Five Walk-Up Windows to Hoof It to When You're Hungry in Denver

Last week we shared our list of the ten best tiny restaurants in Denver; To the Wind Bistro came in as the smallest, at only nineteen seats. We only considered full-service eateries for that list; many smaller counter-service and fast-casual restaurants in the metro area serve up good food with far fewer seats than that. And what about places with no indoor seating? Walk-up windows are not common in the city, but there are a few that service the pedestrian community, whether they're strident striders or late-night drinkers looking for an easy place to grab a bite. Here are five legit locations where you can leave the car behind and hoof it over for a meal.
