Simply put, the BK is awesome. When you walk in, you feel like you are in the 80's. The decor hasnt been updated, the waitresses are all dolled up. The Special is the only thing I get. An unreal amount of food for the price. Go check this place out!

This was a great little diner that we stopped for breakfast as we past through town. The decor was a bit dated but the food was great.

I went here with a group of friends. The place is small, local and relatively easy to get to. The floorplan is pure old-style greasy-spoon. Normally I like this style of eats as it harkens to my nostalgia. However, I a lover of a particular specialty as this restaurant ordered this as my choice. I will say with great disappointment,...

Service was good. Food was really good (quantity was a bit low, but not bad). I would recommend giving this place a try.

We flew in from Austin, and wanted a good home cooked meal. We ate here based off Breakfast King being voted top 10 breakfasts by the locals. I can see why. Great service (Kathy retires next week, after 41yrs- better hurry so you can meet this jewel!). Delicious food. Huge portions. We could have shared the potatoes. And the pancakes,... More

A classic spot with great basic food and a friendly experienced wait staff. Love the bright orange booths and tables too. This and Pete's Kitchen are in my opinion the two best old school breakfast and lunch diners in Denver (and I've been to pretty much all of them!).

Perhaps it was because I went there at 2am, but after reading all the great reviews, it was one of the worst meals I've had in a restaurant in a very long time. I ordered the steak and eggs. None of it was good. The side of hashbrowns were inedible due to some lingering bitter flavor; perhaps they were fried... More

I love this restaurant, I always try gyros, pancakes, onion rings are perfect, and fish deluxe burger. Workers there are friendly.

This place is less than a block from my new office, it has quickly become a favorite of mine, not just because it is so close, but because the food and service are always consistent, reasonably priced and quite yummy. This is a review of my last 6 breakfasts there and a couple of lunches from the past few weeks.... More
