Good food, friendly service and a huge helping of freedom — that’s what they're dishing up at Shooters Grill in Rifle, Colorado. "It's not about politics, it's a way of life," says one of the servers, who can be seen with a Ruger Blackhawk .357 strapped on her hip. But she's not alone. Customers carry, too, and owner Lauren Boebert wouldn't have it any other way. "We're certainly able to protect ourselves," she says.
Featuring menu items such as the "Locked and Loaded Nachos," "The Rifle Breakfast" and "The M16 Burrito," Shooters is a favorite of locals who grew up with guns and visitors who think more establishments could stand to put the Second Amendment on the menu. The restaurant also offers firearms classes to patrons and staff—they always fill up fast, and the price includes dinner!
