So we headed off at midnight on Saturday night and arrived in Breckenridge just after noon on Sunday! On the trip there we stopped and had a wonderful breakfast at… Wait for it… McDonalds. Hey sometimes a sausage, egg, and cheese McGriddle is the fuel you need to crank out the final hours on the road. So yeah, we get there at noon or a little after and we are ready to chow down.
We stop to eat at this joint called Empire Burger! Of course I forgot to take pictures. I know. Spank me. Well, this place was pretty tasty. Of course, we had to wait for our whole party to get there before we could be seated so we had to stand in a tiny entry way by the door until the last member of the party got there. They should have seated us. No doubt.
Still, the food was good. They had some absolutely incredible onion rings and some coma inducing fries! One of the best parts was the sauces you can get with the fries and onion rings!! They were great. Leave it to me to forget what sauces we tried, but I’m sure all of
them are fantastic. The burger was pretty good too. If you read my last post you know how much I love a good burger!
Then a little bit after eating I just so happened to fall asleep until 8 or so at night. By the time 10 rolled around, I was ready to eat again. So, off we went to find another place to stuff our face. We stopped at a little taco place called Lucha Cantina! Yeah, it was great! They only had their late night menu when we got there, but that was good enough for me! I got a chicken burrito and crammed it full of everything that I wanted!! They cook it up, roll it up, and then grill the burrito.
So amazing!! Way better than places like Qdoba or Chipotle (which I love, don’t get me wrong)! The ingredients were just so fresh and delicious! No better way to end the night than eating so much burrito you start to speak Spanish!! Yeah, that was awesome!
After stuffing myself as always, it was time to return to the hotel and sleep away the night. The next day was the first day to hit the slopes!
Check back next week for part 2!!
Food. Drink. Whatever.
