It’s the freaking weekend, Colorado! This isn’t just any weekend though; it’s Independence Day weekend, meaning we get three GLORIOUS days off from work! If you are looking to treat yourself, your family, and your wallet to a delicious meal out this holiday weekend (that doesn’t eat up all of your holiday pay), you will definitely want to check out one of these 12 Colorado restaurants with meals for less than $10 per person:
1. Rudy's Bar-B-Q (Greeley)
What's more American this 4th of July weekend than tender, fall-off-the-bone meat slathered in a zesty BBQ sauce? (Even better? Everything on the menu is less than $10!)
2. Lucy's Place (Sedgwick)
Seeing as though Lucy's serves only the best home cooked and reasonably priced meals, it's no wonder this northeastern Colorado favorite has been in business for so long.
3. Tacos Tequila Whiskey (Denver)
♫ ...these are a few of my favorite things! ♫ (And apparently I'm not alone, as
named TTW as one of their "Best Cheap Eats in the Country.")
4. Floradora Saloon (Telluride)
For the last 40 years, Floradora has been serving the tastiest and most affordable grub to both Telluride locals and tourists alike.
5. King's Chef Diner (Colorado Springs)
Don't let its unsuspecting storefront fool you; King's Chef Diner has won multiple awards for its fabulous food, including "Tastiest Breakfast in Colorado" from Food Network!
6. Main Street Cafe (Grand Junction)
A good rule of thumb: If the name of a restaurant has the words "Main Street" in it, you are basically guaranteed a great meal at a reasonable price! (This also works for restaurants with "Mom" or "Grandma" in the name...)
7. Jim's Wings (Fort Collins)
During college, my friends and I loved hitting up Jim's for dinner before taking in a late night bowling special... why? Because not only are the wings magnificent, they are also magnificently CHEAP!
8. Frijoles Colorado (Lakewood)
Get ready to shake up your taste buds at this fresh and flavorful take on Cuban food!
9. Jenny’s Mexican Food (Limon)
The next time you travel east on I-70, don't stop at McDonalds; stop by Jenny's for COMPLIMENTARY made-from-scratch chips and salsa and a reasonably priced (and authentic) entree.
10. Baba's Burgers (Estes Park)
I think it's pretty safe to say that you will not find another yummy burger (or gyro), fries, and a drink combo in Estes for less than $10... you're welcome.
11. Giampietro Pasta & Pizzeria (Breckenridge)
You know those places in the mall where you can buy face-sized pizza by the slice? Giampietros is kinda like that but waaaaaaaaay better.
12. Grateful Deli (Aspen)
The fact that this Aspen favorite has both affordable food and a clever name kinda makes me wish I lived in Aspen so I could eat there every day...
