Emil-Lene's is a Colorado institution, where the Wild West cowboy history of cattle and hats and six-guns isn't just a theme, but something served right up on the plate alongside the giant steaks, sides of spaghetti and relish trays of crunchy veggies on a bed of ice. The Kucher (now Krause) family has owned this steakhouse since the late '50s, and while there's no hitching post out front to tie up your Toyota to, there is an old Conestoga wagon. Even though the diners boast more bald spots than Stetsons these days, the grub remains a cowtown classic, the atmosphere down-home (complete with a tree in the middle of one dining area) and the kitchen a genuine throwback to the days when beef was always what was for dinner.
Tips from foursquare
Yes the tree is real.
This is a real, old-school steakhouse...over 55 years old. Delicious and unpretentious. One of the top 5 steaks I've ever had and well worth the price.
was thinking about going here until i seen the menu.. 36 dollars for a sirloin? 42 dollars for a T bone? seems way overpriced to me! thanks for the menu 4square.. I'll skip this place!
Although the service, filet mignon and cajun shrimp were pretty good...i am not sure the dinner was worth the $45 per person tab...and we didn't even have drinks.
Try the prime rib, it's amazing.... Skip the spaghetti.
