Oak, The New Fat Alley is a delightful BBQ joint in the gondola plaza in town. Once called Fat Alley, Oak still offers delicious southern style BBQ at a reasonable price. It’s one of the more popular apres-ski spots in town, and in the summer has a wonderful outdoor patio on which you can enjoy draft beer and their signature pulled pork sandwich or sliders. Ask a local about one of the many off menu dishes. You can’t go wrong with a meal at Oak.

Steamies Burger Bar

The award winning Steamies Burger Bar is an absolute must try while in Telluride. Using a revolutionary new method (and healthier) of steaming their burgers, Steamies was voted #1 burger in the state at the premiere statewide burger competition, Colorado Burger Summit! The chicken sandwich is one of my favorites. Make sure to check out the sauce bar. There will be something to dip for everyone. Go see what all the fuss is about.
