There’s a new top Slopper in Pueblo, and the traveling chile trophy goes to …

The Slopper, seen here from Brues Alehouse in downtown Pueblo, is a hamburger patty smothered in green chile. It also often features cheese, onions and French fries and is sometimes served open face.

The votes are in and the public chose a different restaurant this year to take the top spot in the 2024 Slopper Tour. The Greater Pueblo Chamber of Commerce and Visit Pueblo announced Monday that the Cactus Flower Restaurant on the city's northside has taken the number one spot.

The Slopper is a signature burger in Pueblo drowned in green chile and often features cheese, onions, and French fries. 

The Mexican restaurant smothers its half-pound beef Slopper with green chile and tops it with Monterey jack and cheddar cheese. As the top spot, the Cactus Flower will hold on to a traveling chile trophy awarded each year.

Like last year, nominations were submitted online and the public got to vote.

Other top honors go to the following locations:

  • Gray's Coors Tavern
  • B Street Cafe*
  • Rock Ya Belly Food Truck*
  • Gold Dust Saloon
  • Riverside Bar & Grill 
  • 3 Sisters Tavern
  • Beer Barrel*
  • Cafe Murillo
  • Sunset Inn

Restaurants marked with an asterisk are new to the list this year. Each winner receives a window decal designating them a Top 10 Slopper Stop and is part of an official 2024 Slopper Tour.

A similar poll run in February by the Pueblo Chieftain designated the Sunset Inn as the city's best Slopper, followed by the Gold Dust Saloon and Pass Key.
