Should you have the opportunity to visit the amazing Rocky Mountains in Colorado, there is one particular area you do not want to miss: Estes Park, Colorado. Dining in the Estes Park area will bring to you two great eateries that offer more choices than can be imagined. Mama Rose’s and Poppy’s Pizza and Grill offer some of the finest dining, delicious tastes, and reasonable priced items you will find.

Mama Rose’s offers an array of choices sure to please even the most discerning diner. Specializing in traditional Italian cuisine, Mama Rose’s menu includes several spaghetti entrees, various fettuccine choices, a fantastic parmesan selection, and no Italian menu would be complete without the inclusion of lasagna! Whether it be a truly traditional entrée, a unique appetizer, or a taste of spirits, Mama Rose’s has an excellent selection. Four course meals, or just a light dinner – you can find a selection to suit the Italian palate.

Mama Rose’s can also accommodate those with gluten issues or allergies, vegetarians, and children with seperate menu items. If it’s Italian cuisine you seek, while you explore some of the most beautiful mountains Colorado can offer, Mama Rose’s is a must visit.

For diners who enjoy the finer spirits, their wine list is second to none. Fine Pinots, Chardonnays, and Merlots are available by the glass or bottle. If Scotch is more to your taste, you won’t leave Mama Rose’s without having tasted the best – Balvenie, Glenfidditch, and Oban are just a few of the finest names in Scotch available to patrons at Mama Rose’s.

Poppy’s Pizza & Grill does an excellent job of addressing the pizza lover in everyone. Specialty pizzas at Poppy’s can start with various sauces – traditional red, basil pesto, even a confetti sauce and finish with some of the most wonderful toppings. Traditional choices at Poppy’s include anchovies, black olives, onions, and banana peppers – but you don’t need to miss some of the more unique – pineapple, mandarin oranges, bleu cheese, and even walnuts – finish out a variety that can be uniquely combined for each and every diner. They even have a Rocky Mountain Pizza!

Even though Colorado is not traditionally thought of as a Mexican hub, Poppy’s Pizza and Grill has Mexican, enchilada, and green chili pizzas. Dining in Estes Park at Poppy’s has managed to put a global spin on even Pizza – not only can they accommodate a Mexican flair, they have Thai and hummus available. 

Poppy's starter salads and an array of appetizers begin the meal with choices such as bruschetta and green Chile fries, to raspberry walnut and mandarin salads. Pizza, however isn’t the end to all the wonderful choices found at Poppy’s Pizza and Grill; sandwiches and burgers, wraps, salads, and soups are a delightful addition should you decide pizza isn’t the flavor for today. If you thought there was variety in the pizzas, a quick scan of the sandwiches, burgers and wraps brings about a new appreciation for variety, Poppy’s Pizza & Grill, style!

So as you can see, for those traveling to Estes Park, Colorado there is a wide variety of eateries and restaurants to choose from. Even the pickiest eater is sure to find a place that he or she will enjoy!
