We ate at Lefty's at the airport. It was reasonably priced and the food was very good. I'm usually not fond of eating at the airport. But this was the exception as we were pleasantly surprised with the price and food quality. I'll eat there again without hesitation.

I have been eating here for the last 10 years. I love the place! The food is excellent and is located in the terminal. Need a meal between flights...this is it!

Thought we would grab a quick dinner between flights.....we each got one glass of water, waiter never returned to refill them. We ordered chicken strips and fish tacos. I asked if I could get the tacos without cabbage. I was told this was not possible. Maybe it's a policy because when the dish came out I took one piece of... More

All the food that was brought to our table was frozen before coming to the table. The service was blunt and unhelpful. Go somewhere else.

I stopped in here for a quick breakfast before my flight (it's located in the airport at gate A46 as it was delayed and was pleasantly surprised. The food came out very quickly, tasted great and the service was attentive, polite and helpful. I'd stop in here again. Highly recommended for the rushed traveler.

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
