Hi fellow Chowhounders.
I find myself traveling to Denver on Friday or more accurately, I'll be staying north east of the city, near the airport and Dick's Sporting Goods Park.
It appears the nearest major city is Aurora, and Denver downtown is a bit of a drive.
I live in Seattle and so we get lots of great Thai, Chinese, Vietnamese, Japanese and so forth here... but that also means I love those foods LOL.
Any suggestions for restaurants not to be missed in the Aurora, airport, Dick's Sporting Goods Park area?
I am particularly interested in people making family recipes and notable local specialties.
Seattle is a bit of a barbeque wasteland, so if there's any great BBQ, I'm always up for that. I'm also always up for a really solid hearty quality breakfast... and good doughnuts.
Thanks in advance for any suggestions. I did some searches on the Chow boards and it was a real mess, 99% of the suggestions were downtown, and while that might work for one evening, it's more likely that we'll have weird little patches of two to four hours open at various points, and so it's hard to plan that drive.
