Great burger! In a somewhat interesting atmosphere. Rumor has it that it’s an old hangout for The Grateful Dead. Rumor heard away from the restaurant, not by anyone in the restaurant. Also heard that it was originally a bikers bar. Whatever. Now back to the...More

Soo good to finally get to eat at this unassumingly legendary Tavern. The food was awesome, we ate the Chicken Chipotle Stew, which was just fabulous. The owners were so friendly and hospitable and the place is just so full of character. Very much like...More

If you enjoy dive bars with excellent food this is the place. It is cash only, but there is an ATM onsite. The chicken enchiladas were outstanding. The place was busy, but service was excellent nonetheless.

We have heard about Wood Creek Tavern from many friends who come to Aspen often. We were not disappointed! Tucked away in a great spot. Food was fantastic - one of the best burgers I have EVER had. No kidding. We sat at the bar...More

This place is tucked away with lots of history behind it. There were 14 of us and the staff serving us was excellent. Lot of things are homemade from scratch! They are known for their margaritas! Only seat complete parties and only take cash/check but...More

Had the pork tamale lunch today. The tamales were pretty good, the black beans were just OK. Seemed a little overpriced at $15.95 and wasn't as tasty as some reviews reported. I was slightly disappointed with my lunch, but have had a good burger here...More

This is the flip side to Aspen. Incredibly casual. Earthy in fact. Gritty. Buyer beware! These are some of the qualities you’ll experience during a Woody Creek visit! Great service, too. Excellent food. Pretty easy to find, but you will need a car. WCT will...More

What a great little restaurant off the beaten path! Popular with locals, it’s a casual place for lunch or dinner with fast service and good food. I had lunch with my sister and niece. We started with nachos which you can get vegan or vegetarian....More

Right on the creek, unfortunately there is no creekside seating or scenic views. Outdoor seating is available. Kind of a quirky place, a bit of a biker bar. Their enchiladas and tamales were quite good. Good burger offerings. Reasonably priced.
