Nice, clean, spacious 1.5 years new restaurant site. Good, friendly, afforable fresh food counter service. Vegan options, including tortilla soup.
Not a silent dedicated chess space. Please honor games in progress by not analyzing yours when done. It always gets louder than intended.
|Directions||Exit 146 west off I25 |
0.2 miles right on Hilton Pkwy if not sooner if you see front entrance.
This is where Subway used to be across from Villiage Inn and Quality Inn where North Gate Chess has had events in past. Patronize the restaurant and we might be able to make this or similar a semi-regular get together. Restaurant chess at its finest.

USCF membership in advance required. None sold onsite.
Please buy a taco or something.
Beer and margaritas on tap (21+).
Bringing outside food/drinks instead is rude to the establishment hosting us and the organizer, who is eating the USCF rating fees, which add up quickly for blitz.
