True to its Theme! One of the best Diners I've ever been to. Very friendly and helpful staff. Right down to their uniforms and makeup. There isn't anything on the menu that wasn't exactly as described and pictured. Make sure you go there starving! You will not be disappointed. Breakfast food available all day. Burgers, fries, drinks and handmade malts/shakes... More

This is a 50s themed diner. My kids love to watch them make shakes. They have a pinball game next to a bank of quarter machines. They also have hula hoops and a baseball type game you can win gumballs. The food is as you would expect for a diner. If you like spicy try the atomic chicken fingers.

Had fun at this 50s inspired diner. The food was good and the staff was great! Neither my husband nor I could finish all the food on our plates. Gunther Toody's breakfast is pretty darn good.

Living in Indiana I was brought up on breaded pork tenderloin sandwiches. But living in Houston the past 32 years I have not had one from a restaurant so when we visited denver this weekend I was looking forward to this restaurant because they have one on the menu. My family all got burgers and I ordered what they claimed... More

We don't understand when you have 5 employees standing around, you can't even walk the guest to their table instead of pointing. The floor and tables were disgusting, the floors had food and utensils on them, not once during our 30 minute visit did anyone clean up. Don't appreciate employees yelling across the room. The waitress was unattentive.

This Gunther Toody's has excellent chicken fried chicken and corned beef hash for breakfast. For lunch, I like the Monte Cristo sandwich, which is one of the world's weirdest but most tasty sandwiches. It can get busy, so plan well. The location is good, too, being right off I-25. Try it.

Once again way over salted. Even if the service is good will not be back. Our waitress was attentive and brought us clean silverware when the ones we originally had was note to be dirty.

We eat here on a regular basis and it is always good. My last review, I gave it 5 stars. Today we were directed to a table where we sat for quite some time with no acknowledgement from anyone. Funny thing is that the girl who sat us was also our server, eventually, so she knew we were there. When... More

A bit on the pricy side but worth it. An entertaining atmosphere with top-notch diner classics and then some.

My friend and I had just gone through a horrible 2 hour ordeal trying to get our rental car, so we were already behind schedule, and STARVING! We found Gunther Toody's by accident and decided to give it a try. I loved the atmosphere! Our server was quite congenial, and I enjoyed my food immensely. Granted, it was about 3:30... More
