I don't write many reviews, but really like this place. Great atmosphere, and the pizza is pretty good. I've been going there since I was in college. Have fun!

Been here 3 times, had something completely different each time and it is all good! Pizza, sandos, soup, and deserts are so good. Our server Ashton was attentive and nice. It is always fun to come here!

The reason it has been around ever since the Indians left is because it is that good. I love the old school atmosphere and the beer specials. I will always make it in a couple of times a year even though it is out of my way.

Bonnie Brae Tavern is one of those places that becomes "your place" after you've visited once. The menu is great and the staff is even better. They are friendly and very good with kids--great kids menu, too! We simply love going there--the fried chicken dinner is so good (just like grandma used to make) but the pizza is their best. Salads are good, too.

I love Bonnie Brae Tavern. The old style booths, the friendly atmosphere, the no frills menu, and the good eats.

If you want good old fashioned american style sandwiches or if you want good pizza, this is your place. The food is good. Sports are on the TVs. And the beers are flowing.

Pizza, pizza, pizza. Talk about good pizza. Bonnie Brae Tavern rocks the house. You can't get no better than Bonnie Brae. I highly recommend Bonnie Brea.

I enjoyed the pizza here, we got the white and Mexican pizza. I enjoyed the white better personally. The service was overall good and the atmosphere was nice. A tad over priced in my opinion.

I love going to Bonnie Brea Tavern for lunch, it's like stepping back in time! Food is classic. The menu has everything from meat loaf to spaghetti and meatballs to crispy-crust pizza comes with tangy sauce and fresh toppings, and the sufficiently greasy burgers taste even better when washed down with a beer. It has been a neighborhood, family run restaurant since 1934.

Like stepping back in time! Food is classic. Service is a bit cranky, but somehow it fits the atmosphere. A truly genuine Denver establishment that is family and neighborhood friendly.

Pros: Set your expectations for time warp

Cons: absolutely none

This is my favorite thin-crust pizza in town. My husband and I also like the Caesar Salad for Two. We've always found that if you're friendly to the wait staff, they are quite friendly back. Insider tip: if the place is really busy, and there's a long wait for a table, you can go to the kitchen door and order your pizza while you wait. Then it arrives shortly after you're seated.

This place is one of those places you HAVE to go to. The environment may be outdated... but the service is good and the food great (assuming you've been looking for a local place that won't break the bank and you want to dress casually). Located south of Cherry Creek shopping... this place is great. You never know who will show up... its a local's favorite.

First and foremost, the pizza here is awesome. REALLY REALLY good. My top 2 or 3 in town. Really, that's the only reason to go. The place has the ambience of a bowling alley -- a cool historic bowling alley, but still. I've been in twice in the last 6 months, and both times, there were screaming children. We ate quickly, loved the pizza, but didn't linger. Good place for a quality quick bite, and I guess a convenient place for Wash Park dwellers, but not a place I want to hang out for any length of time.

Bonnie Brae has unquestionably the best pizza in Denver. Everything else is pretty darn good too. GIve it a try and you'll become a regular too.

I have enjoyed Bonnie Brae Tavern's pizza since I was a child. Pizza from Bonnie Brae, Beer/Soda, and a Sunday Broncos game with family... heaven!

This place used to be a regular stop when going out - since we started going there about 4 years ago, the quality has gone down almost every time. Last time our pizza was basically raw dough - we sent it back and got charcoal. They have a great "family" pizza deal on Sunday nights where you get a huge pizza, sodas, dessert pizza, and salad (think bag-o-salad) for around $20 so the declining quality has really hurt. I didn't rate the atmosphere 'cuz some people hate the 50's diner-style while others love it. The no-windows exterior reminds me of the places mom told you not to go to. I feel like I've done something wrong when I order - the servers are just kinda scary. Please stop the decline before it's too late!

so there are a bunch of folks sayin that this is the best pizza on earth. well i guess they have never been to the east coast. thats a bold statement and should not be taken lightly. yes it is good pizza but it's not the the bees knees. i have to say i dug the pizza. it reminded me of roller rink pizza, which is a guilty pleasure of mine. bonnie brae's pizza blows the chain pizza joints outa the water. it is an odd place, kinda like walkin into a grandparents head. i think everyone should check it out and see for your self. the pizza is worth checkin out. the wait staff is a little odd but so am i so it fit. enjoy. hope this helps.

This is just a fun, down-home place to eat pizza and other wonderful food in the middle of Denver. You can see friends from all over the area, and have wonderful food. The staff makes sure that you are happy and well fed!

Pros: Inexpensive, Atmosphere

One of the best pizza joints in the country. They will ship to you on dry ice also and it is awesome. I am a loyal, distant customer who craves the pie.

Well hey it's a bar and it's got bar mentality.
The staff don't really care and aren't nice to visitors or even eachother (especially newcomers), but the food is like granny's cooking (sans love).
The place is like a historical landmark.
If you like grease and a real old hole-in-the-wall experience, this is it. The pizza is good, but they have plenty on their menu from morning til night.
