My wife took me out for a date night. I had the Wagyu smokehouse burger, fries and a bowl of chili.. Cooked perfect, the burger was amazing! The staff was friendly, and knew all the beer on tap when asked. I am making this my regular burger joint.

Brakeman’s Burgers was excellent! The beef was fresh and tasty and they had gluten-free buns! The fried were amazing. They’re like little potato scoops.

Great food, friendly service, the hostess was the greatest, and so much fun! This was our second trip in person, tried new items from the menu, and enjoyed it all. Korean BBQ wings were the best, and thank goodness for the return of the Coal Train Pizza!

We had the Angry Bird and the Smokehouse Burger, both very good, but we really loved the fries! Very tasty! We finished off our meal by sharing a caramel shake, and both agreed it was delicious. Excellent views of the tracks and the mountain. Great service and not too crowded. We'll definitely be back!

Did not follow Covid guidelines very well!
Staff members were huddled together and one decided to hang out at a dining table with his mask off playing on his phone - repeatedly. He should have been sent home instead of milking the clock in front of paying guests.
Server was nice, but not great. I was given the handheld device for payment and he just left it with me. If I wanted to, I could have accessed other tables???
Burgers were ok. Dry and overcooked. Fries were great!
So much potential for that space, but this visit was disappointing. Spent almost $150 for burgers for 4. There are better options in Co Spgs.

Host was very kind! Thank you tall guy.
Best Bartender! Thank you for the perfect old fashions and chat Mark.
Best food! Try their French fries & burgers cooked to perfection.
Awesome service! Jovanna (hope that is spelled correctly) came out at the end of our meal and wanted to know if we enjoyed our experience, it was fantastic, we are admittedly picky. We will be back! The prices were better than fair!
Thank you!!!

Despite hardly having any customers, it took 30 minutes to get a salad. Once we got the pizzas, both were soggy and had to be sent back to cook more. The chef made us get up from the table to get them. Waitress was new (first day on the job) but didn't ask to fill up water glasses and didn't seem to care at all. No plans to go back.

I took my husband here for date night. The staff and the service was great. I loved sitting inside and watching the train go by, and the vagabonds working their way around the fencing that is meant to keep them out of the train's right-of-way. My husband enjoyed his burger however my patty was over cooked, burnt actually and consequently very dry. The adult milkshakes were very decadent yet small for the price. I would consider giving them a second chance mainly because the staff was so friendly and attentive, and I liked the ambiance.

The bar service was fine and the Bullet Old Fashioned was good. The food was slow and a little 'warming lamp' temperature. Noise in the main area was loud. The outdoor bubbles look interesting and we'll try to get one of those next time.

We ate in the heated igloos outside! It was fun. There was a space heater and all of our burgers and the chocolate shake were delicious. We will be back!

Service was not very good. Especially considering the restaurant cannot be at full capacity, you would expect staff to be extra attentive. We weren't greeted or approached for drinks for 10 minutes. Waitress forgot my glass of wine. Forgot my mustard. Another server got my wine, mustard and cleared our plates. Maybe she was just having a bad day, but we were disappointed.

Fries were uniquely amazing. Brakeman's cheese burger was flavorful and with the pepper jack cheese had just the right amount of heat. Cocktails were okay. Mojito was overly sweet.

Food was excellent as was our server. Shakes are yummy too. It took a little longer than we would have liked for our burgers, 40 minutes, but I’m assuming that is because of COVID and reduced staff. We will definitely return.

The brakeman burger was cooked perfectly - a little pink in the middle and very juicy! The fries were very uniquely shaped and very oil free! Delicious! They used reinforced paper straws - no plastic for the landfill. Served on reusable metal trays - no waste! Can't wait to return to try additional menu items!
