Inspired by the adventuresome spirit of the Rocky Mountains, a group of mountain-loving friends opened the first Smiling Moose in Edwards, Colorado in 2003. One of the first signature hot sandwiches they created was the award-winning Original Mo! that piles sizzling grilled meat and cheese on a fresh baked baguette, is toasted in an oven to meld the flavors, then topped with crisp lettuce, tomato, red onions and banana peppers, all finished with a tangy vinaigrette and seasoning for the perfect savory bite. The Original Mo! quickly became a favorite among guests and more than a decade later, is still one of the most-ordered sandwiches at The Moose. The Mo! inspired a menu of bold flavors and satisfying options that range from custom-tossed salads and mouthwatering grilled or cool sandwiches, to savory soups, wraps, and a full breakfast offering served all day. Drawing on culinary trends, guest feedback, and its creative roots, the culinary team continues to create new menu items and update existing ones to ensure every entree is flavorful, memorable, and unlike anything you could get somewhere else.
