The Westword 2014 Food and Drink Bucket List: #25-16

Categories: Best of Denver

18) Get a cinnamon roll at Johnson's Corner.
This classic truck stop on I-25 did a major renovation just after it turned fifty, which removed a lot of the old roadhouse charm -- but Johnson's Corner wisely made no changes to the old cinnamon roll formula. They remain incredible mounds of
pastry, frosting and sweetness, as impressive in their own way as the mountains you can see across the asphalt to the west.

17) Enjoy a glass of wine and the view from the Flagstaff House patio.
The Flagstaff House got its start in the '30s, when it opened as a restaurant in a former cabin high on Flagstaff Mountain. When Don Monette purchased the place in 1971, he refined it into a world-class, high-end dinner destination; his sons have continued the evolution, adding a world-class wine list. But one thing remains unchanged: the million-dollar view from the patio, just the spot to enjoy a glass of that wine.

16) Get a burger at Bud's Bar
Want a burger? Good. Because that's all Bud's Bar serves -- burgers and cheeseburgers, accompanied by chips. But it's served in an unbeatable atmosphere: Bud's opened as a roadhouse in Sedalia back in 1946, and those years of tradition flavor every meal here.

Come back tomorrow for the next ten in our 2014 Food and Drink Bucket List.

OK - here are a few:

- Enjoy a yard of ale at the Golden Bee at The Broadmoor.

- Indulge in the frico caldo at Frasca in Boulder - best dish I've ever had in CO.

- Save up lots of $$$ and experience the "fresh truffle festival" at Barolo - you'll 

never consume "truffle oil" again.

- Shop your heart out at The Truffle cheese shop and don't look at the credit card receipt.
