Bingo Burger brings together the best of both worlds. On one hand, Bingo Burger boasts some of Colorado’s most mouth-watering handcrafted burgers, served alongside a refreshing beer or an explosively flavoursome milkshake. On the other hand, Bingo Burger takes the rare step towards sourcing organically and locally, combining fresh ingredients with a made to order ‘fast food’ format, which means that customers can feel great about themselves while indulging in burger heaven. As if a solid, fresh burger was not enough, Bingo serves up a number of unique burger specials, from the lamb burger dripping with goat’s cheese and rosemary aioli, to the ‘peppersauce bottoms’ smothered in Thai peanut sauce and caramelised onions.

If there is one dish that encapsulates the culture and lifestyle of the rugged, rural Colorado plains, it is steak. Succulent, savoury, flavoursome and filling are key words at DJ’s Steakhouse, perhaps one of Pueblo’s premier locations to indulge in a cowboy’s choice cut. A welcome alternative to the chain restaurants populating the length of the highway, DJ’s is undeniably a local institution with a patina of authenticity. Diners rave over the filet mignon and prime-rib cuts, and marvel over the fresh loaf of bread brought to the table as an appetiser, with a choice of regular or cinnamon-infused butter. Vegetarians ought to look elsewhere.

Pho 50 is an oasis of that delicious Southeast Asian broth loaded with fresh vegetables, noodles and a choice of meats, seafood or even tofu. The venue is a welcome alternative to sloppy burgers, instead expanding the flavour of finely prepared meat into a personal cauldron of savoury and sweet. In addition to the namesake brothy soup, Pho 50 offers the Vietnamese and French baguette lovechild known as banh mi, as well as lo mein and even boba tea.
