Chicken wings, green chile -- purportedly the best in Denver, if you believe Dennis Krieger -- and sandwiches just got easier to come by if you're a student at the University of Denver. That's because Krieger, along with his son Max, a recent DU Hotel and Restaurant Management grad, just unleashed Zingers at 2075 South University, smack-dab in the middle of the DU 'hood.
The fast-casual joint opened yesterday, and according to Krieger, he's got a hit. "People from all over the neighborhood came down, and we gave each person an anonymous feedback form, and everyone raved about the food," says Krieger. "Admittedly, we just opened, but the grand opening was great, and we couldn't be happier about the way it turned out."
The space is small, but brightly decorated with '60s and '70s rock-and-roll memorabilia, including tables laminated with old album covers and ticket stubs from legendary bands like the Grateful Dead, Jimi Hendrix, Neil Young and the Beatles -- "all the good stuff," says Krieger.
The hours are Monday through Saturday, 11 a.m. to 9 p.m., and Sunday, noon to 9 p.m. For more info, call 303-733-3573.
