wish we had a Taco Del Gnar where we live! You don’t want to miss this place.

I've eaten here 3 times now and every time, it's the same result. Food is okay and freshly cooked - nothing earth shattering though. Service is BEYOND slow! I feel sorry for the servers as they're severely understaffed! Our last time there this past week it took well over 1/2 hour to get our check once we finished eating and actually asked for it. Not a good scene or good business when people are waiting for seats yet you can't leave because you don't have your check.

Howdy folks! Welcome to the True Grit Cafe Established in 1985, the "Grit" as it is known has been serving hungry tourists and locals for over 25 years. We offer excellent and tasty 'Cowboy Cuisine' in a comfortable western environment with a friendly staff that will make you feel like you're part of the Grit Family. We take a lot of pride in our homemade fare including the best dang chicken fried steak this side of the Rocky Mountains. Other menu specialties include hand-pattied burgers, mouth watering Tex-Mex Specialties, juicy steaks, house made meatloaf, fresh tempura battered mahi mahi fish and chips, sandwiches and gourmet salads. For the vegetarians we offer lots of tasty choices. We are also gluten-free friendly. Our wide selection of liquors, beer and wine give you a great place to gather round with the locals and visitors alike. We have two full bars, one on the main floor and one upstairs, around which locals and visitors gather to chat or share experiences in the beautiful San Juan Mountains. Our remodeled upstairs with its large private booths will accommodate from two to fourteen people, and don't forget the deck overlooking our beautiful park. The True Grit Cafe was built to honor the filming of the academy award winning movie "True Grit" starring John Wayne. Come sit on the deck and look out at the beautiful background you'll see throughout the movie. Oh, and you'll see a lot of pictures of the great star's film legacy all around.
4 and 5 dollar beers on tap i say is pricey and not very cold at that. Burger smothered in green chili nice and flavorful lots of fries but alittle cold when they got to me . Lunch waitress was very nice older lady w/glasses. Bar tender could smile once in awhile he kind of looks like he's glaring at you . The price of the main mean fair.

This awesome, charming, little restaurant knows how to make amazing curries - LOVED the massaman curry! The wait staff couldn't have been more friendly and informative regarding menu! The delivery of the food was a little slow - the only drawback. We had a lovely meal on the patio. They don't take reservations, but I phoned as we left our hotel and Mitch ( the owner's grandson) was happy to reserve a table for us. If you have the chance to meet the amazing owner, Alouni, with an amazing story it will well be worth your time. Alouni was a prisoner in Laos in 1975 for 4 years following the Vietnam war. He is truly a hero in too many ways to mention. He is one of the most humble, caring, salt of the earth people I have ever met!

Simple. Fun. Memorable. Inspiring. Local. Quality. Good. These are the words we use to describe our food.

It speaks of our lifestyle in which we desire healthy, quality food that tastes delicious yet is simple and casual and fun to eat.

Our menu will vary and develop with creative inspiration, seasonal tides, local freshness or a client's visions. We look forward to offering daily specials to allow for variety in our menu and a creative and unique experience everyday. We have strung together years of ideas, inspirations, talents, dreams, customs and traditions to bring you our vision to create a community gathering spot where food is the heart of life and living. We look forward to sharing with you our passions! Be good. Live simple. Eat well
My boyfriend was a bit skeptical of this place - I mean it is an Airstream with a port-a-potty bathroom (albeit the nicest one I've ever seen!). Lovely service with delicious options - we had the variations of the spiced chickpea wraps in naan. YUMMY!So glad you enjoyed!!! Thank you for the kind review ✌️❤️

We've been eating at the Adobe in since about 1986. It's been our favorite restaurant throughout all those years. We've been some of their best ambassadors in fact. However our most recent meal was an exception. Salsa was different. Chips were stale. Tostada was heavy on the beans. The guachamole was good but could have been better with fresh tasting chips. The main course was good overall but the Elote was dry. We didn't recognize any of the wait staff. We do hope it was just an off night We'll give it one more chance before we walk away disappointed.

European style restaurant and bar with revolving chefs tasting menu. fine dining with table service and chill atmosphere.
Arrived there with a friend for their Wednesday "Burger Night." They had craft beer drafts for only $3 and I ordered a burger with avocado and a roasted poblano Chile with a side salad. Everything was excellent. This is a cool little boutique cafe/bistro with some inventive options, good service, and a convenient location. I'll definitely be back the next time I'm in the area to try more of their menu items.
