My Husband and I had only driven through Pueblo, CO to get to Texas and maybe for a pee stop.. But never had I actually ventured into this city. I am so regretting I hadn’t yet. This little town is AMAZING.
My Husband, Hudson and I decided to stay the night over in Pueblo because I had an eco-friendly Earth Day segment on KOAA News 5 EARLY in the morning the next day! Our drive down was LONG but we made it – And JUST in time to have some amazing Bingo Burger! This place is SO good. It’s like Five Guys, but better.. YES, I said it! They had SO many amazing and healthy options!
We were able to enjoy some of their signature burgers WITH the option of making it a lettuce bun to keep it paleo and we had some of their DELICIOUS sweet potato fries with their unique lemon-rosemary aioli and thai chili ketchup dipping sauces! SO good and SO much food! (We JUST finished their sweet potato fries we had brought home!) The manager Steena was so very sweet and welcoming. We’ll definitely be by again next time we’re down that way!
After our much needed and delicious dinner we headed to our hotel. (Best Western Plus – Was so incredibly displeased with their service unfortunately. We will not be staying with them again in the future) Despite the frustrations with the hotel, our next day was SO much fun. I was super nervous about being on live TV for the first time but the staff at the station was SO friendly, understanding and helpful!
I breezed through each eco-friendly item thanks to their support and then I felt sad after it was all over – I wanted to keep going! You can watch my segments here!
Although I wanted to keep going, I had a full day of fun planned with my guys – I LOVE Riverwalks (If you’ve seen my San Antonio post you’ll know I can never go back now that I’ve experienced them, I have to see them ALL!) so I wanted to visit the Arkansas River Pueblo Riverwalk. It was breathtaking! There were historic buildings surrounding an amazingly, beautifully planned walkway with mini waterfalls, artistic touches and sculptures everywhere. I felt as if I was in an art district – Something that was so unexpected but I cherished and loved every moment of it!
We built up quite an appetite walking around in the warm weather so we headed to a highly recommended local restaurant called DC’s On B Street. I had seen their reviews and food photos online and was INSTANTLY intrigued. We walked in and were pleasantly greeted by gorgeous vintage feels and the sweetest woman, Sara. We were also greeted by the fun and talented owner DC!
Their restaurant was beautiful but their food was EVEN better. They had GORGEOUS presentation with AMAZING flavor. DC is a MASTER cook and Sara has the best recommendations! Brent decided to get some fresh Halibut (From Alaska!) and I got an amazing strawberry and walnut salad. The Halibut was cooked to buttery perfection and the salad was DIVINE.
After dinner, Sara told us their pies are homemade by her talented sister! We could NOT say No!! So we got a pecan pie with a side of ice cream.. Just couldn’t resist and I am glad we didn’t it was PERFECT. And we know our Pecan Pies – Two southern folks 😉
We decided we’ll be back here EVERY TIME we’re in town – Not just because of their amazing food but because of how amazing Sara and DC are.
This ended our Pueblo trip and it was bittersweet. There’s no place like home, but we really enjoyed being here, even if just for a day! Like my title suggests, it’s a hidden gem that we’ll be HAPPY to come back to 🙂
