good choice concourse A by gate 48

Airport seating by gate was very uncomfortable on hot day. Went into Lefty's by windows and A/C made it very pleasant. There was only one waiter on our side but did a good job of remembering who was next to be served. Had a cheeseburger was about $11 which is common where I live and thought it was... read more

Wow. Granted this is an airport, but the worst food I have had. I would rate it to very very bad bar food. Not worth the time or money

If you have time to find other food options in the Denver Airport, then do ! It's expensive, the food quality is low and the service is slow. After waiting for 20 minutes, tried to order their BBQ chicken salad but they were out of chicken. Ended up with lettuce smothered in caesar dressing with a burnt burger bun for... More

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 tempered. Lots of restaurants at DIA....

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
