Sam's No. 3
Family-owned and maintained for three generations, this diner and bar is a Denver institution. Though the spot is hailed for its Colorado green chili and breakfast menu, the eight-page menu is honestly so all-encompassing that it might even include culinary gems yet to be spotlighted. In addition to a usual wait, 15 kinds of burgers and 21 breakfast burritos to choose from will make your visit a long one, so prepare accordingly.
This down-to-earth joint with three locations (Glendale, Aurora, and downtown) has what you need to cure your hangover. The extensive food menu (16 pages!) has seemingly everything from American diner classics to plates overflowing with Greek and Mexican cuisine. There's even an entire page dedicated to breakfast burritos, which are as big as your head and covered in Sam’s famous green chile and a ton of cheese, as is Denver tradition. Pro tip: Do not make big plans after Sam's.
