Black Hat Cattle

26295 Hilltop Dr Kittredge, CO 80457

Black Hat Cattle is a fancier steakhouse that can be found in the Genesse area. This feels like a restaurant straight out of a magazine, and we love the ambience of the dark wood and dim lighting here. The Cowboy Drumstick is a dry aged French cut bone-in rib eye that the owner hand cuts daily, and seared at 1800 degrees. The wedge salad is the perfect way to get your vegetables in before your amazing steak, and the drinks are always done with a heavy pour. You're really going to want to try out their popular scallop appetizer.

Our next choice here is a traditional American burger and bar establishment, and we can't get enough of the prime location on the river here. The french dip sandwich here is delicious, as is the pulled pork sandwich, as well as the green chili covered breakfast burrito. All of the servers are notably friendly, and the fact that you can be seated right next to the natural beauty that's so prevalent in this area is always another positive.
