GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. - The famed "Three Amigos" receiving corps for the Denver Broncos was famous for making great plays on the football field.

Now, one of those three is making moves in the kitchen.

Vance Johnson, Broncos wide receiver from 1985-93, '95, is finding a post football career in the kitchen. Johnson opened his second restaurant on the Western Slope of Colorado on Friday.

"Vance's Epic-Curious" features menu items from cities all over the NFL. He even has hamburgers named for each team in the AFC West.

There is also a menu item for a hungry group called the "Hungry Huddle." It features 1/2 rack baby-back ribs, 1/2 rack Louis, smoked sausage regular or spicy, brisket, and half a chicken with six pieces of garlic toast with four sides.

"Vance's Epic-Curious" is located on 1st and Grand in Grand Junction, Colorado.
