Sick of the same old fast-food? "Come grub" at Tocabe for unique and incredible food that makes a difference.

In the past year, we've eaten our fair share of fast-food chicken sandwiches, burritos, and pizzas ad nauseum. If your palate is craving something different, but still need it fast, "come grub" at Tocabe. It's all about the authentic American Indian family recipes shared by Ben Jacobs, one of the two "Indian owners" (Matt Chandra). This is the good stuff: ranch-to-table, grass-fed bison and chicken, local organic produce for salsas, and toppings such as Osage hominy, sweet corn, tomatoes (just to name a few), all wrapped up in authentic Indian fry bread. It's all in the fry bread! Try this and you'll never go back to burritos!

Tocabe is no stranger to Colorado. It opened its first location in north Denver in December 2008, and has been featured in The New York Times and Diners, Drive-ins and Dives, just to name a few. Their second restaurant is located in Greenwood Village.

Even though the organic quality and unique flavors of the food makes it stand out, it's the greater concept of the community-driven restaurant rooted in Jacobs's Osage heritage that makes this place even more special.

When you eat at Tocabe (which means "blue" in his native language and was named for his mom's favorite color—awww), you are supporting a culturally-driven and motivated business. Jacobs and Chandra source as much of their food from Native American suppliers, which include ranchers and farmers, and are equally committed to their mission through their branding: the Tocabe logo with the signature three hands represents the three villages of the Osage, as well as the contemporary Native American design aesthetic in both of the restaurants, including the contemporary music of Native American artists (we're talking EMD, pop, rock).
