|Outside of Blue Moose Pizza in Lionshead Village|
Not every restaurant we dine at is the four or five star type. I admit I'm a food snob and when I travel I have a habit for tracking down all the James Beard Award nominees in my chosen destination. But, from time to time, I do want food that is simple and straightforward. Sometimes, I appreciate a really good pizza. Vail is miles away from both New York and Chicago but that doesn't mean it's lacking in fine pizzerias. Blue Moose Pizza is one of them. With locations in both Beaver Creek and Lionshead Village, Blue Moose Pizza is a favorite for Vail visitors. Blue Moose is especially loved by families. Their walls are adorned with pizza box-sized framed artwork of younger diners. Tables are topped with butcher paper and cups of crayons, ready for drawing. Kids are kept happy and busy until the pies arrive to the table. It's no wonder that the Blue Moose is a hit with parents and children alike.
What I didn't love: I can't really say that there is anything that I don't like about Blue Moose. It's a fun place to come for a quick bite to eat. I think I can only say that I don't love visiting on a rainy day. The outdoor seating is the best place to be.
How Much I Spent: ($) Our family of four ordered a 15" "build your own" pizza with sausage on 1/2 and four sodas for a total of about $32, with tip.
My overall rating: 3 1/2 spoons (out of 5). Now I can't comment on any of the other menu items because, frankly, the only thing I've ever ordered at Blue Moose Pizza is the pizza. But, I assume with pizza this good, the other menu items are at least worth a try.
