I don't know if it is a chain or not, but we love Serious Texas BBQ in Durango. There are two of them in town, one on the north end and one on the south end of 550.

There is also a really good breakfast place on 550, right in the middle of town. It is on the west side of the road, just north of the bridge that crosses the Animas River. It is an old house that has been renovated to a tea room kind of place. Great scones, muffins and coffee. We didn't have time to sit down and eat, but the hot breakfasts smelled delicious.

food in Lake City?! Better just hope that something's open--it's a very tiny town.

We ate at Steam City Brewery last week in Durango. The food was good but the service was bad--wouldn't recommend it.

Southwest of Lake City there is a small family run Italian restaurant called A and A Ranches. My Wife and I ate there 3 years ago and it was the best Italian food we have had in Colorado hands down. It is 16 miles from Lake City in the old mining town of Sherman and has a good road from Lake City to it. If you have a SUV or high ground clearance vehicle you could, Coming frim Durango, reach Sherman/Lake City via Cinammon Pass. It is a dirt/jeep road but not of great difficulty and would provide an very nice alternative to the long drive around. I found the website for further information
