Each year, popular review website Yelp releases their list of the 'top 100 places to eat' in the United States, based on a variety of criteria that includes the opinion of their vast online community. Released in mid-February, four Colorado restaurants made the cut.
Ranking the highest on the list was Pho Haus, a Denver Vietnamese restaurant. This spot snuck into the top quarter of the list with a ranking of 25th. Reviewers of this restaurant rave about menu items such as the traditional pho, rice bowls, and banh mi sliders.
Found just outside of Denver, Littleton's Latke Love earned the 27th-place ranking on Yelp's list, ranking second among the four Colorado's restaurants that were included. As one might expect, this spot specializes in latkes, a type of pancake typically made with grated potato. One popular menu item here is the 'Oy Vey Calienté', which comes with four potato latkes, a spicy vegetarian or pork green chile topping, cheddar cheese, and a fried egg.
The third Colorado restaurant to claim a ranking on America's top 100 places to eat was Denver's Esters Neighborhood Cafe, ranking 43rd. Known for speciality pizzas and a friendly atmosphere, the unique, high-quality topping combinations here keep patrons coming back.
A third Denver spot, and fourth Colorado spot, also made the cut – Lucky Noodles, ranking 51st. Found on East Colfax, this Thai restaurant offers up addictive versions of classics like Pad Thai, fried rice, and a variety of curries. One unique item found here is the 'pork roti' – roti filled with pork belly.
In 2020, two Colorado restaurants made the list. Ranking the highest last year was Yahya's Mediterranean Grill and Pastries in Denver, ranking 32nd. Denver's Taqueria La Familia was also included, ranking 39th.
