Six restaurants where Obama should eat near the University of Denver

Independent of his wife's stance on healthy eating, here's what we know about President Obama's food preferences: He likes pizza, as evidenced by his recent jaunt to the Sink in Boulder; he has a special fondness for burgers, a fact that's been documented in just about every city he's graced, including Arlington, Virginia, where he once treated Russian President Dmitry Medvedev to "real American burgers," except that Obama ordered cheddar cheese rather than American (blasphemy!), and he asked for it - gasp - medium-well; he likes hot dogs, too -- especially chili dogs and Costco dogs -- although his doctors have called his obsession with wieners (Mitt Romney notwithstanding) "deadly," and he definitely has an obsession with pie, be it pumpkin, pecan or apple.
