  • Casa Bonita

    3.5 out of 5 stars

    Denver Restaurants

    My son and I went there in 1996, after just having moved to Denver. I am surprised at all the BAD REVIEWS, Back then it was GREAT. It was not a Buffet, not even close. The entertainemnt was fantastic. I'm sorry to hear it has gone down in food quality, Service, etc. I have bragged about it for years. It was STRICTLY MEXICAN food then, and it was...

  • Buckhorn Exchange

    3.5 out of 5 stars

    Denver Restaurants

    This is the oldest restaurant in Colorado. Buffalo Bill ate here as well as Teddy Roosevelt, Dwight Eisenhower, Bill Clinton and others. Roy Rodgers, Dale Evans, and more.....they have all signed photographs and hung them on the wall. Besides the numerous photos, there is an old rifle collection, and heads of at least 50 different animals that were...

  • Denver Chop House

    5 out of 5 stars

    Denver Restaurants

    Denver's Chop House is an unusual combination: from one perspective, it's a steakhouse-style spot, with an excellent menu leaning toward the beef, but from the other, it's a brewpub, just with somewhat higher-priced entrées. Walking in, with the restaurant channeling 1940's cool (the lights are turned down, and the decor looks like something from a...

  • El Taco de Mexico

    4.5 out of 5 stars

    Denver Restaurants

    El Taco De Mexico: Very authentic Mexican food! The the menu was pretty much all in Spanish. The people were nice and friendly. The place is hard to miss - it is BRIGHT YELLOW. You can eat at the counter or booth or do take out. Very inexpensive. Few local Mexican restaurants match the authenticity of El Taco de Mexico, which serves mouthwatering...

  • Wynkoop Brewery

    3.5 out of 5 stars

    Denver Restaurants

    Here's the lowdown: The food here is generic at best. The service is atrocious. We ordered a bottle of wine and asked if we could, as is tradition, have a sample of two wines before choosing. The waitress said, "Sure," with a smile. Then the manager, looking a little like a haggard cop, came to our table and said, "We'll have to charge you to...

  • Carmine's on Penn

    4.5 out of 5 stars

    Denver Restaurants

    Amazing food served family style. Best if you go with four, but two is still okay. Order from a big board. Ask the waiter for wine recommendation. Its always really good. They have a great Italian selection. Very lively atmosphere, but can be quiet and romantic depending on where you are sitting. This restauarnt has great service and great food....

  • Breakfast in America - Part 2

    Here we go again, still enthusing about American breakfast. It used to be the case back home that the British breakfast was the thing that most tourists raved about, but the breakfasts I've had here in the US far surpass most in the UK, both in quality and choice.The Egg and I was no exception. This is a small chain of breakfast/lunch diners in...

  • The Blue Parrot

    The Colacci family opened the Blue Parrot in 1919 and is still operating the restaurant four generations later. It specializes in a full menu of Italian dishes that are made from scratch "grandma style." The restaurant is noted for its homemade thick-noodle spaghetti, ravioli, tangy spaghetti sauce, meatballs, and Italian sausage. The ambiance of...

  • Asian food at your door in Aurora :)

    While staying with a friend in Aurora as a pit stop on a recent roadtrip, she introduced me to this wonderful take out place! Tasty Basil provides dine in, take out, or delivery. Since we had our meal delivered, I have no idea what their dining room is like, but the food that was delivered to our door as fantastic!The menu is a combination of Thai,...

  • Good eating at the Timberline Deli in...

    This is a neat little place to dive into when you need a quick bite before hitting the hot springs pool in Ouray. The server was very helpful with suggestions. They have sandwiches, bagels, soups and desserts. We spent under $10 for the two of us for an early evening meal.This is definitely a "family" friendly place.

  • Breakfast of Champions

    Now here is one place that did fit my pre-determined stereotype of small town America and I do not mean that to be, in any way, a disparaging comment. OK when one imagines a small town diner the first image that comes to mind is that of formica tables, blousy waitresses, the fat guy in the dirty T-shirt slapping stuff on the grill. The image that I...

  • Decent Chinese Food in Durango

    This restaurant was located in one of the old buildings in the historic area of Durango. It looked fairly neat from the outside and I liked the decor inside. My waiter was a nice ethnic Chinese guy from Malaysia. The food was a bit of a disappointment, however. The Egg Drop Soup was too watery and had little taste. I ordered a Malaysian dish (don't...

  • Great Steaks in Montrose

    If you are staying at the Days Inn in Montrose and want a great steak or some prime rib you don't have to go far. The Red Barn is right across the parking lot. The menu includes a wide variety of fare: Italian, steaks, seafood, and traditional items like meatloaf. Hours are 11 AM to 10:30 PM Monday through Saturday. Sunday Brunch is 9 AM to 3...

