Best of Denver

Ten best places for pre/post-show eats on Colfax

Page 2 of 4

10. Barracuda's, 1076 Ogden Street The more you drink, the better Barracuda's gets -- and it definitely gets the job done. Barracuda's is a neighborhood joint just off Colfax with a ton of character and devoted patrons. It's dark, plays terrible music and serves up burgers, sandwiches and breakfast until 4 a.m. on the weekends. If you really feel like you still need drink at this point, Barracuda's also has a full bar.

9. Rockbar, 3015 East Colfax Avenue Nothing like keeping the party going at your favorite neighborhood sweat-box, Rockbar. We know you're skeptical about this one -- but Rockbar has a full kitchen that pumps out tasty bar food like fries and mini corn-dogs. Take a break from the dance floor and find a place to try the surprising delicacies Rockbar has to offer. If it's harming the experience, try not to think about the kitchen and the dance floor existing in the same place.

8. Denver Diner, 740 West Colfax Avenue Denver Diner is a local landmark, and a cult-favorite for washing away current or future hangovers. Open 24 hours, serving a bounty of pancake stacks, huevos rancheros and cheese fries, this place is always filled with a diverse array of Denver locals, young and old. If you're looking to justify some over-indulgent food decisions, do it here. Try the Santa Fe burrito, a smothered, melty, beef creation covered in eggs and hash browns.
