I always forget how close this place is to the office I work and that is a good thing. Otherwise I would probably eat lunch every day from here. Food is fantastic, every time I go I feel welcome and switch from speaking English to Spanish without getting any weird looks. Best Cuban restaurant in Colorado for me. See More

After living in Miami for 5 years then moving to Colorado, I loved and missed the cuban food. This is the best authentic Cuban food you can find. The flavors the dishes, environment all smells, taste ...and say Cuba 🇨🇺
Just love this place!

With my being a native Floridian and my husband being a native Puerto Rican (from the island), this brings little Havana right here to Denver Colorado! This food makes our mouths do a happy dance! We ...have NEVER found food this authentic anywhere....not even in Las Vegas when we lived there. We cannot recommend this place enough! This is easily one of the BEST restaurants in the Denver area. Give it a won't regret it! See More

This is the real deal. I am a Miami native, just moved to Colorado two and a half years ago. I ate lunch here yesterday and it was amazing. I felt like I was back in Miami. Sergio and his family make feel so welcome. Ironically we both grew up in Miami and attended rival high schools. It was fun reminiscing. I ordered the pan con bistec and my brother had the traditional Cuban sandwich. Both came with plantains, they were amazing! I wish I would have bought more to bring back to Summit County. I will definitely be visiting this restaurant when I'm down in Lakewood. See More

One of the worst ‘Cubano Sammiches’ I have ever had. The cheapest processed ham imaginable. You seriously buy your ‘Cuban’ bread across the parking lot at King Soopers?? Weak effort

Absolutely love this place. The good is incredibly good and the family that owns and runs it super nice and friendly. My recommendation for first visit is the house specialty - marinated pulled pork, ...rice and beans, and yuca. Each one is so delicious. See More

Growing up in Fort Lauderdale, you learn to appreciate really good Cuban food. Frijoles Colorado is some of the best Cuban food in the Denver area. If you haven't been to Frijoles, you are missing out.... One of the best hole in the walls, I could eat here everyday if they were open on Mondays. Love these guys, they make everyone feel like you are family. See More

Love the food and love the owners, always a fun, friendly place to eat. And the pastries are amazing - we always end up eating them BEFORE our meal because we just can't wait! :)

If you know what sofrito or amarillo is and you live in Colorado, then do yourself a favor, eat here and be happy.

Eating at frijoles is like going to your relatives house. Everyone is warm and inviting, the atmosphere is in matched by other resturants. My brother and I religiously eat in for their EL Cubano sa...ndwichs'. The guava and cheese pastries will change your life and leave you craving more. I will forever be a customer for these reasons.
