Colorado's best bologna sandwich is at Blackbelly in Boulder
On a couple recent lunches, I revisited a staple of the Colorado culinary scene: The bologna sandwich.
Why it matters: The epitome of humbleness, the sandwich evokes memories of childhood lunch boxes — and is a tasty comfort food.
What's new: A handful of area restaurants have reinvented the staple, but the best is served at lunch at Blackbelly in Boulder.
What makes it great: My $12 takeout order came partially squashed in a paper bag, just like when I was a kid, and featured potato chips and cheddar cheese on thick slabs of bologna.
- The most delicious element was the pickled onions and jalapeños blended into the dijonnaise.
The bottom line: It was a messy delight.
