I mentioned this first place as part of this post but didn't really do it justice.
There was once a place on south Havana street in aurora called "The Yum Yum Tree" It was one third Mall food court, one third buffet, one third games arcade and two thirds awesome. You had this indoor plaza/court of individual restaurants of many types, with arcade games scattered about. I recall my first real tastes of barbecue and other things as being there. I guess it faded into obscurity right about as I was entering high school, but I recall quite a few enjoyable times there. Of importance to note is while I recall enjoyable times, it was probably nightmarish for parents at that time and would be more so now- questionable food, and unsupervised kids...
Far more palatable to my folks was the Organ Grinder Pizza; It wasn't the games on this one, but old movies accompanied by a truly monstrous pipe organ that you could see the workings of through the window- The organ was truly a work of extremity and art
And one more...The 94th Aero Squadron- Built at the Stapleton Airport, with a WW1 french chateau theme, I remember cool meals there with my parents while we watched the planes take off and land- there was a replica Fokker Dr12(the plane made famous by the Red Baron, who was also famous for his Pizza) The restaurant was a pricey but very cool place to eat- I recall shrimp in some sort of pinkish cream sauce.
Unlike the other restaurants I mentioned this one actually burned and never re-opened, and even that airport has closed in favor of DIA-
I wound up making myself wistful for those places- on my way out to make new memories and eat new food
Here are some other takes
