This place was so good we have already eaten there twice on our trip! The service is impeccable and they are so kind. Easy to order and wonderful food! I went back specifically for the braised ribs and beet salad. You should definitely eat here if in Created Butte. Make a reservation though!
Had our 49th wedding anniversary dinner there on the patio by the creek. Food was outstanding, service was perfect and listened to the creek. All and all a perfect dinner!!
Excellent restaurant - absolutely loved this place. The food was so good! A bit on the pricey side but well worth it. Chatted with a local family seated next to us and they said it’s their favorite restaurant in CB.
Will definitely return.
A rapturous treat! The food, off a somewhat small though very creative small plates menu, was nearly impeccable (the duck dish was a mild and pricey disappointment) and the wine pairings were excellent. Waitstaff were very attentive throughout. Only "nicks" was the absence of bread (not offered) to sop up the yummy sauce from the octopus dish and that we had to request new plates which should have been provided automatically for each small plate. Still, this was a very memorable special occasion perfect for foodie types. Also, the creek-side patio location was also fabulous.
Super friendly service with people that you could tell were passionate about the food they were preparing. Everything was delicious!
The food was good. Interesting. The policy of the restaurant is to force people to use their on line app to place your order. It doesn’t work. I was there a year ago and it’s exactly the same. The app doesn’t work now. It didn’t work a year ago. Quite off putting. I may not return.
Food was awesome as well as the experience!
It’s our favorite in Crested Butte!
Limited menu options, especially for children. Portions were small and expensive. Flavor was great but with these prices I don’t want to look at dead bugs on the windowsill.
We had a couple of small plates between the two of us. The food was really good. We sat outside by the river. No one was around , so it felt like the service and food were prepared just for us. I would highly recommend Dango’s.
Love this restaurant! Been here many times, it was so great to see how well they adjusted to Covid restrictions and precautions. Sat outside by the creek, ordered all drinks and food from our phone, and paid that way as well. Food was delicious as always.
Always love the food and atmosphere at Django’s! Best food in CB by far!
Great food. Wonderful service. The new app they are using to order menu items is really easy to use.
Can't say enough good things about Django's especially during this time of COVID-19. We asked to sit outside despite the chance of rain, which it did. Cute deck on the creek with tables appropriately spaced.
We were offered every accommodation and the service was fantastic. We liked ordering item by item from our phone and that there is no tipping. I would not have known in advance from the prices.
Everything we had was excellent, the green bean salad with pine nuts was amazing, the flat bread was great (Vegetarian) and the halibut with blackberries was an unexpected treat.
Highly recommend it and we will return (and inside is charming and we look forward to eating inside on our next visit to Crested Butte when we feel safe!
Fabulous food, I’m having trouble choosing my favorite. Maybe the duck leg which was done to perfection or the lamb. The HT cocktail was delicious as well.
Fantastic experience from service to food! It’s our first
visit to CB with our three boys and we all had plenty of choices and so much to share. Sat outside by creek. Service was prompt, attentive, and friendly. Food was superb! Thank you so much for a wonderful experience!
During the pandemic, we’re only eating outdoors, even when it’s 59 degrees and rain is forecasted, which was the case on this night. We ordered from our phones and Chris was there to help. I whined about being chilly, so he graciously moved the heater closer making the creek side dinner cozy and perfect. We shared all of our plates and voted the duck leg as the big winner. Nothing wasn’t delicious.....everything was fabulous. I don’t write reviews often but wanted to for D’Jangos just because they’re working really hard keeping the dream alive. Go there and smile.
My husband and I make a point to treat ourselves to Django’s every time we visit Crested Butte (which is regularly). We have never been disappointed. The food is phenomenal and service is professional, but friendly and attentive without being bothersome. We love to try new dishes here because we know that it will be good no matter what. Our favorite repeat dish is the Boneless Colorado Short Ribs. They handled new challenges due to COVID beautifully and we felt well cared for. Do yourself a favor and eat here!
Every item we tried was so fresh and delicious, wonderful place to eat, a real treat!
