Lisa & Dave Jacobson along with their sons Branden & Trevor came to Gunnison and opened The Gunnisack in March of 2004 with the idea of creating a restaurant that would become a fixture for years to come. The concept was to provide a fresh, quality product and to be involved in the community in ways that would help to preserve the friendly small town charm that is Gunnison. The menu is designed to be unique and innovative with an emphasis on making as much as possible fresh and from scratch. It all starts with Angus Beef ground-in-house daily to create delicious burgers that are served on freshly baked sesame buns, soups, chilis, sauces and dressings that are all made from scratch right here in our kitchen. Each day our prep cooks start with a prep list of over seventy items including red skin garlic mashed potatoes, our own foccacia bread and cheddar onion biscuits and all of our desserts.
As Gunnison’s original “trans fat free zone”, The Gunnisack is involved in many community events such as “Have-A-Heart” where every February a portion of sales are distributed to different Gunnison charities and you, our guests get to vote on which charity you would like to see the funds go to, our annual “Thanksgiving Box Dinner” where through the Gunnison Country Food Pantry we provide boxed dinners for needy families (usually about 70) and our work with “Habitat for Humanity” where we currently have our Habitat Chicken Samich on the menu so each time you purchase one a dollar will go to them.
Located on the first block of North Main Street, The Gunnisack strives hard to provide an atmosphere in which all will be comfortable. With our kids “Buckaroo Menu”, many vegetarian selections, weekly specials, almost full bar and a staff that really wants to make your experience special, it’s not unusual to see families, business persons, locals, tourists, college students and seniors all enjoying their favorites at the same time. We invite you to come on in and experience the uniqueness of The Gunnisack, Cowboy Bistro Restaurant and Bar.
