An Escape from the Ordinary
For luscious, melt-in-your-mouth flavor, nothing compares to Cowboy Star’s 18-ounce dry-aged, bone-in rib eye, paired with roasted bison bone marrow.
When Jon Weber, President and Co-Founder of Cowboy Star, was a little boy, he loved watching old black and white westerns. Little did he know then that his passion would inspire the creation of a fine dining restaurant. Cowboy Star transports you to a different time and place--when actors like Gene Autry and Roy Rogers played rough and rugged cowboys by day then reveled in the elegance of vintage Hollywood by night.
Their story is brought to life in the design as well--from rough cut cedar and exposed wood beams to crisp linen tablecloths and soft leather booths.
Along with co-founders Angie Weber and Executive Chef Victor Jimenez, Jon is passionate about fostering creativity in their staff. Their innovative menu changes seasonally, and sometimes weekly, to take advantage of the freshest local ingredients, while their bar program offers everything from local craft beers on tap to the best in specialty cocktails.
Known for their steaks, Cowboy Star offers the highest quality products, including Gold Grade American Wagyu beef that literally melts in your mouth.
“We believe in the humane management of animals,” says Angie Weber. “How they are treated and fed reflects in the quality of the meat.”
If you love Cowboy Star’s high quality steaks, chops and sausages, you can even buy some to take home. Their storefront butcher shop takes you back to the good old days when you knew your butcher by name, and he hand cut everything fresh to order.
“We make our own charcuterie and age our own hams,” says Angie Weber. If you have an upcoming event and need Colorado lamb and pigs or a standing rib roast, just place an order and you can have it in a day or two.
Chef Victor, a graduate of Le Cordon Bleu in Paris, is committed to forming relationships with local farmers and ranchers.
And he loves to go foraging. On weekends, you can find him searching for wild asparagus, onions, and mushrooms in and around Colorado Springs.
One of the most exciting offerings at Cowboy Star is their innovative Chef’s Tasting. Up to eight guests can enjoy a nine-course, specially-designed chef’s menu with wine pairings, served in a working pantry. The shelves are filled with homey touches like cookbooks and preserved vegetables to create a cozy atmosphere.
“Conversation always ends up in the kitchen,” says Jon Weber, “and that’s the experience we want to create.”
This commitment to quality and excellence in a warm and welcoming environment is the hallmark of Cowboy Star.
“Entertaining is our passion,” Angie Weber says, echoing the sentiments of her two partners. “We’re excited to be in Colorado Springs, and we look forward to taking good care of you.”
