After the Hike: Local Favorites

Ali Baba Grill Food is good but service has really gone down hill.
109 N Rubey Dr, Golden CO — (303) 279-2228
Big Daddy Bagels If they have the green Chile bagel you owe it to yourself to try it with a Santa Fe. Great breakfast bagel.
106 N Rubey Dr, Golden CO — (303) 279-1481
Anthony's Pizza and Pasta Feed the sparrows some crust if your on the patio
600 12th St, Golden CO — (303) 278-9999
D'Deli Best Sandwich in Colorado.
Cafe 13 Good eats ! Pesto anything is a hit.
Snarf's Sandwiches Got the prime rib on gluten free, and it was on point. The peppers do have a kick, but still tolerable. Would recommend.
Woody's Pizza The pizza buffet is a must. Sure, unlimited salad and soup, but unlimited pizza??? Crazy good.
Table Mountain Grill & Cantina Bison burger is yummy. (Not game tasting at all!!)
Bob's Atomic Burgers Hailed as the best burgers in Golden, Bob's Atomic does not disappoint. 1 large fry will feed 2. If you order a double, order extra cheese. They only use one slice on a double. Place gets busy!
1310 Ford St, Golden CO — (303) 278-1601
Thai Gold Restaurant Lunch specials and Thai coffee
714 14th St, Golden CO — (303) 593-1715
Sherpa House Love the bottomless chai tea!!
Bonfire Burritos I dig it all. Best food trailer in Golden.
La Carreta I am a bit of a chile rellenos snob, and these folks make one of the best I've ever had. Order them crispy.
16908 S Golden Rd, Golden CO — (303) 271-9955
Mannie & Bo's Pizzeria Try an of their outrageous Calzones.
16399 S Golden Rd, Golden CO — (303) 277-1793
Tokyo Joe's Tuesdays and Thursdays - get a 1$ beer when u buy sushi
Red Robin Gourmet Burgers I'm sure it's like this at other locations, but too much pressuring to sign up for the loyalty card. Food arrives fast at least.
14183 W. Colfax, Lakewood CO — (720) 316-7364
Modmarket Great place to go after running the stairs at Red Rocks!!!
Five Guys Try the Cajun fries! They're delicious 
