I'd rarely recommend going to McDonald's but in this case I would. Don't waste you money here. Both the veggie sandwich and the California sandwich were total disappointments and poor value for the money. Granted, options at the gates aren't great but...

Easy to find in terminal A. Frank was the best server. I enjoyed a great meal of fish tacos with rice. The beer was quite good, even though they had no 22 ounce glasses. Very quick and friendly service. I enjoyed all the big screen TV's so I could catch up on sports. Seating was comfortable and roomy especially by... More

In Denver airport on the way home. I had A Philly Cheese Steak and my spouse a Rubin. Both with fries. Both very good. Server was prompt and very friendly. Not a bad price for airport resturant... about $30.00 with iced tea and a drink. Definitely recommend for quick, good service when traveling through Denver airport.

Had the wings. They were mushy if that should be a way to describe them. Strange indeed. Also had the chips,. Ok flavor, but not worth it. Would not repeat.

Slow crawl service aside, this was hands down the worst "food" I have ever encountered at an airport. The nachos would be sub par even at a little league ballpark. If you are a fan of paying $10 and up for the bottom of the non name brand chip bag smothered in a big cosco can of imitation cheese sauce,... More

We usually eat at Jimmy's but thought we'd try Lefty's. Should've stayed with Jimmy's. Service was just OK. Food was bland and boring.

Don't eat here if you have a food allergy or like real food. Eggs are prefab out of a carton, preloaded with milk. No substitutions for buttermilk biscuit. So to this "grill" I give the middle finger.

The breakfast menu is pretty small, but all the entrées are made fresh. I ordered a bagel breakfast sandwich that came egg, ham and cheese. I was worried it might have been too dry, it was juicy and savory. Bob ordered a blueberry scone; it was just alright.

While in Denver Airport, waiting in Terminal A, we wanted an 'authentic' Denver breakfast, so we stopped in to Lefty's. They offer entrées prepared with green chili. Got the green chili biscuits which were soft and amazing! The green chili burrito was also very good. They just need to give more of the green chili on the items they prepare.... More
