I don’t usually do restaurant reviews in this space, but I had an exception experience last week.
Cheri and I were visiting Leadville Colorado last week and the conductor on the Leadville to Climax Railway recommended Quincy’s. All they do is Filet Mignon. That’s it – Filet Mignon (and vegetarian lasagna for the meat free) Monday through Thursday. Friday through Sunday it’s Prime Rib – but that’s it.
When you do one thing only, usually it is done very well, and Quincy’s is no exception to the rule.
The astounding part is the prices! 6 oz filet for $7.95, 9 oz for $9.95, 12 oz for $11.95, and $15 oz for$13.95. This includes a salad, baked potato, and bread.
I ordered the 12 oz and Cheri ordered the 9 oz. They started us off with a salad and some bread, both of which were freshly made and excellent. Then the steaks came, and whoever is weighing them…well let’s just say they were generously proportioned. My steak looked like the steak that Cypher was eating with Mr Smith in the movie "The Matrix," medium rare, red and succulent, with a full bodied flavor that only comes from proper aging. Even the potatoes were fabulous.
Our entire tab with tip came to around $30. If you are in the Denver area, it is probably worth the beautiful 2 hour drive through the mountains to get to Quincy’s.
