We had Yak burgers and it was one of the best burgers I've ever had. The waitress told us that the Yak was locally grown and I would later find that Yak is actually very difficult to find. I'm glad I got the opportunity to eat it. The restaurant is quite clean and a relaxed environment with a bar.

Every time I drive through Ridgeway I try and stop here for lunch. I haven't tried anything else but their burgers so I can't comment on that. They make a great Patty Melt and sweet potato fries and I love the outside patio.

Not the best but it was a pretty good burger with a reasonable size patty and fresh lettuce, tomato, lettuce and onions. The french fries were very good as well. Side salads also were fresh and the blue cheese dressing was very good. Would stop again. Also, full breakfast, homemade bakery goods, pizza, appetizers, grilled chicken & fish.

The food here was excellent. No frills, but it was inexpensive, a rarity to find in this neck of the woods. The burger was cooked just right, the sweet potato fries were perfection. We were lucky enough to get there on Burger Night on Monday, where the prices were lowered significantly, and 2 of us ate for under $20. We... More

Maybe it was bad timing, but we've had some "unhappy meals" here. The food is ordinary American fare, in a roadhouse kind of setting. The best thing to do is eat on the deck during the day, and watch the reconstruction of Hwy 62 being done.

While visiting Ridgway and the farmers market located on the square, we popped into the restaurant for a quick bite. The pizza was great as well as their burgers. Very friendly staff. I would definitely recommend it!

We ate here b/c True Grit was closed for the week and I'll say that 520 Burgers was decent for dinner and I hear that they are good for breakfast but we didn't get up that early. Had a burger that didn't have a ton of flavor but it was pretty good. The Onion Rings made the entire meal. They... More

We got into town a bit early for dinner and our regular places were still closed. As we walked, my wife, the vegetarian, suggested we stop at 520 Burger. (Strange?) There's only 9 tables or so and a bar, and we got the last table. She made a good choice of restaurants - we were both happy with our plates.... More

And all were looking for something different. I'm not a burger fan, but this night it sounded good because the holidays offer other meals. The burger was fresh meat, cooked to order, with delicious toppings. Plenty of food for the reasonable price. Service was a bit slow, but I believe they under estimated the crowd at this time of year.

Stopped for lunch on way to Telluride Airport. Had a cheesesteak sandwich. It was really tasty. Not much time to stay and chat with the hostess/waitress. Clean place, good food.
