“This is nice and close and has great Indian food! The buffet is really good, but so is anything off of the menu. They also brew their own specialty beers, the chai stout is especially tasty.”
  • 8 locals recommend
Movie Theatre
“Discount theater! Go to King Soopers first and buy something (gum?), on the back of the receipt is usually a buy one get one free admission. Can't beat the price!”

Korean Restaurant

“We go here for birthdays and special events. Exciting experience and amazing food! ”

Brewery

“We love the service and the scene here. In the summer, ask the bartender for a "Moana" Hint: It's not on the menu”
  • 7 locals recommend
Restaurant
“Sakana is the gem of Arvada. It's our go-to place for quality and artistically-prepared sushi. It's second best to Sushi Den in the area with only $$ yelp dollar sign. We recommend Sakana Roll, Tonkatsu Ramen with a seasoned egg, and Katsudon on the menu. But more often, hidden treasures await in the daily special menu hand-written on the chalk board. Closed Mondays & Tuesdays.”

“Another very close restaurant - in under 5 min you can be eating authentic Mexican food in heaping portions and margaritas as big as your head. Definitely more of a casual environment but the food and prices are good.”

Restaurant
“RIght around the corner - irresistible, authentic, English fried specialties and beers in a converted home with large yard. Go for Tilapia Tuesdays and 75 cent happy hour beers!”

Disc Golf
“Beautiful disc golf course with a meandering creek, playground, skate park, gazebo, and open space. Great place to while away an afternoon.”
