Little Annie's Eating House Restaurant Review: In Aspen, where the befurred and bejeweled prowl the fine-dining spots, Little Annie's shines like a beacon for casual ski-town denizens and visitors looking for reasonably priced fare in a folksy, friendly setting. Wagon-wheel chandeliers hang from the ceiling, red-and-white checked tablecloths cover tables that are a little worn and some of the vinyl booths have been patched, all adding up to a place where families and ski bums alike feel welcome. More people drink beer than cocktails at the bar, and the popcorn has fueled many a hungry local before payday. Those with a few bucks to spare often order fried onion rings, among the best in town. Serving sizes here often remind us of Aspen Mountain. Enormous burgers come with a heap of fries, grilled steak is accompanied by a hill of mashed potatoes and barbecued ribs get a haystack of cole slaw. Thick, meaty chili is perfect for a cold winter night. The Reuben sandwiches are indisputably overstuffed. Folks with lighter appetites will find the fish and salads fresh but just as amply portioned, as is the rotisserie chicken. For dessert, Little Annie's bundt cake is legendary, and the bread pudding is darned delicious, too.
