Hailed as the most historic restaurant in the Vail Valley, the Minturn Saloon has been open since 1976 ? but the building that houses it has gone through many incarnations in its century-old existence. Anyone looking to getting away from some of the upscale restaurants and bars of nearby Vail Village might appreciate the saloon's cozy, laid-back vibe. Some of the Minturn's specialties include Mexican dishes, barbecued chicken, ribs, steak and quail. The bar serves a wide variety of tequilas and margaritas alongside a selection of Colorado beers.
