After a day on the slopes, reward yourself with margarita pitchers made with real lime juice and baskets of unlimited tortilla chips and homemade salsa. An anecdote to Vail's polished lounges, Minturn Saloon has been a favorite of locals and in-the-know professional skiers and snowboarders for years. In 2011, it was ranked among Esquire's "Best Bars in America." No wonder the place is always packed. Antlers and 1980s ski posters adorn the walls in a dining room that calls to mind the Old West, where you can feast on such specialties as chiles rellenos (stuffed peppers) and a steak-and-quail plate. There's even a children's menu.
