Denver/surrounding area restaurant suggestion

We'll be flying in to DEN at the end of August and plan to spend the night in or around the Denver area prior to departing the next morning for SD..so...two questions, I guess.

-Can anyone suggest an area around Denver (but not extremely citified) to stay. Based on my map, I was thinking Northglenn or Thornton? Would like to stay north or west of the airport but within a 40 or so min drive from the Lakewood area as we'll be meeting family from there.

-Looking for a restaurant suggestion (again, within 40 or so mins from Lakewood - preferably north/northeast)...family members suggested The Fort but they've already been there and it's a bit further from where we're planning to stay - if anyone has a similar restaurant they could suggest, that would be helpful! The only thing I have to be sure of is that there are a few vegetarian options for one of our guests. A great Mexican restaurant suggestion would be welcomed too!

Thanks so much!

You might think about one of the hotels along Quebec street, Doubletree Denver or the Holiday Inn, they are right by each other. It is an easy drive from the airport. Then if you'd like something more local for dinner Tables on Kearney is a great little neighborhood restaurant


we don't really have "great" mexican food here but I am a fan of Lola's http://www.loladenver.com/

There are a number of hotels/motels in Northglenn at I25 and 120th. There are tons of great restaurants in the Downtown Denver Lodo area and elsewhere. Buckhorn Exchange downtown might be interesting.

The whole Denver area seems pretty citified to me! How about Golden or Evergreen? There's a Comfort Suites on Evergreen Parkway that would have easy access to getting back in to the city. The Cabins at Country Road are highly rated here on Trip Advisor if you wanted something a little more unique, and there are several other choices. tripadvisor.com/Hotel_Review-g33415-d1777136…

Or how about the Table Mountain Inn in Golden? http://www.tablemountaininn.com/


There are several hotel choices at Westminster, (we've stayed at the LaQuinta and it was very comfortable, but there are other choices) and have enjoyed Que Bueno at Westminster Promenade.


But our favorite Mexican food is Little Anita's. We've only been to the little "hole in the wall" on Colorado, but there are several locations, expanding from their original restaurant in Albuquerque. They have the best sopapillas and green chili made from Hatch, NM green chiles. My husband is a fan of breakfast burritos and theirs is tied for his top all time favorite. tripadvisor.com/…REVIEWS www.littleanitas.com/home.colorado.html
