5 Colorado Restaurants That Are So Much More Than Amazing Places To Eat
Restaurants with delicious food are great, but have you ever been to a restaurant that has BOTH fantastic food and an equally memorable ambiance? Fortunately, Colorado is home to many of these places, including these 5 that are so much more than just incredible places to eat:
1. San Isabel Lodging (Rye)
For home-cooked fare as good as - if not better than - grandma used to make (sorry, grandma), look no further than San Isabel Lodging! Located in Rye, San Isabel is home to not just a must-visit restaurant but also comfortable lodging, a campground, and an adorable shop.
2. The Fort (Morrison)
What was initially built as a dream home has turned into one of the most iconic restaurants in the Denver area - and for a good reason! Modeled after the historic Bent's Fort in La Junta, The Fort is home to the most mouthwatering Old West-inspired food (prime rib or locally-grown steak, anyone?), plus tons of fascinating, museum-quality artifacts and decor, and on-site tours.
3. Aquarium Restaurant (Denver)
You know that the Downtown Aquarium is one of the
best aquariums in the country
, but did you know that it is also home to a beautiful restaurant? The next time you visit the Aquarium, be sure to treat yourself (and all of your senses) to an unforgettable meal at this Denver favorite.
4. The Airplane Restaurant (Colorado Springs)
As the name suggests, part of the Airplane Restaurant is, indeed, inside of an airplane! In addition to the Boeing KC-97 tanker itself, the Airplane Restaurant also has a second, more traditional restaurant on-site with hundreds of photos, rare artifacts, and memorabilia.
5. Rudy's "Country Store" and Bar-B-Q (Greeley and Colorado Springs)
With 2 convenient locations, you are never too far from some lip-smacking Texas BBQ, a la hearty sandwiches, baby back and spare ribs, sausage, prime rib, and other favorites. As if you needed another reason to visit (and love) Rudy's, the restaurant also features a country store that is chock-full of apparel, unique gifts, and at-home BBQ essentials.
