“This is a bit of a drive, but it's my husband's family's favorite for three generations. It's AWESOME - so is the town of Minturn. Solid, solid Mexican food for the mountains and the patio and spot are legendary. The boys always get quail, quail, quail but you choose and you can't go wrong. Watch the hours on the website, it can be closed in off-season.”

“Headquarters for this festival and farmers market staple with a cult following in Colorado. The "quicky" is essentially a gyro, but made with more love. Daily specials in season.”
