3 City Spots To Pick Up Dinner on a Busy Night

No time to whip up a homemade dinner? No problem.

These local spots serve delicious meals the whole family will love, and they make pickup easy.

True Food Kitchen

This restaurant is proof that takeout doesn’t have to be unhealthy. Order the Tuscan kale salad or pan-seared bass for yourself and a chicken teriyaki bowl or a grass-fed burger for your littles.

Easy Pickup: Decide what you’re craving, then order and pay for it right on the restaurant’s app. Schedule a pickup time up to a week in advance.
Where: Cherry Creek

Blue Pan Pizza

Pizza is a family favorite for a good reason—it has a way of turning a chaotic day around. Denverites go crazy for Blue Pan’s Detroit-style pie and appreciate the gluten-free crust available to accommodate food sensitivities.

Easy Pickup: Order your ’za online, then pick it up from the table outside of the restaurant. Delivery is also available within the surrounding neighborhoods if you’re running short on time (or dealing with a fussy toddler).

Where: West Highland and Congress Park

Edgewater Public Market

If your family can’t agree on a cuisine, head to Edgewater Public Market. From ramen to pasta to gyros, the food hall has something to offer even the pickiest of eaters.

Easy Pickup: This eatery boasts a big parking lot that’s easy to get in and out of for quick order and pickup. Plus, it’s right by the Edgewater Marketplace where you can squeeze in some errands before heading home.

Where: Edgewater, near Sloan’s Lake
