Fair enough. I'm certainly not crazy about the place, but it's the best I've found in Denver city limits, and I mostly only go for breakfast burritos.

I've only had little Anita's breakfast burritos when hungover, and while they're fine, the place is more of a fast food chain than cuisine destination

This I agree with. La Lomas has great green chile, but great green chile is not hard to find in CO.

Sea Food is harder for sure here, it has to be flown in so never as fresh as a costal city. However, Mead Street Tavern has some of the best fish and chips I have ever had. I am comparing that to Ireland and England as well. Maybe not the best, but definitely top 4. And I love fish and chips.

Food in CO has been good if you knew where to look, but there has been an explosion in the state over the past 10 years and food quality has shot up across the board. More high quality chefs seem to be coming here. Boulder was probably the front range's longest standing "foodie" city, but there are now so many new and great restaurants around Denver area too. It is not hard to find a quality gourmet pizza or burger joint (Ernies, Marco's Coal Fired, Osteria - pizzas; TAG Burger, Park Burger, Highland Tap & Burger, Colt & Gray - burgers). Delicious pig meat is also easy enough to find - try Denver Bacon Company bacon at least once. One of the best meals I've had in recent memory, even compared to my trips to NYC and LA - Old Major.

Asian food is great too. Uncle's sticky buns, Pho on every third corner of a major street, Sushi Sasa, dim sum at Star Kitchen, Thai Street Food.

But, Denver, if nothing else, is a Brunch city. Places get packed - Universal and Sasafrass are my two favorites right now. Both bringing some great fresh southern styles to Denver.

Someone mentioned no good mexican food in FoCo - When I was last there I went to a little taqueria on the corner of Prospect and College (caddy corner from Taco Bell) and it was incredible. Nothing like a tongue taco to power you up for some beer tours.

Colorado used to just have steaks, but the influx of people in the last decade has really pushed the area into having decent food as well.

One thing I will agree on is that New Mexican food in Denver is "ehhh." Julia Blackbirds might be the best I've had. The Jack N' Grill on Federal has always disappointed. The Jack N' Grill off 92nd and Sheridan is better.

Best bet is to pick up some hatch green chiles roasting on a street corner in the fall and make your own new mexican food.

I actually think their Green Chili is one of their worst items. It has a weird consistency. Brewery Bar 2 green chili is my style - also good gringo'fied crispy chile rellenos.

Yep, agreed.

Their red is fantastic.

Any and all recommendations are welcome!
we are doing nearly the exact same trip next month.

I love the hot green chile from Tamale Kitchen. Their restaurants can be a little inconsistent sometimes but they make a great egg, potato, bacon with chile inside breakfast burrito.

I moved down to Houston last year, and I hate the Mexican food here. Bland is being generous, as much as I've seen so far.
Pappa's BBQ is where it's at in Houston, man.

My family and i returned from our colorado vacation and found the food overall to be solid. Unfortunately we did not have great opportunities to hit up the great suggestions everyone posted as eating occurred around travel and naps. We did find the great northern to be solid for happy hour burger/beer grub.

We will return with the girls when they are older and hopefully hit up some of the finer cuisine. It is a pain in the neck to go out to eat w/little ones!

During our trip we did go out to dove valley and did the stadium tour. No players or coaches were around at the time. However, we did meet and chat w/Mike Shannahan at DIA for a few minutes as he had family coming to town on the same flight. Nice guy, was very friendly and it was cool to thank him for his efforts in Denver and wish him the best of luck on the upcoming season.

Never tried the Pappas bbq, there isn't one in the DFW area. Pappadeaux and Pappas burgers are pretty on point though.

Federal Blvd between Alameda and Evans is all Vietnamese basically.

New Saigon is your best bet, Miss I.

Anyone know if Kermit's off of I-70 in Idaho Springs is still open? I'm hearing different things. Best green chili I've ever had.

Thank you guys. Just checked into my hotel and I will definitely check out the recommendations, other than the dog pound.

It is so good to be in Denver. I feel enveloped in the awesomeness that is the Mecca of Broncodom. When we drove by the stadium I nearly wept.

And there is not that much snow, not really, I guess it melted in the city and by the airport very fast.

I love being here! Denver this week, then Estes Park to stay at the Stanley Hotel one night, then Colorado Springs. I heart you Colorado!
