Named in honor of Kenny Monfort, a pioneer in the cattle industry, Kenny’s Steakhouse has been rooted in the cowboy way of life since 1995. If there is one thing that Kenny’s knows best, it is how to serve cowboys across Northern Colorado. Though widely acknowledged for its high quality, homemade food, Kenny’s also serves refreshing cocktails making it the perfect waterhole for these warm summer afternoons.  

The “New Old Fashioned” is a modern twist on the classic Old Fashioned cocktail, incorporating locally made single barrel bourbon and Orange bitters to add a fruitful dimension to the hardy classic bourbon cocktail. The “Prickly Pear Margarita” will take you back to the Wild Wild West. Prickly pears are a pink fruit that grows on cacti, most commonly found in the deserts of Arizona. The sweet, candied flavor paired with the stunning pink look is sure to satisfy your cowboy taste buds. Cheers!
