Loved my Irish Shake, adult style with alcohol. Burgers were amazing and variety was plentiful. Gluten free options were appreciated. Would definitely come again when I’m in Denver.

Great burgers, family friendly with a wide variety menu for everyone in your group. They take reservations so it was easy to get in with a large party! Tip: Don’t miss the brussel sprouts!
