Welcome to Hell’s Backbone Grill

Come Visit Our Amazing Acreage!

We have our own farm! Not an herb garden, a farm! With a tractor and goats and everything!

At Hell's Backbone Grill, we serve food and drink that reflect our deep commitment to sustainability and intention to be of benefit in the world. Our ingredients are simple and honest: sustainably grown vegetables, herbs and flowers from the restaurant's own no-harm organic farm, and Boulder-raised grass-fed and -finished local lamb and beef. We lovingly tend over 75 heirloom fruit trees and 130 heritage-breed laying hens who provide the eggs for the breakfast plates.

Hell’s Backbone Grill’s organic farm is located three miles south of the restaurant in Lower Boulder. Our skilled team of farmers, WWOOFers and volunteers work to supply our kitchen with as many varieties of heirloom vegetables, greens and herbs as possible during our growing season. Our awesome cook team works diligently to capture and preserve the bounty of the fields. We freeze, dry and can every last morsel!

The farm is worked organically, employing principles of sustainability and Buddhist values of right livelihood. We use no chemicals, all weeding is done by hand (or by our two rescue goats), and we rely on companion planting and relocation to deter pests. Between our six acres, our hoophouse and the straw-bale greenhouse, we grow over 12,000 pounds of produce a year!

Reservations are strongly recommended for dinner.

From mid-March through the end of November, we are open 7 days a week for breakfast from 7:00 to 2:30 p.m., lunch from 11:30 to 2:30 p.m., and dinner from 5 to 9:00 p.m.

Please call 435-335-7464 or email to make dinner reservations while you are in Boulder. No reservations are needed for breakfast or lunch.

The Drepung Monks are returning to Boulder, Utah!

The Drepung Monks are returning to Boulder, Utah!
Hosted by the Boulder Mountain Lodge and Hell’s Backbone Grill

Boulder Mountain Lodge and Hell’s Backbone Grill are co-hosting these incredible monks as they teach, perform, play and inspire! Please join us! Being with the monks is fun, uplifting and joyous! There will be many opportunities to spend time with them and events to attend.

Welcome Reception at Hell’s Backbone Grill

The monks will arrive in Boulder in the afternoon of August 13th, and we'll be hosting a welcome reception for them. We'll serve butter tea and desi (the traditional auspicious saffron and goji berry sweet rice). Blake will provide offering scarves for anyone who wants one. All are invited to attend!

The monks are staying here as guests of the lodge through the morning of the August 19th. There will be two events and lots of opportunities for interaction and shared meals.

Opening Ceremony

On Friday, August 14th, at 11 a.m. The lamas begin the work of drawing an outline of the Medicine Buddha Sand Mandala for health and living.

Opening the Heart: Arousing the Mind of Universal Kindness

Also on Friday, August 14th, at 4 p.m. the spiritual leader of the group will give a one-hour talk, Opening the Heart: Arousing the Mind of Universal Kindness, followed by a question and answer session.

Closing Ceremony and Dispersal of Sand

On Tuesday, August 18th, at 6 p.m. the monks will begin their closing ceremony. Traditionally most sand mandalas are deconstructed shortly after their completion. This is done as a metaphor of the impermanence of life.

*A donation of $15 for each event is recommended. The monks will also be selling traditional jewelry, prayer flags, etc. All proceeds & donations go to support their monastery in India.

For any questions regarding the monks stay or to request a special blessing, please contact Oyuki Cortez at Hell’s Backbone Grill (435) 335-7464 or .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address).
