We don't condone eating and driving, but it's tough to call yourself a Denverite unless you indulge in the occasional (or frequent) behind-the-wheel breakfast burrito. Big Mama's provides an excellent example for only $2. Flavorful, filling, and well-wrapped for in-car munching. 9828 W. 44th Ave., Wheat Ridge. Tucker Shaw



Current owners Geoff and Dana Diaz had some idea about the popularity of the roughly 400-square- foot wagon restaurant they took over three years ago and turned into its latest incarnation as a drive-up Mexican restaurant. But that fact really hit home on the first day of business when, without any advertising, dozens of people queued up to patronize the longtime, covered-wagon-shaped landmark, which in the past has been, among other names, Chuck Wagon Burgers and O'Brien's Wings-N-Things. "It's really awesome inside," Dana Diaz says. "It has everything to run a restaurant — a hood system, a little tiny Pepsi machine, our grill and cutting table fit perfect... and there's a rest- room in there, too!"
