About
We are a full service, full bar gourmet burger restaurant that serves the finest, chef-crafted burgers, salads, appetizers & sides made from local, fresh, all-natural ingredients. Our burgers are made from Colorado beef, never treated with hormones or antibiotics, & we source as much of our produce as possible from local and regional farms. We make many of the toppings for our burgers in-house, from our homemade American cheese, all of our sauces and ketchup, to our house-made buns baked fresh daily by our own baker. You can’t beat the quality & flavors of our food. We have twelve Colorado beers on tap daily. We also love ice cream, so we created 5280 Ice Cream, the creamery next to 5280 Burger

I was a little reticent to go here because of all the great feedback that I'd read. But I will tell you that this place exceeded my expectations. Do yourself a favor and get the 5280 burger. Wagyu beef big old onion rings and homemade...steak sauce. This was a top 10 all time burger for me.More

Everything we had here was amazing. The burgers, fries, drinks and service were superb. If ever in Denver again, I would come here again. I've been craving it since I left over two weeks ago. Definitely recommend 5280 Burger Bar!!!

Great staff and service here and the food is delicious! They have a back room you can get for a group and it is quiet so you can visit! The staff made it all work and we so enjoyed the food! Everyone had burgers are...salads and they were all tasty! Kudos to the staff!More

I was impressed with the burgers at this restaurant. As somewhat of a Burger Junkie that goes to eat burgers in every city I go to, I enjoyed my experience here. However, not enough to feel like I have to go back. It didn't have...the "wow" factor or anything special - was just a good burger.More

My son loves to try burgers from different places. He said the Perfect Burger was the best burger he has ever had. We all ordered something different and everyone loved it. Three of the four in our party had a burger and I had the...taco salad with chicken. All very good. We will definitely return if in Denver again.More

I was in the mood for a substantial lunch & I was not disappointed! (Well maybe a little b/c I asked for a medium cook on the meat & it was medium rare & the salad was a little wimpy.) The burger, however, was seasoned...perfectly & my adult shake, an oreo “shake-tini”, was de-licious! Service was great. I’ll go back.More

I had been here before while traveling to Denver, and had a great experience with the typical hamburgers and ice cream from their menu. The next time that I was in Denver, it was for a conference, and I was in charge of putting on...a big party during the conference. The team there was fantastic to work with, and the food was great! Our guests were treated so well by their staff... we couldn't have been more pleased. Would definitely recommend.More

Great burgers. Juicy and very tasty. There are quite a few options and you can also substitute with out an issue. You order fries of onion rings separately. We shared a large fry and onion ring plate and it was too much for us to...finish. The onion rings are very think/large so if you don't like the taste of cooked onions it might not be for you but my friend loved them. Fries were not crispy but were very tasty. The service was excellent. We got there at 6pm on a Friday in February and we had to wait about 15 minutes. But when we left at about 7 there was no waiting. I would definitely go again.More

The restaurant was walking distance from our hotel. We ordered nachos, cheeseburger rolls, queso fries and wings. Average food and average service.

Quick shout out to Jason for being the only good server at this restaurant. His kindness and good service was the only thing that kept us from walking out. The hostess was beyond rude and claimed that she “forgot to seat us” after waiting for...30+ minutes with a half-empty restaurant. Keep in mind this is after she rolled her eyes when taking down our names and numbers to add to the wait list. While waiting at the bar, I was able to enjoy a drink. But only one as the bartender completely ignored us as well. Had to walk around the bar and flag down the bartender just to pay for our drinks.. The food was pretty good, but the horrible service was enough to make me never want to come back. Overall disappointing and wouldn’t recommend unless you have HOURS to killMore

After being thoroughly disappointed and walking out of Hard Rock around the corner my wife and I decided to give 5280 Burger Bar a try. We were absolutely impressed with the service, the food, and the atmosphere. Ashley was phenomenal and made sure we were...taken care of from the moment we sat down to the second we left. I ordered The Boss Hog and my wife ordered the Strawberry Fields salad with chicken. Both dishes were very good. My burger was in my top 3 best burgers I’ve had. I would definitely eat here again if I make it back to Denver.More

I saw the menu online and wanted to try their lobster roll and ice cream, although the burgers looked wonderful. I went for ice cream my first visit, had the toasted marshmallow. Then I went a second time and had the Connecticut lobster roll, truffle...fries, and birthday cake ice cream. The gentleman serving me was so nice and helpful. I actually enjoyed visiting with him along with the delicious food. I saw some of the burgers being delivered and omg, they looked fantastic.More

Hi Amy! We have quite a few gluten-free friendly options including our "wrap" and we can also lettuce wrap any of our burgers. We also use a separate fryer for folks who have an intolerance. Hope to see you soon!
