Sancho Tacos & Tequilas
The glowing reviews say it all—Sancho Tacos is a fantastic family dining option in Breckenridge. If tacos and margaritas are your bag, look no further. If some members of the family are not craving Mexican food, not to worry, kids are able to order from Empire Burger next door. Sancho’s is known for its great vibes, friendly staff and mouth-watering tacos.
“Our family loves Sancho’s…their queso is the best! My favorite taco is the Chicken Tinga.”
I’ll let this VisitBreck review speak for itself… check this place out! Located right next to City Market in Breckenridge. Soupz On is ideal for grabbing a quick, delicious lunch at a great price.
“The fact that you can eat here every day of the week and get a completely different soup, sandwich, or salad AND everything be delicious, speaks volumes to their well-crafted rotating menu. Taste a soup or two when you walk in the door before settling on the one you want; They are all so good! This is certainly a local’s favorite and is often overlooked by visitors, but it shouldn’t be! Vegetarian options every day for both soup and sandwiches is also a huge plus. The taco salad is incredible!”
Giampetro Pasta & Pizzeria
This cozy pizzeria is everything the whole family is looking for. Their genuine Italian creations have been filling the bellies of visiting families for decades. You can’t go wrong on any of their pizzas or main dish offerings. A big local tip is to get there early or be prepared to wait a little, Giampetro is a busy place year-round!
“Giampietro is a family fav! They have homemade pizza, calzones and other Italian dishes. Everything there is so good. Don’t order without getting Arancini, fried risotto & mozzarella.”
A longstanding VisitBreck favorite, Kenosha is a great place to refuel after a long day on the slopes or hiking trails. Their authentic, smoked BBQ options are easily paired with a beverage from their craft beer menu. Kid’s options run in much of the same style: ribs, BBQ pork sandwiches and burgers. The whole family will be smiling after this one!
“Kenosha has a diverse menu, reasonable prices, seating capacity for large groups, and a great atmosphere. If you want to watch the game, head upstairs where there’s no such thing as a “bad view” of a TV. Or if the weather is nice, Kenosha has plenty of outdoor seating (in the summer) with great views of the resort, horseshoe pits, and a play area for children.”
