Colorado Roadfood Suggestions Needed

I’ve need to find places around Colorado that are best for::

Burgers
Slices of pie
Breakfast joints
Milkshakes
Fish tacos
Steakhouses
Placed for offbeat regional specialty (e.g. Rocky Mountain oysters, burritos or fried artichokes)

I have some favorites but would love some input from you Hounds too in case I am missing something that would be great. No Denver, Boulder, Colorado Springs or other significant cities. Smaller cities, town, roadside restaurants. Thanks.

  1. Patio Pancake in Salida has an awesome mexican breakfast; I sub the veggie green chile...

    1. McClellan's Grill and Brewing Co. in Canon City, CO for oustanding lunch or dinner. Main St. Cafe in Grand Junction, CO for good lunch or dinner. Rockslide Brew Pub in Grand Junction, CO for good road food for lunch or dinner. Farrell's Restaurant in Gunniso, CO for good breakfast or lunch with outdoor dining.

      McClellan's Grill and Brewing Co. @ 413 Main Street, Canon City, CO 719 - 276 - 3400.

      1. Claire, try the Ryus Avenue bakery in La Veta. Too many mix and match sandwiches to mention, but their jalapeno cheese bread on Saturdays is killer. And the pies....

        1. Larkburger in Edwards. Yes, they have locations in your verboten areas, but don't hold that against them. Excellent upscale burgers and the truffle parmesan fries are to die for.

          Eagle Diner in Eagle would be a good breakfast choice, or any other meal for that matter. Solid diner fare with some upscale touches, good service.

          1. The best milkshake I've ever had is at the Yellowstone Drug Store in Shoshoni, Wyoming. That's "around" Colorado by some definitions.

            The best posole is in Basalt, Colorado at a place called El Horizonte.

            The best Mexican all-you-can-eat buffet is in Alamosa, Colorado. It's Calvillo's. Some say it's the best Mexican food in Colorado.
