Yes, Flavor Means Food, Too
Experiencing the flavor of Pueblo can mean so many things, but clearly it applies to the city's delicious food. Here are six must-try dishes to get a literal taste of Pueblo.
So Many Sloppers: The Green Chile Slopper is an iconic dish for Pueblo, but it's not made the exact same way by the many restaurants that have it on their menus. Try them all to pick a favorite!
Lace Up Your Brews Shoes: Do a walking tour downtown and try all the local beer by visiting Walter's, Shamrock Brewing and Brues Alehouse.
Dip 'Em and Chomp 'Em: For a quick app with kick, order a round of blistered shishito peppers (there's ranch dip to cool them off) at Brues Alehouse.
Italian Goodies on Elm Street: Visit two of Pueblo's oldest Italian establishments, which are within eyeshot of one another, Gus' Place (est. 1933) and Gagliano's Italian Market & Deli. At Gus', do the famous Dutch lunch — an assortment of cold cuts, cheese, bread, onion and peppers for DIY sandwiches, then pop in across the street for imported and homemade treats plus tons of kitchen gadgets.
Bingo Burger: A cheeseburger cheat meal never felt so good, in part because most ingredients are local, including beef patties infused with green chiles.
Perfect Pizza: The most authentically Pueblo pizza is Angelo's Musso Farms style with sausage, pepperoni and Musso Farms green chiles, but it's all good. Enjoy it on one of three outdoor patios on the Riverwalk.
