These 10 Restaurants In Colorado Don t Look Like Much But WOW, They re Good
Don t judge a book by its cover . Sound familiar? If you re like me, you have been hearing this idiom since you were young. Think it only applies to people? Think again, my friend. Case in point: Some restaurants might not look like anything special on the outside, but once you give them a fighting chance, your life (and lunch) will be changed forever. Here are 10 Colorado restaurants that may not look like much, but will blow away you and your tastebuds:
1) There Bar (Telluride)
Where are you going to eat after a long day of skiing? Why, There, of course! There Bar offers a wide variety of refreshing cocktails and dazzling cuisine that you’ll only find here. err, There.
2.) Smoken MOES Un-Real BBQ (Pagosa Springs)
Hands down the best barbecue this side of the Rocky Mountains — order whatever you like (you really can’t go wrong!)
3.) Ouray Brewery (Ouray)
Beers. Buffalo Wings. Burgers. It doesn’t get any better than the three Bs, and Ouray Brewing knows how to do it right.
4.) Nana Nano Monteleone’s Deli and Pasta House (Trinidad)
Authentic, homemade Italian food, just like your Nana used to make (order the meatball sandwich — you won’t be disappointed!)
5.) King’s Chef Diner (Colorado Springs)
An assortment of breakfast and lunch items fit for royalty (I just drooled a bit looking at those Huevos Rancheros!)
6.) Golden China (Limon)
What Golden China lacks on the outside, it makes up for tenfold on the inside. I have been to a lot of Chinese restaurants in my life, but this is still by far the best I’ve ever had (their Shrimp Vietnamese Bowl is to. die. for).
7.) Fatty’s Pizzeria and Sport’s Bar (Breckenridge)
This obviously isn’t a picture of pizza, BUT I had to show you that there is so much more to love about this local favorite.
8.) Bully’s (Fleming)
I really don’t think you can go wrong with anything you order at Bully’s — all of the made-from-scratch soups, entrees, and desserts are going to be the best thing to ever grace your tastebuds.
9.) Big Bear Bistro (Vail)
Oh, this? It’s just a banana and nutella crepe. NBD.
10.) Bonnie Brae Tavern (Denver)
This Denver institution has been serving up some of the area’s best pizza, burgers, and Mexican food for more than 80 years (which just goes to show that they’re doing something. scratch that; EVERYTHING right.)
