After the Hike: Local Favorites

Dunraven Inn You must get their special especially when it is fresh seafood! The muscles for an app were superb and an Irish coffee for dessert finished it off beautifully.
The Rock Inn Mountain Tavern Go forth and let all the people eat bacon wrapped, garlic stuffed dates
Sundeck Restaurant Best apple pie ever!
Baba's burgers, gyros & more Gyros are great. Small place, a little dirty, but great food.
Smokin' Dave's BBQ & Taphouse Pulled pork was the best but so were the ribs, brisket, and bread pudding
Donut Haus Nothing Gluten Free. C'mon Donut Haus...get it together. For those of us who can't have gluten.
Wapiti Colorado Pub Wish I had come here sooner on my trip to Estes Park. Found fajitas as YUM! Nice staff, good authentic vibe.
The Grubsteak Restaurant Best burger I have ever had ! It was a Bourbon glaze and onion straw Yak burger. Amazing. Will come back everytime I'm in Colorado
Chicago's Best Ma and pa place. Very good.
Inkwell & Brew Exceptional atmosphere, exceptional coffee, exceptional people!
Nepal's Cafe Great food and exceedingly friendly!
La Cabana Mexican Bar & Grill La Cabana Mexican Bar & Grill1
Claire's On The Park There may be a wait at other places, but you should probably just go to one of those other places and wait.
225 Park Ln, Estes Park CO — (970) 586-9564
Mama Rose's Come in the warm weather and sit on the balcony by the river. Really affordable wine by the bottle selection too.
Poppy's Pizza & Grill Here with a large group? Don't worry about paying extra gratuity. Poppy's has a policy of not charging extra for a large party!
Ed's Cantina & Grill Address is spelled wrong, it's Elkhorn.
The Egg & I Restaurants Bacon is amazing here.
Peppers Fresh & Fast Mexican Grill Get the diablo hot sauce! Incredible
You Need Pie Piegasm... That is all
Estes Park Pie Shop Not just about great pie. The diner food here is awesome. Pot pie and Mac and cheese is yummy!
