Adventures in weird business combos: Burritos, gym equipment and sometimes barbecue

Have you ever been waiting on a burrito or deep fried pork and felt the urge to drop $1,200 on a weight lifting machine? No? Suit yourself. This building on the corner of West 38th Avenue and Utica Street will do just fine without you . . . probably. And if neither of those selections catch your fancy, the place usually, but not always, offers barbecue. Some might not feel entirely comfortable purchasing food from the same place that sells "Metalhead of America" gym equipment, and to them we say, "That's fair." But it makes a perfect fit for our series chronicling weird business combos.

Support the independent voice of Denver and help keep the future of Westword free.

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
