Description: At Big Al's we like to "keep it in Colorado" from the locally raised hormone free staff to the recycled and repurposed decor. Big Al's has taken what others were going to throw away and given it another chance! At your next visit, take a good look around you might just recognize something. Perhaps our 1953 Sear's cabinets, or ceiling diffusers that have been transformed into new light fixtures, and lumber repurposed into table tops, both from the Steele's Market Deconstruction. Salvaged stair balusters and old fence boards were given a new life as they wrap the check out counter and columns. Old light fixtures from a Denver hotel add character to the dining area. We are keeping history alive one piece at a time.

“Awesome burgers!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 8, 2014 via mobile

Fast, delicious and great atmosphere. Just off the main strip. Regular and Truffle fries were good.
Local art work on display which was really cool.

“Family loves the 60/40 burger, but the veggie guac is darn good too!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 16, 2014

Order then find a seat, they'll bring you your deliciousness on a tray. This place is always busy and has the kookiest artwork on the walls. Full House character portraits, um, ok.

The fries are perfect, the burgers are good, but I can't believe the veggie burger. How do they keep that patty together and tasty? They won't tell.

“Looking for a burger? 60/40”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 15, 2014

So this is a burger joint! It's not fancy, there are no servers, you order at the bar, and it is great! Don't expect more than a burger joint, and you will be very happy! The 60/40 is 60% beef 40% bacon! Do yourself a favor and order one!

“Great Burgers and dogs”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2014 via mobile

Eat a 60/40 burger, which is 60% beef and 40% bacon. Excellent flavor, fresh cooked, and great fries. Hot dogs have a nice snap which you'd expect with grilled buns. I would recommend stopping by there.

“Outlandishly Good”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 7, 2014

I had a fantastic burger here yesterday. I'm not a huge meat eater, but the occasional burger craving usually does me in. I had an amazing cheeseburger combo here and it is worth going back for. I ordered it standard, as it comes. Includes really great shoestring fries and beverage. Although the line was longish, it moved very quickly and I was surprised how fast the food came out. Very good burger spot!
