We were up there today (Marble, Colorado) skiing cream corn snow, stopped in for lunch. He’ll be open Friday/Saturday/Sunday for the time being. Best smoked meat dishes in Western Colorado? Perhaps… They sure taste that way after a morning of backcountry skiing!
For those of you who didn’t track this last year, Woody’s is a bold venture to open a quality restaurant up at the Western Colorado trailhead town of Marble. It’s just like the road end gasthauses in Austria, only the food is a bit different but just as good.
Everyone, please support Woody! The chili special today was only six bucks — worth twice that — and would have cost three times that in Aspen. Lisa had the chili, I had the brisket with potato salad and sweet tea. Outstanding. We were wondering where to ski tomorrow, no question in our minds at this point. Somewhere out of Marble it’ll be, and another stop at the Cook Shack is already on the sched.
Phone numbers to check and see when he’s open full time:
