I was here on a weeknight. It is a large restaurant with several big TVs. The menu was typical sports bar food, with a lot of craft beers that could be tried (I tried a nice one). I ordered a salad, which was OK. What made it special was a corner of the plastic bag that was used for the... More

I wouldn't necessarily go here for an outstanding meal experience but the ability to people watch is worth the visit. Our server seemed a little less than interested in working for the day but we had fun anyway watching the crowds roll by. It was enhanced by watching the eclectic group of people coming by that had attended Pridefest. The... More

Went here for lunch while in Denver for a meeting. We were unable to get an outdoor table but they seated us at a table right next to the open windows/door so it was just like being outdoors. The turkey burger is all white meat and was one of the juiciest, most flavorful turkey burgers I have had in a... More

we walked by this place several times and then decided to try it out for lunch. So glad we did! It is the original rock cafe in Denver and quite large when you get inside. Very cafe looking with the metal chairs and tables. You can sit at a table, bar or outside and watch the people on 16 street... More

Experienced a very enjoyable, pleasant to pallet lunch this week at this clean, quick service patio cafe! Server, wish I remembered his name, was very attentive and informative and appreciative of all customers! Thanks! Only wish the City of Denver would do something about " the homeless tramps" who are making 16th Street an eyesore and uncomfortable experience! Really, Denver,... More

The burgers were awesome! With different ones to choose from with combinations I havent seen anywhere else. Wait staff was nice. Looks like an old diner on the inside, and you can get a beer!

Our family had a couple of different sandwiches, and a wrap. The buffalo chicken sandwich was a little too spicy, but was still good although about average. The same could be said for the Desperado Burger, cooked to order, but maybe just a tad bland. The wrap was probably the best of the 3 dishes that we ordered. The biggest... More

This is a older, historic bar/restaurant on the 16th. St. Mall It's a great place, with tons of atmosphere. Had a Classic Rock and Roll burger. It was delicious and cooked to medium rare perfection. Onion rings on the side were perfect. The cheese fry appetizer by itself a meal. Topped it off with cheese cake burrito with strawberry sauce... More

Lively happy hour with many options. The menu isn't as straight forward as it could be...but the beer and pork sliders are worth the effort!
