The Fort Restaurant Review

This adobe structure, complete with flickering luminarias and a pinyon-pine bonfire in the courtyard, is a perfect reproduction of Bent's Fort, a Colorado fur-trade center. Buffalo meat and game are the specialties; the elk with huckleberry sauce and tequila-marinated quail are especially good. Intrepid eaters might try the buffalo bone-marrow appetizer, fiery peanut-butter–stuffed jalapeños, or Rocky Mountain oysters. Costumed characters from the fur trade wander the restaurant, playing the mandolin and telling tall tales.

    Tourist trap

    I am totally shocked that Fodor's would rank this place along side Mizuna and Kevin Taylor. It is a cool place if you like faux wild West ambiance. Looks like something out of a DisneyWorld set. But the food, meh, and wildly overpriced. I think it survives totally on tourists or locals showing visitors something Western. At these prices the food should match the decor and it just doesn't
