Brickhouse 40

As you wander through downtown Granby, you can’t miss the red-brick walls and silverware-studded sign of Brickhouse 40. A newer restaurant that quickly became a local staple, this is the place to go for elevated American and Italian fare. Order up a bowl of their Colorado elk chili for a spicy Western staple covered with sharp cheddar, scallions and a dollop of tangy sour cream. For dinner, dig into the chicken picatta, pan-seared and drenched in a creamy lemon-caper sauce with a hearty side of spinach and fluffy mashed potatoes.

Lina's Pizza

Sometimes after a day exploring the Rockies by foot, ski or bike, the only thing that satisfies is a massive slice of pizza. And in Granby, Lina’s Pizza is the place to go. Family-owned and operated, this shop brings the flavors of the East Coast to the mountains. Take a bite out of The Boulder, sprinkled with spinach, roasted red peppers and savory mushrooms. And if you want to heat things up a bit, opt for the Diavola, with pepperoni, Calabrian chilis, crushed red pepper and habanero.

Grand Azteca Mexican Restaurant

For authentic Mexican flavors, Grand Azteca Mexican Restaurant is one of the best spots in Grand County. Slide into a cozy booth and snack on some tortilla chips with house-made salsa as you peruse the menu. From zesty margaritas with fresh-squeezed lime juice to traditional pozole with tender pork and hominy, you’ll want to try a little bit of everything when you stop in. For dinner, you can’t go wrong with a combination plate, piled high with a crispy relleno, a saucy tamale and a cheesy enchilada.

Debbie's Drive In

One double-meat burger, some crispy fries and a massive vanilla milkshake, please. When you step into Debbie’s Drive-in you feel like you’re stepping back in time to a 1950s carhop. But we recommend you stop inside to see everything this Granby restaurant has to offer. For some salty-sweet action, get a plate of honey-mustard crispy chicken and cheese with lettuce and tomato. Or get a little messy as you chomp into a quarter-pound chili dog with cheese and onions.

Maverick’s Grille

If you’re in the mood for some real Western fare, you’re going to want to mosey over to Maverick’s Grille. Here, the stars of the show are the Colorado delicacies that they do right — like the spicy green chili — best served over a big pile of cheese fries with pico de gallo and sour cream. But there are plenty of other items to sample while you’re sitting at the restaurant’s cozy bar, which is lovingly adorned with both sports memorabilia and an elk mount. In fact, we don’t recommend you leave before trying the extra-crispy chicken-fried steak, smothered in white gravy and beautifully paired with a Colorado draft beer.

Pearl Dragon Restaurant

Frequently touted as the best Chinese food in Colorado by visitors and locals, Pearl Dragon Restaurant is a hidden gem on Fourth Street in Granby. After a day exploring local snowshoe trails or kayaking on Lake Granby, sometimes you just want to call in a big takeout order, bring it home and dig in. Order up some crunchy veggie eggrolls and saucy BBQ-pork spare ribs to start. And of course, you’ll need a huge plate of sweet-and-sour chicken — best served with some iced jasmine boba tea. Keep an eye on their social pages to see what’s on the takeout menu this week.

The Grille at Grand Elk

For a stunning meal with a view, you’re going to want to head to The Grille at Grand Elk Golf Club. Grab a seat by the window and gaze out at the green’s Rocky Mountain backdrop. After a sunny day teeing off at high elevation (where you’ll notice your golf balls go just a little bit further with the thinner air), settle in with a Grand Negroni. Mixed up with Breckenridge Gin, Campari, sweet vermouth and some citrusy orange zest, it’s best sipped alongside one of their entrees. Choose from among  their decadent dinner options is the filet mignon wrapped in thick-cut bacon, drizzled with a demi-glace and served with a healthy side of mashers and grilled asparagus.
