Aaaand, there off!

1. Red Robin
Yep, it's a chain and all, but it serves kick-ass Chocolate Shakes and they give you the remaining shake still in the metal mixer. Plus, if you want an adult beverage, there is Guinness on tap! But what makes this the best place is the fact that it is usually where I meet my old Sun Micro friends (GKL to all of you)for lunch. And the best part about eating out is who you get to spend time with, right?

2. CB Potts
Really great beer and some surprisingly good food for a bar. They have daily specials that are good, and make their own brews. Big old wall of TV for the hockey games also.

3. Senior Sols
My favorite Mexican place, out on the west side of the Denver Metro area. Small, family owned, they know how to make food. Killer Chili rellenio(sp) and 3 sizes of Margaritas - big, extra big, and why are my feet numb?

side note, have you all noticed the part alchohol is playing here? We continue...

4. Carabas
Another chain, but really good food, at a decent price, and it is staggering distance from my house.

5. Last but not least, Beau Joe's Pizza
This place started up in my home town of Idaho Springs, and has expanded out to a couple of different locations. They call their signature pizzas mountain pies, and you buy them not by the size, but by the pound. Whole wheat crust? Come on, who else does that with enough toppings to make it illegal to drive past the weigh and check station for the 18 wheelers?

Lastly, it must be said that dining out really isn't big with my family. On the rare occasions we do get out, we tend to grab a quick bite to eat and then focus on going somewhere to see a play or movie or whatever. We don't live to eat, we just eat to live.

Tag you're it goes out to My sister, Dick Small, GKL, Big Orange, and Vikki, so they can all crush me...


  1. Even the chains are interesting because they're be regional-- I'd never heard of the ones you listed.

    Since I've worked in restaurants for the past 27 years, I don't go out to eat a whole lot myself. And I like to cook.

    Gadzooks, i've been tagged!!

    I'm assuming you're FAVOURITE restaurants, NOT just the one's you actually GO TO. Most of mine are out-of-state or closed or burned to the ground in 1978.

    Where I ACTUALLY go, with 2 autistic kiddies and no babysitter, can be summed up in these comments:

    1. McDonalds
    2. Burger King
    3. Sonic
    4. Golden Coral

  3. Hey, you can eat what you want - you're 50 now! Happy Birthday again!
