Angel's Hollow - A Breckenridge Treasure

Just a block off Main Street is one of Breckenridge’s best kept secret treasures: An old Hell’s Angels biker bar and hangout turned gourmet restaurant. On a Saturday night when the rest of the town’s restaurants are quoting you and your family 45 minutes to 2 hour waits, Angel’s Hollow welcomes. The restaurant itself is a little off the beaten path, but the food is some of the best in Breckenridge. But probably the best part about Angel’s Hollow are the owners: Lee and Debbie are exceptional characters. Lee doubles (or quadruples rather) as the host, bartender, waiter, and chef. You’ll often find him walking around the restaurant singing and screaming to the music, refilling drinks without you having to ask for another (be careful) and bossing his waiters around. Lee’s antics are completely ridiculous, but at the same time totally welcoming.

His wife Debbie fills the well-organized and calmer role at the restaurant. You can often find her at the bar pouring drinks and chatting up a storm. As crazy as Lee can get in the dining room, don’t be fooled. The chef graduated from the Culinary Institute of America, one of the most prestigious culinary schools in the country. His food has a downhome/southwestern/refined feel to it. The dishes are well thought out and the portions are gigantic; you most definitely won’t go home hungry. If you’re the adventurous kind, you should certainly order one of Lee’s famous margaritas. I’ve never been sure what’s in them, but I know there’s at least 4-5 different liquors, and it’s made with fresh limes; no sweet and sour here.  The dining experience at Angel’s Hollow is fun, funny, and completely out of the ordinary, but not to be missed. So, if you’re okay with a little bit of craziness, some crudeness, and some delicious foods and spirits, get yourself to Angel’s Hollow!
