Arapahoe County

Bennett Bars and Restaurants

There is so much to love about this growing little quaint community on the western edge of the eastern plains of Colorado. There is an energy, an excitement that exudes this area but at the same time there is a relaxed calmness that will put you at ease. There are plenty of open spaces and trails to enjoy and the beauty of the area is breathtaking. One of the biggest events that occurs here is called Bennett Days which is basically a bringing together of the community for some amazing food, fun and fellowship. The most beautiful thing about the area is the feel of community and the sense of Americana. Saying that the community is inviting is an understatement. But if we had to point to the real star of the show in Bennett it would have to be the phenomenal vistas that are all around you. Of course, all of this amazing nature and sightseeing can take a lot out of you and you are eventually going to need to replenish your body with some flavorful food and drink. The Bennett area has some very nice places for you to sample some great cuisine or to have have a well crafted drink or maybe both at the same time. We have reviewed some area hot spots for you to visit when riding in a Mercedes-Benz with us.

If you have been here before, you are going to be blown away by the newly remodeled venue. The open seating area provides such a cool environment and if you want to catch up on one of your favorite events, you will be pleased with the array of high definition flat screens to gaze upon. It may seem odd to mention a salad in a review, but the ones they serve up here is so fresh and full of everything you want, we just have to. In terms of the menu, it is very difficult to isolate one item but if we were forced to we would have to suggest the Kielbasa.

Incredible is the first and only word that comes to mind when thinking about the pizza that comes out of the kitchen at this establishment. But even if you are not in the mood for pizza, you will have no worries at all since they offer a very nice variety. For instance, the steak is a dish that never disappoints and it is always cooked according to the patron's specifications. The waitstaff and really all of the staff are so welcoming and you will very quickly feel like one of the family as you being to relax. You don't want to miss what cooking and whats on tap here.
