    Good Times Burgers & Frozen Custard - 34 Colorado locations

    As the Chipotle IPO took off last week at a near-record pace, I visited another Colorado born-and-bred chain. Good Times -- which was founded in 1987, six years before the first Chipotle went up -- is a drive-thru burger joint in a world crowded with...

    Coffee's On - Monkey Bean doesn't monkey around.

    This place reminds me of someplace else," my friend says, leaning his chair back against the wall and tracing a finger along one of the cracks in the broken plaster. That wall -- multi-colored painted plaster over crumbling brick, the brick expos...

    Big Time - Taking the tube

    Those crazy kids at Monkey Bean (see review) have a cadre of fans -- and they know how to use them. During last year's Best of Denver voting, the ballot-stuffing for Monkey Bean was so wicked it would have made Boss Tweed and those cats from Tammany ...

    Le De Luxe Martini - Bar Luxe

    Popular, you're gonna be popular! In Wicked, when the male lead asks, "So -- what's the most swankified place in town?," good witch Galinda answers, "That would be the Ozdust Ballroom." If the Broadway show were set in Denver, she definitely would ha...

    Java Moon - A new Moon is rising.

    There was a time when Java Moon was hailed as the conquering hero of the Golden Triangle. It was a coffeehouse in a neighborhood that desperately needed one (you know, to balance out all the dive hotels and new lofts and pawnshops and galleries and w...

    A Happy Ending - Carmine's on Penn proves that fairy tales can come true.

    Once upon a time, in a land not so very far away, there was a restaurant ruled by a king named Larry. Now, King Larry wasn't an evil king. He wasn't cruel or ruthless, as kings so often are. He didn't abuse the peasantry of Hotcakesland, didn't c...

    Herz Tries Harder - Larry Herz just can't get enough.

    After visiting Carmine's on Penn (see review), I decided to check in with Carmine's original owner, Larry Herz. I hadn't talked to him since he announced he was closing his Go Fish Grille, at 250 Josephine Street (which had replaced his Indigo at the...

    Margarita de la Casa - Seor Ritas

    Backcountry Brewery - It's all downhill at this Frisco brewpub.

    My New Year's resolution is to be like U.S. Representative Tom Tancredo, only a little more conservative. I decided this after spending part of the holidays in Summit County with several million people from out-of-state who I doubt had ever sat in ch...

    3 Sons - Once more unto the breach

    When I wrote my original review of 3 Sons ("Same Old, Same Old," September 11, 2003), people called me an assassin. They called me a thug and an asshole and a brainless, potty-mouthed jerkoff who didn't know nothin' from nothin'. What I didn't get wa...

    Shakin' Bacon - Masalaa makes good food that happens to be good for you.

    Family Plan - Don't try this at home.

    The problem wasn't so much that we were drinking, but that neither of us had really stopped in a couple of days. When my little brother and I get together back home -- as annually as we can manage -- drinking is just what we do. It's not to excess...

    Spanky's Roadhouse - Food, fun and Farley

    I believe Spanky's Roadhouse (1800 East Evans Avenue) chose its name in hopes of generating buzz before patrons even crossed the threshold. Whenever anyone who was born at least twenty years ago hears the word "roadhouse," he immediately thinks of th...

    Five in 2005 - For restaurants, this was a very good year.

    I consider it one of the great fortunes of my life that, for as long as I have been my own man, I have never had a normal year -- one that could be anticipated, seen through end to end, navigated on an even keel. All of my years have been strange and...
