Jus Cookin's

Simms St. & 8th Pl.
Lakewood, CO, 80401, United States
TEL: (303) 205-0123

Known for its traditional American comfort food, Jus Cookin’s is housed in a yellow farmhouse-style building with dormer windows and a wraparound porch. Family-owned since 1988, the restaurant has a homey vibe, with simple wooden furniture, a fireplace, and white walls hung with antique quilts and antique farm implements. The menu includes classics like the open-faced meatloaf sandwich; the secret-recipe chicken pot pie; and the signature fried chicken, which Food & Wine named some of the best in the nation. Almost everything is homemade, from the ranch dressing to the freshly baked dinner rolls and the ever-popular peach cobbler.

Insider Tip:

The entire menu is available to go, so if you prefer, you can order takeout and drive five minutes south to Union Square Park for a lakefront picnic.
