Half Fast Subs

Looking for a great sub shop? Half Fast has a fun ambiance that radiates the traditional college feel of a sandwich shop. They have great daily specials and tons of yummy sandwiches and salads to choose from.

The Sink

Fun fact: Guy Fieri, President Obama and so many more famous people have visited The Sink! Now it’s your turn! For almost 100 years, The Sink has been known for its delicious pizza and burgers. The vibrant drawings covering every surface, and the eye-popping art makes this restaurant an original and iconic part of The Hill.

Innisfree Poetry Bookstore & Cafe

Innisfree is a modern, hip, relaxed and centrally located coffee shop on The Hill. It is the perfect spot to get homework done, meet for group projects and try local coffee drinks.


When I first came to Colorado from the Midwest I thought, “ranch and pizza? Gross.” It turns out, it is one of the best combinations of all time! When people think of Cosmos, they think traditional, delicious pizza. Not to mention, their slices are enormous and their spicy ranch is one-of-a-kind.

Illegal Pete’s

The food is so darn really should be illegal! This Mexican restaurant has fun, unique events such as live fantasy football drafts, World Cup watching parties and more! It is an energetic environment where anyone can hang out.
