....about the only "game in town" on a Christmas Eve. The place was packed - what with the holiday and the Broncos game. The food was good and the service was also good considering how busy they were.

My family liked this place so much that we came twice. My husband said this "might be the best burger I've ever had." Which kind of says a lot coming from him because we travel a lot and he never says things like that. He had the "hangover burger" with green chiles added. I was attempting to eat healthy here,...

The place looked fun, the menu & food was better than average, but the service was just average. The regulars made you feel like you didn't belong there so we didn't stay long and didn't go back.

Patrons of the bar were getting very loud and it was not even the Broncos playing. Food was OK but not outstanding.

The food was wonderful and made from scratch. We were surrounded with Large TV's making all tables able to enjoy the game. A very fun way to enjoy our Broncos away from home.

My wife and I found this place off the beaten path in Glenwood Springs on a busy Friday night. We went in just looking for drinks but after reviewing the enticing menu, decided to give the food a try. What a wonderful surprise! First off, simply put, the best green chile in town! Then the wings. Charlotte (our upbeat and... More

I was Buzzing down I 70 and missed the Glenwood exit. But no problem, turns out Big Daddy's has sit-down tables, an outdoor patio, and a bar. They employ a Chef (not just cooks) who does tasty smoked meats and salads, a good and rare thing for a sports bar to have. The beer list is wide ranging, like any... More
