Reader: Lucile's Is the Most Overrated Restaurant That Ever Existed

Denver diners love breakfast, and brunch could be the official meal of the city. This week Gretchen Kurtz reviews Four Friends Kitchen, a worthy newcomer in the breakfast/brunch/lunch arena. And a longtime favorite with fans of morning meals is adding another link: Lucile's is coming to Evans and South Ogden. But while Four Friends is a real find, one reader isn't sure that Denver needs another Lucile's. Says Pat:
The most overrated restaurant that ever existed. Terrible food; ungodly wait times; absurd prices.
Do you think Lucile's is overrated? What do you consider the most overrated restaurant in Denver?
