The local ’50s-style New Castle Diner changed ownership on June 1. The new owner, David Souders, made some changes to the menu and where the products come from.
Many of the items on the new menu are made to order, from the hand battering of our fish and chips with house made beer batter, to the breading of our own beef cutlets for chicken fried steaks, and the handmade sausage country gravy from scratch.
Here at the diner we strive to source our products as locally as possible whether it comes from the local area or from within Colorado. Currently, some of our locally sourced items include: eggs from Grand Junction, corned beef from Denver, coffee from Vail Mountain Roasters, and our meat program starts with the freshest and choice grade of black Angus beef from Out West Meats in Rifle. We even source some of our produce from Osage Gardens and Peach Valley Farms, both right here in New Castle. Just recently, we received local pumpkins, which we’ve turned into pies, winter squash for nightly vegetable, along with salad greens, cucumbers and tomatoes. With all this in mind about freshness, we also make our own ketchup and Tabasco-style hot sauce to show our commitment to quality.
At the New Castle Diner all of the fruit pies are made on the premises with apples, peaches and plums from area farmers in Palisade. Before the farmers markets ended we were able to put away some of these fruits to carry us into the New Year with local pies. In addition to the pies, we are offering an array of gluten-free products to tempt any appetite. Also we carry an assortment of great beers that are produced in and around the front range of Colorado. Please feel free to stop in and introduce yourself and check out the changes to your local diner.