  • Great Restaurant in Cortez

    The crappy motel I stayed at has a restaurant associated with it. Talk about night and day. Obviously all the money and effort go into the restaurant. Nero's has a fairly varied menu of Italian dishes (but no Veal Parmesan). Decor is okay. The weight staff was efficient and professional. Be advised though it is NOT cheap! Try the excellent Shrimp...

  • Good Chinese Food Varied Menu in...

    This restaurant has a pretty varied menu with a few different syles. Food was adequately prepared. Not a bad choice if you want Chinese Food. Good Shrimp in Garlic Sauce, well prepared, tasted fresh.

  • Go for the house PIZZA

    Very old place, fits right in with the rest of town. Assay office was in the ground floor and something else was on the second floor! Great atmosphere, fun for all ages. Parking in back. The house pizza in a thing to see and eat. You buy it by the pound and can get just about anything on it. The real thick side crust, is in a word, GREAT. Put a...

  • nature calls

    Rocky Mountain National Park has a fair sized gateway town in Estes Park so if you are in the eastern portion of the park, you can head over there for a meal or a drink in the evening. On my trip in 1994, I visited Estes Park Brewery and it's a no frills kind of place that serves typical pub grub and run-of-the-mill micobrews made on the...

  • the biking brewery

    The tasting room at New Belgium Brewing may not be a restaurant in a strict sense as no food is served but their many beers deserve to be treated in a culinary sense. It's a big high-ceilinged boisterous room with a huge oval bar which is manned by three or four very able bartenders. These people are über servers but beyond that, they are...

  • man does not live on beer alone

    Man does not live on beer alone and brewpub food can get a bit repetitive. D & I love middle eastern food so when we were strolling around Boulder the day after our Boulder brewpub excursion and knowing we'd be eating dinner at yet another brewpub in Denver that night, we happened upon Falafel King. This very small eatery is right on Pearl Street...

  • crem de la crem

    Avery Bewing is the big boy of Colorado craft beer. Though it was around (just barely) on my 1994 swing through the state, it was not well known until winning a gold medal that very autumn at the Great American Beer Festival. It's been all up since then and we can even get their well-made beers in South Florida now. Despite their success, the...

  • not quite what I remembered

    Mountain Sun was one of the brewpubs from my 1994 first visit to Colorado that I wanted to return to most. It ranked second after Wynkoop in Denver for that honor. I remember it being this incredibly cool place, with a big oval bar, great friendly bartenders and locals that welcomed you like you had been coming there for ages. I was a little...

  • glad I went back

    The Walnut Brewery was not on the agenda of my return visit to Boulder in 2008. Though it must have been good enough in 1994 to prod me into buying one of their t-shirts, it did not look overly promising when I check out their website prior to returning. It looked to have gone a bit upscale and corporate and with only one night in town, I figured...

  • the best brewpub in Colorado

    Denver is full of brewpubs as is Colorado. While Avery Brewing may very well be the premier brewer, making the most extreme beers in the state, Wynkoop has them beat when it comes to running a pub. This place has been around forever or so it seems when you walk into the historical building it occupies. It just oozes the past and yet is entirely...

  • Restaurant Divers

    Yep, you read it right. This restaurant actually has a show along with your dinner. There is a waterfall in the middle of the restaurant; and during the show, divers jump off the waterfall into the water below. There is also an aracde, gift shop, and lots of fun things for kids to do here. Get the all you can eat beef or chicken entrees. You...

  • Authentic Creole

    If you’re ever in Longmont, Colorado, stop by 518 Kimbark St., a small yellow Victorian house that's home to Lucile's Creole Café. Lucile's serves an array of gourmet and delectable breakfast and lunch items. The mouth-watering menu is simple but varied and large portions are guaranteed to leave you satisfied. Enjoy a glass of actual fresh-squeezed...

  • Barbeque can't taste any better.

    It's a "seat yourself" type of place with a back patio that's open when the weather is nice. Different pig figurines are found all over the place, which adds to the hometown feel where the restaurant is located. It's rarely packed, but times to avoid would be weekend evenings and all day Sunday, if you don't want to catch a rush. The Dinner Combo...

    Sushi Den simply has some of the freshest fish i've ever eaten. ...and i eat a LOT of bait, mind you. they fly exotic fish in from fukuoka weekly, making for a specials menu that is otherworldly. their specials menu really astounds. my most recent meal there included monkfish liver nigiri, needlefish nigiri with shiso leaf, as well as some...

