Any recommendations for affordable eating in this area of Denver? Thanks.

  1. What is your idea of cheap?

    Without knowing that I would suggest Cherry Cricket and Soleil off the top of my head but getting an idea of price range and cuisine or other restrictions would help.

      Any cuisine is fine. I'm thinking places that do take-out, say $25 per person at most. What type of places are the ones you listed?

      1. re: sku

        I'm not sure if Rodney's does takeout, but entrees are about $10-$15. Try the flat burger.

          Cherry Cricket is burgers. Soleil is Mediterranean. Both would fit in under the $25 per person. Hapa sushi also has a decent happy hour that you could probably do for under $25 pp.

      2. Not sure if you will consider this really cheap, but I love Rodney's. I think their burgers are even better than the Cherry Cricket.

        1. you can't go wrong with the cricket burger... always a fun time... for a great dinner with a group (2 at least) hop to wash park and have an italian family style dinner at carmines on penn... you are crazy if you miss troy cone, denver's best bartender (imho) when he is at the bar, it is sure to be one the best dining experiences you've ever had... (food is ok, maybe not the best CH food, but the service he gives makes up for it... ask for one of his fancy gelato cocktails he'll make you for dessert...)

          1. Hapa Sushi does a lunchtime Bento Box that is a steal for under $10. You could also check out the Cherry Creek Grill.

            Brix used to fit your bill perfectly, but they upped the prices on their menu about a year ago without improving their food at all. Not cool and we haven't been back since the price of everying increased by more than 50%.

            For pub food and a beer, I quite like The Irish Hound.

            It's possible to get out of Little Ollie's for under $25 a person.

            1. There is a Whole Food in Cherry Creek with prepared foods, fresh-made sandwiches and a soup and salad bar. Over on Colorado Blvd at 8th Ave is the Spicy Pickle (a local chain, I think) that has soups, sandwiches and salads. Heidi's Deli and Swing Thai are in the same area. None of these are fine dining, but definietly take-out and well within your price range.
