Boone's is a neighborhood joint near the University of Denver, which explains the name: Denver Boone was DU's official mascot from 1968 to 1998. But Boone's isn't just about DU. It's "state-triotic," according to co-owner Rob Lanphier, featuring just beers from Colorado, stocking about half of its bar with liquors from Colorado, and "trying to do as much Colorado-sourced food as humanly possible." The majority of the food is made from scratch, including barbecue. "The thing we try to strive for is having great food, basically," Lanphier says. "Better food than people would expect in a neighborhood tavern." Welcome to the neighborhood.
