quick and easy, reasonably priced

If you’re looking for a quick and easy, reasonably priced, gourmet lunch or dinner – my favorite is Steamboat’s newest ‘get-and-go kitchen’, the Drunken Onion. Besides a colorful and tasty array of wraps, sandwiches and salads to satisfy your lunchtime craving, Owner and Chef, Ben Stroock, has prepared four huge coolers full of fresh, ‘heat-and-serve’ gourmet dinners!

the best and most memorable wedding meal

We selected Ben from the Drunken Onion to do the catering for our wedding because of his ability to tailor the menu to our exact needs, offer a fair price and demonstrate a true passion for food and flavor. In our first meeting with Ben we gave the guidelines of wanting something ‘different than the standard beef or chicken option’ of most weddings. Ben had us drooling as he described a Southwestern meal that he could put together for our guests. The meal that Ben created was colorful, unique and absolutely delicious. Guests from all parts of the US and the UK raved about the food at our wedding. We continue to receive comments that it was the best and most memorable meal that they had ever had at a wedding. Ben and his staff were professional and ensured that everything went smoothly from the setup, to the meal, to the cleanup.

We were so impressed with Ben as we planned our wedding that we decided to have him cater our rehearsal dinner as well. He put together a delicious meal of barbeque pork and chicken for our casual rehearsal dinner. He took all of the hassle out of our party by dropping off the food well before the guests arrived and picking everything up the next morning. The food was fantastic and our wedding guests continue to ask where they can find such great barbeque.

The entire experience of working with the Drunken Onion was great. We would highly recommend working with them for any occasion big or small.

the food was done to perfection

We wanted to thank you for making our son’s wedding weekend a beautiful event. The rehearsal get together at The Trillium House proved to be a great time thanks to the delicious food prepared by you and your staff. Your flexibility and desire to accommodate us was so appreciated. Everyone was so impressed with the fabulous dinner the evening of the wedding out at Columbine. The food was done to perfection. How you were able to deliver such a great meal, prepared in a kitchen you had never worked in before was beyond us. All of the staff needs to be commended for the attentive service they provided and wonderful attitude throughout the evening. We wish you continued success in the future, as you most certainly deserve it! Thanks again for everything.

above and beyond my expectations!

Ben and the staff at Drunken Onion went above and beyond my expectations on my wedding day! The planning was done remotely because Steamboat Springs was our destination wedding location. From the beginning, Ben had me feeling excited about the menu and at ease with all the planning details. As an event planner and designer I was reassured that everything would be taken care of I knew that Ben would make it happen! He worked with all of our special requests and combined his creativity and experience to create a fabulous menu. It was so nice to just relax, sit back and enjoy the day while the staff worked the event flawlessly. I was so impressed with the professionalism, the service, decor, food -the whole package! We made one of the best wedding decisions to work with Drunken Onion, I can’t recommend them enough.

i highly recommend the drunken onion

Yesterday I had to prepare lunch for a group (total of 20 people) that was in doing a site visit from our Corporate Office. I ordered from the Drunken Onion, Ben prepared a beef stroganoff, Caesar salad, homemade brownies and cookies – the food was EXCELLENT, most everyone went up for seconds. Ben worked with the time that was best for me to pick up the food and then all I had to do was heat it. I know I will be using Ben’s service again, if any of you are needing to provide lunch or dinner I highly recommend the Drunken Onion.

Ryan MacFarlane - I eat at The D.O. every time I'm in Steamboat. Whether you're hitting the slopes for the day or going out fishing, throw some of this delectable grub in your bag, you will not be disappointed. The corn chowder is a Godsend for that morning after you had one too many and the southwest crisp makes for a great late-night snack. Thanks for saving me Ben! See ya time.

Katie Twomey - Cannot speak highly enough of Ben and the Drunken Onion. Amazing food, fresh, great quality and variety. We ordered everything from Heat and Serve, to delivered meals to in chalet dining. All of it AMAZING. Ben could not have been more accomodating for our large group, which included children. The Drunken Onion is an absolute must for all your dining needs, and our whole group agreed compulsory for us when we return to Steamboat. Thanks again Ben - we will be back. Katie

Shad Sills - I love This place. It's perfect, we come here almost daily for a nice healthy snack/lunch/dinner and at 4 they make the best Rotisserie chicken. I also love when you eat in they will heat up your food for you

steamboat powersports - Very friendly staff and food is always amazing!

Mary Brophy - Tasty hamburger and a nice deli! The owner/chef happily answered questions about the grass-fed beef they serve. It's hard to find restaurants that care about using the healthiest food sources. Ben also has a welcoming smile and demeanor.

James Waterville - Amazing sandwiches!
