Lefty's used to be a great Spot with an over the top cheeseburger and delicious natural cut fries. Not anymore. The food is barely edible with a so so burger and soggy, pitiful fries.

This place seemed a little uncared for and not supper clean. The food was good but the service wasn't very good at all. I had a burger with fries and some hot wings. The Burger was OK The Fries were terrible The hot wings were good. Not a lot of choices traveling, but this worked at the moment..

Like everyone else, stopped here for a bite between flights. The menu did look good. The food did not match the anticipation. I will say our service was very good. Drinks were kept full. Even gave us a big glass to go. However the burgers were horrendous. We thought that being in Colorado, where cattle are plentiful, the burgers would... More

I'd rarely recommend going to McDonald's but in this case I would. Don't waste you money here. Both the veggie sandwich and the California sandwich were total disappointments and poor value for the money. Granted, options at the gates aren't great but...

Easy to find in terminal A. Frank was the best server. I enjoyed a great meal of fish tacos with rice. The beer was quite good, even though they had no 22 ounce glasses. Very quick and friendly service. I enjoyed all the big screen TV's so I could catch up on sports. Seating was comfortable and roomy especially by... More

In Denver airport on the way home. I had A Philly Cheese Steak and my spouse a Rubin. Both with fries. Both very good. Server was prompt and very friendly. Not a bad price for airport resturant... about $30.00 with iced tea and a drink. Definitely recommend for quick, good service when traveling through Denver airport.

Had the wings. They were mushy if that should be a way to describe them. Strange indeed. Also had the chips,. Ok flavor, but not worth it. Would not repeat.

Slow crawl service aside, this was hands down the worst "food" I have ever encountered at an airport. The nachos would be sub par even at a little league ballpark. If you are a fan of paying $10 and up for the bottom of the non name brand chip bag smothered in a big cosco can of imitation cheese sauce,... More

We usually eat at Jimmy's but thought we'd try Lefty's. Should've stayed with Jimmy's. Service was just OK. Food was bland and boring.
