We ate here two evenings and the food was delicious. The presentation was excellent and they served large portions of food. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We loved listening the the karaoke

We took a jeep tour through Adventures Out West. Our driver, Curly Bill, recommended this restaurant. The food was fantastic! We had a philly cheesesteak, buffalo burger and chicken fettuccine alfredo. Everything was really good! Will definitely go here again!

Food and service are meh to below average. Gave this place a second shot with the new menu but it wasn't any better. When it gets busy the service lacks quite a bit because they are overwhelmed with the amount of tables they have.

Food was AMAZING, service was fantastic, the setting is in the historic downtown district, with a beautiful view of the mountains. We dined outside, weather was perfect, and to top it off, we had our two dogs with us, and the waitress brought out a fresh bowl of water. Can't wait to visit here again.

We asked a souvenir shop owner for food suggestions and this was one she mentioned so we tried it and were happy with our pick. My husband and daughter had the buffalo burger while I had a regular burger. The burgers were good along with the fries that came with them. It has a nice feel inside and the service... More

Some time ago, I wrote a highly favorable review on Thunder and Buttons. We often ate and drank there. However, our last two visits were an enormous disappointment. Both times, I ordered what I use to enjoy. It was beef medallions, which came it a light zesty sauce. It was like a main course in a very elegant restaurant. That... More

Time to re-visit and re-review Thunder and Buttons (T&B) in Old Colorado City (OCC). Now that the local abbreviations are out of the way, we visited T&B again for a group lunch.

Right in the heart of Old Colorado City, T&B has a fun, festive atmosphere and great food. The menu offers a little bit of everything so it's good if you've got folks who all want something different!
