We just unveiled the 34th annual Best of Denver edition, and one of our toughest choices was determining the Best Restaurant on Colfax Avenue, a strip where new spots keep popping up. We went with Chop Shop Casual Urban Eatery (which recently opened a second location in Lowry), but one reader vehemently disagrees. Says Candice:
Seriously, the Chop Shop? It's all right but the best restaurant on Colfax? Really? Honestly, some of the best food on Colfax is the Bourbon chicken joint: $8 for a fat plate of food. It tastes great and it's super cheap. I never got to check out everything; I moved away. But I did check out the Chop Shop and it's okay.
I am not dogging it, but I am not sure why Westword has these stupid categories and it's definitely not the best thing I ate on Colfax. It's a pretty long stretch of road.
Bourbon Grill has been a Best of winner in the past, but Chop Shop definitely has its fans. There's this from Jana:
