Hidden away in an industrial area East of Denver, Emil-lene's is a Denver tradition. It is a fun place to take visitors, as it is in an old farm house. The wait staff is especially friendly, and the food is excellent with a lot of...More

Not sure what is going on here, but this place is in bad shape... Apparently they are having some troubles??? In a nutshell,... off the beaten path, anyone who's dined there probably isn't going to return, prices are at least double what they should be...More

I've lived in the Denver area all of my life, and I had never heard of this place until the other day when family from out of town wanted to meet there. On the way, I was sure I made a wrong turn. There is...More

We chose this spot as our last meal of 2012, New Year's Eve. Our waitress was a total crack up. We enjoyed the relish tray and plate of spaghetti and chose the filet and lobster for our main course. They were both decent. The filet...More

prices start at $27 for a 5 oz filet and go UP from ther to around $40. steaks were average, baked potatoes were only moderately warm. the service was good, and the pepper shaker was entertaining. Save your money and go to Outback.

First the outside was like a patchwork of buildings at the end of the road. Then you walk on the porch and you are taken to the dining room. I'm telling you I thought to myself the food must be killer for this place to...More
