2009 Restaurant Reviews Parker Colorado

Lets keep up the great conversation from the previous thread on local restaurants… Don’t hold back!  Keep letting everyone know what you think of the local restaurants. Last year we pretty much agreed that Vines is a bit pricey but we still like it, BB’s was everyone’s least favorite restaurant and that’s why it closed, Indochine has nothing but great reviews,   and the vote is mixed about Warhorse,  & Trappers  so tell it like it is!
