There is a lot to see in the historic Old Colorado City, but don’t forget to check out the restaurants as well. Old Colorado City promises great food with lots of personality and just a dash of that classic Wild West flavor. Here are ten restaurants that are well worth a visit.
Just as the name states, Alchemy, Not Just a Pub isn’t just a pub but something much better. No boring burger menu here; Alchemy offers a selection of sandwiches and more filling options, like stir fry, jerk chicken and shepherd’s chili. You guessed it: the menu doesn’t fit into any one category or cuisine. They also have six Colorado micro-brews on tap and a specialty cocktail list; perfect for that after-dinner tipple.
Opening hours: Mon to Sun 11-2am
An authentic Spanish style tapas restaurant, TAPAteria is a staple of the Old Colorado City restaurant scene. Tapas bars are common finds nowadays. However, TAPAteria is unique in its affordable, share-friendly dishes and festive atmosphere. Their more popular dishes include chorizo and figs, baby calamari, and goats cheese salad. In the warmer months, the owners even open up the back patio for some outdoor fun.
