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!


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 co...

awesome place!! 11/28/2010

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! more

Small Town Restaurant atmosphere 12/29/2009

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. Pros: Pizza more


Thank you Bonnie Brae Tavern! My dad and I love your restaurant! You always take good care of us. Between my dad and I we visit you five days a week! Keep up your great attitude, we have been loyal customers since 1975. Sincerely The Balnickes more

The most authentic restaurant in Denver 4/16/2008

\r 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 more

Favorite thin-crust pizza 10/16/2007

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. Pros: great pizza, unique atmosphere Cons: limited waiting area more

Great Food... and downright cheap 8/29/2007

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 The environment may be outdated...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. Pros: Great Pizza and Great Food more

Great pizza, everything else second 1/3/2007

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. Pros: Pizza. Cons: They haven't spruced this place up in 40 years. more


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. more

PizzaCritic 5/10/2006

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! more

Going downhill 5/18/2005

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! Pros: Dirt Cheap Cons: Food, Crazy-Eyed Server more

Weird but cool 4/24/2005

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. Pros: huge sodas, no wait, dated feel Cons: garlic bread, odd waitress more

Awesome Pizza 1/21/2005

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: Fun, Yummy, Easy Parking more

Great Place! 12/18/2003

Bonnie Brae is an awesome place to eat...they have great pizza and their thin crust is to die for! I'm from Michigan and have relatives in Denver. Everytime I go there i just have to eat at Bonnie Brae! Pros: Inexpensive, Atmosphere Cons: crowded for large, parties more

great pizza 8/7/2003

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. Pros: value, quality, old fashioned Cons: long waits, closed on mondays more

Bonnie Brae's is the best 11/1/2002

Hands down the best pizza I have ever had! One of my favorite pubs that I have ever been to. Pros: inexpensive, good food, lots of fun more

good non-spiritual food 10/19/2002

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. more
