Interstate Kitchen & Bar Ratings and Reviews
This was my second visit to Interstate. I was very impressed with the service, price, ambience and the food the first time, I thought it would be a good location for another get together. I was not disappointed. Everything was terrific and my companions, who are not from this part of town, enjoyed the entire atmosphere, especially the beer. Interstate is a great place for any occasion. I will definitely return and recommend this restaurant to anyone coming to or in the area.
Husband and I were just passing thru the area and starving so we popped into our phones, the best place for a late lunch. So glad we were in the right place as Interstate was a definite gem. Taylor recommended the chicken salad and burger, was so spot on. Great food, wonderful service and price is right. We will definitely be back. Oh, and the fries were great too; crispy crunchy. And I believe those weren't even the shoe string fries. So the shoe string fries must be out of this world. THat's on our list for our next visit!
We love Interstate! Such a funky place and wonderful service. The food is fabulous and plentiful. The French Toast with banana creme brulee is my favorite. My adult son polished off the Sportsman with 3 different breakfast meats. The cinnamon crumb coffee cake appetizer comes warm and sweet.
We have eaten here before and thought the food was good. This time around was not as good. First off, I made reservations on their website (supported by OpenTable) and they never credited us with our points. Thankfully OpenTable helped us out. Second, it was not busy at all but they gave us (two women) a small table next to lots of traffic when there was plenty of other nicer tables available. The service was good and quick. I had the roast beef sandwich which was pretty bland and the roast beef was very fatty. My partner had the grilled cheese and tomato soup and both were very bland.
Breakfast of Champions! What a grand brunch. Eggs with 3 meats. French toast with bruleed bananas. Enough to satisfy the hungriest patron. And everything is seasoned so well. The homemade sausage is the best ever. Nice folks. Funky spot. Can't wait to go back!
Had two frites - ribeye and pork- a burger and a blt sandwich. Two apps- spinach/artichoke dip and popcorn. The food was excellent. Perfectly cooked. Teens thought it was a cool place. Great upscale diner experience, and great value! Only negative was no GF bread options.
Had the ribeye and monkfish, spoonbread and the leek soup. Soup was a very ugly brownish color and was not very tasty. Ribeye was big with potatoes, arugula and blue cheese. Fish on greens was enjoyed. We were interested in a couple of desserts but decided to skip it. Slow to bus tables when some folks were not busy, standing around.
Four of us drove from Colorado Springs to Denver to attend a theater performance at Buntport and Interstate Kitchen is just around the corner! All four of us had different entrees and we enjoyed them all! I especially liked the Clam Chowder--full of clams and very thick and tasty! Sandwiches are huge and fries are plentiful. The two gals with sandwiches, took "to go boxes". Very casual atmosphere and easy to talk at the table.
This was my 5th or 6th time dining at this restaurant. I have only been for brunch. The food is very good - and consistent. The menu hasn't changed in over a year - it would be nice to see a few different offerings - or maybe a special on Sundays. The Bloody Mary selection is great - and a good value. I will be back, just hoping for a few more menu options next time.
We enjoyed ourselves so much! the biscuits and gravy and the other breakfasts were fabulous. Everything tasted great. Yummy eggs. Yummy bloody marys. Our server, Jason, was super efficient and kind. He took great care of us. I loved the décor. The bathrooms were clean and modern, roomy and .... best bathrooms!
Interstate has an imaginative menu of comfort foods that are reasonably priced. How many places have $17 sea bass dinners with succotash and butter beans? How many have Genesee Cream Ale on tap for $3?
It's a place that's at once buzzy and relaxing. Enjoy some deviled eggs while you watch the passing parade of Santa Fe drive denizens.
We were going to First Friday on Santa Fe and wanted to go early to find parking and get something to eat. Interstate Kitchen was the perfect place to start. We had reservations and were seated immediately. The restaurant was full with a lively crowd around the bar. The food was outstanding and very reasonably priced. Great value! Loved the deviled eggs and spoon bread for appetizer. Great salmon salad. But my favorite part was the Orange Zuccini Cake. OMG... so delicious! I have a serious sweet tooth and this cake hit the mark. Finally, our waitress Amber was great. She knew everything about the menu and all of her recommendations were spot on. Already made a reservation for another night.
Unfortunately the server was having a difficult night so when we came in, the bar tender tried to move us to the bar. We needed seats with backs due to a physical injury (though we didn't share this with the bartender) and so we requested the table that we reserved through Open Table. The bartender seemed a bit overwhelmed also and so didn't have the great customer service and came off as pretty rude.
The server was much nicer and though there were only two other tables - she was overwhelmed and it took forever to be served or checked up on and the server repeatedly forgot drink orders etc.
The food was great. And I liked the vibe. But would not recommend.
Went with a French friend, and she enjoyed its unique food offerings and value. We all (boyfriend, French friend, and I) had salads and they were filling and tasty. I had the smoked salmon, she had the wedge and he had the shrimp. Very satisfying.
The wine by the glass is limited and only air, but everything else was spot on. Great place to go before First Friday Art Walk.
Interstate Kitchen & Bar had a great ambience. Cozy, comfortable & quiet. Great atmosphere for a romantic dinner or a small group of friends. Drink specials were creative and the wait staff were friendly and informative about the menu offerings.
We will be back soon as there were other items on the menu we want to try!
Only negative We could find was that the French fries, although hot and tasty, were much too salty. Otherwise, always pleased with Interstate.
I've always come on Santa Fe First Friday nights, as I perform at Benjy Dobrin Studios and it is convenient and the food is always good, as is the service.
