Depending on how much time you have, there are 6 primary locations: Near the airport, Downtown, West GJ by the mall, Fruita , Palisade and the Redlands.

In addition there is Tepanyaki Japanese Steak House, Village Inn and Enzo's Pizzaria & Italian Cafe. All are convenient and easy to walk or drive to from the hotels.
