Reader: So Tocabe Will Be the Next Trend for Douchebag "Foodies"?

For years, we've heard that Tocabe: An American Indian Eatery, which opened in northwest Denver in December 2008, would soon have a second outlet -- maybe in downtown, maybe on Broadway, maybe in Aurora, on Broadway. But now that second Tocabe is becoming a Centennial? See also: Tocabe Does Chipotle One Better -- With Fry Bread

Says Michael:

Jesus. Centennial? Why open in that god-forsaken beige hellhole?

Elicia sounds willing to go anywhere for one Tocabe speciality:

Their buffalo ribs really need to be classified as a controlled good.

And Steven has his doubts:

So what was originally an imitation of another street food is now going to be next trend for douchebag "foodies"?
What do you think of Tocabe's new location? Will the "foodies" flock to Centennial?
