First visit for a burger and some Monday Night Football. Service was good and friendly-place was about 1/3 full at 6pm. Ordered the Popper "no pink" (beer battered cream cheese and jalapeños, lettuce, tomato, onion, chipotle mayo and avocado). Meat seemed a bit dry (perhaps you should assume "no pink" means very well and not medium). Nice flavor profile with... More

We walked in around 2 pm, one table of 3 people seated, the majority of tables not bussed. The floors dirty, the open kitchen clearly dirty. Staffers chatting. We promptly walked out.

Traveling through Colorado Springs and found this place. Burgers were excellent. Perfect amount of food as 5 hungry travelers all felt full without feeling stuffed. Burgers were light. Staff were excellent and multiple servers seemed to all be helping each other out all night. Broncos game was on and the place was busy. The only turnoff was the volume of... More

This is one of those places where it's tough to choose, because there are so many mouth-watering options. If you like your burgers with interesting things on them, this is the place to go. On two trips we've tasted four different burgers, with varying degrees of satisfaction. All were good, though two were excellent--I loved the Drunken Onion (caramelized onion,... More

There is no description that can accurately portray the taste of these burgers. Each is a one-of-a-kind masterpiece that is savored from the first bite to the last. I have eaten there several times and every time has been great. Although not fancy, the place is always clean and the waiters are always friendly. Light and lively, make sure you... More

If you like burgers, this is a great place! Certainly pricey as all these gourmet places seem to be, they have some creative options. Almost too creative, but they let you customize. A shake was tempting, but that would have been like two days worth of calories! Good quality.

Loved the unique flavors they offer! I liked that I could change the burger to grilled chicken. The green chili is especially fabulous! My husband ordered the Cubano & was shocked at the size! The pictures really don't do the hamburgers justice in how amazing they are! We will be looking for this chain in our future travels.

This place would get 5 stars if the front of the house was set up better. The poor hostess was writing the wait list, seating, and bussing tables. Not enough servers for this busy night and I can only image how the overworked kitchen staff feels. Great burgers, let's work on the details guys!

Fantastic once-in-a while food. My favourite is definitely the Sin City, the candied bacon is so yummm. Simply the best burger I have tasted anywhere, ever !

After reading reviews, we tried this restaurant. It was very good and quite filling. I had a cheeseburger and my husband tried the Sin City burger. We both really enjoyed our food. He also tried the truffle fries. He loved them, but I was not a fan. It's a bit pricey, but worth it for what you get. It was... More
