I love going to The Dog Bar whenever I visit Cuchara. It's mainly about the atmosphere, but the food is good as well. You'll basically find a bar food menu, but the pizzas are good as well. I was glad to see expanded seating on this visit.

I come to the Dog Bar every time I'm in Cuchara. The food is your typical bar food-burgers, pizza, wings, etc. The summer is their busiest season. Lively and casual atmosphere. Great place to hang out in the small town of Cuchara.

We went to the Dog Bar for appetizers. We have been many times over the years and consider it a must when we are in Cuchara. We sat down right after a table of 16 people and waited over 15 minutes without even getting a drink order in. We decided the wait would be too long and left.

We love Cuchara & the Dog Bar! Fun atmosphere, plus you can bring your dog! Great deck/patio. Fun to people watch. Food is yummy & great drinks/cocktails. Service was awesome. Great little place in the mountains!

Stopped by here for lunch. It is a rustic little bar and grill, very busy for an off time. We had the French dip sandwich and a hamburger. Both were excellent, the service was very good. The interior is rustic wood, very warm and cozy.

Outstanding bar and grill at 8,600 ft. Dogs are welcome including us who stay in the dog house most of the time. Food is great, burgers, pizza, sweet potato fries and cold micro beers. Atmosphere is rough Colorado mountain decor and staff is super laid back.....mountain style. Fetch you some.

I hope this encourages the owners to make some changes, because as it stands I have no plans of ever going back with my family. No one was there to welcome us when we arrived, so when I inquired about seating, I was rudely told to pick a table and they would find us. Because we had our dog, we... More

After reading the reviews and knowing there were not many choices in La Veta where we were staying we planned our day so that we would end up in Cuchara which is about 17 miles from La Veta. It was a good plan as we one of the best hamburgers and onion rings that we have ever had. We sat... More
