Woody’s Pizza and Watering Hole – Golden


After my hike to North Table Mountain in Golden I was looking for a spot to eat. I went back to the main strip on Washington Avenue and found my way to Woody’s Wood Fire Pizza and Watering Hole.

Woody’s has been around since 1993 but the building goes back further than that. It still has that nice old classic feel to it. They did have one thing a bit new for the football fans. My bartender Matt told me that they have a special drink. They serve the Tears of Tom Brady!

The Food at Woody’s in Golden

While I wasn’t ready to drink in the salty tears I was ready for some lunch! Woody’s is known for their wood fire pizza, and it looked delicious, but I was looking for something a bit different. I decided to go with the Hobo Cheesesteak.

The Hobo Cheesesteak was described as tender Philly-Style ribeye, grilled with mushrooms’, onions, red and green peppers. Topped with Melted white American cheese and loaded in a toasted hoagie roll. The menu also said that it had been on the menu for 20 years for a reason! That meant I had to try it.

First the bread. The bread was that soft yet thick bread that you think of at a pizza place. It had a nice baked crust but was soft in the middle and absolutely amazing. Next the Au Jus. I am not usually a huge fan of the Au Jus but this might have been the best I have had. It was nice and salty and tasted delicious.

I actually had to tell myself to take a bite without the Au Jus just so I could write about the rest of the sandwich. The meat was tender and well flavored with the onions and peppers. The cheese was melted perfectly and helped keep the sandwich together. As for the fries they just became an Au Jus delivery system!

Nice Touch

One thing that I didn’t really notice because I was so focused on the food was the really cool tin ceiling that they had above the bar. I had to add it in here.
