After doing a little hiking we wanted to get something to eat and one of the only places on Mt. Charleston is the Mt. Charleston Lodge. We were seated quickly but it took a while for anyone to stop by after that. Their menu is filled with a lot of typical bar food — sandwiches, pizzas, soups and salads, etc. Prices are cheaper than on the strip but still pricey considering the place is almost an hour away.
The pulled pork sandwich ($13.00) is a large sandwich with hickory smoked, pulled and marinated pork. Their BBQ sauce was decent but a little sweet and the pork itself was on the mushy side. Not a bad sandwich at all, but I’ve had much better. The southwestern grilled chicken sandwich ($15.00) was ordered on the recommendation of the waiter who assured us it was great. It wasn’t. The menu says it’s a marinated chicken breast with pepper jack cheese, guacamole, alfalfa sprouts, lettuce, tomatoes, pickles and red onion on a whole wheat roll. It came out without the guac and sprouts so we had to flag down the waiter, who brought out a side of the two ingredients. Even with the added items it was bland and boring. The highlight of both meals was the house-made potato and sweet potato chips.
The place is worth a return visit (again, it’s one of the few places to eat in the area). If you go, prepare to be underwhelmed.
