Grand Junction lags far behind the rest of the country in ethnic diversity, a factor that unfortunately is reflected in the limited food choices available in this area. The area has been inundated by chain restaurants, so finding dining choices that reflect local character and flavor takes work. In general, the food in this area is unsophisticated and consists mostly of burger-and-fry kind of joints.
Grand Junction offers a limited variety of restaurants. Most prevalent are burger places, pubs and steakhouses. There is a large number of Mexican restaurants, mostly offering similar types of fare, like tacos and burritos. There are three Japanese restaurants, a few more Chinese places, and good old fashioned fast food is in the greatest abundance.
Blue Moon Bar & GrilleEdit
The Blue Moon bar and grill is a bar, and believe that dining is an experience. There experiences ranging from art, music, and lighting. Serving lunch to dinner, they only use high quality foods.
Fairly routine, American-version Italian food, heavy on the tomato sauce. Nothing remarkable here beyond huge portions of unremarkable ravioli, lasagna, chicken parmigiana, heaping plates of unremarkable spaghetti and meatballs. As with most restaurants, quantity rather than quality is the key.
Pablo's Pizza is the best pizza in Grand Junction. They feature a wide variety of innovative pizzas. They hand toss dough, and even make homemade sauce. They also serve soups, panini sandwiches, and crisp, fresh, creative salads.
