ZEST: Old Town Pub and Restaurant
With an emphasis on fresh, the western-style Old Town Pub and Restaurant is one of town’s longest-running dining and drinking establishments.
Making everything from scratch with a seasonally rotating menu, it offers such favorites as the Prime Rib Burrito and French Dip Philly as well as new offerings including strawberry and brie bruschetta, steak tacos and shrimp tapanade.
For the night owls, late night pizzas, made with fresh dough, sauce and toppings (try the crowd favorite buffalo chicken or BBQ chicken), are served from 8 p.m. to 1 a.m.
The restaurant’s long-standing “Burger Night” occurs every Thursday with half-price, locally sourced burgers. For appetizers, choose from its famous fried pickles to homemade onion rings and popper dip.
Soup and salad favorites include venison chili and seared ahi tuna salad, with sandwiches ranging from Southwest chicken to its rip-roaring Reuben.
A full line-up of music ensues every week as well, as do wines, microbrews and cocktails complementing its award-winning Rocky Mountain menu.
All this is found in an historic downtown building at Sixth Street and Lincoln Avenue, letting you take in town’s heritage while placating your hunger and kicking up your heels dancing.
