America's Best Burger Cities 2012
No. 11 Denver
Being the most active calorie-burners in the nation, Denverites can afford to indulge in a good burger. For a hometown classic, go to The Cherry Cricket in the Cherry Creek neighborhood. Once a favorite among local garbage-truck drivers (in the 1940s, it was near the dump), the burger joint now offers a few creative toppings, such as peanut butter and pineapple. It’s also a fine place to see why Denver won the survey for microbrews: it has a “normal” and “fancy” beer list, including plenty of local Wynkoop on tap.
