Operating Award-Winning Restaurants in Colorado since 1994

Big Red F was created in 1994 by Chef Dave Query who has a long history with food in Boulder.

Each kitchen is strongly driven by passionate Chefs, sourcing ingredients with integrity and practicing technique to its best measure.

Behind the bar, our mixologists are crafting delicious cocktails and

assembling wine and beer lists built on local intelligence and value.

And in our dining rooms are a collection of General Managers striving to ensure a level of hospitality and graciousness that will always be genuine and memorable.

Environmental Practices

All of our disposable products are recyclable or compostable. 100% of our electricity is offset with wind power and we use CFL light bulbs wherever we can. We recycle all of our waste oil with a variety of local companies.

All of our restaurants use natural beef, chicken and pork and source cleaner ingredients—natural and local whenever possible. We grow and use herbs from our garden boxes, and all of our restaurants support fisheries and purveyors that are environmentally conscious and that fish legally from sustainable waters.
