4 Breckenridge Restaurants To Enjoy This Summer

By Caitlin Row | Tuesday, April 23, 2019

Breckenridge isn't just a mountainous playground for outdoor activities; it's also a culinary destination offering a variety of dining options and price points, all of which are delicious.

Here are four top picks.

1. Breckenridge Distillery

Main Street Tasting Room: 137 S. Main Street, Breckenridge
Distillery Retail Shop & Restaurant: 1925 Airport Road, Breckenridge

Breckenridge Distillery just might be the highest distillery in America, at least that's what its website says. Its main water supply is melting snow, and they make gin, vodka, bitters, rum, whiskey and more.

This Breckenridge restaurant and distillery offers distillery tours and after-hours tours. Its Airport Road restaurant features shareable snacks and starters, like Hipster Fries and Brussels sprouts made with Breckenridge Bourbon, and American plates like a D.B. Burger and a Bourbon Float.

Reservations are accepted. Head online to make one: breckenridgedistillery.com/restaurant.

2. Pho Real

301-2 N. Main Street, Breckenridge

Pho Real, a casual Vietnamese restaurant, is my favorite lunch stop in Breckenridge. 

For newbs, pho (pronounced fuh) is a traditional Vietnamese rice-noodle soup and it's delicious. Click here for the menu.

I always get the pho with meatballs and "everything," including jalapenos, and I love every slurp of it. It's a savory and tangy dish that really fills me up.

This Breckenridge restaurant offers indoor and outdoor seating. Reservations aren't available, but take-out is.

3. Sancho Tacos & Tequilas

500 S. Main Street, Breckenridge

Sancho Tacos & Tequilas is primarily a lunch and dinner spot, though it does offer brunch on the weekends.

What I love about it are its creative tacos. Most recently I enjoyed two taco types: the Barbacoa (made with chile-braised beef cheek and tomatillo salsa) and Sweet Potato (made with sauteed poblano, onion, chile aioli and more). Click here for the menu.

Patrons enjoy a casual atmosphere and a lot of tequila options. Reservations at this Breckenridge restaurant are not necessary. Learn more by visiting sanchotaco.com.

4. Carboy Winery

103 N. Main Street, Breckenridge

Carboy Winery is a winery and tasting room connected to The Gold Pan Pan Saloon, a historic restaurant and saloon located on Main Street.

Carboy offers wine on tap, along with a variety of shared apps, meat and cheese boards, and entrees. I suggest trying a Wine Maker's Flight. Click here to view the menu.

Daily wine-tasting tours are offered at noon and 3 p.m. RSVP by emailing or calling: Breckenridge@carboywinery.com, (970) 771-3944.

Reservations are not required, though it's best to call ahead if you have a big group. Learn more by visiting carboywinery.com/breckenridge.
