BBQ Belt Road Trip 4,000 Delicious Miles, Part Two. HeidiTown.com

Guest post by Mechelle Martz-Mayfield. Read part one here. MISSISSIPPI/LOUISIANA On the way from Tennessee to Louisiana, we drove through the corner of Mississippi, the most fun US state to spell in my opinion. If you happen to find yourself in Jackson, I recommend stopping at Brent’s Drugs. This classic diner and soda fountain from 1946 is the perfect road trip stop. I ordered a classic cherry limeade, and my

Introducing TacosandPho.com For Those Who Love Food. Bennys Tacos. HeidiTown (2)

I thought I’d written this post. Seriously. For some reason, I convinced myself that I had written an introduction to TacosandPho.com on HeidiTown. Alas, I had not. So, while I started this new venture some time ago, here is a proper introduction. During the pandemic, I started a new blog. It was sort of out of boredom. I wasn’t traveling as much and let’s face it, I wanted an excuse

Seeking New & Old in Leadville, Colorado The Dining Scene. HeidiTown (17)

When you think of Leadville, images of snow covered peaks and spectacular Colorado nature probably come to mind, and that would be accurate. However, there are some great dining finds in this little town. From tacos to steak and even vegan, Leadville has got it. We tend to eat and drink our way through HeidiTown trips, and this was no exception. We’d come to Leadville to celebrate my favorite holiday,

Dining at the Monarch Casino in Black Hawk, Colorado: Pho to Flan

Last Thursday, we ate our way through Monarch Casino Resort Spa during a progressive dinner for the media. From tacos and tequila at a southwestern restaurant to a dessert buffet bursting with sweet treats, come eat with me at Monarch Casino Resort Spa, the newest casino in Black Hawk, Colorado. We started at Bistro Mariposa, a modernly designed space that will whisk diners away to the southwest. As we sat

Eating all the Tacos in Colorado Springs, Colorado. HeidiTown (2)

Here’s the deal, tacos are my favorite. Unless you have just arrived in HeidiTown, you’re probably well aware of my passion for this particular food. I also love green chiles and I don’t care if they come from Colorado or New Mexico, but I digress. This post is about all about tacos.  By the way, if you aren’t watching “Taco Chronicles” on Netflix, do it. It’s like this show was

An Escape & Taco Celebration in Steamboat Springs, Colorado. HeidiTown (9)

I have a long relationship with Steamboat Springs. In fact, one of my best friends moved there more than a decade ago, so it has always been a place I’ve visited. However, with the craziness of life and HeidiTown, it had been three years since my last visit, so when we finally spent the weekend there in June, we were way overdue. An Outdoor Escape & Taco Celebration I haven’t

A Little Vacation in a Tiny Home in Lyons, Colorado

I have stayed in four tiny homes and have concluded that I could not permanently live in a tiny house. I am too messy and quite frankly, I like having stuff. As a vacation rental, however, tiny homes are perfect. They more than meet my needs for a weekend getaway and they are ideal for a longer stay. For instance, my parents rented a tiny home for nearly a month

A Taco Tour & Mezcal Outing in Greeley, Colorado. HeidiTown (18)

People really, really like tacos. I learned this when I wrote a little piece in November called, “When it Come to Tacos, Longmont, Colorado is Winning.” This post caused quite the stir and was even picked up by Google News. Readers left impassioned messages for me on this blog, on Facebook and on Twitter. I had not predicted this sort of passion around a small tortilla stuffed with meat. Residents

When it Comes to Tacos, Longmont, Colorado is Winning. Benny's Tacos. HeidiTown.com

There are few cities along Colorado’s Front Range that have a better taco scene than Longmont—maybe none. Google search “tacos in Longmont” and tons of entries come up, from places like Fuzzy’s Tacos to lots of locally owned joints. I asked citizens on HeidiTown’s Facebook page their favorite taco in Colorado. National Taco Day inspired the question and I got a number of responses but was blown away by how
