RIDGWAY—(June 4, 2013)  Too good to be true?   Nope—It’s True Grit, Too! Expect the same “true comfort, true taste, and True Grit” style at the new eatery, officially known as True Grit Too, at the Divide Ranch & Club (151 Divide Ranch Circle) on Log Hill Mesa. Chef David Austin will be cooking old favorites, like the burgers that have made the Grit famous, but there will be surprises on the menu as well.

David is from Louisiana,” True Grit Owner Tammee Tuttle said. “Our first theme night is tonight—we’ll have our full menu, and our  theme is Cajun night.  He’ll be cooking things like chicken andouille sausage gumbo, shrimp and grits, and red beans and rice. And on Friday nights we will have burger night, with burgers for $6.”

True Grit Too at Divide Ranch and Club will be open for lunch from noon to 4 p.m. Tuesdays through Saturdays, and for dinner from 5 p.m. until closing on Tuesdays and Fridays.

Even if you have never hit a golf ball in your life, make Divide Ranch & Club your mealtime destination, Tuttle said.

“Come for the views and the comfort,” she said, “and for a lovely, lovely moment of peace and fresh air. We have seating indoors and outdoor dining as well. Our menu is not quite the same as it is at the True Grit in town—this place has its own menu. For locals, we are honoring our punch cards at either location.

“We have some John Wayne décor, but it’s eclectic,” she said. “Cowboys, golfing…we have our own personality up here!”

The hard work of her employees—38 at the True Grit, and five at the True Grit Too—was essential in getting the new place open, Tuttle said.

“They are the most amazing group of people,” she said. “I just want to say thank you to them for all of the support.”

The phone number for True Grit Too is 970-626-3489.
