Where we've featured it
Like an older sibling in diner form, this is a home-feel staple that’s always there for us. Regardless of mood or craving, Steuben’s is a Denver classic that somehow always has what we need both atmosphere and food-wise. Meatloaf, mac & cheese, burgers - it’s all great. Don’t overlook the Maine lobster roll either.
Your sister’s in town and wants to hang at a cool spot, but she’s going to have her toddler in tow. Enter Steuben’s. This Denver classic features diner standards like fried chicken, meatloaf, burgers, and soups, but they’ve also got a few curveballs (see: Maine lobster roll) that keep things interesting. Add in their legit kids’ menu and a serious cocktail program, and it’s a win-win situation for grown-ups and kids alike.
Steuben’s is a modern diner that’s at its best on a Sunday afternoon. The Maine lobster roll might sound intimidating given there’s no nearby coast, but it’s excellent, and the tortilla soup is one of the best we’ve ever had. Plus, their ping pong bar Ace is around the corner, so after you eat, you can get a game and a beer in and say you did your “exercise” for the day.
