Restaurants

Despite its suburban location, Northglenn creates a rich dining experience with its treasure trove of Italian, Mexican and Asian cuisine as well as classic grills. You don't find many fine dining options here, but cheap eats await around every corner. Local establishments reign supreme in this small community with local staples such as Saigon Basil and El Sabor Jerezano delivering some of the best international dishes this side of Denver.

Locals with a taste for authentic Vietnamese cuisine rave about Saigon Basil, a classy establishment located just off the interstate. The pho never disappoints, but if you're looking for a please-all dish, go for one of the noodle bowls. For a sweet complement to your meal, try one of the fantastic boba teas or the mango smoothie. Don't be intimidated by the extensive menu, as the chefs prepare every dish with full flavor, and get ready for some huge portions.

For hearty Mexican fare, head to El Sabor Jerezano for some of the best fajitas and chicken chimichangas in town. The unassuming strip mall location may give you the sense that this is a hole-in-the-wall restaurant, but the stuffed carne tacos with tender meat say otherwise. Locals love the baskets of free chips and salsa served at every table, and the extra strong margaritas keep you coming back for more.

When it comes to nightlife, you don't find the clubs and rowdy dance halls of downtown Denver, but the local bars and pubs create a great atmosphere for chatting while enjoying a cheap beer. Head to The Glenn to experience karaoke, live music during the summer and homemade fried pickles. You can also stop by for brunch to enjoy endless mimosas and a fully stocked Bloody Mary bar.

History

Once a rural farming community, Northglenn's development began in the late 1950s when commercial areas, schools and new neighborhoods began popping up after the city's boundaries were determined. Only about 500 residents called Northglenn home in 1960, but the decade brought rapid growth until approximately 26,000 residents made up the population in 1969. The city continued to expand in the following decades.

The city may not have any museums, but its rich culture in the form of fine and performing arts has become a cornerstone of the community. The D.L. Parsons Theatre holds local performances, and Northglenn's youth theatre received the Colorado Theatre Guild "Outstanding Children's Theatre" award in 2011.

The Northglenn community celebrates annual events with fun for the whole family, including the Teddy Bear Picnic in June and a flashlight egg hunt in March.

Transportation

However, drivers have the easiest time navigating Northglenn with low traffic and plentiful free street parking. If you do need a ride to the airport or downtown Denver, Uber drivers and local taxi services are always just a phone call away.
