Ridgway is a special destination for dining and shopping. Find out why.
Ridgway has been recognized as a top foodie destination in the state with six places taking top billing. Spend an early morning at Provisions at the Barbershop — you can’t get your haircut anymore, but you can get flaky pastries amid a very Instagramable backdrop. Lunch should be had at one of the top 15 mouthwatering taco shops in Colorado (according to Out There Colorado), Taco Del Gnar. We recommend the Drippy Mitch, aka the sloppy joe of tacos, with a side of queso blanco. Round out your day with stuffed Peppadew peppers, margherita pizza and a crisp Western Lager at Colorado Boy Pub & Brewery. Find a list of all Ridgway restaurants and their winter operations on our website.

Spending your vacation dollars at our unique stores, dining establishments, accommodations, and services preserves our community’s special character by supporting our economy.
According to Colorado Small Business Development Center, when visitors and residents spend $100 locally, $70 stays in the local community. Shopping local increases employment, the buying power of local workers, tax revenue, and government funds for long-term investments like infrastructure and education. Don’t forget: gift cards are also an excellent way to shop local and keep these dollars in the local community.
