I have gone to Racine's for about 20 years, used to be over on Speer, and I love it. The food has always been the best, and I love the ambiance of the new place and the parking garage is a plus, although I live close by and walk. The servers are a little lax, but that's true of most places now. They are however very friendly, and I never feel rushed. Racine's has always had great bakery items also. I almost always see people I know when I'm there; just one more plus for this old timer.

I grew up in Denver and have always ventured to this restaurant whenever I have the chance. I'm a NY Diner so I think it says a lot. The variety of food here is wide and I adore the restaurant's decor. The drinks are also very good and I love the central bar. I've always had great service here. It's also nice that they have a parking lot. I'm in love.

I just had brunch at Racines on Sunday and felt the atmosphere, service and food were very nice and enjoyable. We had a large group and even though they were very busy, the food came out hot, good and with excellent service. While this is not a fancy restaurant, they seem to serve quality food and gracious service. Our whole family enjoyed it very much.

So I have gone to Racines quite a few times during my various times living in denver.
Always the same. Great people watching. Fun atmosphere. Lousy service. Food is okay.
I don't understand what it is with service in Denver. Why it's so bad.
We ate a late lunch on Sunday. Got immediately transferred from one server to another. The first one's name I didn't get, the second ones was as forgettable as his attention to our table.
I had some coffee, didn't get any sugar on the table until after it was refilled. NEVER got a water refill. The server couldn't follow the most simple of instructions concerning the splitting the bill evenly between two cards. At a table next to us, a server sat a bartender and I am assuming a cook, both from Racines, and helped them hide their smoking. Seriously???
Lousy, lousy, lousy...
I have an idea. People in Denver who want to be servers. First of all, do something else. Second, if you can't do anything else - go spend a year or two in a big city like Chicago. Or anywhere in Cali or NY. And work as a server there. You might actually get an opportunity to understand what it is like to take care of the guest.
Because here in Denver, not all restaurants should hire burnouts, late night Diner servers and ski bums (dude, you ready to order yet or what...) as their staff.
Unfortunately I'll probably go back to Racines sooner than I'd like to.

Racine's is great! I went there after hearing about it from friends and reading the reviews. Now I feel like I want to go there for lunch every day! The patio is great, and they have umbrellas so it doesn't get too hot. The service is fast and friendly, and not overbearing. They have excellent coffee. The food is terrific. Great selection of sandwiches and burgers, as well as breakfast stuff. They have a limited ""late breakfast"" on the menu during the lunch hour also, and their sunday brunch features breakfast and lunch food. Highly recommend the bagel and lox platter (excellent) and the gouda/turkey croissant with cranberry sauce (not soggy and very fresh). They have a large parking garage with free parking - very convenient! Will definitely be back over and over.
