Jibber Jabbers is a custom kids apparel printing company, owned and operated by Rein Designs.
We value a restaurant that entertains kids enough that we don’t have to put an iPad in front of them to get through service. Being a Boulder, Co., based company, we head to the Denver metro area with our kids often. Here are 5 places to check out with the kids in tow…
6715 W Colfax Ave, Lakewood, C0
Adults will remember a classic reference to this 40-year-old Denver staple in South Park. If they’ve been, they’ll also remember that the food is on par with a Taco Bell. Still, from a 3-footer’s perspective, Casa Bonita is a shrine. There are mariachi bands, cliff divers (yes, there’s an indoor pool with faux cliffs), Black Beard’s Cave, and a never-ending supply of free sopillias. Plus, the margs are decent enough to keep a parent sane.
2915 West 44th Ave., Denver
First, we know that anytime pizza is the main item on the menu, kids are going to be happy. Ernie’s takes it a steep further with an interactive kids’ menu meant for ordering and coloring. Score! The kids menu has a great selection of proper-sized portions with the same quality as the food the adults get too.
White Fence Farm
6263 W Jewell Ave., Lakewood, Co
While this fried chicken chain has expanded with several locations throughout the metro area, the first Colorado location remains the main draw with its white picket fences, petting zoo area, old timey sweet shop, and more. The food is darn tasty to boot, so mom and dad don’t have to suffer on behalf of their little ones.
523 East 17th Ave., Denver and 7355 Ralston Road, Arvada
While hipsters love this spot for its craft booze program, the menu is filled with homestyle American classics that few kids can resist. Plus, the restaurant concept is designed to feel like an old-fashioned service garage, so there’s plenty of cool decor to keep the kiddos entertained. Added bonus: flavored milk flights.
2615 Larimer St., Denver
While raw fish might be a stretch for many young ones, we love to push the palates of young ones. Use the fact that food comes out on a conveyor (grab what you want!) belt to get them excited. Next thing you know it, they’ll be auditioning for Master Chef Junior.
