Hot Sulphur Springs has a new restaurant on US Highway 40 that plans to be serving dinner.

Mama B’s Kitchen, owned and operated by Barbara Elliot, offers American comfort dining for visitors and locals. The restaurant will be open from 4 to 8 p.m. Mondays and from 12-8 p.m. Tuesday through Sunday.

“We want to serve good food for evening meals,” Elliot says. “We feel there’s a need for dinner fare in the county seat here in Hot Sulphur, especially during the winter months.”

Elliot, who has worked as a server, cook and chef at restaurants in Grand County for many years, wants to serve good basic food at a fair price. Everything is made in-house, including the cheese sticks, which brings the good ole’ home style taste to the menu. The menu features such “comfort” items as meatloaf with mashers and greens, a smothered burrito, chicken tenders with fries and other standard fare such as hamburgers and grilled cheese sandwiches. For gluten-free diners, she offers an apple-brined pork chop with mashers and greens. The children’s menu features chicken tenders, a grilled cheese sandwich or a corndog, all served with fries. And for families looking for a bargain, Mama B’s is offering a Monday night special from 4-8 p.m. during which children 12 and under get a meal for no charge.

“We want families to feel welcome in Mama B’s and we want to make it affordable,” Elliot says.

With the Hot Sulphur Springs Resort open year-round, and with a wide range of museum and outdoor recreation options for visitors right in town, Elliot said she has seen a need for evening fare in town. “We’re right on US 40 so come on in and give us a try.”

Mama B’s is located at 512 Byers Ave. (U.S. Highway 40). 970-281-5034,
