Happy Hour Every Day at Dos Locos!

After a long day of playing in the mountains there is nothing better then Happy Hour at Dos Locos Restaurant in Keystone.  We stay in Oro Grande Condos with SummitCove Lodging and we can walk to Dos Locos from our condo, which is a huge perk since we really like the margaritas at Dos and don’t want to have to drive after Happy Hour!

Happy Hour at Dos Locos is  from 2:30 – 6:00 pm Monday through Thursday and 2:30 – 5:30 pm on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays.  House margs are $5 unless you get the biggie, then it’s $7.00. I upgrade to the Grand Gold marg; it’s $6.50 for the small (12 oz) or $9 or the large (20 oz.).  They also have beer and shot specials during happy hour. I highly recommend trying the mystery shot for $3. The bartenders never disappoint! 

The Happy Hour food menu is also excellent, tacos for a couple of bucks and wings for $4.25!  They also have an $8 menu with sandwiches, soups, flautas, quesadillas and little burritos. You can always count on the free chips and salsa, too! I do not know anywhere else in Keystone where I can eat good food for $8.  Dos Locos also has a gluten free menu which is a huge plus for my family!

We also really enjoy the fun atmosphere at Dos Locos, with an upstairs area that is better suited for families, in addition to the downstairs bar seating.  The servers and bartenders are friendly and always ready to joke around and have a good time.  They have pool tables and some arcade games to play as well.  There are plenty of TV’s in the bar area if you’re interested in watching a sports game.  With great food and drinks and awesome prices where else would we go in Keystone, than to Dos Locos!
