Quick, casual, and concise make this modern Asian eatery a great lunch spot in the RiNo neighborhood. Order from the short but sweet menu of ramen bowls and noodle dishes. 

Pepper Asian Bistro

This Asian bistro is worth a stop. Try classic Chinese dishes like Szechuan chicken as well as a variety of Thai curries. For something with a bit of a kick, order the General Tso’s chicken.

Root Down DIA

Globally inspired cuisine for an international airport. Dine there morning, noon, or night; but if it's breakfast you're after—choose the fried egg BLT, made with local Tender Belly bacon and served with home fries, and pair it with the blood orange mimosa.

Elway's (DIA)

Dining at DIA? Forget compromise—upscale steakhouse fare awaits. Order from the same menu you'd find at Elway's other locations. Early bird travelers can reap the benefits of a take-out breakfast menu with dishes like beef hash, chicken-fried steak burrito, omelets and even housemade granola. 

Famous Dave's

Southern-style barbecue dishes, including Texas beef brisket, Georgia chopped pork, and, of course, ribs. Multiple locations.

Kassai Sushi

Japanese food and fresh sushi. The house fave is tempura. Stop in for the daily $1 sushi special from 4:30-10 p.m.
