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 well-worn tables 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 macrobrews rather than cocktails at the bar, and the popcorn has fueled many a hungry local before payday. Those with a few bucks to spare often start with beer-battered onion rings, among the best in town. Serving sizes often remind us of Aspen Mountain: enormous burgers, overstuffed Reubens and gravy-smothered chicken-fried steak come with copious spuds, fried, baked or mashed. Thick, meaty chili is perfect for a cold winter night, and the legendary bundt cake warms hearts as well. Concessions to the health-conscious include ample if standard salads, grilled fish dishes and vegetarian lasagna --- but hearty appetites hard-won on the slopes are best rewarded here.
