Ten places for your to fill up near the Colorado Convention Center.

All that OR got you feeling a little peckish? Check out these tasty local joints for some grub.


Biju’s Little Curry Shop

Indian food to go? Hear us out. Biju’s packs bold, authentic flavor in an easy to-go bowl. Plus, they have vegan and gluten-free options.

What to get: The X-Hot Vindaloo Chicken Bowl. Warning: There’s a reason it’s called “X-hot”.

1441 26th Street 


Cosmos Pizza

You don’t need to be in New York to get a tasty slice of ‘za. Dial up an Uber and head over to Cosmos for a (massive) slice.

What to get: Any slice with a side of spicy ranch. Game. Changer.

550 Grant St


Food trucks

You never know what you’ll get, but it’s always worth a check. Most set up shop for lunch around 11am.

What to get: Whatever smells the best.


Sit down

Sam’s No. 3

This bustling hometown diner has some impressive stats. When a restaurant uses over 50 gallons of green chili each day you know it’s tasty.

What to get: The menu is huge, but you can’t go wrong with a burger and fries.

1500 Curtis Street


Zoe Ma Ma  

If you’re lookin’ to level up, go for some authentic Chinese street food. Zoe Ma Ma is nothing like the americanized chinese food you’re used to, and we mean that in the best way possible.

What to get: The Za Jiang Mian and CPR are both winners.

1625 Wynkoop St


Otra Vez Cantina

Sometimes, you just need some chips and salsa, and this is the most convenient place to get some near the Colorado Convention Center.

What to get: Literally anything in the Street Tacos category.

610 16th Street



Peaks Lounge

You might go for the bites and drinks, but you’ll definitely stay for the sunset view from the Hyatt Regency’s 27th floor.

What to get: The Colorado Lamb Meatballs are savory whether you’re sharing or not.  

650 15th St


Stoic & Genuine

So fresh. So tasty. This restaurant is where you break out the napkin bib and spring for a dozen oysters. If you can swing it, schedule your working dinner here.

What to get: This is where you get super-fresh oysters.

1701 Wynkoop Street



Grab a culinary masterpiece of an entrée or head upstair to the “highest open-air, seasonal rooftop bar.”

What to get: Ever had a Spinach and Avocado Caesar salad? This is the place to try it.

1455 California Street


BONUS: Casa Bonita

There’s a waterfall inside. Need we say more? You might know this place better as the birthday destination of Kyle from Comedy Central’s cartoon South Park.

What to get: What you need to get is there in time for a Dive Show.

6715 West Colfax Avenue
