Wonderful

We loved everything we tried. The unique burgers, the soups, the onion rings and every sauce was amazing. Empire is a must in Breckenridge.

One of Breck’s most happening places. Off Main St. across from the base of Peak 9. Great burger and bar choice on Main Street. Always a wait at dinner time and crowded inside. Usually have to wait outside for a table, even in the winter. Smaller restaurant with large bar area, but kid friendly. Burger menu is extensive but there... More

Having driven up from Denver we were looking for something easy and quick. Empire hit the spot. We were directed straight to a table, and had the menu explained to us. Also, received some good recommendations on beers. The burgers were as they should be, tasty, well cooked with no pretension. And washed down by a good pale ale. This... More

Amazing local fresh ground in house burgers! Had the green chili, fresh, melted pepper jack, and soft bun. Awesome chips and queso. Wife had the bacon guacamole burger and it was off the wall great! House cut fries, and 16 sauces to choose from. Tried the curry catchup and Siracha mayo - incredible! If u want affordable gourmet burgers and... More

We waited only 20 minutes on a busy Saturday night at Empire and it was worth the wait. The food wasn't fancy but delicious! We started with the zucchini chips and mango chutney at our server's recommendation. Our group had a turkey burger, a hamburger, a buffalo burger and our vegan enjoyed one of the best veggie burgers she's ever... More

My husband and I visited Empire after a morning on the slopes. We were lucky, as we were able to find seats at the bar without waiting (it grew quite busy after we were seated). I thought that the drink menu was great- I enjoyed trying a twist on an old fashioned with blackberries. My husband appreciated that PBR was... More

When the line is not out the door, this is a decent place to get some food. The burgers are burgers. They wont blow your mind or shatter your world but they will taste decent and fill you up. The onion rings are your basic industry standard while the fries are above average. Tip: a basket is enough for 3-4... More

we went in a few days ago and it was filled with dinners. They told us it would be a 30 minute wait. If it was that long it flew by. The restaurant is a bit loud, but has good vibes. I recognized one waitress from last year. Our waitress was very nice and attentive. The food is delivered pretty... More

Restaurants in Breckenridge are a dime a dozen. This last trip we FINALLY found a go-to place. After several average meals, Empire Burger proved it's reputation. The place was packed at 6:30. We had to wait 40 minutes for a table. It was worth the wait. Excellent burgers and appetizers. It's not a fancy place but it is fun and... More
