Every Restaurant and Bar Opening and Closing This Week

McCoy's Restaurant maintains a decidedly old-school approach, with no website or Instagram account where influencers go to post their pancake pics. But even the most die-hard diner must eventually modernize, so McCoy's closed for a remodel in early January. Truckers, night owls and north Denver families are now welcome to return, though, as the 24-hour eatery unveiled its new look this week. McCoy's has earned several Best of Denver awards over the years, including best dinner after 1 a.m., best steak and eggs, and best 24/7 diner. The look may be new, but the restaurant is still the real McCoy.

Another Denver favorite, Hacienda Colorado, has teamed up with Uncle Julio's Mexican Restaurant (a Texas chain) to bring a collision of Mountain Mex and Tex-Mex to Wheat Ridge. On February 18, the two companies unveiled their two-story joint restaurant, where guests can get mesquite-grilled fajitas or Hacienda's Ultimate Burrito. Here's a peek at the complete menu, mashed up like a good guacamole.
