It’s a fact: You don’t have to wipe out your entire paycheck to get a great meal in Denver. Sure, there are pricey fine-dining establishments well worth the splurge for special occasions. But you should be able to eat out any time you want to–and you can. Each of these 10 restaurants offers great food at an affordable price. As a group, they also cover all times of day and a variety of cuisines. Chop Shop Casual Urban Eatery is the poster restaurant for the fast-casual concept. It’s affordable, comfortable, family-friendly and quick, but also chef-driven and you can get wine, beer and a Moscow Mule, too. At Tamales by La Casita, extraordinary value comes in the form of house-made tamales and other flavorful Mexican dishes priced in the $2-$6 range. Acme Burger & Brat Corporation offers a compact, appealing menu with value pricing in the lively setting of Union Station, while The Market at Larimer Square is a cornucopia of edible possibilities where patrons can mix, match and create the meal they want at the price they want. And guests at Denver Bicycle Café can enjoy locally made pastries and coffee while their bike is expertly tuned up. No bike? Go just to enjoy a Colorado craft brew and the laid-back atmosphere when the bar opens at 5 p.m. This list is just more proof that Denver's food scene rocks.
