The Lakewood Grill

     The history of West Colfax is legendary: from a dusty dirt road to a trolley line, Highway 40 was the original gateway to the Rockies in the 1950's when the Lakewood Grill was established. The same time Jack Kerouac was roaming the local drinking holes while writing On the Road . It is rumored that Dean, Cassady and Sal himself sat right here to reflect on the now famous road trip. The Lakewood Grill has and is an integral part of Colfax history. And so as we toast Sal and our history you will often hear the words of Jack Kerouac:
"The first sip is joy, the second is gladness, the third is serenity, the fourth is madness, the fifth is ecstasy."
