This Fourth of July weekend will be full of fireworks and such all-American fare as fried chicken. And just in time for the holiday, CoraFaye's Cafe moved from its decade-old home on Colorado Boulevard to 16251 East Colfax Avenue in Aurora. The location is a little tougher to find (it's on the second floor), but the ambience is the same — as is the fried chicken, which won praise from Guy Fieri as well as our Best Fried Chicken award in the Best of Denver 2016. Says Jennifer: 

Love the Kool-Aid there!! (Okay, and the chicken, too)

Adds Joe:

That fried chicken is so good I'm willing to willing to fly along Colfax Avenue today in the hot July sun! Gotta get me some for the Fourth of July...if I can hold out on the leftovers that long.

Want to grab some of Denver's best fried chicken? CoraFaye's Cafe is open from 11 to 5:30 p.m. today, and closed tomorrow. Where else do you go for fried chicken in Denver?
