Get Ready for A Good Time!
The Pioneer Inn is a classic rough-hewn-wood Bar. There is Pabst Blue Ribbon on tap, regulars who can tell you yarns of the historic past, and the best cheeseburgers in town!
However, what makes the Pioneer Inn stand out from any other place is its rich history in the world of Classic Rock Music. In the early 70's, Jim Guercio founded a popular recording studio in the Colorado Rocky Mountains called the Caribou Ranch.
Recording artists from literally all over the world travelled to this mountain retreat and recorded albums with Guercio like "Rocky Mountain Way" by Joe Walsh, Chicago's "Chicago VI", and Elton John's "Caribou" album. Rock icons like Billy Joel, Rod Stewart, Carole King, Stephen Stills, Waylon Jennings and Dan Fogelberg jammed at the Pioneer Inn regularly.
While other venues still had signs on their front doors stating: "NO LONGHAIRS OR UNKEMPT BEARDS ALLOWED", the Pioneer Inn welcomed them. It was the local bar/restaurant combo that became the "home away from home" for the superstars who recorded at Caribou Ranch. Quality Live Music and good vibes is what the Pioneer Inn is still all about! Check out the live entertainment schedule, and don't miss these special shows.
Really tasty and reasonably priced food. This is a locally owned establishment and has been here for decades. Definitely recommend if you get the chance to stop by. Had the most delicious and filling food in town. Also, very friendly staff too!
The best part was how the staff was so energetic and friendly. Even though it was busy, soembodoy was always there to help at the right time. We really enjoyed the food as well.
I was digging this place from the start. The atmosphere was awesome and the employees took great care of our group. The food was supberb and the drinks were reasonably priced. Overall a great neighborhood spot and looking forward to future visits!
I've only been a few times, so rating may change, but this place has been a pleasant surprise. The food is good and you can get drinks after work. Place is nice inside will definitely recommend.
The food was delicious and portions are huge. We ordered sandwiches and needless to say, way too much food for two people. A lot was taken home. Our waitress was very attentive and served food promptly. She has a good sense of humor. I would highly recommend this establishment.
Great place to meet with friends for a quick bite and few drinks. Their service is quick and decent. Sit in the place and have good and friendly service.
