“Fresh” and “dogs” (lime margaritas and Flying Dog microbrews, respectively) sail over the carved wood bar to everyone from old-timers in overalls to Aspen’s couture crowd. (this was Hunter S. Thompson’s hangout.) But a no-credit card no-reservations policy evens the field. Try a famous Limousin beef burger and nachos “works,” dripping with cheese, vegetarian chorizo and fresh jalapenos. Located 10 minutes from Aspen.
