Support the independent voice of Denver and help keep the future of Westword free.

Canadian steakhouse chain the Keg Steakhouse & Bar staked out a spot in LoDo in the early days of the 21st century, serving wallet-friendly steaks, like a signature baseball sirloin, and other family-oriented fare in the quickly growing neighborhood. But competition is now fierce in that booming restaurant market ,and the LoDo Keg has closed.

Soon after that Keg opened, we dined there with legendary concert promoter and beef aficionado Barry Fey, who said: "This is not a steakhouse. This is a restaurant." But the eatery at least honored Fey's request for Heinz 57 steak sauce, one of his measures of a true steakhouse. Whether you like your cut with or without Heinz 57, you're not entirely out of luck: The Keg operates another branch on West Colfax Avenue in the Colorado Mill shopping center.

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.
