Guess where I'm eating? (And it's not Johnson's Corner)

Johnson's Corner, the classic truck stop just past the Berthoud exit on I-25, went through a major renovation a few years back that completely changed the joint, removing much of its '50s charm -- although we still considered it worthy of Guy Fieri's attentions on a recent Diners, Drive-Ins and Drives pass through Colorado.

But one thing remains the same: the Johnson's Corner cinnamon roll, touted as "world famous," and with good reason.

But now you don't need to drive 45 minutes to pick up one of these monsters.

Guess where I found a Johnson's Corner cinnamon roll at 5 a.m. this morning? It was just $2.49 -- a bargain for just 1140 calories!

Good thing the rolls served at the truck stop don't come with a side of "Nutrition Facts."

Special bonus: Anyone who gives the first correct answer to the week's Where am I drinking/eating posts is entered into a pool -- and every Monday, we select one lucky winner who'll receive a DINR deck, worth up to $520 in discounts at independent restaurants.

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.
