“Carlos never disappoints! The Filet Oscar was cooked to perfection and was piled with crabmeat and the hint of tarragon in the hollandaise made it so delicious. The starter of Maine lobster was charred slightly in a way to give a roasted flavor to the lobster meat. The key lime tart had enough pucker that balanced the sweetness and made my eyes roll. The wait staff has to be the best in town, making you feel taken care of and welcomed.” – Brenda W. 01/27/2019 – a Recent Review from Yelp.

“The imposing landscapes. The off-the-beaten-path landmarks. These define the notorious landscape stretching across central Colorado. These make Phantom Canyon.

From our standpoint, if you’re going to name yourself after a special place like Phantom Canyon, you need a building just as special. Thus, the historic Cheyenne Building named after Cheyenne Mountain and Chief Two Moons of the Cheyenne Indian Tribe, a luminary whose stone visage watches over the front entrance.

Since opening in 1993, we continue honoring the spirit of the Phantom Canyon and Chief Two Moons by dedicating ourselves to giving Colorado Springs the best beer, the best food and the best hospitality we can. All three levels share stories from brew and food lovers of all walks of life, making us one of the best restaurants in Colorado Springs.

“It started with a light conversation between Kevin and Suzette Megyeri about what kind of business would fit well in their family’s commercial building in Downtown Colorado Springs. The couple, who already has a well established Italian restaurant called Bambino’s, wanted to try their hand at a new concept. The small talk birthed the idea of a burger joint. When making burgers at home, they would melt a mount of cheddar cheese around the beef and grill it until it resembled a “skirt”. They always called the burger the “Skirted Heifer”!” Skirted Heifer  Website

“Chef Bobby Couch brings the taste of central Oklahoma to the Green Line Grill with the world famous El Reno-style Onion ‘Fried’ Burger. The Onion ‘Fried’ Burger had its start during the dark days of the Dust Bowl in the central Oklahoma town of El Reno. It was a creative and delicious blend of hamburger and onions that was both tasty enough and inexpensive enough to feed a family or a couple out for a night on the town. The inventive cooks also came up with an equally tantalizing sweet-mustard slaw now known as El Reno Slaw. As those days waned, the popularity of the onion ‘fried’ burger did not and the tradition has continued right up to the present day. Chef Bobby learned his craft in the Mecca of the Onion ‘Fried’ Burger world – El Reno, OK! So come sit a spell, and enjoy a tasty piece of American history at the Green Line Grill.
