Penelope’s Old Time Burgers and Fries was once voted best burger in Estes Park. They point this out on all their promotional materials. Unfortunately, they don’t reveal WHEN they were voted best burger in Estes, because they certainly don’t make the best burger now.
(That honor goes to Baba’s Burgers and Gyros.)
Like many restaurants in Estes Park, they don’t have to have great food to succeed, because the majority of their business is made up of tourists that they’ll never see again.
The old timey decor is a hodgepodge of antique items that feels tired, rather than quaint and nostalgic.
The food itself isn’t much better, alas. It’s okay, but not much else.
This makes us sad, because there is real potential here, and Penelope’s Old Time Burgers and Fries was a local favorite once upon a time. We hope they will be again someday!
