Hello, San Franciso hound here.

My husband and I are staying in Lone Tree for a week. Any favorites in Lone Tree or nearby will be appreciated!! We eat all types of food. Fancy or not, truck or restaurant. Cafe's to hang out and read it would be great too.

I've looked through the board and think I can find things for Denver and Colorado Springs. We plan to venture there when we can.

Thanks very much!

    thre are some pretty good places to eat in lone tree that are mostly chain restaurants. If you like good crispy chili rellanos there is the Brewery Bar. A place that looks good but i have not been to yet is White Chocolate

      I don't know that area, but you're really just in a Southern suburb of Denver, so any Denver option should be fairly accessible so long as you don't try to get there during rush hour. If you search the board for "Tech Center" or maybe "Highlands Ranch" you should find a few things closer by.

        Pho Saigon - on Arapahoe. There's a good Indian place in the same strip mall but I can't remember the name. Also on Arapahoe, Pat's Cheesesteaks.

        Steakhouses:
        Shanahan's
        Mortons
        Flemings

        You can also search Denver Tech Center, Streets of Southglenn (not too far), Highland's Ranch, plus it's really not a bad drive to Cherry Creek (Wordly BBQ) or downtown. Search the boards for recs, there's been quite a few posts lately.

        I personally don't like Brewery Bar II, but other people really like it. Guacamole was decent but the green chile left alot to be desired. Of course green chile is a very personal thing in this area.

        It's very suburban so of course there are chains galore.

            I really liked their brisket & ribs. The pork we had was dry. I like that the meat doesn't come with sauce. The smoke flavor wasn't ovewhelming, but just enough. There is a station set up with all the sauces & you get your own. You can fill a small (ketchup size) plactic cup & try them all. I did love the housemade potato chips, I crave those! You wouldn't think a good bbq place would be in Cherry Creek, but my family & I like it.
            I want to try Big Hoss BBQ next.

          I hate to say this as I am a firefighter in Lone Tree, but if you want local, non-chain food, you're in a rough area. There is a Japanese steakhouse called Miyama where I've had decent food. For a quick take-out lunch try Illegal Pete's (I like the Big Fish, essentially a fish stick burrito) or a build-your-own salad at Mad Greens, both on County Line Road. For a good breakfast burrito I like Jump Start, a breakfast burrito cafe oddly tucked into an automotive break shop.

          My honest advice: get on the light rail train which has several stops in Lone Tree, take the 25 minute ride (guestimate) into denver where you can walk to plenty of Denver's top restaurants. You can be back in time for bed.

            Thank you, everyone -- I had no clue about surrounding areas or the Light Rail option. Will report back any favorites of our trip!
