Rocky Mountain Food Tours

We are a family of 4 with 2 teenage daughters who were visiting Colorado Springs for the first time. The tour was one of our first activities in Colorado and we really enjoyed it! We were treated to samples from 6 restaurants that varied from upscale and eclectic to much-better-than-average wings at a local restaurant/bar. Tapateria was excellent … a great concept that is well executed; the manager was very personable and made us feel very welcome. Garden of the Gods Gourmet specializes in catering but served us a nice selection of appetizers and an AMAZING chocolate mousse; our hosts were friendly and shared a wealth of information on local attractions. We enjoyed the Greek food samples so much, we returned to Jake and Telly’s the next day for lunch. One of the owners hosted our group and he was very entertaining, sharing information on Greek traditions along with a shot of ouzo (Opa!). The wings and locally brewed beer at Meadow Muffins were great … best wings I’ve ever had. The decor was interesting and our host pointed out several famous movie props that were displayed throughout the building. The Colorado City Creamery, with it’s life size cow statue out front, offered an excellent selection of unique flavors. And the cow graciously posed for pictures (grin).

The tour is updated periodically to include different restaurants. I would highly recommend a food tour (this company offers three different tours) as a great way to learn a little local history and find some new places to eat. Alcohol was included in two of the stops and available at a third, although my non-drinking husband and daughters enjoyed the tour just as much without it.

I would not recommend the tour for small children as there is a definite schedule to be kept. There is some walking .. a few blocks between restaurants at most .. and our evening tour was perfectly timed to take advantage of the cool evening air while still daylight.

Many thanks to our guide who was outgoing and knowledgeable about the local history. Enjoyed it immensely!
