11 Mouthwatering Lunch Destinations In Downtown Denver That Won’t Break The Bank
Are you on a tight budget? Do you brown bag your lunch every day but wish you could go out for a hot and tasty meal? Maybe you’re just a broke and starving college student? I’ve been in each of these situations and know that it isn’t fun, but fortunately downtown Denver is chock-full of delicious and affordable restaurants, including these 11 mouthwatering lunch destinations:
1.) Sam's No. 3 (Denver Downtown)
Oh, Sam... just how do we explain our love for thee? Not only do you whip up some of the best green chile in the city, most of your filling meals cost less than $10 a plate! So, on behalf of every Denverite, I thank you.
2.) Biker Jim's Gourmet Dogs (Denver LoDo)
If you are anything like my family, you probably grill a few times a month... right? That being said, you are probably wondering why I am listing a hot dog joint on this list... right? Yeah, Biker Jim's dogs are unlike anything your hubby could ever grill (sorry, honey) with their innovative meats, toppings, and sides.
3.) Cherry Cricket (Denver Cherry Creek)
Denverites, rejoice! After a fire closed our favorite burger joint for several months, the Cherry Cricket is FINALLY getting ready to reopen! Let's celebrate with an infamous, made-to-order, and surprisingly affordable burger and fries meal!
4.) Denver Biscuit Company (Denver City Park)
My absolute favorite place to get breakfast in Denver is at the AMAZING Denver Biscuit Co., which serves homemade "Biscuits a Mile High" (like my favorite -- the Strawberry Shortcake!) at a completely doable price.
5.) Uber Eats (Denver Highland)
Great news, hungry Denverite: Not only can you get Uber's cheap and yummy eats at their Highland location, but you can now also get it
delivered to your door for FREE
6.) Santiago's (Denver Southwest)
Let's just say there is a reason why Santiago's is famous for having the best breakfast burrito in the city... Try one for yourself for only $2.25 a pop!
7.) The Market at Larimer Square (Denver LoDo)
"Locally loved since 1983," The Market at Larimer Square is home to an assortment of yummy foods like freshly made sandwiches, baked goods, and coffee, all served in a charming and serene storefront.
8.) Tamales By La Casita (Denver Highland)
YOU GUYS! I cannot even put into words how amazing the food is at Tamales By La Casita... but do you want to know the best part of all? Every item on their filling menu costs WELL under $10 (including their large combination plate, which costs a cool $7.50).
9.) Modern Market (Denver Central Business District)
In their own words, "Modern Market is healthy, chef driven, seasonal food made from ingredients that align with your values for about $10 in under 10 minutes." Need we say more?
10.) Tocabe, An American Indian Eatery (Denver Northwest)
All Chipotle'd out? Check out Tocabe, which offers a unique and flavorful twist to the beloved taco, nacho, and naked burrito bowl (like this incredible taco topped with fried bison)!
11.) Snooze: an AM Eatery (Denver Five Points)
With its numerous Denver locations, it is no wonder that Snooze is THE go-to for all things breakfast and brunch! An added bonus? You can score one of their huge plates and/or cocktails for a surprisingly low price.
