Great lunch food. Menu is varied and the food comes out quick. Staff is nice. Located in downtown Dillon not far from the highway.

Our family of four tried the Arapahoe Cafe based on ta reviews. Service was nicely paced, and food was good. Highly recommended the mac n cheese with pulled pork and bacon. It was a Sunday night and the place was packed. Primarily due to the President's Day weekend and $7 Burger Sunday Special; available only in the pub downstairs. Check... More

Stopped by this interesting little local cafe on recommendations of friends. They said it was an old log cabin type building that had great food. They were right! The parking lot was packed at 12:15 for lunch. We walked in and there was 1 table available. We were immediately seated and waited upon. The menu has a good selection of... More

We enjoyed both breakfast and dinner at the cafe. Both meals were delicious. Service was great and prices reasonable. We have been to the Arapaho cafe numerous times and have been disappointed

Arapaho Cafe has great daily specials, especially in the lower level (Down Under). Very popular locals hangout with good food and drink prices and tasty food. Best to get there early, or you will be waiting for a table.

This was our first visit to the Arapahoe Cafe & Pub - its a cozy place but the service is quite slow. However, the BBQ more than makes up for the slow service - it was delicious! We shared the BBQ ribs & the BBQ Sammy - both were divine - we were stuffed!

Weekly specials are well worth it. Every day!! In the bar area, where you can mix and mingle with many interesting individuals

I have eaten at A-Cafe several times and the food is pretty good. I've tried their breakfast, burgers, and BBQ. The BBQ is definitely the best option. Their BBQ is award winning and has great taste. If you're looking for a good deal, their lunch specials are decently priced and you can get their BBQ sandwich (brisket or pull pork)... More

The breakfast was AMAZING. They seated us quickly so we could make the breakfast time slot. They were super busy but we didn't wait for food long. Really good food!
