Your Wheat Ridge Restaurant Rundown

When it comes to places to drink and eat, you’d be surprised just how many exciting and not-so-exciting places we have right here in Wheat Ridge. In fact we have more than 80 restaurants and bars inside city limits. 

Let’s start with Clancy’s Irish Pub on 38th Avenue. Excellent food, expansive beverage selections and low prices. For sure the best burgers in town. I’m trying to get them to add liver and onions to their menu but I need help convincing them. For your best street tacos in town, hands down Mestizo’s on 38th Avenue and Pierce Street. For the best coffee in town with amazing waffles, visit Stylus and Crate on 38th Avenue and Quay Street. Sit and enjoy your coffee and pick out your favorite record from their collection and play it on the turntable. 

If you’re in the mood for BBQ, head over to newly opened Rolling Smoke on 38th and High Court. Authentic with excellent service. Now, if you’re in the mood for something international, the newly-reopened Little Brazil on 38th Avenue and Upham Street is open and mixing great cocktails with delicious meals Ayrton Senna would be proud of. 

Now if you’re meeting some friends and are looking for that perfect spot with a lasting impression that will bring everyone back, try Wolf and Wildflower wine bar. It’s popular, friendly and also for sale for a cool $95,000 if you’re looking to run your very own wine bar. It’s popular and friendly with delicious wines — you won’t be disappointed. The Wheat Ridge Bowling Alley, otherwise known as the Country Club, is still going strong and a great place to have fun along with a beverage. Speaking of which, Colorado Plus is still under a serious renovation and is hoping to be back in action this summer. 

Before I forget, you have to visit Pietra’s Pizzeria & Italian Restaurant on 44th Avenue and Field Street. Best minestrone in town, great pizza and, of course, you can eat spaghetti every Tuesday for only $3.50. The owner Joe Demotte is legendary in this town. Across Pietra’s you’ll find Joe’s Cafe. Great breakfast and good coffee. Just down 44th, you’ll also find New Image Brewery, a great meeting place for the whole family and one of the best patios in town. 

West 29th restaurant is owned by our very own Mayor Bud Starker. The food is fantastic and is prepared with local ingredients. I wish they would open for lunch but these guys are strictly dinner. Right down the street we are waiting for GasBar to open up this summer. Looking forward to another place for the community to gather and enjoy delicious cocktails. 

On the west side of town in the revamped Gold’s Market we have two wonderful additions: Esters, located on the west side of the Gold’s Market building on Kipling Street and 26th Avenue. Esters has delicious pizza and the best martini in town. Recently opened on the west side of the same building is Illegal Pete’s. Great patio overlooking Crown Hill Lake. Tasty food with great prices. 

Stay tuned next month for our Edgewater restaurant rundown.
