2. Ted’s Montana Grill
1401 Larimer, Denver
Founded by media mogul and philanthropist Ted Turner, Ted’s Montana Grill is well known for its use of bison meat (the bison chili is delicious), but the regional chain also offers steaks, including rib eyes and prime rib.
With a central location on Larimer Square in a historic Denver Victorian building, Ted’s offers everything from tasty burgers and fries to grilled chicken sandwiches and complimentary cucumber pickles. It is known for its eco-friendly approach to dining, with its cups, napkins and straws being entirely compostable.
