The 1-25 south of Fort Collins soon starts becoming freeway hell, building to a crescendo as you approach Denver. Unfortunately, most side trips are just on smaller two-lane highways that lead to suburbia. If you happen to be on one of these passing through Greeley, it’s worth a lunch stop at Rumi’s House of Kabob, a friendly family place serving good Middle Eastern food. Make sure you order the red lentil soup, a flavourful puree with lots of veggies, garlic and jalapeno. My soup came as a combo with a fork-tender lamb curry. Other popular lunch items are kabobs and felafel or gyro (beef and lamb) sandwiches.
