Gunther Toody’s is a real nostalgic 60’s diner, very well decorated, wonderful atmosphere and nice music. There are two old motorbikes and a jukebox in the dining area, walking in feels like going back in time. We went for breakfast, pancakes are very nice. Friendly...More

Good and friendly service staff, couldn't tell me if they use MSG, so they probably do, good menu and the prices are very reasonable and the food is OK, not great, but OK.

Enjoyed the entire lunch experience. Decor is strictly '50's diner --- vintage advertising, neon lights, chrome, booths & a counter. Waitresses renamed thematically & gave great service. Food was plentiful and delicious. Husband had the french dip with onion rings & a chocolate shake. I...More

Breakfast is always incredible here, and authentic American Diner Style. Service from 'Archie' was excellent, the kids enjoyed the new and entertaining WikkiStix that have replaced the coloring paper, and my Big Bopper was superb, especially the very authentic hash browns.

Almost 30 years ago, a couple believed that they could generate the "diner" philosophy in Colorado. These energetic folks knew that a diner had to give the guest four things ; quality food, quality service, a welcoming and fun atmosphere and a clean environment. Thus the "diner philosophy" was put to the test.
Back in the summer of 1986, the doors were opened to the first Gunther Toody's in Colorado Springs, CO. A small 100 seat diner came alive and brought with it the sights, sounds and feel of the 1950's and 60's. From the moment the doors opened, Gunther Toody's became an American classic. Gunther Toody's ventured into Denver. It was not long before there was a huge following for our fresh home cooked food and sassy energetic service, all presented in a fun 50's atmosphere. With 5 locations in Denver or Colorado Springs, Gunther Toody's has become the torch bearer for "diners".
