Jus Cookin's

Simms St. & 8th Pl.
Lakewood , CO , United States
(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.

From the From the May 2008 Food & Wine Go List

Chef-owner Leonardo Jun Sakamoto reigns from the central sushi bar in this elegant but informal restaurant, one of Brazil’s best raw-fish spots. The <em>omakase</em> menu offers a thrilling mix of Japanese, French and Brazilian–inspired sushi preparations.

We loved: Tuna tartare with foie gras; oysters with ponzu sauce.
