Rosie’s Diner – Aurora

Rosie’s Diner

After my hike at Cherry Creek State Park I decided it was time for some lunch. There are plenty of options in the area but for me I was in the mood for some good old diner food and what I found was a classic diner, Rosie’s Diner.

Rosie’s has the classic look and feel like you are climbing back in time to the 1950’s.

Rosie's Diner is a single story chrome and silver diner designed to look like an old rail car or classic diner.

It isn’t just the outside with the classic aesthetic, the inside is adorned with classic photos and memorabilia and my favorite part, the miniature juke box at every table.

The Food

All the look and feels are fine but the important part is the food! A classic diner calls for a crazy meal but with an enormous menu it was tough to narrow down my options. I decided to start with a side salad. It was cool, crisp and refreshing. The veggies were all crisp and fresh and it was really good.

For the real classic feel I went with the most classic meal I could think of. The meatloaf! The meatloaf came with mashed potato’s that were all covered in that good brown gravy. I also picked the buttered corn.

The meatloaf was three good sized pieces. There were big chunks of what tasted like onions and it was really good. It also had a good consistency, where it was solid without being stiff but also didn’t fall apart. The mashed potato’s were just chunky enough for my liking and good mixed with the gravy.

The buttered corn was butter and corn and that combination is about as good as it gets!

Rosie’s have a huge menu and as I was already full from this meal the waiter told me that they were known for their shakes. I just couldn’t eat any more so I had to pass on the shake this time but it is a cool place and I will probably be back. If you are looking for a fun meal in the Aurora area, give Rosie’s a shot.
