If you have ever been up to Idaho Springs on a daytime adventure then you have probably stopped in for lunch at Beau Jo’s pizza. If you have never been here you are truly missing out! Since 1973, this family-owned restaurant in Idaho Springs is widely known for having some of THE BEST pizzas in Colorado. The original location is in Evergreen but they also have 5 other restaurants in Colorado. Denver, Boulder, Arvada, Longmont, and Steamboat Springs. Beau Jo’s Pizza starts each day by making the dough fresh, then continues making it fresh all day long.
The dough is rolled to order, crust folded to create a “containment system” for the next step in pizza making: the toppings. Every mountain pie served is complete with an entire heap of toppings. It’s not uncommon to see customers getting served 5+ pound pizzas! They have perfected the dough-sauce-cheese combination to create a mouth-watering experience. Get yourself a slice of Colorado at this beautiful landmark and don’t forget the honey on the crust!
