After finishing up an exhilarating cliffside zipline or epic whitewater rafting trip in Idaho Springs, you would have surely worked up an appetite. Conveniently, you will finish these tours about five minutes outside of downtown Idaho Springs, an awesome small town in the front range of the Rocky Mountains. This lively little town expands 2.2 square miles and offers tons of outdoor activities including whitewater rafting, ziplining and the Georgetown Loop Historic Train Ride. Here are our five favorite eats in Idaho Springs for a post zipline meal.
Our hands down favorite place to grab a bite to eat in Idaho Springs is Smokin Yard’s BBQ, offering amazing beef brisket, pulled pork and tons of other delicious southern assortments you will not want to miss out on this humble BBQ. A very close rival to the Smokin Yard’s magical pulled pork is Tommyknocker Brewery Pub offering stellar pub favorites such as 1/2 lb Angus burgers and fish ‘n chips (you won’t want to skip out on one of their signature micro brews either). When the whole family is dying for a bite to eat, look no further than Beau Jo’s to enjoy a “Yukon” deep dish mountain pie. When looking for superb breakfast served all day long Main Street Restaurant is there for you, serving breakfast all day with homemade bread and huge portions. For one of those on the go type of meals, Two Brothers Deli offer fresh generous sandwiches, soups, and signature smoothies made with fresh fruit.
Regardless of which restaurant you decide to stop and eat at you won’t be disappointed with any of the five options discussed.
