We wanted to eat a college local spot for lunch. This was it. Bonus Robert Redford worked there once upon a time, DDD came here and Obama. We ate the two items that DDD also sampled when there. The first was the Reuben, their version...More

Had to go here because the young ones in our group love Drive ins, Diners, and Dives on HGTV. This is definitely a college student oasis dripping with testosterone and high decibel levels. The hip exterior belies a rather claustrophobic interior with a garage or...More

Great burgers and beers, friendly staff that actually know the menu. Loved the artwork. It's a quintessential college spot and you feel like it's YOUR college spot...even if you didn't go to UC Boulder.

It's one of those unique places that should not be missed! You will see the spot where former President Obama signed his name on the wall after stopping in for a pizza, some very cool art work, and delicious food. Not for the claustrophobic as...More
