No-frills, charming and personable. Food is not a perfect 10 but it sure does come darn close. Many have hailed Colorado's as the Best Restaurant in Sanford and while that might be hyperbolic, it darn well deserves consideration. Not sure why it took me so long to eat there, but I certainly will be returning.

Very easy to make reservations, table ready on time, food very good. I asked for extra napkins, the waitress brought me one small paper napkin, did not bring my partner any. Did not ask if that was OK or if I needed additional napkins, just laid it down and walked off. She did keep my tea glass filled, that was good. Waitresses running around like crazy but the two at the front desk just stood there and talked to each other for at least 30 minutes. One of them finally cleaned off a table in front of where we were sitting. I am a manager and my motto is "If you have time to lean, you have time to clean." I have been to your restaurant several times, love it and will continue to choose it for dinner when I want a great steak. dh

We are long-time customers of Colorado's and go there when we can. Food is always excellent and the service as well. The prices for quality food are reasonable comparatively speaking. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone.

This is my new favorite place to go my only regret is it took me 20 years to go and fine out how great the food and service is. Portions are huge and every thing we tried was outstanding. I traveled the country for work for 19 years eating out 3 to 5 days a week and have favorite places across the country this is central Florida's pick.

Colorado's Prime Steak's menu includes homemade food. Their soups, salad dressings and appetizers are made fresh - nothing from the freezer. Service is friendly, the food is good and it's the perfect place to go with the family or a group of friends. The restaurant is old but cozy.

Best steak, prime rib, and filet values in Seminole County. Excellent quality for the money. The aged prime rib end cut is a must. We go once a month and have never had a bad meal.

I had a great birthday party dinner with almost 30 people. We only had two servers, but they did an awesome job. Thank you for setting up my balloons, decorations, and serving the cake!!! My guests who had not dined here before were impressed. This place "rocks" in Sanford. Congratulations on 25 years of great service!

The food was good, service was great. The decor is dated but clean. Menu has many great options. The salad was fresh and dressing was good. Our steaks were a little dry and sides were good. Nothing fancy, very 80s decor but good food and service. I would recommend it.

Steaks were over cooked and not the way they were ordered. Second visit for a birthday dinner and it was not as good as our first a few months ago. Chef must be different or not consistent.

The steaks here are great. The smoked prime rib is excellent. Service is prompt and friendly. Don't forget the bread! You have to ask for it and it's worth every bite. The prices are reasonable. We dine here often and have never been disappointed.

The food is always excellent!!! Their Salads are always so fresh and all of the salads are wonderful. We usually order the crispy shrimp. You get a Big helping and the shrimp are large too. This is a Steak House....but the Shrimp is wonderful. Their Baked Potato is almost like mashed potatoes....they are awesome. I really can not say enough about this great find in Sanford, FL. We Love this place and when we have company in town...it is always on our list!!

A party of six of us went on a Sunday evening and the food was a bit above average and the service from the wait staff was good but the kitchen was extremely slow. The dining room was only a bit over half full and our entrees took over 35 minutes after our appetizers came out. Not what any of us were expecting with how empty the dining room felt. I'd go back for the food but now know to be prepared for a long wait...
