  • Cowboy Star's green pepper Pueblo burger.
Two years in, Cowboy Star remains a choice spot for wining and dining, per an insert included with our receipt, touting the eatery’s “approachable sophistication.” Our huge Broken Arrow ($12), served straight-up, pairs vodka with tang from passion fruit and crisp bitterness from champagne and grapefruit juice, with sweetness and finishing smokiness from a pineapple-chipotle syrup.

We’re torn between a steak salad and a green pepper Pueblo burger ($13) — our server advises us to go burger, which we get with garlicky shoestring fries. The house-ground, 7-ounce patty comes on a squishy Old School Bakery bun with roasted Anaheim pepper strips, jalapeño cream cheese and haystack onions. The peppers and cream cheese do well with the beef, but there’s no real heat. In truth, this burger doesn’t need frills — maybe go plain-Jane cheeseburger and save a few bucks.
