Good service and a great atmosphere. The space is large and there are plenty of tables. The other reviews who say the place is cramped did not mention that they visited during the holidays (busiest time of year so obviously every restaurant in a ski town will be packed) The sauces have a great variety, I would recommend the mango...

Been here a couple of times, really good burgers and fries. As with most restaurants in Breck there is usually a bit of a wait but it is worth it. You won't be disappointed. Nuff said!

Good burgers, good price point. Chaotically busy during the holiday period. Waiter was super quick with the bill but to be expected in peak times

The location is great, right on the strip in Breckenridge. The space inside is cramped. If you are going with more than 4, I would definitely call ahead to get an idea of how busy it is. My wife and I went for a late lunch though, and it wasn't terribly crowded. I got the regular cheeseburger and my wife... More

So this was our late night meal. After 9 and server did not rush us nor did we feel chastised for eating late. Dining room is small and chilly but not cramped. Food was GOOD! I had a burger with provolone and egg (needed the protein). He had a BLT. Loved mine and his only complaint was too much bacon!?!?... More

I'm not sure why the burger is so good. I'm happy we went there again. We are yearly visitors to this town and we seem to go there every visit. It's worth the wait. It's atmosphere is fun and lively. They may want to add more beer on tap and some more space. Affordable, delicious meal out.

Good burgers. Great onion rings. Average fries and fish tacos. Very crowded and nowhere to stand indoors while waiting. Has lots of energy and good table service.

We were pleasantly surprised without burgers! Massive and insanely delicious! We ordered to go but the bartender was very welcoming and accommodating while we waited for our meal. Wish we went earlier on in our trip so we could of gone more!

The restaurant was rammed with no waiting area so people were just loitering around people already seated to stay in from the cold. The burgers weren't great considering their name. And was not a fan of the huge eating bar where you sit next to or opposite strangers while eating.

I went to Empire to simply grab take out for my boyfriend and I. It was my first experience there and I loved it. It was super fast service and pricing was reasonable. I order a burger with fries each and battered mushrooms. Much to my surprise, each entree comes with dip! I was realllly excited for this as I... More
