Open for Lucky Season Seventeen!

Hell's Backbone Grill is open!

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 drinkthat 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 9:30 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 in July!

We're super pleased to announce that the monks of Drepung Loseling Monastery are returning to Boulder this summer!

They'll be arriving on July 8th and will be offering their Mystical Arts Sacred Music and Dance for World Healing performance at 7pm on the grounds of the Boulder Mountain Lodge on Saturday July 9th.

There will also be a Buddhist teaching offered on Sunday afternoon and opportunities for personal blessings and pujas. We're so excited that they're coming back!

The lodge still has rooms available, but they won't last long once the word gets out...
We very much hope to see you!
