After the Hike: Local Favorites

Susie's Westside Cafe They serve Calligrate Beef, local, hormone-free. Delicious!
Rudy's Little Hideaway It's all about the green chile!! And the new patio is great for happy hour.
Wimberger's Old World Bakery Best bread ever! Great meat selection. Some things are very expensive, however.
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.
Texas Roadhouse If you're a transplant from the South like me, this place is basically like Logan's Roadhouse right down to the complimentary rolls and peanuts. The flavors are different but it's pretty good overall.
La Unica Best cheese enchiladas, mole (only place I will eat mole), and tacos in town. The margs rock too!
Joseph's Fine Dining Table side bananas foster is the best dessert in town !
Urban Steam Great coffee, a good salad & some nice tunes playing today (70s rock/blues)!
Omelets, Etc. I love ordering here, and I love that they delivery. Their French toast, while classic, is delicious. They're fast, their service rocks, and the food rocks.
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.
Bon Ton's Cafe Eat on the patio during the summer!
Pizzeria Rustica Bring your dog sit on the patio and order the Margherita and house cab!
Uchenna Eat with your hands. Share. Really, the extra injera is better than any fork.
Jake & Telly's Greek Cuisine Excellent food. Great staff. Never a bad meal.
Jorge's Chile rellenos and chicken flautas are both great -- and a Grand Tivo margarita makes them even better!
La Baguette Bakery The best French onion soup in town.
Dat's Italian! Excellent food. Family-owned and very nice people.
Mountain Shadows Restaurant Great food, fantastic service. Ben, Kasey and Tara are practically members of my family! Love this place. :)
