A place that's all about eating, drinking and sports. – In Short
An "eatertainment" venue like the Hard Rock Cafe, The Zone boasts 23,000 square feet of sports-themed fun, including 150 TVs and dozens of interactive games. The menu features a fine array of burgers and fried appetizers, in addition to planked salmon and chicken and broccoli with angel hair pasta. The premier dish on the menu is the Sudden Death Brownie, with walnuts, butterscotch, chocolate chips, ice cream, Oreos, caramel, hot fudge and whipped cream.
A must for any sports fan! – Obviously good for watching the big games but a lot less crowded and less expensive during lunch and weekdays. The kids (and I) enjoy playing the games and you can get twice as many points for the same price if you go during their happy hour.
Not too bad....if you got money. – A fun place but too pricey on ...EVERYTHING! Lets go to LODO for better sport bars with much much cheaper price.
ESPN Zoink – This place does for sports bars what disco did for music. Overpriced, overhyped, it is definitely not a place to go watch a game. There are plenty other places downtown that are cheaper and better for watching the game.
sports, games, scenery... – I have no idea what the below "not recommendeds" are all about but those are as far from the truth as you can possibly get. I've been going to ESPN Zone since it opened in '01 and I have not been disappointed once. Was there with a friend and her two kids, no problems. Been there with a few of my underage friends, and no problems either. the Staff is awesome, food is great and it's one of the best places to watch the game. The Sports Arena is always a lot of fun. I especially like the miniature bowling alley. Sure it's a bit expensive, but it's worth it.
If You Like Thugs........ – My wife and five kids were recently enjoying a night here, when the management stepped up and showed their distaste for children, rudeness and lack of intelligence in problem resolution. The drinks are very expensive. The service is very poor. The games are not a bargain needless to say. Mty family has never been treated this horribly anywhere or at anytime than at this unfriendly dump. I suggest D&B's or Red & Jerry's before spending a dime at this kid hating hole.
don't bother – the food and drinks are overpriced, its loud and the service is horrible
Great food, fun & service - Honest! – Totally fun, enjoyable experience all around. My girlfriend loved her apple walnut blue cheese salad (HUGE) and my ribs were tremendous. Service was top notch...right pace, really friendly but not too fake and in your face. Squeezed in some fun on the racing games before we had to run to our movie. Will definitely be back.
Excellent with some cons – ESPN Zone provides a good atmosphere to watch and holler for your sports teams. Staff was plenty helpful and friendly. My only complaint was it cost my buddy and I $25 for two beer and 15 hot wings. That is like $5 per beer, and a $1 per hot wing.
The Tickets Are Cheaper! – I've been in this thing twice, the food is very limited, the prices are the highest in Denver bar none, and it generally is cheaper actually going to the game.
Add paying for parking in the Tabor center, and I'm not going back.
