Prices are Up All Over Colorado
The year(s) of price increases continues in Colorado. Can you find a drive-through that is offering burgers, fries, and a drink for less than $10? As a kid, I can specifically remember the sign boards at one fast food chain offering a "Big Breakfast" and it was $1.99. In 2022, the same breakfast with the exact same items is now about $7.99 at many locations.
Stretching Your Dollar in Grand Junction
For the same $7.99 you can avoid drive-thru pancakes that came without a fork, and sit down for some cheap eats while supporting a great local establishment. We tried to stay very close to the $10 mark when looking over menus. Add-ons, drinks, and extras may raise your ticket price. While food prices may continue to rise everywhere, these locations are great to know about when you have to pick something up on the go.
