At Burgers & Barley, just because it’s fast doesn’t mean it’s not made fresh. This quick takeout or dine-in restaurant in Prospector offers house-made specialty burgers alongside an impressive beer selection. The 8-ounce burgers are made with fresh, local beef and served on bread made by a local bakery. Whether you are a meat lover or a vegetarian, or anything in between, you will find a large selection of items to choose from, including veggie burgers and chicken sandwiches. Specialty burgers offer unique options, but there are also snacks (think corn dog nuggets and fried green beans), salads, soups and mac and cheese. The prices are very reasonable (nothing on the menu goes over $15) to feed a family of any size. Hungry for dessert? The fried Oreos are hard to beat.
Burgers & Bourbon offers the best of what we love about classic American cuisine: gourmet burgers, fresh-cut fries, hand-spun shakes (both spiked and classic) and craft spirits. The restaurant’s signature burgers are made fresh with a proprietary blend of the finest farm-raised beef, topped with a selection of local artisanal cheeses and served on freshly baked potato buns. The extensive spirit collection celebrates America’s distillers, both old and new, whose artful techniques produce a stunning array of craft spirits. In tribute to their passion behind the craft, the bartenders serve iconic drinks inspired by old-fashioned favorites, like the Old-Fashioned, Mint Julep and Manhattan. With more than 200 bourbons and whiskeys, the collection will impress the most selective spirit aficionados. Vegetarian and seafood options are available, too.
Collie’s lives up to its name as a sports bar with numerous flat-screen televisions, an inviting bar and a pool table, but the food is above and beyond what you’d expect from your typical watering hole. Almost half of the menu is house-smoked barbecue made with house rub and sauces, and it’s all smoked in a 500-pound smoker in the kitchen. The smoked brisket is a favorite, and with some luck you’ll get there in time to score some of the burnt ends before they run out. The rest of the menu feeds your cravings for great burgers, sandwiches and crispy steak fries. Take a midday break for lunch and fuel up for the slopes or stop in for après ski and quench your thirst with over 80 selections of beer.

There is a definitive nod to the famed foodie culture in Australia, from where the owners hail.

Don’t miss the hearty grain salads, but if it is a burger you crave, there is always that option too. While each dish is satisfying, nothing will leave you weighed down. There are plenty of grab-and-go options and a smoothie of the day, too, if you want something quick.
