If you're hungry and want a hot meal, go elsewhere. This place is only good for drinks. I had my food order go missing and was forced to fly hungry since there wasn't enough time to prepare a replacement.

They stopped serving breakfast before 11. My lunch was burnt. The service was poor. Eat somewhere else.

Absolutely terrible food. I made a couple of mistakes during my recent stop at DIA. First, I checked Trip Advisor after my meal. Second, as a result, I ordered the salmon salad. I should have known I messed up when I saw the sickly, grayish, foul looking piece of salmon that adorned my salad. Like a fool, I took a... More

We knew we had time to spare before our flight and needed dinner, so we ended up at Lefty's. The service was not the greatest, but for how busy it was and there only being two servers one can only expect that it wouldn't be over the top service. The food was good, and came out pretty quickly. Overall not... More

I had a delay and decided to get something to eat. I picked this place because the other near places were full. It was hot, noisy and crowded. They were short-staffed but the waitress was working as hard as she could to keep up with everyone so no complaints there. The nachos with "Lefty's special cheese sauce" were no more... More

I stopped in for breakfast. It's really nice, good food. The only setback, they had one guy service g the entire place so it took a while for him to be able to get your order but he was great and the food came out quick.

Good breakfast and a great "beverage!" Debbie is a fantastic server! She is very attentive, conscientious, helpful and friendly.

I was not impressed by the food nor the service. I ordered the fish and chips and it was by far the worst fish and chips I have ever had. It took a long time to get my order, in fact, I watched several people who had come in after me get their food first. Once my food got there... More

We intended to get a drink and snack. There was a horribly loud humming noise during our entire visit. The waitress explained that it was from their cooler, as if it was the norm. It was so loud and annoying, we drank up quickly and had nothing to eat in order to get away from it. It made conversation difficult... More

About what I expected it to be all the way at the end of the southwest gates. Very average everything. Service and rules were stupid and if they didn't have a game playing on tv I wouldn't have even thought about sitting down for a beverage.

Thank yorosey
