Chef Zorba's

Greek-American diners pepper the stretch of Colfax known as Greek Town, but Chef Zorba's resides just off Denver's favorite street on a calm and tree-shaded block of Congress Park. Neighbors have been strolling to Chef Zorba's since 1979. Owner Karen LuKanic bought the spot in 2018, and she kept many of Zorba's traditional dishes. Among pages of American diner items -- omelets, burgers, green chile cheese fries -- there's a solid mass of recognizable standards, along with a few surprises, like an always solid chicken-lemon-rice soup, also known as avgolemono.
