This was so disappointing. I've been in Denver 18 years and finally tried Denver Diner. Besides terribly slow service the food was beyond bad. The pancakes were nearly inedible. So difficult to swallow, a chocking hazard for sure. Grilled cheese was salty and no where near cheesy. Plain and simple, I have nothing to report that's positive. This place was... More

Have been here several times and it never disappoints. The chili cheese fries are a must. Breakfast items and lunch items are fantastic!

The blue cheese burger was amazing! You can get it bbq'd any way you like. The burger wrap was pretty original too! Very impressed!

Great service, great atmosphere! Went there for breakfast and then went back for lunch. We had bloody marys and mimosas at breakfast. Wasn't all that jazzed about lunch but breakfast was amazing!

Nothing to say but good things about this place. Is it perfect? of course not but very few places are. Just the right price for a short stop on a Uber ride home from a drunken night. You get what you pay fot. And the grease hits the spot.

The crunchy French toast is amazing & the chicken fried steak & eggs are one of the best my husband has ever had. The service & food are superior each time we eat there. Also I've never been in a restaurant that is as clean as this one. Top it with very reasonable prices, a must stop in!

My other half and I eat here a few times a month. He always gets the BOB burger or fish and chips. I get the Monte Christo or the fish and chips also. Everything is made fresh and brought out hot. They will cook our fries longer and their onion rings are some of the best in town.

The decor is hip, there are large TVs and a huge menu. You can eat breakfast anytime which makes for a perfect diner! I had a perfect breakfast that included my favorite carbs: hash browns and pancakes with eggs and crispy bacon.

Where we're from, restaurants don't close at 9 or 10 during the week like they do in Denver. So finding a spit that's open late after the hockey game was a huge plus. Big portions, cooked to order. Sirloin salad was real good.

I can't believe that I've lived in Denver for 8 years, and I hadn't ate here until last night! I had the chicken tenders which came with a huge portion of crispy fries, vegetable medley of cauliflower, squash, and broccoli, and a huge piece of texas toast! Everything was cooked well and our waitress Jamie was a pleasure! I will... More
