“Superb burgers and more!”
Over the years, this location has hosted many different restaurants, but this is by far the best. One of the smallest places in town, it offers one of the very best burger selections as well as great salads and other sandwich items. The service is superb and the prices reasonable. These owners know something about running a successful restaurant … serve great tasting food in a friendly manner and charge a fair price. We will keep coming back!

“The best burgers in Steamboat!”
We eat here whenever we can. The burgers are delicious and they offer great mud season specials…Order onion rings with your burger for a real treat!


“Delish, great burgers!”
We were lucky to go on BOGO Tuesday so our party of 6 ate for $70 including tip. It’s small so get there early but it would be worth the wait. Quick service and the food came out exactly as we ordered and fast. Definitely make it a choice for dinner.


“Boys in Steamboat”
Great burgers!!! A Monday evening in the off-season (4th week of October) and the place was packed at 6:15pm. Tables turn fairly fast, but obviously a very popular place with the locals – which tells you something! Will be back next year

“Absolutely delicious burgers”
I ate there for the first time back in June and when we were back in Steamboat in June, it was a “must go again”. The burgers are delicious, service is good and it’s just a fun atmosphere. Onion rings are also very good.


“Good eats and good service”
Had a delicious cheeseburger. Service was great. They were friendly. Had to wait but that’s because the place was busy.


“Spring break 2016 ”
Great burgers and great service! The funnel cake fries were sooooo awesome! The place is small so that is the only issue I could see. But we went at an odd hour so no problem.

“Best bang for your buck!”
We come from Minnesota where we know burgers and let me tell you, they make great burgers!! Very reasonably priced, fantastic burgers and very friendly staff makes this very unassuming restaurant (located in a house off the main drag) a real gem. This will definitely become a “must visit” for our future trips!

So many unique burger options! The three of us each got something totally different including a burger that had Mac n cheese on it and another with peanut butter! All were awesome! We each got different types of fries too and all were amazing especially the sweet potato fries that had sugar on them, very yummy!


“Great Burger ”
Fries excellent Sweet potato fries excellent Burgers all excellent (buzz light year) Bigerita excelled Great for family Reasonably priced! Tip( kids burgers are the same size as adult And cheaper)

Best place for burger in the US. I have had them everywhere and this is the killer. Off the main drag in Steamboat. Got recommendation and was told to go upstairs to the bar. Turns out it was happy hour so half price beers. Had the twilight zone burger. Unbelievable. Peanut butter,
Bacon, siracha mayonnaise,
Tomato and lettuce. Total bill $19 for two craft beers, burger and onion rings.

When you come to Steamboat, you can go to some club-like restaurant that you found on Open Table and which require reservations, or you can pretend you aren’t in New York/Chicago/LA and actually came all the way to Steamboat , CO and have some amazing food, served by awesome locals like Robert, in the coolest throwback atmosphere around.

I personally come to Steamboat for Steamboat, not skiing all day with big city ego, stress, and pretense in the town afterward. Backdoor Grill delivered. The bread is non GMO, the meat is local grass-fed, and the fries are hand cut. I have had burgers all over the world and all across this country, and I can honestly say the G6 (on Bison with bacon) was the best burger I’ve ever eaten- I want to go full glutton and have 3 of them tonight. Robert was the coolest, most laid back server and was more on top of his game and knew his restaurant and menu better than what I’ve experienced in a number of “fancy” restaurants I’ve been to. To complete the experience, the atmosphere and music was perfect after a day skiing when I was looking to have some good food, relax, and be able to have a conversation without yelling.

To sum it up, if you just want to ski in Colorado then go pretend you’re back in the city, go make a reservation at one of the developer restaurants that replaced places like Backdoor. If you want to actually SKI in Colorado and experience Steamboat as it was meant to be experienced, Backdoor is the place to be. Just make sure you leave the ego (and the noise) outside.

I’ve had some of the best burgers I’ve ever had since moving to Steamboat a couple years ago. Then a few days ago I went to Back Door Grill and WOW! Hands down not only the best in Steamboat but the best I’ve had in the U.S. So good going back again tonight!

“Cool place, amazing burgers!”
I highly recommend Back Door to anyone who is craving a really good burger made with fresh, high quality beef. This place has a relatively simple menu of burgers. The focus is really on the quality of the beef more than anything, and it really is impressive…

“Come here for a nice lunch!”
The local’s special was delicious and freshly made. This restaurant truly values the locals and tourists alike. The service was great and the outdoor seating was perfect.The owners and waitstaff were understanding and eager to fix things after I experienced a disappointing meal here, which is why I have returned.

“Don’t miss the Twilight Zone”
Yummy! I had the Twilight Zone, a burger with peanut butter, sriracha sauce, Anne bacon. It was delicious! They have a decent selection of craft beer bottles and service is friendly and fast.

“Umami deliciousness :)”
This place is casual, friendly, warm, inviting, and DELICIOUS! The ingredients are quality and really show through in the flavors you get……honestly, Back Door Grill has ruined me for fast-food burgers FOREVER. Get the Umami burger, you will NOT regret it. For some reason I keep dreaming about burgers ever since I’ve been there……:) Enjoy!

Alden G., Steamboat Springs, CO

High-quality hamburgers and breakfast burritos. Daily burger specials run about $10 with fries and a drink. Need extra protein? They’ll put peanut butter on your burger. Root beer floats. Located downhill (behind) Ghost Ranch. Across the street from Ciao Gelato.

“Best Burgers I have had in Steamboat”

A relatively small restaurant with big tasting burgers. I have eaten my share of burgers in the ‘Boat, but the Back Door Grill wins the prize for the best tasting burgers in town. They also serve breakfast and have a great menu including salads, sandwiches, burgers with many options, and desserts. The prices are reasonable and the staff was great. Highly recommended.

I have always wanted a five guys in steamboat but this is better. From their fries to the milkshake. No matter what you get it it all phenomenal. Best burger in town and reasonably priced.

The restaurant is a street up from main street, and though it is small in size, the food was BIG on flavor!!! We had a bacon double cheeseburger, a kids corn dog, and a burger with PB&J + creamy sriracha sauce – all were WINNERS on flavor & wow factor!!

“Casual Burger Joint”
Sat @ the bar for a quick bite to eat. Friendly, welcoming staff (I forgot my glasses & one of the wait staff helped me read the menu). Had a great flame broiled burger & onion rings. Had my favorite beer on the menu! Good value!

“Great Burger, Simple Place”
It took us a while to find this place because it’s not where Google Maps says it is…BUT we persevered. When we got to the place, we were greeted with a nice small dining room with a very informal atmosphere. The Burgers we ordered were just as we had ordered, good portion sizes and accompanied by very nicely done sides….

“If You Want a Great Burger in Steamboat, This is the Place to Go”
While on a Steamboat Ski Trip last week, my party of 5 was looking for a good burger. Asking around town, we were referred to the Back Door Grill. We went there and were extremely pleased. My burger was great, as was the chili I ordered as an appetizer…

steamboatskigal, Steamboat Springs, Colorado

“GREAT sandwich!”

On the recommendation of a few friends who said this place had the best burger they’ve ever had, I stopped in for lunch. I chose the chicken club and it was fantastic! The chicken was juicy, lots of bacon, and the lettuce is shredded – I loved that. Definitely a great place to eat!
