Pepper Pod Restaurant & Lounge

Nominated for: BEST Comfort Food

Pepper Pod Restaurant & Lounge 530 Fir St Hudson CO (303) 536-4736

The Pepper Pod, built in 1913 by the Peppers family, began as a modest café on old Main Street in Hudson. Soon however, flourishing business necessitated a larger building, so one was built next to Highway 6 where business thrived, making it a landmark on the plains northeast of Denver. In 1956, our present building was constructed near the new interstate 80 (now I-76). Mr. Peppers son-in-law, Bill Howard, operated the “Oasis on the Plains” into the 70's. Dave & Beth bought the Pod in 1977, and decided to “Never rest on our reputation, but keep building one.” We began serving buffalo year round, a concept started due to the beef shortages of World War II. In fact, the beautiful bison heads decorating our main dining room are relics from the herd which grazed behind the Pod for many years. In 2005, our daughter Amy graduated from the prestigious Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park, NY & has now joined our operation. You will notice her influence, as we continue to strive to bring you the freshest & highest quality foods available, prepared when you order. Amy brings fresh ideas & expertise to the Pod that you will find in new specials, & menu offerings. However, having grown up here, she treasures our foundation in tradition, so you still won't need a degree in Chemistry to understand our list of ingredients. Dave still selects well marbled beef, ages it in our facilities, and cuts it fresh daily. Our salad dressings, soups, breads, gravies, etc., are all made from scratch, with many from recipes created over 96 years ago.
