Beau Jo's Restaurant Review:

Rocky Mountain-style pizza? Yes, indeed, that’s the specialty of the house at the flagship Beau Jo's. The place loads up twin crusts --- thick or thin --- with mountain-size portions of meats, cheeses and other toppings both standard and oddball (tortilla chips and salsa, for instance). Families, Little League teams and civic groups go for some 40 specialty combinations, though of course you can also build your own; even gluten-free options are available. Also offered are sandwiches, calzones, a sprawling salad bar and pitchers of draft beer for the crowd. (Not the Little Leaguers.) Though Beau Jo’s reputation has declined as the chain has grown, the original location, with its Colorado-themed décor, remains something of a destination --- and there’s still nothing like eating pie crust and honey for dessert.
