I love The West End Tavern. It’s on Boulder’s West End which is my favorite part of town on the west end of the Pearl St. Mall. It has great atmosphere, a killer roof top deck with a view of the Flatirons, great whiskey and beer selection and excellent service because this is one of Dave Quary’s Big Red F restaurants. Oh, and the food, it’s not off the charts great but it’s good which is fine with me. The fried pickles with a killer dipping sauce, pictured below, are pretty damn good and the Brisket is surprisingly good and smoked in house. The salads are tasty as well. My favorite thing to do is go there in the summer and sit on the west deck and soak in the view. It’s really fun up there. The east side of their roof top deck is covered and is a sports bar with a bunch of TVs and it’s own bar. Just an all around great place.
