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

You must try the fish tacos!! Some of the best I've ever had! The kettle chips with the chipotle dipping sauce are awesome too! My husband got the southwest spicy burger & he really liked it.

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.

Thank Dennis720
