12 Bucket List Worthy Restaurants To Try In Colorado, One For Each Month Of The Year
Who’s ready to eat? *enthusiastically raises both hands* One of the MANY great parts of living in the Centennial State is access to every kind of cuisine you can imagine… but where does one begin? We recommend starting now and following this bucket list of 12 can’t-miss Colorado restaurants:
January: Mac Nation (Indian Hills)
Does anyone get depressed once the holidays have ended and it's cold and depressing outside? Do you know what we like to do to remedy this situation? We like to splurge on comfort food at Mac Nation, which is home to a whopping 37 kinds of macaroni and cheese (a la Chicago Pizza, Astoria Truffle Shuffle, and Big Italy).
February: Allred's Restaurant (Telluride)
February is the month of love (including bromances and galentines), so what better time than now to visit the one and only Allred's? Accessible only by gondola, Allred's is home to some of the best views in the state, as well as one of the best wine collections.
March: Totally 80's Pizza (Fort Collins)
Do you want to know what's rad? Colorado is home to the ONLY 1980s museum, which is located inside the tubular Totally 80's Pizza! Don't be an airhead... book it to FoCo and get a slice of Totally 80's ASAP! Cool beans?
April: Edelweiss German Restaurant (Colorado Springs)
"Edelweiss, edelweiss, every morning you greet me"... with delicious German fare! Located in Colorado Springs, Edelweiss will make you think you have left the Centennial State for a cafe in Germany, thanks to its authentically German ambiance and cuisine. Prost!
May: Buckhorn Exchange (Denver)
How have we made it this long into the year without visiting the oldest restaurant in Colorado? Let's change that, shall we? Welcome to the Buckhorn Exchange: Colorado's oldest and most beloved restaurant that is home to some of the best Rocky Mountain Oysters, beef and buffalo steak, and game plates in the state.
June: Restaurant 1858 (Colorado Springs)
Summer is in full swing, so what better time than now to hike the jaw-dropping Seven Falls and dine at the waterside Restaurant 1858? Whether you're eating solo, with someone you love, or with a large group, you will never forget your first trip to this historic Colorado gem.
July: Mountain View Yogurt Plus (Woodland Park)
In the summertime, when the weather is high, nothing satisfies quite like ice cream, one of our favorites, oh which, comes via Mountain View Yogurt! Need we mention there are 35+ flavors plus tantalizing toppings?
August: Greeley Pizza Co. (Greeley)
School will be back in session soon, so what better time to go out for a slice (or 5) of pizza from your favorite pizzeria? For us, the best pies come from the Greeley Pizza Co., which serves made-from-scratch pizza, wings, breadsticks, and more.
September: The Railyard (La Junta)
Colorado got its start with the railroad, so it should only make sense that we have a train-themed restaurant on our list. Welcome to the charming Railyard, a welcoming small-town eatery complete with railroad decor, all of your favorite drinks, and delicious home-cooked grub.
October: Linger (Denver)
It's the spookiest time of the year, and there is no better place to dine than the old Olinger Mortuary! Okay, so it isn't technically still a mortuary, but rather the trendy Linger Eatury, which boasts not only delicious food but coffin-shaped menus, formaldehyde water bottles, and other morbid touches.
November: Ski Tip Lodge (Keystone)
Slopes are open, and you know what that means... it's après season! If you need to refuel after a long day of skiing, treat yourself to a 4-course at the beautiful Ski Tip Lodge. Bon appétit!
December: Oscar's Cafe (Durango)
Since calories do not count during the holiday season, NOW is the perfect time to splurge on all of your breakfast favorites, courtesy of Oscar's Cafe! Whether you crave homemade biscuits and gravy, a gigantic cinnamon roll, or a ginormous smothered burrito, you are guaranteed the best at Oscar's.
