Greasy, fried food pairs well with a solid Sunday spent yelling at the television during football season. But cheering and chowing down aren't confined to mediocre bar food and unhealthy fare. Instead, an assortment of top Denver restaurants allow you indulgently dine and tune in simultaneously. Sounds like Broncos fans are winning all around.Read More

Denver Deep Dish
The heat of Game Day action goes great with a slice of delicious Chicago-style thick crust at Denver Deep Dish. With two locations, the first originally in the back of Bar Car on Colorado Boulevard, and the second in the hot LoHi neighborhood – pizza is obviously the main attraction, but cheesy bread, meatball sliders and other social bites and dishes keep your head in the game.
Don't miss the action at one of LoHi's latest watering holes, The Occidental, meaning "of the West." The sister bar and next door neighbor to acclaimed speakeasy Williams & Graham offers craft cocktails in an easygoing environment. Scrumptious bites from State Fare food truck, offering mortadella corn dogs and more, complement the beverages and general vibe.
Ophelia's Electric Soapbox
From brothel to Broncos, Ophelia's Electric Soapbox steals the show from the general atmosphere to the food to the entertainment – including, but surely not limited to, football on the 25-foot projection screen.
The namesake of famed Bronco, John Elway, wouldn't be complete without a hearty meal and a space to tune into touchdowns.

Signature menu items like Stranahan's barrel-smoked chicken wings, IPA mac-and-cheese, and the 'shroom-luva's burger serve as celebratory staples to enjoy with a Sunday Game Day.
Recess Beer Garden
With a playful atmosphere, beer-centric beverage menu and dishes that complement the brews, this new LoHi eatery is just the ticket to enjoying Broncos games.
The revamped Terminal Bar, once the ticketing office inside the Great Hall of Denver Union Station, has three small screens, but goes above and beyond when it comes to the craft beer, spirits and approachable food selection to go alongside the game.
Whiskey Tango Foxtrot
Whiskey Tango Foxtrot has the NFL Sunday Ticket so patrons can get their fair share of football while enjoying the wide-ranging whiskey selection, 30 featured taps, Foxtrot fried chicken, pork wings, or ice cream sammies.
