Proclaiming itself to be the Cheers of Lakewood, Chad's Grill has dedicated nearly 30 years to the quelling of rumbling bellies with a savory menu of classic, scratch-made comfort dishes crafted with ingredients sourced from Colorado farms. Diners can anchor incisors into a juicy, fresh, fire-roasted rotisserie chicken ($9.99/quarter, $12.99/half). A savory selection of steaks includes the thinly sliced london broil served with buttermilk chive mashers ($12.99), while a half-pound burger furnishes protein patties with a pair of bread-mittens ($8.79). A heaping helping of grown up mac ‘n’ cheese ($9.99) foils ravenous fork-wielding toddlers by sealing smoked gouda, asparagus, sundried tomatoes, and penne pasta beneath a formidable parmesan crust. Stock up on greens with a Santa Fe barbecue chicken salad drizzled in a chipotle ranch dressing ($9.99/full, $7.99/half), or browse Chad's gluten-free menu for a wide selection of breadless options.

Chefs at Barroco Grill craft Colombian street fare from scratch, nabbing glowing reviews from Cleveland Scene and a nod from Cleveland Magazine’s Best of 2011 list. The signature arepas—which Cleveland Scene lauds as “hot, corny, and crisp”—hug melted mozzarella and succulent meats inside a pocket of all-white corn batter. Chefs also drizzle plates with creative flourishes such as wasabi coleslaw and peanut cream sauce. Beneath the dining room’s exposed wooden beams, snippets of brick walls peek out from behind artwork by local artists and high-functioning house pets.

John Pinelli had lived across the country, but he always returned to one place: Philadelphia. Each year, no matter where he was, he would come back to that city like a boomerang. A very hungry boomerang. During his visits, he devoured cheese steaks, Italian hoagies, water ice, and Tastykakes snack pies. He just wished he could bring one of those restaurants back to his home in Denver. Instead, he opened South Philly Cheese Steaks in 2004.

Pinelli's decision to leave his corporate job perplexed his family, but he knew he was on to something. After all, he knew how to make italian hoagies and hot roast beef. He knew how to bake Philly-style pizza, and of course, he knew how to assemble an authentic Philadelphia cheese steak. It all proved successful, and South Philly Cheese Steaks now has several locations across Denver and its surrounding areas?with more likely to come.

At each restaurant, a simple dining room greets patrons with casual tables and a custom mural of Philadelphia's skyline. In the kitchen, cooks work with many ingredients sourced right from Philly. In addition to the classic cheese steak, they assemble special varieties, such as a pizza cheese steak with provolone and marinara.

Of all the events hosted at Golden based Three Tomatoes Steakhouse / Fossil Trace Golf Club, none come with as much pomp as weddings. The steakhouse? part of the Three Tomatoes Catering Companies which has been catering since 1977? kindly provides hundreds of witnesses, some of whom reach more than 1,000 feet in height. Although they can?t sign their names or raise a toast, the Rocky Mountains have stoically observed the many vows exchanged in the verdant ceremonial gardens?and the professionally-staffed parties that followed.

Three Tomatoes Steakhouse has been dishing out delicious meals since 2003 and maintains a stable of specialists who can customize menus, fill rooms with flowers and decorations, and provide day-of event assistance for everything from a business lunch to a birthday party. The combination of picturesque scenery and attentive service has earned Three Tomatoes a steady five-star rating from Wedding Wire, as well as a spot on The Knot's list of 2010's best wedding venues.

Even under less matrimonial circumstances, the steakhouse with its gorgeous views of the Rocky Mountains, aims to make any evening feel like a special event with an inviting and casual atmosphere. On days with clear skies, guests can opt for dining a la fresco and enjoy their meal on the restaurant's outdoor patio that overlooks the front range. Chefs prepare a selection of seasonal dishes, spotlighting slices of Certified Angus beef alongside chicken, seafood, and vegetarian plates. The steaks come artfully grilled or pan-seared in a variety of cuts, from tenderloins to new york strips, and derive bold flavor from sauces such as brandy cream and roasted-garlic chipotle. The steakhouse also hosts happy hour food and drink specials from 3 ? 6 p.m. daily.
