We always enjoy coming to Merles. The food was very good. I had the grilled chicken salad with medium spice. Very tasty. The chips they served were great. Very salty but they disappeared. The service was very attentive and she joked along wit us. Great personality.

This is a very busy, popular local restaurant. There's often a wait, but it goes quickly. It's right on Littleton Main St.

I had yams and guac and the ahi salad. Was not disappointed. Had to get an order of yams and guac to go, they were so delish! The salad was fresh and delicious; about one level under the yardhouse version, which is my absolute favorite. I am currently craving the yams and guac so I'm guessing I'll be having lunch... More

We went at lunchtime. We had choice of burgers, salads, and sandwiches. Food was good! You could have beer n wine n dessert as well. Apparently it used to be a car garage. You can see the garage door n lifts used to pick up the cars. They have nice paintings of the old west.

This place was hopping on a Saturday for lunch, but we were able to get a patio table on a gorgeous Saturday afternoon. Our waitress was very friendly without being overbearing. When I was ordering, she gave some helpful inside information to guide my choices. Our food came quickly and both entrees were tasty. Portions were large. Despite being busy,... More

updated review 8-21-2016: Merle's is our go-to place, whenever we are in downtown Littleton. In fact, we had a very good hamburger there today. The service is always good, the food is always good. Parking can be a bit difficult, but at least you don't have to pay for it, as you do in downtown Denver. It's comfortable, quaint, welcoming,... More

Merle's is located on a corner in downtown Littleton. We had bison burgers, which were excellent. They make their French Fries fresh from potatoes rather than frozen. They too were excellent. The service is friendly and attentive. The restaurant is clean and inviting.

We had lunch, and the food was reliable, nothing espectacular, but good. I had the chicken fajitas, my husband had the salmon sandwich, and our 4 yr. old grandson had the children's menu hamburger with fries. The service was quick, and attentive. We sat outside in the upstairs terrace. Everything was good.

Friends visiting from Texas were staying in the Littleton area and wanted to know a good place. Having been here once before many years ago, I recommended Merle's, but I didn't remember much about it, a mistake I won't make again. We sat upstairs, which is open to the air with a view of the Littleton downtown area and beautiful... More
