The Saucy Noodle

727 S. University Blvd. Denver, CO 80209 | South Denver | 303-733-6977

Location Description:

The slurpiest, most garlicky plate of spaghetti can be had at this longtime Denver favorite, which was down but not out when a fire gutted it in 2000. The new space has been updated and expanded, but the red-checkered tablecloths and Frank Sinatra songs are still there, as is the sign: "If you don't like garlic, go home."
