Colorado is famous for its scenery, from the Garden of the Gods to the Rocky Mountains. Its beauties are as diverse as a rainbow. And its food, from great steaks and buffalo sausage to award-winning pies, makes Colorado the best friend of eager appetites. Some of Roadfood’s favorite stops are The Fort, where cutting-edge cookery is applied to vintage frontier recipes, Biker Jim’s, which is the first and last word in spectacular hot dogs, and Juniper Valley Ranch, where generations of customers have come for downhome meals of fried chicken and baked ham.
Skillet fried chicken & baked ham with hot biscuits and apple butter put Juniper Valley Ranch on the Roadfood map. Call ahead for reservations (summer only).
