Family-owned restaurants are something that Pueblo West takes pride in.
P-Dub’s Pizza & Rib Shack returns this pride.
Owners Tim Dominguez’s love and pride in the community is evident as soon as you open the menu.
Each of P-Dub’s signature burgers is named after one of the Pueblo West schools (The Titan, The Cyclone, The Spartan, etc.), but the support doesn’t stop there.
P-Dub’s is introducing a competition for the people of Pueblo West, which is best explained in their mission statement: “Here at P-Dub’s our mission is to support out community and the small business. We are also big supporters of our local schools. We have named our Famous P-Dub’s burgers after local school mascots and a portion of the profits for the top selling burger of the month will be donated to the mascot’s school. here at P-Dub’s we will also recommend local small businesses and events from time to time and all we ask is ‘Pay it Forward.’”
This mission statement isn’t some clever ploy to bring in customers, it comes directly from owner Tim Dominquez’s heart.
“Pueblo West is a tight community,” Dominguez said.
“We live here, and people in Pueblo West don’t want to go to Pueblo, they don’t want to go to Canon City, they want to be in our own little town.
“So, we all need to take care of each other, to build Pueblo West and to take care of the people in Pueblo West.”
P-Dub’s plans to do exactly that in the future, and what better way than to offer a community centralized restaurant.
P-Dub’s offers fall off the bone ribs, macaroni pizza and “kids make it, we bake it” pizza.
P-Dub’s self-seating system and televisions equipped with season passes to almost every televised sport imaginable (yes, including the NFL ticket) are only a couple of ways they strive to make P-Dub’s a community hub.
Dominquez hopes to turn his restaurant into a tool of revival for the small business and a way to benefit the community he holds dear.
“This nation was founded on small businesses in the first place,” Dominquez said. “So if we aren’t taking care of the small businesses and the small businesses don’t take care of the community, then America won’t be what it used to be.”
P-Dub’s is at 228 S. McCulloch Blvd. and open daily from 10 a.m. to midnight with carry out also available.
