In the middle of Olde Town Arvada there sits a quaint, red brick building on the corner of W. 57th Avenue and Olde Wadsworth Boulevard. At first, it may seem like nothing more than a vintage school, but walking up to the building you’ll find the words “Arvada School House Kitchen and Libations” across the glass window. Built in 1882, it was a one-room childhood school for the small town. After the construction of Arvada High School, the building was repurposed into a movie theater through World War II until 2015, when the Spears family transformed it into the Schoolhouse restaurant it is today. I had the pleasure of trying out this unique restaurant with my sister and her husband; together, we entered the warm building seeking shelter from the cold.

In what I can only describe as the most literal sense of “hole in the wall” restaurant, D’Deli is perhaps the embodiment of this old American phrase. Occupying a space no more than 20-feet wide on the busy street of Washington Avenue in Golden, D’Deli has been serving up some of the best sandwiches for nearly 50 years. With a focus on locally grown ingredients and a (mostly) health focused menu, it’s easy to see why D’Deli has received multiple awards over the years, including being voted the best sandwich shop in Jefferson County for the last four years running.

What is the first thing that comes to your mind when you hear the word “chili?” Is it ground beef with seasonings and beans, fresh out of a crock pot, topped with yellow, shredded cheese that melts as soon as you sprinkle it on top, and crisp, fresh, diced purple onion, accompanied by a packet of saltines or bread roll? Or is it roasted hatch peppers, with tomato and garlic, blended and cooked to perfection mixed with tiny chunks of pork? In Colorado, one would typically have the option of red or green chili. However, this wasn’t an option when my family first dined at Santiago’s restaurant in Brighton, Colorado. Santiago’s is a very well known restaurant in the community. One of the things that makes this restaurant such a popular go-to spot, is their pork green chili that can be added to practically any dish on their menu.
