Building a new home in the area we were delighted to find this wonderful place. The atmosphere is casual comfortable but cozy enough with enough ambiance to fit most any occasion. The food was excellent and the service very pleasant and efficient. I had the grilled salmon salad, my husband had the shrimp scampi and stuffed mushrooms, um good!!! The menu is varied and one can enjoy a variety of types of food as well as traditional meals. The meats and fish are of top quality, fresh and the chef did a remarkable job. Food presentation was superb! Hours are limited to evenings but for those locals or tourists looking for some great food at reasonable prices you need to support this wonderful venue!!!

Twenty two hungry bicyclists descended on the restaurant. Two servers took our orders and didn't mix anything up. The barbecue brisket sandwich and sweet potato fries were excellent. The other twenty one diners cleaned their plates. I also had a glass of good Riesling . Everyone was happy.

Saw the reviews while searching for a dinner venue on a stopover from TX to Crested Butte. Purgatoire on Elm did not disappoint. From happy hour drink specials through our entrees, everything was delightful. Our party had fried chicken, fried cod, chicken Alfredo and a New York strip. All were flavorful, served hot and nicely proportioned. The charming venue is an old train station, and the staff including Rick, the owner, were fabulous. Highly recommend!

We had a chance to visit the Purgatoire on Elm in Trinidad a few months ago. I ordered the rack of ribs, not getting my hopes up to high as this part of the country is not known for its BBQ. I was surprised at how meaty the ribs were, cooked to perfection. The fact that I could get sweet potato fries was an added bonus.
We have eaten there several times after and have always had a good meal. But my favorite is still the rack of ribs!
