Pour House Restaurant Carbondale, CO Compliment - Plenty of Good Food & Cheer

Review by Alain on 2011-09-12
CARBONDALE, COLORADO -- Everytime we visit Carbondale, CO we always make it a point to stop by the Pour House for a meal (usually lunch or an early dinner). We've enjoyed their sandwiches, entrees and burgers (cooked as you like them and great with the served-hot fries) over the years, as well as their friendly service. The Mexican food is pretty darn good to, if you have a taste for that. I've never left hungry since their portions are substantial. The bar has a good selection of drinks and beer. Their ice tea is good, too, on a warm summer afternoon. The atmosphere is casual and relaxed, much like the town of Carbondale is. The local folks like it, which is how we found out about this wonderful place. Our bill usually only runs about $20 or so (although we usually go with my StepMom and Dad-in which case it's 0 since he usually picks up the tab). I really like this place! It's a fine establishment for my Dad and I to relax and enjoy a good meal after our wives have spent lots of money shopping in town!

How is the city like in CO and did you take any pictures while you were there?

My Dad and Step Mom's place is just outside of the town of Carbondale (named after Carbondale, PA in 1888), MRM, on the banks of the Crystal River. The town itself has about 5,000 people and is very laid back and relaxed. I like to call it the low rent district of Aspen, which is around 25 minutes (and many $$) down the road. I have some pictures, but they need developing (I tried to put a digital up of Mt. Sopris, but kept getting an 'invalid format' message, even though it was a jpeg & <256 kb). I'll stick some on my blog when I get them. I have a dawn pic of the pond on the property on there now, but it's supersized and kinda dark.

Ah, I see the picture on the blog.

For great nighttime photo shots, turn off the flash and increase the shutter speed so that you'll let more lights into the lens.

Thank you for the tip! As you can see, I'm an unskilled photographer, but it's still fun! I remember you posted some great fireworks shots over the James from the 4th!
