The Pig'n Whistle looks to be a good place for Bar-B-Q. Just the a look at the multi-colored marquee outside is worth the trip.

These locations are off of Colfax Avenue, billed as being the longest street in America, at something like 25+ miles long. Many thanks to Jason Carlton for info and photos.

Another roadside eatery in Denver, the Bastien's Restaurant declares itself to have the best steak in town. The signage and googie restaurant aren't bad either. Bastien's has been listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

According to the 5280mod website, the Bastien's building was built in 1959 directly where the Moon Drive-in used to stand.

Take a peek at the neon marquee for Pete's Kitchen, located in Denver, Colorado. It's an almost streamlined art deco coffee shop with the neon sign still operational.

This rather animated sign is for Pete's Kitchen in Denver. Fancy this happy chef serving you up a burger. Many people do. This seemed to always be busy.
