What to Eat in Colorado Springs

Colorado Springs has its fair share of global cuisines, but it's the American and Mexican restaurants that are the biggest crowd pleasers in this mountain town. University of Colorado Colorado Springs students rave about Shuga's, a casual restaurant and bar that's known for its creative sandwiches and spicy coconut shrimp soup. King's Chef Diner is another local favorite that's been serving up its famed green chili since 1956. Order it on eggs, on cheeseburgers or have it in a bowl with all the fixings. If you're craving a beer, head to Phantom Canyon, a brewery-meets-restaurant that pairs its brews with tavern classics like bison burgers, wings and homemade pretzel bites served with beer cheese. And if you're in the mood for Mexican, locals recommend checking out Sonterra Grill. Recent patrons can't get enough of the tasty food and cocktails, plus note that the ambiance and service are both warm and inviting.
