Located in a small mining town, we took the last table. The only open seats were at the bar. Ordered the Mix N Match plate with North Carolina Pork and Brisket. I asked for fried green tomatoes and mac n cheese as sides but got jalapeño hush puppies which was fine with me. We ordered pig wings because we never... More

...this would be one star. We were in Leadville for the afternoon and had read a bunch of excellent reviews about this restaurant, so we decided to give it a whirl. We arrived at 8:10, nearly an hour before closing. We ordered beers and were served promptly, then ordered dinner, which also came quickly. I'm sorry to say, that's about... More

We absolutely love Kirby Cosmo's. Great BBQ, beer selection and sides. They are always consistent in the food quality, presentation and prep. Which can be challenging in the valley, we've found.There is something for everyone on the menu, even for a pescatarian like myself. Staff and owner are amazing! The local and relaxed atmosphere is one we crave and enjoy.... More

Great little place with very good BBQ, beer, sides and even a good salad for my wife. Owner chatted with us a while, giving recommendations for stuff to do in area. Super friendly and great feel. Will definitely come back!

If you prefer a good, home town restaurant over the glitz of Vail, Kirby Cosmo's is the place for you. At 5 miles tot he west, it very much caters to the locals, which gives it its charm. The food is simple, pletniful and great; BBQ, ribs, beans, slaw and cornbread. The atmosphere is comfortable. Its looks from the outside... More

Had the pulled pork sandwich with Mac n cheese side (with jalapenos! Genius!). So heartwarming and delicious after a day on the slopes. Also came again and had the Kirby burger. Again, delicious! Highly recommended. Seemed to be a lot of locals, which is also a great sign 😀

We were visiting family in Edwards and were looking for a "local" bar/tavern for a late lunch. Very friendly owner and staff. Excellent burgers and the fries were killer. The owner suggested we try the Deep Eddy Pink Grapefruit Vodka - good recommendation! We want to go back for the BBQ - it looked (and smelled great!) Relaxed atmosphere as... More

Friendly atmosphere, great bbq. We stop here all the time to enjoy friends and family. It's one of a kind. Always a kick for a small town bistro. A nice place to enjoy Minturn and mountain summertime!!

Had half order of St. Louis style BBQ ribs, cornbread, mac n cheese, coleslaw. Delicious. We were lucky that most of the Saturday night crowd was in Vail for the free concert.
