What? A restaurant?
Yes, the Skirted Heifer in downtown Colorado Springs is a popular restaurant nestled among the businesses, shops and restaurants.
The 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 http://skirtedheifer.com/#story.
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 had a line to the door, during a perceived non-rush time. This confirmed to me at the onset that this must be worth the wait. You can figure that out easily by checking on where the locals eat.
I 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.
Remember Guy Fieri on Food Network’s Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives? He has been at Skirted Heifer too. This Food Network link provides some basic information and comments from other guests. https://www.foodnetwork.com/restaurants/co/colorado-springs/skirted-heifer-restaurant
