I will start this list out by saying that I am a man of simple taste when it comes to my meals so you won't be seeing a lot of 5 star chef inspired restaurants here. I am more of a simple meat and potatos kind of guy.
First on my list is the Cherry Cricket which has been featured on the Travel Channels Man vs Food. It is a burger joint that was started 1945 in the original owner's living room and has grown to be a denver landmark. It has an amazing 21 topping options for your burger. There most popular combustion is the jalapeño cream cheese burger.
Second on my list is Beaujos Colorado Style Pizza which has been featured on the Travel Channels Pizza Paradises. They started in 1973 in the small town of Idaho Springs just outside of Denver but have grown to many more locations in and around Denver. They have a unique take on pizza and it is called the Mountain Pie Pizza, defently something for the pizza lover to check out.Third on my list is Wing Slingers and as far as I known they have not made any nation wide tv show but they do seem to be popular with the Denver community as they have three locations. Let's be honest anyone that knows me will tell you if there is a place to get wings anywhere around that is where I will be. The main draw to try this one for me is the great sauce choices that I see on there menu.
Forth on my list is My Brother's Bar which looks and sounds like a good old fashioned local bar to just set back and relax with friends over a good meal. I am definitely going to have to try there version of the jalapeño cream cheese burger.
I hope to make all these great establishments during my stay in Denver and will post reviews of each one I try. If you know of other Restaurants that you would like to recommend just post them in the comments. Looking forward seeing your comments, having some great Denver food, and getting to the World's Fair of Money.
