3. Billy's Inn 4403 Lowell Blvd, Denver, CO 80211 (Highland)

Inside and out, Billy's Inn gives off a welcoming, familial vibe that's inevitable for a restaurant that's been open for close to a century. Billy's speciality is Mexican food, and though its servings of homemade chili and nachos are time-tested classics, the pub isn't scared to venture beyond its south-of-the-border classics. Case in point: the burger menu, where the Skippy burger, topped with peanut butter, mayonnaise, pepperjack cheese, and sugar-cured bacon, is a stand-out.
