AAA Inspector Notes
Historic. First opened in 1893, this popular eatery has the prestige of being Denver's oldest restaurant and is filled with Western charm. The décor features Old West memorabilia, a 150-year-old hand-carved oak bar upstairs and an extensive taxidermy collection of local and exotic animals. The menu features standard Western fare, but also includes an exotic flair. Cowhands may start with a serving of rattlesnake, alligator tail or Rocky Mountain oysters. For the less adventurous, there's grilled duck breast, smoked buffalo sausage and sirloin game tips. Entrées offer even more options, including prime-grade beefsteaks, buffalo, elk, quail, Colorado lamb, pork ribs, Cornish game hen and salmon. There's entertainment Wednesday through Saturday, too. You'll find Buckhorn across from the light rail station.
