Ian’s Pizza (2210 Blake Street)
Ian’s Pizza is located just beyond Coors Field’s right field stands as it is less than a quarter of a mile from home plate, or a four-minute walk from home plate. They are known for their exotic toppings to their pizza, which can be bought by the slice or a full pie.
Some of their signature pizzas include a Mac-and-Cheese Pizza, a buffalo chicken pizza, a penne pizza, their “Macho Nacho” pizza (which is topped with a variety of things including chorizo and tortilla strips), a cheesy potato ranch pizza, a quesadilla pizza, and a BBQ pizza.
Ian’s is open until 2 AM on the weekends, meaning it’s a great place for a late night slice or full pizza. They have also been featured on Food Paradise on the Travel Channel for their exotic pizza concoctions.
Cherry Cricket (2220 Blake Street)
Located right next door to Ian’s Pizza is Cherry Cricket. They feature a wide variety of food, including bar food, burritos, tacos (or taco’s to Rockies fans on Twitter), and salads. However, they are best known for their burgers.
They have a TON of toppings for a few of different kinds of burgers, including a regular beef burger, bison, turkey, chicken, and a vegan-friendly burger.
For the toppings, we mean a TON of toppings. Total, they have more than three dozen toppings, including 10 different kinds of cheese, peanut butter, raspberry or grape jam, chile relleno, pork belly, corned beef, and sauerkraut.
One way that is highly recommended is to get it “Denver-style,” which is with cream cheese and a green chile.
They also have more than 30 beers on tap for those that want to enjoy an ice-cold brew.
Cherry Cricket has also been featured on The Best Thing I Ever Ate on Food Network and Man v. Food with Adam Richman on the Travel Channel.
