We had the Cobb salad and the Simple side salad. Both were outstanding. Service was friendly and attentive. We sampled the Princess Yum Yum and the Graham Cracker Porter both from Denver Beer Company. That were also delicious. I would definitely highly recommend.

This is a nice tavern in the north end of the Golden Triangle. The food is fantastic and the beverages were ice cold. They will let you substitute chicken or a vegi-burger on their burgers for a change of pace - I love the Diablo...More
