I have been working at Aspen Forest for near 15 years now and with each passing year there are new places to eat for lunch! There must be at least 60 restaurants nearby, and I am NOT exaggerating. I really can't keep up with them all. I also live pretty close by so most weekends if we want to eat out we will drive to this area. Some of my favorite places to go are:
Creamistry (for dessert!)
Broken Egg Cafe
But there are a lot of places that I haven't tried yet!
HopDoddy Burger Bar
Tumble22 Chicken Joint
Tikka Shack Indian Grub
Gauchos Do Sol
It really is nice to have all of these options so close! Not only for when lunch time rolls around but also for a hot date with my hubby on the weekend :) It is also super nice to take the kids to Creamistry and to listen to the free live music at The Vintage. Here is a link to all of the free events they do!
I hope you are able to come and enjoy everything this area has to offer!
