I think the single food item I crave the most is a delectable cheese burger. I have had plenty of vegetarian phases and red meat can even gross me out. When it comes down to it, however, a burger always brings me back in to the world of eating meat. I decided to put a list together of some of my favorite spots near campus to feed all of my burger cravings.
1. Park Burger
A Denver classic, Park Burger never fails to deliver delicious burgers. Their house burger sauce is insanely yummy and I cannot go there without ordering a basket of the parmesan truffle fries (pictured above). People know Park Burger is good. It’s a small restaurant that tends to have a wait. Be prepared for this!
2. Asbury Provisions
Asbury Provisions is certainly a hidden gem. Located near some of DU’s favorite spots, (think C & G and Border) this small restaurant and bar offers a select menu, including one of the best burgers I’ve ever eaten.

3. Smash Burger
Smash Burger delivers fast and high quality burgers for a relatively low price. Their burgers may not be at the same quality as some of the other more gourmet burger places nearby, but this chain offers affordable burgers in record time.
#spoontip: The Colorado burger with ranch and avocado is really incredible. 10/10 would recommend.
4. Bad Daddy’s Burger Bar
Last but definitely not least, is Bad Daddy’s Burger Bar. I am a huge fan. Huge. With locations in both Cherry Creek and Littleton, this restaurant is accessible and too good. While Park Burger is the go to place for most DU students, I think Bad Daddy’s rivals it in atmosphere and taste. Side note-they have amazing iced tea!
When it comes down to it there are plenty of burger options in Denver. These places are some of the best I’ve encountered so far. Check them out!
