Chow on 285 between Denver & SLV?

I'm going to be driving down Hwy. 285 between Denver and the San Luis Valley tomorrow and would love to get any recommendations for good eats along the way or redirects to earlier relevant threads. I usually hit the SLV (where my sister has a ranch) from the south but am varying the routine. I'll be driving back on Monday so later entries are welcome. Thanks in advance!

  1. It's mostly a culinary wasteland. Some choices in Conifer (like Hog Heaven BBQ which is ok), but by that's fairly close to Denver. A detour into Salida is probably your best bet.