We ordered several small plates and an entree which were unique and very satisfying. The service staff were really nice, but they have yet to work out the kinks of the phone-based ordering system. Once they get up the learning curve, they should get 5 stars.
Always slow and unorganized. Seems like the guy in charge just talks to people with his friendly voice and you forget you haven’t eaten in an hour. Food is outstanding but management is poor. Waiters are over worked and must keep patrons happy waiting and waiting. Since tip is included in price luckily they don’t get stuck with bad tips since the flow is so horrible. I’ve been here 5 times and have never had a good experience but i love the food. So Covid is not to blame this time around.
Vacation dining. Lovely, charming service that helped us understand new method of viewing/menu and ordering. Food was outstanding!! Crispy Brussels Sprouts, Ahi tuna, Spanish octopus, and striped bass. All served tapas style. Timely service and overall a delightful evening. Kudos to Django’s for performing well in difficult times.
Excellent meal! The lamb and Duck were especially delicious.
Delicious creekside dinner under the twinkling lights. Excellent service and waitstaff. Food is very good!
We love coming here each time we are in CB. Fabulous service and amazing food! This was our first dining experience during COVID and it was very relaxed and safe. Process for ordering and payment online was very easy and we loved sitting outside creekside. Thanks for a lovely evening!!
Sat outside there were ants on the outdoors patio, however pleasant hearing the water. Food was good but we only had drinks, a salad and vegetable.
Food was good, not outstanding, but not a good value. Very small portions.
We love this restaurant! The food is excellent and it’s nice to share. The service is friendly and great.
The food was overpriced and not very good. We were disappointed.
I don't want to pay to sit down at a restaurant, order online, pay online, have a menu online.....not the experience I was looking for. Every other restaurant in Crested Butte had a better experience with safety.
Django’s always delivers. Never had a meal there that was even just good. Always excellent. A bit pricey, but always top notch.
They have great systems in place to make this feel like a special night out and safe at the same time. The octupus is the way to go, but all the food is excellent.
This was our first time to eat out in about 4 months due to coronavirus. We were happy to see that Django's had patio seating on Coal Creek (on the other side of the creek from the restaurant, in front of Rijks gallery). We reserved a patio seat online, arrived early, and were seated promptly. All of the staff were masked throughout, and our seat was well spaced from others.
Ordering at Django's is now accomplished on your phone, after scanning a QR code at the table. Although the menu and drink selection is somewhat restricted due to the need to keep things simple and contact-less at this time, there was plenty of variety for us. When the ordering app acted a little wonky, our server helped to get things working right.
The rustic flatbread and seared ahi tuna were terrific for starters, and the crispy brussels sprouts and duck leg also impressed. The kitchen and servers paced the orders well, not too fast, just right on time. The grilled pound cake topped with strawberries and whipped cream was a sweet ending.
We enjoyed it all the way around and hope to be back later this summer.
Great creative food. Will go back next time we are in Crested Butte. Best restaurant there.
Django’s ordering-online-while seated-at your table protocol was a new experience for us, but it worked well. The online cocktail menu was limited, but we were able to order their specialty old fashions in person - and they were delicious. The pacing of the dishes was excellent and our party shared the berry beet salad, the grilled octopus, duck leg, flatbread, lamb and the chocolate cake. We enjoyed it all.
Nice creek side table. Friendly staff.
First night open in awhile and only order option was via phone and was a fairly pesky system.
Additionally, manager (owner?) seemed to be the only one who new how to navigate the ordering process. Seemed unnecessarily complex and staff (our server anyway) was not versed in its nuances which was magnified by our distance from the main building/always needing the manager to help with ordering.
Food took a long time, but was tasty. I'm guessing bugs will be worked out going forward.
The creek-side patio was a beautiful place to take in a wonderful dinner.
Wonderful amazing food! Very hospitable and thoughtful!
My family has been coming to created butte for 20 years. Tried Djangos for the first time this spring break and we have been missing out. Carefully curated menu. Incredible. We went with our kids 13,11,10,7. They all loved the small plate sharing experience. This is the best menu and restaurant in CB! Just wish we had not walked by it all these years and it took way too long to give it try. Five star!
