new job.. new eats... I70 & kipling, lakewood co

so just started a new job near I70 & Kipling.. such a strange little area, such a mish-mash of businesses, open fields and semi-industrial areas. I haven't had much time to explore much as I just started... and of course near the highway there are lots of fast-food and semi-fast food options, but of course I'd prefer something a little different.

I'm looking mostly for lunch options, so "quick" or "quiker" is best... but there are also those times I might want to take my time.

thanks in advance.

  1. Davie's Chuck Wagon Diner is a classic and one of my favorites. Located on Colfax near Kipling.
    KoKoRo is on Wadsworth, just south of I-70. It's part of a very small chain and I believe it's the only location in Denver.

    1. I moved away years ago so I can't give a recent rec. but Alamos Verdes Restaurante seemed well liked (closer to Wadsworth). Also a nice Italian market on 38th in Wheat Ridge, but the name escapes me.

      1. Take I70 west to Colorado 58 to Golden (5 minutes) and try Table Mountain Inn for lunch.
