We haven't figured out the secret yet, but Burger Boy serves up the most delicious green chile cheeseburger you'll ever put in your mouth. Check out the buffalo burger or the tasty Frito pie. It’s worth the drive and the dough!

Chef and Owner Jay Wulf’s Greenside Café calls to mind Hemingway’s "A Clean, Well-Lighted Place." It’s light and airy with a few hidden booths that, like Hemingway’s shadowy leaves, are refuge from the hustle of the dining room—and the city on the other side of the mountain. Perhaps the correlation between Hemingway’s stark description of the human condition and a place that serves enormous and tender slabs of chicken-fried steak is a little too deep, but mountain air has that effect on people. While you’re up there, order the Sangre de Cristo, a sandwich similar to a Monte Cristo with ham, turkey, Swiss and cheddar cheeses, green chile, and grilled, egg-battered Hawaiian bread. Everything’s made in-house, including the ice cream.

A lively bar frequented by the snowboarder crowd, the Lizard offers up a fine selection of locally brewed beer. La Cumbre, Marble and even Blue Corn are all well represented, along with labels from all over the country. The food isn’t much to leave town for, but it’s still a fine spot to toss back a few chicken wings and listen to a local band tear it up.

No matter the city, the best pizza usually comes from the least likely joint. Fresh ingredients, liberal use of cheese and one of the best New York-style crusts west of the Hudson River make Trail Rider a go-to joint. Yeah, there's some driving involved for most of you, but you won't be able to resist eating your pie in the car on the way home. They’ve got salads and sandwiches, too.
