A fork-to-mouth restaurant. We launched in 2008 as django's restaurant & wine bar in Mt. Crested Butte. Since then, our adventurous menu, eclectic wine list and shared plates have gotten a lot of attention! Each season, our team designs a menu to capture the best of what's unique, what's hot and what's available locally.

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

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!

We love this place. The food is so creative. It is served as small plates and we sat and ordered one to two at a time. The server was very knowledgeable and was able to direct us as we began to wind down the evening. She said, "That's a pretty hardy dish, if you are thinking of a last dish since you are getting full, try the ...." Love that. Not trying to up-sale us. Another bonus. There is no tipping. Brilliant.

First time in Crested Butte and first time in Django’s and we loved it. Our server was super nice and even got my boyfriend a free birthday dessert! We had 3 courses and were plenty full with delicious food. From the shishito peppers to the morel mushrooms with quail eggs and then the duck breast it was a flavor explosion. If you haven’t stopped in here you definitely should!

Fabulous restaurant. Went with a group of 8 ski buddies and asked them to just bring out what they wanted. Every dish was excellent. Everyone left very happy. Expensive but worth it. My only negative is that their NYC-priced cocktails are on the skimpy side.
