10 Iconic Foods Every Denverite Should Try At Least Once

We sure know how to eat well in the Mile High City, and we’ve been doing so since the pioneers roasted buffalo and potatoes over their campfires along the South Platte River. The origin of some of these iconic foods from Denver can probably be traced back to the old frontier days, while others came onto the scene in more recent years. When it comes to Mile High cuisine, one thing’s for sure – we love our meat and potatoes, especially when combined with hatch green chiles of nearly any variety.
