First off, know this... THEY DO NOT ACCEPT DEBIT OR CREDIT CARDS. You will need either cash or check. This is a little hamburger/cheeseburger/grilled chicken sandwich joint. They do serve grilled cheese, hot dogs and corndogs. This is not a healthy stop, but I must say, it is very tasty american food. The beer battered fries are really good as... More

Extremely busy place for a summer lunch but well worth the wait. If you are in the area site seeing or fishing this a must for lunch. Go early!

Traveling along the Silver Thread Highway between Creede and Lake City is this awesome establishment! You know it is good because good luck trying to find a place to park during the summer months, but I promise you, the wait is worth the hamburgers. My wife and I are self-proclaimed Hamburger Snobs and we look forward to sinking our teeth... More

From Creede take the drive over to Lake City. Do not take a motor home over these passes. Vistas are some of the best in Colorado. On the way back stop and set a spell at Freemans. They are open a few more days...but are Closed seasonally so check when they open in the spring.

This is a small oasis on the road from Creede to Lake City, Colorado and what a jewel! It is a great place to have a fresh burger complete with homemade sauces and presentations. We were there at 3 pm and the place was packed. It is basically a burger and fries joint with a lot of local nostalgia, but... More

Fun and quirky place to stop- good hamburgers with grilled onions, and don't forget the ice cream. This place is probably an old stage coach stop. Bring cash, they don't take credit cards. Place your order, then go sit down on the porch and they will bring your meal to you. Get there before 6pm because they turn off the... More

I had not heard of it, but saw a sign while driving from Creede to North Clear Creek Falls. The signage made was want to stop, and I'm glad we did! It was a busy little place, but we found a table. We placed our burger order at the counter and they brought it out to us. It was a... More
