Fresh burgers made to order & only a short wait. The self-order on the burger wrapper was unique & very handy. Variety of sauces to add to your burgers, with some excellent house-made flavors. Stumbled upon this place with a clue from a friend. Outdoor seating with 'views' of Coor's Brewery across the road. It's now our favorite place in... More

Burgers made with fresh ingredients. Favorite place for a burger in Golden. Staff is very friendly. Everyone I've taken to the restaurant has loved it.

This is an unpretentious spot, across the street from Coor's brewery. The staff are always friendly. Each order is individually prepared, and served promptly. I especially like the quinoa burger--a great find in a burger place, and far more tasty than other quinoa burgers I"ve had.

Visiting son in Denver & decided to have lunch in Golden. Weather was perfect for outdoor meal. Three of us had burgers & they were fresh & delicious. Loved the self-serve ordering on a 'burger wrapper' where you can select type of sandwich (burger,chicken, etc), cheese, & other toppings. I had a grilled chicken sandwich with grilled onions which was... More

The ordering process is confusing but once you've been through the process a few times it gets easier. The hamburgers are hand formed and I believe they are fresh, never frozen which I believe lends to the really good taste. I also believe that not with standing the popularity of the product, their business would do a bunch better if... More

The atmosphere is cool and modern, yet rustic and simple. The burgers are very good. I would like them to make home cut fries. That would bring me back over and over again. They offer Mexican coke in a bottle. You jot down your order on a simple piece of paper before you walk up and there are not a... More

Nothing fancy, just burgers and hotdogs, but some of the best hand formed burgers I've had in a while. Limited seating inside, place is smallish so don't have a large meeting... eat and move along.

Wanted to eat here over the 4th of July weekend but they didn't open back up until Wed! Well we went and ordered our unique creations. The burgers are like a good home made burger. Juicy, tasty and made to order. You can customize your burger to your hearts content. The fries and onion rings where good too. Ate outside... More

The food is amazing the burgers are delicious and the hot dogs are good quality. We split a small fry between 4 people and we... More
