Shooters Grill in Rifle, Colorado with Zeb and Chanel

We are hungry.   Chanel and I, Zeb the Duck, asked our moms when we would eat.   They said  we were stopping in Rifle, Colorado and would eat at Shooters Grill.

Shooters Grill, Rifle, CO

Great news!   I have been to Shooters Grill.   The people are friendly and the food is delicious.   This is a photo of Rifle’s main street, in the summer.

This really is an old west town with great brick buildings.   But it was February this time, so cold and snow dominated.   Let’s go inside and look around Shooters Grill.

Welcome to Shooters Grill

I like the Welcome Sign inside.   You probably noticed the large wooden carved bear at the entrance.   Inside are more carved wooden decorations.

Wood carvings inside Shooters Grill

Much of the work carving these wooden figures is done with chain saws.   Really interesting to watch.   Shooters Grill is a little different than most restaurants.    Guns are welcome.

Guns are welcome. But, be responsible

At Shooters Grill the waitresses are encouraged to wear a pistol, usually a Glock, in a holster on their hip.    All are trained and licensed to carry a weapon.   Also classes in gun safety are regularly scheduled here.    All are welcome and learning how to use a gun properly and safely is very important.   No alcohol is served at Shooters Grill.   But delicious food is served.   Chanel the Bear is sitting on Charlotte’s gun.

Waitresses at Shooters Grill

Charlotte’s daughter owns Shooters Grill.   I, Zeb the Duck, am with our waitress.   This is our food from  previous visit.

Yum!

The portions are large and everything is delicious.   Mom and I usually attack the French Fries first.   We love them, especially while they are still hot.   Looking around Shooters, we feel the atmosphere is very patriot, freedom loving and very friendly.

The flag is displayed with the pledge written.   This photo is great.

A hot bath in the early days.   Here I am from an earlier visit with my cousin, Eider Duck.

The waitresses have always been so nice and seem to like ducks and bears.   The conversation was great and our food was delicious, but Chanel and I have to head to our next Colorado town.  The old town of Rifle has great street sculptures.

Chanel and I enjoyed this horse.   When in Rifle, Exit 90 on Interstate 70, be sure to stop at Shooters for a tasty meal and great conversation.

Zeb and Eider really thought this horse was great.

Ducks can sit on the feet of a horse and not be afraid.  The Big Kids Corner Bar also looked inviting.

Maybe another time we will visit the Big Kids Corner Bar

We drove out of town to visit one of the many parks.   The lake is so refreshing.   Just like you would expect to see in the Rocky Mountains.

Love the lake

The name, Walleye Parking Lot, made us smile.   The humans used to fish for walleyes in northern Wisconsin when they were kids.   The blue color of this mountain lake is just beautiful.

Incredible blue lake

We love our Colorado lakes.   Some of our distant relatives are swimming out there.

We tame ducks like our water a little warmer for swimming.  Isn’t this some of the clearest water you have ever seen?

We can see all the rocks and smaller pebbles on the bottom of the lake.   As we left this park heading back to I-70, this mailbox caught our attention.

Great mailbox!

We loved it!   You should visit Colorado soon.   It is a great state.

is a friendly restaurant, but it is a little different than most restaurants we have visited.   The waitresses all carry guns on their hip.   Really!   Let’s go inside.  Everybody here was so nice and so friendly.   We admired this welcome sign.

They do not serve alcohol at Shooters, but our soft drinks were big and ice cold.   We wandered around this restaurant.   This picture of a man taking a bath in a tub is so typical of the early west.

Isn’t it great?   Zeb and Eider believe them when they say No Trespassing.

These signs are serious!   Zeb and Eider like this sign saying guns are welcome.

Shooters is a friendly restaurant, not a rowdy, crazy place.   Signs indicate a belief in the Second Amendment rights and a strong Christian belief.   If you want great food in a peaceful environment, served by friendly waitresses, this is your place.   Brooke is another new friend and waitress.
