The Mom & Pop Restaurant In Denver That Serves The Most Mouthwatering Home Cooked Meals
Are you craving a homemade meal but don’t have the time or patience to slave over a hot stove? Trust me, I know the feeling, and lucky for us slackers, Denver is home to this iconic mom and pop restaurant that serves some of the most mouthwatering home-cooked meals in the state:
Located in Denver's Highland neighborhood, Lechuga's has been the Mile High City's go-to for delicious Italian food since 1961.
Even though this Denver institution has been in business for more than 50 years, they still use the same family recipes for their famous sausage cannolis...
...savory pasta dishes...
...meaty pizzas, and other menu options.
(As per their website, "What originally began as a bakery evolved into an Italian restaurant known statewide for our original sausage canolis, square pizzas, and delicious lunch specials. While a lot has changed since those early days, we’ve kept the same recipes since the very beginning, and our dedication to hot, fresh eats and bold, memorable flavors hasn’t changed a bit.")
In addition to their original North Denver location, Lechuga's Italian Restaurant has expanded to two other spots around town, including a Lakewood storefront (7475 W. Colfax Ave.) and Kiosk along the 16th Street Mall!
The original Lechuga's Italian Restaurant is located at 3609 Tejon St. in Denver and is open Monday through Saturday from 11 am to 9 pm and on Sundays from 11 am to 6 pm. More information on their dine-in and carry-out menus can be found on their
