After finishing the South Table Mountain hike I needed a bite to eat. I traveled into downtown Golden and decided to stop at the Table Mountain Inn. The Table Mountain Inn has a definitive southwestern look and feel to it so I thought it would be perfect for a post hike meal.
I felt a bit like a tailgater celebrating a big win in front of the opposing team. The Inn has a great view of the mountain I just conquered!

Now to the food! I started out with an order of chips and salsa. This was a thicker version of chips and salsa with a heavy tomato base. The salsa scooped onto the chips in big bits which gave you a lot of flavor with each bite. It was flavorful but I could have gone with a bit more spice. Overall very good though.
Next was the main dish. If I would have known how big the burrito was going to be I might have passed on the chips. This monster came out the size of a football! I ordered the chicken burrito which came with: Charred Corn Salsa, Cilantro Lime Rice, House Beans, Cheddar Jack Cheese, Green Chili, and Lime Crema
You know how some burrito’s are loosely packed and only look big on the plate? That was not the case with this one. There was so much filling in the here that I couldn’t believe they could wrap it. Each bite felt like a pound! It tasted really good with a mix of flavors from all of the ingredients. The chicken came through with a nice sweet/salty flavor that was the standout.
I really enjoyed the meal even if I had to take most of it home. The Table Mountain Inn is also a hotel so if you are looking for a place to stay in Golden it might be a place to check out. The food was delicious and I can vouch for that.
Located on Washington Street in downtown Golden, the Table Mountain Inn is right in the heart of the city and close to everything. If you are around the area, give them a shot.
