New pizza place to open in West Steamboat this summer

STEAMBOAT SPRINGS — A Steamboat Springs couple who has gotten many residents and visitors hooked on unconventional burgers containing such ingredients as peanut butter and a glazed donut are opening their next restaurant on the west side of the city.

How Ya Doin Pizza N Eatz is slated to open in July next to Storm Peak Brewing Company.

It will feature pizzas, sandwiches, salads and a full bar and outdoor patio.

Dave and Brandi Eliason, owners of Back Door Grill and O’Neil’s Tavern and Grill, are opening the restaurant.

“The idea was to provide Storm Peak with a food outlet,” Dave Eliason said. “We’re excited to see something else over there.”

A remodel of the restaurant space will have the outside resemble the brewery.

Brewery patrons will be able to order food from the restaurant and have it delivered.

The restaurant will also make deliveries in West Steamboat.

“We just want another food outlet on that side of town because it’s growing,” Brandi Eliason said. “It will be a family-friendly place and a great place to have a drink with friends or go bring your kids. It’s not going to be formal at all.”

Dave Eliason said the new restaurant will also feature appetizers and snack food.

“We’re also focusing on providing natural and non-GMO ingredients, including cheeses and everything,” Eliason said.

The Eliasons also own Steamboat’s Cupcake Mini Bar.

Dave Eliason said they are hoping to have the restaurant open the first week of July.

It will be open for lunch with hours running from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m.

“We’re basically just having fun,” Brandi Eliason said of being able to start a fourth eatery in Steamboat.
