Best Of 2014: Diner

Best Of 2014: Green Chili

Best Of 2014: Late-Night Dining

When one place wins in all three of these categories for six years, you're almost helpless not to do the obvious and sensible thing: stop by late at night — they're open for breakfast and lunch seven days, late nights Friday and Saturday — for a Breakfast Burrito with Green Chile, or a Green Chile Cheeseburger. After all, claiming the Green Chile crown in this town is no small feat. "I think what sets it apart is we make it by hand," with Pueblo-grown chilis, says manager Rob Anzaldua. "It's a natural, non-GMO product ... We pay attention to it, we taste it, we see what it needs." Note: King's Chef is a cash-only business. — Robert Meyerowitz

Bites 2013: Breakfast Burrito

Fit for the Food Network, this is Colorado in a bite. Why? Because green chili pumps through our veins, and King's Chef's is undisputedly badass. Even heat-freaks get it on the side to measure the madness. The fire-roasted green god-sauce, made with Pueblo green chiles and California habañeros, is gluten-free and vegan. You can keep the burrito vegetarian by subbing in MorningStar Farms veggie sausage in place of the real deal for no charge. Along with either of those sausages, bacon or ham, the flour wrap gets two eggs, onions, filling hash browns and some shredded cheese. If the whole thing were made into a movie, it'd be called, There Will Be Burn. And it'd win an Oscar. ($8.95 full/$6.50 half)
