Breakfast King

300 W. Mississippi Ave. Denver, CO 80223 | Southwest Denver | 303-733-0795

Location Description:

The menu at this classic 24/7 diner is frozen in the early ´70s -- long before mainstream American food began taking on influences from other corners of the globe. Like a culinary time capsule, the King still serves Coney Island hot dogs, chiliette (egg noodles slathered in red chili and served with Saltines), biscuits and gravy, and a ham dinner complete with a ham steak, canned pineapple rings and a hot vegetable. The King has atmosphere oozing from every cracked-vinyl seat. Plus, the grub is exactly what you'd expect from a place just off the interstate: served hot, fast and in trucker-friendly portions.
