Located just off US-24, the building that houses Lariat has had many lives. The most recent one is a vibrant pub with live entertainment. The lunch menu is unique offering some items you've unlikely to find anywhere else in Colorado.

Stopped by for lunch after just arriving in the area! Very friendly staff and an awesome burger!!! Looks like it would be a fun place for live music as well.
