We will be traveling on Christmas Day, our flight gets into Denver at noon. Does anyone know which restaurants will be open? Also will any grocery stores be open? We will have our kids 2 & 4 with us, so we do not want anything too fancy.

I noticed that on xmas day groceries close early. I know, because almost yearly I'm one of those idiots that always forgets something important for the dinner I'm cooking. Restaurants I don't know, but I hope others answer because I'm considering doing a restaurant for my family get together as they drive me nutso.

You could try the Brown Palace.
The Brown Palace Hotel (http://www.brownpalace.com/popups/oct_2005_c.cfm - broken link)

They have a brunch buffet from 10:00 to 2:30PM on Christmas day.

ooooh fantastic, a brunch!!! thanks yodi. Although it might be too upscale for the OP who will have just flown in with their two kids. But brunch is a good thought, I wonder who else is doing brunch on that day?

Here is a list from 2006. You might want to call some of these places to see if they will be open this year.

I would recommend Zaidy's Deli as it is casual, good place to bring the kids and the food is good too.

I know that growing up with a bunch of Jewish friends on the East Coast, many of them frequent Chinese restaurants on Christmas. Perhaps it's similar here, not sure, I haven't spent a Christmas here yet.

good idea, and Zaidy's has a huge Jewish following so I bet they are open. I think I've ordered in Chinese before when I lived alone and family was far away.

I think The Fort is open for a late lunch/supper type thing for Christmas. It's pretty much wild game (Mmmm, meat) and all the way down in Morrison, but it must be one of the best places I've ever been for the holidays. It's kind of fancy though, but I believe they have little things (like mac and cheese and hot dogs) for kids.
