FANTASTIC! We ordered the 48hr smoked short ribs and the Southwestern salad. Absolutely amazing, both of them. Very fast and super tasty food with a great presentation. The only thing I disagree on is that the restaurant is leaning more towards the $$$ category here...More

We chose Chop Shop partly from TripAdvisor reviews and partly as it was close to the Denver Museum of Nature and Science where we were going to a program. You order at the counter from a great eclectic menu. Salads come in large and small...More

Refined Casual American - Skillfully Crafted, Quickly Served Chop Shop Casual Urban Eatery is one of Denver's premier chef driven fast casual / quick serve restaurants. Chop Shop was created with the idea that we deserve better options whether on the go or hanging out. We believe that great food doesn't need all the complications of a full service restaurant, and it should be comfortable enough to stay, hang out and enjoy a few adult beverages. At Chop Shop our main focus is to bring the freshest ingredients, highest standards, innovative techniques, and combine them with just enough service to make you comfortable and content. Our menu is seasonally crafted and prepared by chefs with a focus on clean and healthy eating, with an expansive kids menu. We also offer a tasty selection of craft beer, wine, all natural cane sodas and daily specials. Hours: Sunday-Thursday: 11am-9pm Friday-Saturday: 11am-10pm
