Food & Drink

After the Run: Local Favorites

Texas Roadhouse I don't know what's more delicious. My steak or the men who work here.
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 !
Tamale Kitchen Everything is good here, I like the picadillo burrito smothered, but have never had anything that wasn't good. Best tamales araound!!
pierre michel french cafe Everything is always so good here and the chef always explains the dish so beautifully! Would definitely recommend for smaller groups especially one on one time with someone not 5 or more. Small venue
Chipotle Mexican Grill Not impressed tonight used old peppers and onions instead of fresh cooked
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!
Corner Bakery Cafe Sit out on the patio and watch the impatient Highlands Ranch drivers collide...it is a frequent occurrence!
Nono's Cafe I love the Monica Smothered Catfish -- YUM! Very filling and very flavorful.
Crave Real Burgers - Highlands Ranch Crave isnt about atmosphere or a pretty and organized kitchen / managers office. It's about awesome, crazy burgers and fantastic shakes. Just like the Castle Rock location, this place delivers.
Garbanzo Meal for 4 after 4 for $25. Amazing.
Which Wich? Superior Sandwiches Gets mobbed with school kids at lunch during the school year
Fujiyama Sushi & Hibachi Outstanding salmon and yellow tail sashimi. Large pieces that were very tasty.
Qdoba Mexican Grill Mango Salad is back for a limited time! It features seasonal mango salsa made with cucumber, red bell peppers and diced red onion.
The Egg & I Everything I have tried has been great. Flavorful, fresh ingredients, fantastic pancakes. Staff is friendly and efficient
Chick-fil-A Brand new store; these guys don't yet have it together. They excel at selling their food with a smile, but they don't yet know how to serve the customer.
Wahoos Fish Tacos The baja chicken rolls are awesome.
Oriental Cafe Low mein with chili oil is delicious!
