The twelve best stoner spots to cure the munchies in Denver on 4/20

Categories: Best of Denver

In Denver, 4/20 is a special holiday -- and no, we don't mean Easter. It's a day to partake in a certain herb that Coloradans seem to love. With parties all over the city and a big rally at Civic Center Park pushing legalization -- oh, wait --- well, a big rally pushing something, there are few better ways to enjoy a sunny Sunday than loading up a bowl. Since doing so is almost inevitably followed by cravings for cheap, delicious food, we decided to fill your basket with a dozen places where any stoner can satiate a case of the munchies.

12) Pretty much any fast food outlet

Weed is now legal in this state and available to the 21+ masses -- but the stereotype of the typical pothead having a slim wallet still holds. That's what's so great about fast food when you have the munchies: It's not only cheap, but you can find it anywhere, in some of the most diabolical food hybrids known to man. When you're high, the closest place will probably be your best bet -- but since you're in Denver, why not indulge in some local fare? The Mile High City is clearly high on fast food, with plenty of homegrown options, including Good Times, Smashburger, Noodles & Company, Qdoba and Chipotle.

1531 Champa Street

Fast food is great in a pinch, but you can easily treat your tastebuds for only a few bucks more. If you're at Civic Center Park for the 4/20 rally, Cheba Hut's downtown location is a short walk. The menu could be mistaken for a dispensary roster, and with pot-friendly sandwiches like the AK-47, White Widow and Kali Mist, Cheba Hut will definitely make tokers feel at home. To top it all off, on 4/20 it will be offering a Nug (it's a four-inch sandwich, not weed) with chips and a drink for $4.20.

10) D.P. Dough
1228 East Colfax Avenue

D.P. Dough has several things going for it: It's cheap -- there are $5 calzones specials every day; it offers delivery; and it's open until 2 or 3 a.m. most days. The regular menu features calzones stuffed with everything from steak and potatoes to hamburger, cheddar and Mexican seasoning to buffalo chicken and blue cheese; there are also more traditional versions. And if your mouth is feeling a little dry, you can choose from a rainbow of dipping sauces. Whatever you're craving, D.P. Dough has you covered -- and you don't even have to get off the couch.

9) Masterpiece Delicatessen
1575 Central Street
1710 Sherman Street

Masterpiece Deli has truly mastered the art of sandwich-making. In fact, when you're under the influence, it's entirely possible you will be thrown into a munchie-induced anxiety attack just trying to whittle down your selections. From stoner basics like PB & J and grilled cheese to such artful choices as white-truffle egg salad, roasted vegetable and seared ahi tuna, Masterpiece will have you drooling despite that cottonmouth. The LoHi store also boasts a small patio that makes up for what it lacks in size, with a great view of downtown.

Do any of you see the dead eyes in number one sexy pizza? Them are the eyes of a killer god dame you Cody Coffey.

Masterpiece isn't open today because of Easter.

That list is crap. I've had sushi from Hapa that was so un-fresh that I literally gagged as soon as I smelled it. I wouldn't eat there if it was free. You are basically endorsing people getting food poisoning. Hip decor does not equate good food. D.P. Dough... That's like telling people to eat dog shit slathered in canned marinara. Sexy Pizza?? Garbage. Sweet action is good. Masterpiece Deli is good. Unsure about the rest, but I would say you need to dig a little deeper. Just because people smoke pot, it doesn't mean that want to satiate their urge to eat with trash. There is plenty of places to cure the munchies in Denver that are way better than 80% of the places on this list.

Really, Sexy Pizza is number 1, that place BLOWS! So many better stoner places in Denver than what you mentioned.

I agree Colin, WTF. How about giving locals love first, like Pie Hole Pizza at Ellsworth and Broadway. Most slices about 2 bucks, buck PBR and open late. You can have some right before you check out my other Baker District favorite, Sweet Action Ice Cream !

Wow chub, you make friends everywhere you go, don't you?  Such a winning personality.  You must really detest yourself.

@fishingblues @muhutdafugaFishingforyounghairlessboys:  I would hate myself if being near a shooting made me hungry, but it could be worse.  I could be you, but only if I lost both my mental and physical skills.
