A tale of a bungled bacon blue burger

-A A +A
By Jennifer Garcia

Finding a place to grab a late-night bite to eat in Los Alamos is virtually impossible — and by late night, we’re talking after 8 p.m. The choices are limited to McDonald’s and Sonic, so if you’re looking for something other than fast food, you’re out of luck.
There’s at least one restaurant that stays open past 8 p.m. — the Aspen Grill. Having the hankering for dinner after 8 p.m. one Friday night, it seemed like the perfect place to get a bite.
Located in the bar inside the Best Western Hilltop House Hotel, it’s not easy to find. In fact, there’s no indication (other than the sign outside) that there even is a restaurant there. It seems like just place to drink, but once you walk in and find a seat, you’ll receive a menu featuring pub fare.
The bar/restaurant is small, with only a few tables located within close proximity of each other, but it seems that there is an addition located behind the bar, that also has tables. On that particular Friday night, the place was dead, save for a small group of men enjoying cocktails in the center of the room. The two waitresses were having dinner in the corner, while a college baseball game played on the televisions suspended from the ceiling.
