As summer nights wear on, it might be time to take your dinner by the campfire. No, this isn't some kitschy wild west cookout. It's fine dining at Lon's at the Hermosa Inn and it's only $40 for three courses. With menu options like steak frites, house pulled mozzarella salad, and Lon's cowboy candy bar, you can put together a full meal without spending too much dough.