  • Best Ribs in Colorado

    I haven't been to Parket that many times, but the Hickory House is worth the drive to Parker. They have awesome Ribs here and I generally don't eat ribs. All food is made from their recipes and we haven't had anything we didn't like here, yet. I believe they have a restaurant in Aspen as well.Would highly recommend! Everything is good-Go for the...

The Ford Times even...

    We stopped in here on a Sunday morning on our drive from Ouray to Conifer. We were impressed with the variety of breakfast food that was nicely displayed.The omelettes and eggs were excellent! Lots of good breakfast meats, also. The servers went out of their way to make sure our coffee was kept hot and the mugs full. They were very friendly,...

  • Denver Asian Restaurant

    Nice restaurant. Always good food. I love their Jasmin Tea. Always a wait though. It's located in Cherry Creek North, a cute part of town. Parking may be difficult but not impossible. I can't tell you my favorite dish. My husband's is the Sesame Tofu.

  • Boulder Tea House

    You have to see this place to believe it. The ceilings, tables and columns are hand-carved and hand-painted with amazing detail. It was a gift to Boulder from Dushanbe. The story behind it is interesting. The restaurant serves mostly middle eastern food. A large variety of teas. A wonderful experience. I've enjoyed every meal I had...

  • Fine Dining Steakhouse

    This place was a really nice place to eat. However, I do have a few issues with the place. For one, there were only about 5 items on the menu that were under $20.00 US. Secondly, the portions you get are smaller than what you would expect. In other words, I felt I didn't get my money's worth with what I ordered. We ran up a $143.00 tab VERY...

  • Best Little Coffee Shop In Colorado

    This is by far the best coffeeshop I have ever experienced!! In my opinion, these types of coffeeshops are better than national chains, basically because they have more to offer. For one, Java the Hut is a 2-floor coffehouse complete with couches, USGS maps, books, and an absolutely MAGNIFICENT view of Pikes Peak. The two tan buidings in the...

  • Great Breakfast

    The Hungry Bear...if you are in fact "HUNGRY," this place is a must. You get generous helpings, and the price is about average. I'm not sure about lunch or dinner, but the breakfast is really good!! Pancakes!

  • Great BBQ

    This place has really good barbecue. You can order ribs, chicken, mashed potatoes, baked beans, etc. All meals come with onion strings and corn muffins. Very good indeed. A little pricy, but good nonetheless. BBQ ribs with mashed potatoes and pulled chicken. That's good eatin'!

  • Restaurants In Colorado Springs

    Colorado Springs has to have more restaurants than anywhere I have ever been (I'm sure some other city tops it, I just haven't been there yet).Anyway, if and when you come to Colorado Springs, you will be overwhelmed with restaurants. Don't worry...I'll put up the best ones (in my opinion) up, so the list can get narrowed down just a bit.Have fun!

  • Buffalo Burgers

    No it's not a tepee! It is a restaurant, and a good one at that. Unfortunately, it has changed quite a bit since I first ate here in 1998. For one, the prices have gone up (no big surprise there), secondly, they no longer carry Duffy's Famous Root Beer (what a bummer. They have Duffy's Root Beer Floats, but no bottled....kind of strange, but OK...I...

  • Pretty good for a restaurant chain!!

    Normally, I don't put restaurant chains on here because, well, they just aren't as good (in other words, there will be no Mcdonalds on here!!). However, when I ate at Pei-Wei (pronounced "pay-way"), I had no idea that #1: It was an actual restaurant chain, and #2: It was downright good!! The Wontons and the special spicy sauce are to die for!!

  • Great Breakfast

    This place has the best breakfast I have tried yet!! It's a small place, with a lot of New York City decor (hence the name, "Broadway Deli"). When I was here several weeks ago, I tried the "Eggel Bagel," which is your choice of plain, onion, and some other type of bagel I can't recall. Abosultely good. If you don't try this place, you will miss...

  • Best Java in the Rockies

    Wood-paneled walls, free wireless Internet access, a handsome deck overlooking the river, free (usually) music at least one night a week, comfortable seating, a limited but good menu (mostly pastries and sandwiches) -- and did I mention that they have the best Java in the Rockies? I've only been here for breakfast, and they make an incredibly good...

  • Wonderful food in a sweet setting

    This restaurant is housed in a delightful old building (with Victorian windows and a pressed tin ceiling) right in the center of downtown Salida. Dinners are excellent, and the menu (especially the daily specials) is imaginative. Lunches are more informal -- there's a limited menu, mostly salads and sandwiches; you order and pay at the counter, and...

The food was absolutely wonderful, but we didn't stay here.In any case, as we walked in to go to the restaurant, the receptionist led us to the restaurant through the Inn...he told us right out of the blue "Alice is still with us here in...
