Eat Here: Front Range Barbecue

March 9, 2013 by

Colorado is known for it’s micro brews. It’s not known for is barbecue. But after you eat at Front Range Barbecue, you’ll remember it for both.

Front Range Barbecue, or “Frange,” as the locals call it, is nestled at the base of Pikes Peak in the town of Old Colorado City, just next to Colorado Springs. When you walk in the door of the rustic, converted house-turned-restaurant, ¬†you’ll feel like you’re down south, in mama’s kitchen.

The staple menu items include fried okra, ribs and brisket plates, Cajun catfish, and buffalo or elk burgers. If the chef, who’s from Alabama, is feeling special, he might make his famous boiled peanuts. You don’t want to miss those!

All the meats on the menu are locally sourced from organic, free-range farms, and for the vegetarian in the group, they offer a killer spicy black bean burger. The beer list, which changes weekly, features mostly Colorado brews including New Belgium, Bristol, and Avery beers. A meal for 2, with beers, will run you about $30.

Want to get a feel for the locals scene? Stop in on a Wednesday night for live bluegrass music on the heated patio. Get there early if you want to get a seat. Kick back and “Frange it up!”
