Skirted Heifer 5.jpgWhat?  A restaurant?

Yes, the Skirted Heifer in downtown Colorado Springs is a popular restaurant nestled among the businesses, shops and restaurants.

Skirted Heifer 1.jpgThe restaurant prides itself in being an eco-friendly place, including the floors being made of bamboo.  The beef is local grass-fed.  Their story and eco-friendly facts are included at

We almost passed the restaurant when trying to find it as we were traveling in the downtown environment – trying to watch traffic, people and stores.

Skirted Heifer 7.jpgI wasn’t sure what the Skirted Heifer burger was but I ordered it.  The cheese was flattened and spread outside the bun, covering the patty like a skirt.  Interesting concept.  I had never heard of this before.

So, if you are around Colorado Springs and would like a good hometown burger, fries and custard cuisine, Skirted Heifer is worth the try.  We enjoyed it.
