You will find a wide variety of cuisine suitable for all budgets and tastes. Because this is a tourist town, and because Colorado is generally pretty casual, you do not need to dress up for most restaurants. Even at the fancier restaurants, a nice pair of khakis and a sweater is enough.
Although we do have a few chains, we encourage you to try out the local homegrown establishments. After all, you didn’t go on vacation just to try a new McDonald’s, did you? Most restaurant owners are hardworking, nice folks, and we hope you’ll give them a try.
One tip – between Memorial Day and Labor Day, the town can be very crowded, especially on weekends. For the best service at the more popular restaurants, go at odd hours! Breakfast before seven, or have lunch at 2:30. That’s how the locals do it.
