This place was jammed at 11:30 in the morning mid week with a lunch crowd that just kept growing. Good food, good price s.

Yes, it IS worth the trip, once a month at least. No, it is not an "Italian grinder". Yes, it is a grinder, unlike any you will have anywhere else. Even if you are not a sausage fan, it deserves to be tried. If you go to Pass Key and don't get the signature dish, do not write a review.... More

My hubby and i ate what we could The food was not too good. The wings were salty over done. The spaghetti with chicken was bland and the toasted bread was greasy and terrible. I love to eat at restaurants that have great food but this one did not make my list sorry

Very nice staff. Had a sausage sandwich and chili dog near closing time. The sandwich was a thin patty of meat which tasted like and resembled a thin piece of hamburger. Dry. No spice. Very little toppings. Thick bun. Could not eat it all due to bland taste. Tried a chili dog next. Watched them deep fry the hot dog.... More

This is a jewel of a place to eat. The Passkey special which they are known for is a must. It is a Italian sausage sandwich will be served in Heaven, yes it is that good. I took my family by after eating one at the Colorado State Fair. I had to take the whole family along and everyone of... More

We were visiting Pueblo from out of town and one of our family members recommended we eat at Pass Key. For whatever reason, both of us assumed "sausage sandwich" meant a sausage LINK, so we were both surprised when the sandwich arrived and it was a sausage patty! However, we were NOT disappointed. The meat was so flavorful and cooked... More

I left one review for the Passkey on the Northside of Pueblo off Hwy 50 West. This Passkey I'm writing about is off I-25 & Abriendo. Get off the interstate and less than a quarter mile off the exit (only one way you can go), you will have reached heaven. On the right hand side of road and very easy... More

If you like sausage sandwiches this is the place. The 1/2 special with provolone with fries is my favorite. The sausage is crisp just on the edges and the bread is fresh with a bit of chewiness. The sausage is just spicy enough but not too hot like I've had at another place. Mustard and lettuce bring it all together.... More

Ate there when having car serviced at nearby dealer. Italian sandwich was a disappointment. Was expecting an Italian style sandwich only to find a hamburger style sandwich with a pork patty, there was very little onion or pepper to accompany the meat patty. They have been in business for 60 years and this is supposed to be the signature sandwich.... More
