Address: 520 E. Cooper Ave., Aspen, CO
The 520 Grill has the luxury of being just two blocks away from the gondola. With delicious food, great location, reasonable prices, and friendly service the 520 Grill is a hot spot for the visiting skiers. You can dine in-house, order delivery, and take as a grab and go on your way out to the slopes. You will find your typical American “grill” food at the 520 Grill, but typical does not mean boring. The specialties at 520 include handcrafted burgers, hot dogs, grilled sandwiches, traditional tacos, hearty warming soups, and a good selection of healthy light salads. Don’t forget your side of fresh-cut fries in regular potato or delicious sweet potato.
The menu is just big enough that there is something for everyone on it. If you are looking for something different and out of the ordinary, try a Bison burger! They have a good selection for the kids too, so it is a great place to stop as a family for a quick bite to eat.
What They’re Known for: Great prices. Aspen is not an inexpensive town. It is a thriving tourist spot and that usually means food is a bit more on the expensive side. The 520 Grill does not take advantage of that situation. They offer great traditional American food at affordable prices.
What to Watch for: Hidden costs. Read their menu very carefully. They will offer you choices on side dishes at the register and you may be led to believe it is all part of your meal. However, the menu will show you differently. If you are confused, ask.
Price: $4 – $13
