Famous Restaurants From Grand Junction's Past

Grand Junction has seen several great restaurants come and go over the years. Many of us are still sad to see the weekend buffet at Golden Corral go after they closed their doors last month. Can you think of a restaurant in the Grand Valley that everyone loved while it was open? How about WW Peppers? We miss our pepper rolls and chimichangas.

The Most Mentions So Far

Favorites like Cattlemen's in Loma, Randy's in Grand Junction, and Fiesta Guadalajara in Grand Junction have earned the most mentions so far. Places like Graff Dairy, Hot Tomato, and Pufferbelly are feeling the love too. What other restaurants deserve to be famous in western Colorado?

Local Restaurants That Belong on TV

The last time we asked which local restaurant most belonged on TV, the winner was Munchies Pizza and Deli in Fruita, Colorado. This great local business has been feeding us our favorites since 1979. Munchies is off 340 in Fruita before you get to the Monument.
