Denver Soul Food Question (with a focus on hush puppies)

incognitoaficionado | Jun 4, 2008 01:47 PM

Hi Denverians,

I'm a recent transplant to the Denver area from places far east (and somewhat south) and miss some of the hearty soul food that I used to find with ease. Most specifically, I'm looking for a place that cooks up honest to god hush puppies. Not yuppified hush puppy tapas with jalapeno dipping sauce, not sugared hugh puppies with three on a plate - I want real hush puppies. All the better if I can also get a turkey chop, some turnip greens, and a sweet tea - but I don't want to ask too much. Does anyone have any recommendations? I've heard that Zona's might be a place to check out (not sure where this is exactly) - but have been disappointed thus far with many of the "soul-ier" looking places on Colfax towards downtown (Pineapple Grill, Bourbon Chicken, etc).

You guys have given some great Denver recommendations in the past - please help me find my hush puppies!
