HomeEstes Park RestaurantsBig Horn Restaurant

Taking its name from Colorado’s state animal, Rocky Mountain bighorn sheep, Big Horn Restaurant strives to provide unforgettable food in a family-friendly and cozy atmosphere.

Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner

Breakfast at Big Horn Restaurant runs from 6 a.m. to 2 p.m., with lunch starting at 11:30 a.m. and dinner at 4 p.m. Come in for one of Big Horn’s Top-of-the-Morning specials, such as your choice of waffle or pancake with two eggs and two bacon strips for $7.99. Or create your perfect omelet, starting out with double cheese and adding your choice of green peppers, onions, tomatoes, mushrooms, jalapenos, spinach, black olives, ham, bacon, chorizo sausage, pork green chili or Southwest bison.

For lunch or dinner, you could grab one of Big Horn’s hickory-smoked entrees, served with barbeque sauce and a side of coleslaw. Or order an elk burger or Colorado bison burger, or just a plain beef burger if you want something familiar.


Want to just stop in for a simple sandwich and chips? Big Horn has you covered with its deli selection. Order one of their custom sandwiches with chips for $7.79, or build your own sandwich starting at $4.99. Do note that create-your-own sandwiches do not come with chips.

Going Picnicking
