Many would argue this is the restaurant that defines the state.

Gosh, I love to eat. It's just a fact that food and I will always be best friends. From cooking to consuming, and even the nap afterward, there are few things in life that bring me more joy. At some point in my life I would love to travel the country eating and this list is a great starting point.

Wouldn't you like to eat at the most iconic restaurant in every state?

Thrillist agrees, which is why they created "The Most Iconic Restaurant in Every State" list. They are quick to say that these restaurants are not necessarily the oldest in each state, but they are ones that have been around for more than 30 years and are still crowd favorites. Being able to stick around for a long time and continue to be loved are two key indicators of iconic-ness.

They determined Buckhorn Exchange is the most iconic for Colorado.

Although there are several options to choose from in Denver, Buckhorn Exchange continues to hold strong. The city looked much different when they opened in 1893, but the food has remained pretty much the same with big portions and mouth-watering steaks. Rumor has it that Teddy Roosevelt and Dwight Eisenhower both dined at the Buckhorn.
