Kirby Cosmo’s BBQ Bar
Address: 474 Main St., Minturn
Hours: Mon-Fri, 11:30a-9p; Sat-Sun 3p-9p
This local sports bar serves comfort food that pairs well with cold weather. Chow down on Carolina-style barbecue and classic sides like mac and cheese and baked beans. After a long day of intense calorie burning on the slopes, Kirby Cosmo’s is the perfect place to replenish. Sip a cocktail or beer at the bar while watching sports on one of the TVs. It’s all part of the authentic “pig-pickins” social ambiance that comes with this style of barbecue. Kirby’s is arguably the ultimate apres-ski hangout in Minturn.
The menu is expansive with sandwiches, platters, specialty entrées, but vegetarians are going to be limited to a few salad and pizza selections. There is, however, a kiddies menu for younger members of the family. If it’s your first time to Kirby Cosmo’s and you don’t know what to order, you can try a few different items with the Mix n Munch ’em Meals.
What They’re Known for: The cowboy cup is a crowd favorite. Derived from the concept of 7-layer dip or cowboy dip, this large mug is layered with barbecue chicken, mac and cheese, baked beans and coleslaw- a great all in one meal.
What to Watch for: If you’re on a diet, especially one that has you watching your saturated fat, this is probably not the place for you.
