Openings and Closings

Last Denver Trail Dust bites the dust

It's now safe to wear ties in the southern 'burbs, because Denver's last Trail Dust Steak House has bitten the dust. A call to the restaurant at 7101 South Clinton Street in Centennial nets you just this: "The South Denver Trail Dust has closed for business."

The north Denver Trail Dust, in Westminster, closed a few years ago; neither cheap steaks nor the tie-cutting shtick was enough to save either Colorado store. But the original Trail Dust, in Arlington, Texas, is still going strong after forty years.
