Denver to Grand Junction

Where is a good place near I 70 to stop for an early dinner? We will be driving to Grand Junction. We leave the Denver airport about 1:30 pm but our stomachs will still be on eastern time. Thanks

Lots of places. What kind of food , what price point and about what time do you want to eat?

Probably around 4 MT. time- $10-20 per person and American type food- grilled chicken or fish and a salad would be fine.

That puts you in Avon, Edwards, Eagle area, the difficult part is most places don't open for dinner until later. In Edwards the Gore Range Brewery is open all day and has good, reasonable food and a nice patio area. http://www.gorerangebrewery.com/home.htm

And Glenwood Springs wouldn't be much further along the route.

In Glenwood, Rivers has been recommended here and offers an early bird menu:

There's the Glenwood Canyon Brewpub:

We very much enjoyed a recent dinner in the courtyard at The Hotel Colorado but I'm not sure what time they open. I bet they'd be open by the time you get to Glenwood.
