Rocky Mountain Food Tours

What’s the best thing to do in Colorado Springs? We might be biased, but a food tour should be top on your list! 

Food Tour in Downtown Colorado Springs

Food tourism has been around for quite some time. Everyone knows if you want a beignet, you go to New Orleans. Want some great barbecue? Try Kansas City. Or, how about fresh seafood? Go no further than Seattle. “Will travel for food” has been the slogan of many travelers over the years and continues to be a driving force for many grub-seeking gourmands.

But, what kind of food does Colorado have to offer, and how can you experience it on a food tour?

 

Here’s the food and drink you can expect to try on a food tour

Pueblo Green Chili stuffed burger patty with bacon, aged cheddar, and award-winning sauce from Bingo Burger

Turns out that Colorado has a lot to offer when it comes to unique food! In addition to Colorado’s eight famous foods, we are home to many diverse and ethnic restaurants, a whole bunch of amazing craft breweries and distilleries, tons of cozy coffee shops, and dozens of local chefs who are using fresh ingredients to create innovative menus.

 

Try Flavor-Packed Menu Items from Award-Winning Chefs

Chef Brother Luck on a Food Tour in Colorado Springs

Chef Brother Luck, who competed on the 2018 and 2019 seasons of Bravo’s Top Chef, calls downtown Colorado Springs home. His four-course tasting menu at Four by Brother Luck rotates seasonally and features items such as Ute Tribe Blue Cornbread using our famous Pueblo Green Chiles and Superior Farms Lamb Chops, also a Colorado specialty.

Mark Henry, a Food Network Chopped Champion, brought an Asian umami punch to downtown Colorado Springs with his 90’s vibe restaurant, Rooster’s House of Ramen. Here you can order Chashu pork belly ramen bowl with nori and a sous vide egg and dry sake from Japan.

 

Indulge in Craft Beer, Coffee and Chocolate

Craft Beer Flight from Colorado Brewery

Colorado Springs restaurants love to promote and support one another, and that’s why you’ll find local craft beer on almost every menu. Bingo Burger and The Bench have a rotating tap featuring Colorado Springs brews and favorite watering hole, Jack Quinn’s Irish Pub, has their own house Irish Stout brewed by Breckenridge Brewery.

 

Bar of Chocolate in Colorado Springs

And who doesn’t need a little bit more sweet in their life? Cacao Chemistry produces luscious chocolates and has won best truffle in Colorado Springs several years in a row. There are a lot of fantastic coffee shops as well including Story Coffee Co., which is built in a tiny house located right in the middle of Acacia Park.

 

Sip on Signature Cocktails from the City’s Best Bartenders

Cranberry Palomas at Odyssey Gastropub

You can find some killer cocktails in Downtown Colorado Springs created by mixologists who are serious about their craft. Brooklyn’s on Boulder, a speakeasy parading as a men’s haberdashery, serves up a classic Aviation using their own gin, and Odyssey Gastropub makes a a great Cranberry Tequila Paloma. We’re also partial to the fresh Mint Julep’s at The Archives, a hidden underground bar.

 

Now that we’ve whet your appetite, here’s what a food tour is…

You can experience all of the above and MUCH MORE on a food tour in downtown Colorado Springs!

Our food tours offer both visitors and local and an innovative way to explore downtown Colorado Springs on foot. You’ll sip and savor generous samples at four to five restaurants in only a few hours, giving you an array of local flavors.

Food tours are also a way to promote small business owners and entrepreneurs in our community as well as showcase our historic districts. Our expert tour leaders love telling stories, pointing out art pieces, and revealing out city’s hidden treasures.
