After the Ride: Local Favorites

The Saraha Cafe Good, inexpensive food, great service.
JP's Asian Bistro Lunch costs less than $10 and includes rice, soup, a spring roll, and a wonton. Not to mention an entree. It's a great value!
Rudy's Country Store and Bar-B-Q 18 people I know on foursquare have been to Rudy's So it has to be good right. Which is is ver good.
Paravicini's Italian Bistro Ted Sexton and Franco Pisani, the owners, opened their doors, just minutes from our Old Colorado City home, to rave reviews and Franco, the head chef, deserves every one of them.
Garden of the Gods Gourmet This visit was a struggle from the moment we entered the restaurant
Pizzeria Rustica Bring your dog sit on the patio and order the Margherita and house cab!
Dat's Italian! Excellent food. Family-owned and very nice people.
La Baguette Bakery The best French onion soup in town.
Front Range BBQ Nom! Get the beef brisket sammich and a sweet tea! For a side, go with the red beans and rice, fries were alright though.
Wimberger's Old World Bakery Best bread ever! Great meat selection. Some things are very expensive, however.
Mountain Shadows Restaurant Great food, fantastic service. Ben, Kasey and Tara are practically members of my family! Love this place. :)
Cy's Drive-In Awesome malts! Great burgers!
Los Dos Potrillos Best Sunday Brunch!!!
Virgilio's Pizzeria & Wine Bar This suburban pizzeria has happy hour you don’t want to miss. It’s hard to pass up on $4 glasses of wine and $3.50 premium well drinks, not to mention the $5 twenty-ounce sangrias
Chick-fil-A C470 & Kipling I love chik fil a ! Just don't even think about coming on Sunday !
Panino's Downtown Best homemade paninos in town!
Western Omelette Thick cut Bacon! Good sourdough toast, just get the hashbrowns crispy.
King's Chef Diner Feel free to make fun of the entitled who bitch about the music, that they don't take plastic, or that the staff didn't kiss their whiny ass. They can go to Dennys.
The Rabbit Hole Drink a lot. Have fun. They'll take care of you.
