LOOKING FOR GOOD FOOD From El Paso - Denver
- ptcandy Jun 20, 2007 03:32 AM
Wife and I going on a big road trip in July. Beginning in EL PASO, going to CARLSBAD, NM, ROSWELL, NM, SANTA FE, DURANGO, CO, MOAB, UT. GRAND JUNCTION, CO., and ending up in DENVER . I am looking for good eats along the way. Also, is Cattleman's Steakhouse at Indian Cliffs Ranch worth the trip?
Thank you very much.
Yes, don't start (or end) in El Paso. Just kidding.
I'm assuming you're not looking for fine dining recs right off the highway or you'll be disappointed. (Well, that's not completely true when you make it through ski resort country. There are a slew of places now in Edwards, for example, so you don't necessarily have to stop off in Aspen.)

Fruita Brewing Co. has inoffensive though unremarkable pub food, although I was last there in '05.
Open Table shows a place open now in GJ called 626 on Rood (Modern American Cuisine and Wine Bar) that sounds intriguing, but I haven't been & the website isn't functional.
