Tired of sitting in the airport

Got some respite from boredom at Lefty's by watching big screen baseball. Best part was the beer and the green chili on my southwest burger. Burger was well done which is decidedly NOT my preference but you don't get to choose doneness. People seem to be sick of dealing with travel and are short... read more

I went to to this place because my brother recommend it. Supposed to open at 6am so I figured boarding my plane at 0630 wouldn't be a problem. Well they didn't open until 0610 and nothing was ready. They said it would take at least 10 minutes to heat up the gravy for biscuits and gravy (which is what was... More

Our waitress, Gale, was most pleasant and friendly. Recommended her favorites when we asked her. The chicken strips and kettle chips were very good as was the Chicago hot dog. We opted for a corner table that was available do we didn't feel crowded. Nice experience

Not a bad stop as far as airport bars go. Most of which tend to be faceless stops. Denver is a huge airport, so any spot not over run is awesome.

Lefty's Colorado Trail Grille DIA bar guacamole and chips. Couple of beers watching the Super Bowl pregame before boarding. Good service and reasonably priced for and airport bar. The guacamole was good and it also came with an interesting red salsa. I was pleasantly surprised since I generally think of airport bars as a ripoff.

The food surprised me and my father. We'd had to leave in 20 minutes and wanted some bacon cheeseburgers. We were rendered speechless at $27 for 2 bacon cheeseburgers; and 1 Pepsi. If it was a little cheaper it would be an easy 5-stars

Service was friendly and reasonably quick despite being quite busy; the chicken tenders and fries were quite good with a very generous portion but the fish of the fish and chips was disappointing with a less generous portion. The tables were squeezed in a little too tight especially with the need to find a place for your carryon and our... More

The steak and onions were good but the roll was edible but not that great, the french fries were decent along with the service. I may go there again but nothing outstanding. Service member was nice but service was slow.

Had the Philly Cheese steak. Was decent but a bit overpriced. There was a counter order side and a "full service" side that really wasn't distinguishable until after you ordered form the counter..
