A Colorado favorite for thick (or thin) crusted pizzas piled mile-high with toppings. – In Short
Rustic wood paneling and Old West-themed decor recall Colorado's gold-rush days. Hungry families crowd the restaurant munching on Beau Jo's famed thick Mountain Pizzas and thin Praire Pizzas. Customers choose from about 20 specialty pies or create their own using one or more of the seven sauces, nine cheeses and a long list oftoppings. There's also a catalog of sandwiches, calzones and desserts.
consumer – After living in Clear Creek County for nearly 10 years, I am amazed that Beau Jo's continues to draw anyone. My family tried numerous times to see what brought people here, tried nearly everything. The dough every time under cooked, basically raw beneath the golden brown, absolutely disgusting. Ever eat a shrimp pizza with raw dough?-once should have been enough, lesson learned.
Colorado Icon – Beau Jo's has been around for over 30 yrs. What a lot of people don't realize is there are 5 other locations across the front range, and in my experience, they're all just as good (believe me, I get out a lot) as the original in Idaho Springs. Support a long-lived and well-recognized business by checking them out---it's worth it!!!
Great Unusual Pizza – If you are a fan of thin crust, New York style pizza, Beau Jo's isn't for you. If you like stewed tomatoes (Chicago Deep Dish) pizza, Beau Jo's isn't for you.
If you want a crust with flavor, fresh toppings, choices of sauces, there is no better place than Beau Jo's.
Pizza shouldn't look or taste like this – Beau Jo's pizza is only good if you like fluffy whole wheat pizza crust with the added treat of honey to dip the crust in for a special kick. Beware New York style pizza lovers! It's an odd version and it's not delicious by any means. Don't be fooled into thinking your going to get the best pizza, not by a long shot.
Bad pizza – The idea of honey on pizza is pathetic , and gross.
This eating establishment , if that what you want to call it , has the worst pizza I have ever had. When I moved out here 4 years ago everyone said "You have to go to Beau Jo's" They have the best pizza in Colorado! A frozen pizza is comparatable!
But like most of Colorados food it keeps up with the trend , HORRIBLE!
If you want good pizza go to the LEDO in Lynn , Massachusetts , thats pizza!
Should Be National #1 – If anybody who likes (or loves) pizza, has never been here, you really need to go. It's worth a single-purpose pilgrimage.
You choose the dough, you choose the base, you choose the oil, you choose the toppings, you choose the cheeses, and then wait like a slobbering dog until your custom-crafted pizza is produced. It's well worth it.
Location, Location, Location – I really believe that the popularity of Beau Jo's has more to do with hungry Denverites returning from a day or weekend of play in the mountains than the actual pizza. When you spend a day on the slopes whether it be skiing, boarding, biking or hiking, and you are heading down I-70 down the hill, the idea
of Beau Jo's pizza is an enticing craving. Add to that the small cozy town of Idaho Springs with its inviting main street, and the old mining feel of the
restaurant, and any good food will do.
The product does have its merits, after all if it were just cardboard no one would return. The selection of crusts, cheeses, sauces and toppings is noteworthy. I love their Prairie Pie with anchovy.
I will continue to eat at Beau Jo's and recommend it
Beau Jo's – Absolutuely wonderful crust, great selection of toppings, wondernful setting, especially Silver City store.
REAL Pizza joints! – Denver knows squat about pizza! Coming from the 'Za kingdom, Springfield, MA, eating what Mile Highers consider pizza is laughable. Greasy, doughy, sloppy, stuffed, crappy slices with piled toppings. C'mon. New Yorkers know pizza, and the Springfield MA area has got those foldable, loveable, jam it in your mouth flavor filled slices. Pizza is an artform perfected by those back east. The closest thing to it out here that I've had is a toss up between two joints. #1. Ricos on South Broadway and Hampden. From Naples and Brooklyn, the guys at Rico's do it right! #2. Anthony's off the 16th Street Mall. Way to go boys! Please...no more of this BeauJo's garbage! NO more frozen Nick and Willy's chain food. Take and bake is a joke. Folks out here need the hole in the wall red and white checkered tables of the East Coast...pizza JOINTS, not pizza restaurants (chains).
