Sun Valley, Idaho: Despo’s

In Sun Valley, Despo’s, a Mexican restaurant right off of main street, cannot be beat. Unlike many of the resort towns on this list, Despo’s offers truly affordable fair. In addition, the huge portions and quality service that Trip Advisor’s kookoo48 experienced are enough to bring even the most worn out biker back from the dead. Reviewers like Bill S. on Trip Advisor agree that the KMT salad provide alternatives to a big greasy meal if stomach problems are an issue. Their hardy, authentic Mexican food offers the ease of handling and the high calorie to weight ratio that has made foods like Mexican a staple in the mountain biking world. Although Trip Advisor’s reviewers say waits can sometimes prove to be an issue, they also say the service is extremely quick and efficient. Finally, after eating, feel free to grab your bike from the bike rack and visit several of Sun Valley’s great bike shops that are located just around the corner!
