“One of the best sliders you'll ever eat...”
Reviewed July 30, 2013

...just don't ask for cheese. An original experience--you can smell the onions blocks away (and if you don't want to smell like onions, I recommend using the walk-up window). Otherwise, there are four stools right in front of the original 1920's grill. Buy a sack and have a great picnic. Consistently rated nationally, and featured in several documentaries about burger joints.

“Awesome burger joint!”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

The burgers are awesome-although they probably cost more than the cheap cardboard burgers at the fast food restaurants-they are well worth it!
If by chance you decide to go inside the restaurant, you will end up with the odor of Cozy burgers on your clothing until they get washed. They do have a walk-up window where you can place your order without actually coming into the restaurant.

“Great greasy burger joint”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

Anyone in town knows about the iconic Cozy Burger. In fact, if someone has walked into the small kitchen and sat at the counter and then subsequently walks by someone on the street, the stranger is likely to mutter "Cozy Burgers" under their breath. Why? The distinctive aroma that is Cozy Burgers! Best to get them at the outdoor window!

Cozy Burgers are quarter-sized burgers you buy by the dozen. They don't come with cheese, but they do come with a lot of onions, ketchup, mustard and onions on small buns. They are heaped into a paper bag of 6 burgers, and yes, they will stick together as you pull them out of the bag. They're more fun than they are tasty, and it's the experience that you'll be talking about. Very much worth a go to say you've eaten here while in town!

“Ok, but nothing special”
Reviewed July 27, 2013

We went here on a road trip through to Colorado. The burgers were ok, really just a local version of a Krystal or White Castle. My biggest complaint was that we waited for 45 minutes between waiting to order and waiting for our food. In all fairness it was a Saturday afternoon, so I don't know if this is typical for a wait time.

Heard from numerous people that I had to try the Cozy Inn and experience this legend...I did and was not disappointed in these little sliders!
