“Good eats in Denver”
Reviewed July 23, 2014

We stopped off at the Sink after attending the college tour. The burgers are yummy - and huge so you can easily share. For an extra few bucks you can upgrade to grass fed beef. The onion rings and fries were yummy as well. It's a cool, college fave and apparently Robert Redford once worked here!

“Fun College Hang Out”
Reviewed July 21, 2014

We had lunch after a campus visit based on the DDD show.

The place is a typical college dump. It is in the basement of an old house. If you're over about 6'2", you may have to duck to miss the pipes hanging from the ceiling which is completely covered with graffiti.

My son and I had burgers which were great. Thick and juicy with the right amount of stuff on them. My other son tried the famous pizza. He felt that it had too much crust and too much cheese. He favors a lighter New York style of pizza. I tried a slice and it was good but heavy. Order less than you think you can eat.

Service was very chipper. Everyone was very friendly. I would go back if in Boulder.

“Good College Hangout that you can bring parents to”
Reviewed July 15, 2014

Met my nephew and his girlfriend here for a late lunch. Sat outside and never went inside so couldn't tell you much about that. Good beers, service was fine and the food was fine. Had some juicy (or greasy) burger that I couldn't finish cuz it was too hot out to eat. Price was okay.

“Good food, Friendly but slow service”
Reviewed July 2, 2014 via mobile

Stopped here after touring CU with our daughter. Waited a good 10 min. before we were acknowledged and put on the waiting list. Probably waited a total of 20 minutes despite plenty of tables. Service over all was slow but friendly. Food was very good. My husband and I both had the buffalo chicken wrap which was great and big (we could have split it) with the garlic broccoli (also ample and delicious). Our daughter has a BBQ bacon burger with fries which was perfectly cooked, nice and juicy, and plenty of food. Liked their homemade pickles, too. Fun and funky interior. Overall, delicious and fun.
