Top 10 Fast Food Burger Joints in Denver

Denver, before it became the boutique foodie paradise we know and love, earned itself a reputation as a fast food town. Fitting, as Denver is the birthplace of Village Inn, Quiznos, Qdoba, Chipotle, Boston Market, Noodles & Co., and Einstein Bros. Bagels, among others.

Instead of turning our back on this belly-busting history, we’d like to embrace it by sharing with you our Top Ten Fast Food Burger Joints in the Denver area, complete with accompanying menu favorites. Diets be damned, these burgers are GOOD. 

(FYI – restaurants in bold are Colorado Natives. Also, not all restaurants sport a traditional drive-thru, but their menu had to be burger-based in order to be considered.)

Top 10 Fast Food Burger Joints in Denver

(In no particular order)

  1. smashburger_400_01Smashburger (Bacon Cheeseburger with a fried egg addition and rosemary garlic Smashfries. Wanna kiss it.)

  2. Freddy’s Frozen Custard & Steakburgers (The California Style Burger with a side of skinny fries curbs our longing for In-and-Out better than any other chain available.)
  3. Crave (Home of the Luther - bacon, cheddar, egg and onion with 2 Krispy Kremes as the bun. Yup. Also the brownie milkshake and gravy fries don’t suck.)
  4. Good Times Burgers & Frozen Custard (Humanely raised Meyer beef on the Mushroom Swiss Burger, Wild Fries, and a side of that pinkish delight, Fry Sauce. Side note – they serve breakfast burritos with Hatch Valley green chili, and their new all-natural chicken menu fills the void left by the bigoted chicken chain that shall not be named.)
  5. Carl’s Junior (Of all the “Chain-with-a-capital-C” chains, their Super Bacon Six Dollar Cheeseburger kills the competition and fulfils that newly-legal Mary J craving. If going this route, we’d recommend pairing this burger with a shameful trip to the double arches for the perfect fries…)
  6. H Burger (For the self-proclaimed burger gourmand, let us recommend the locally-sourced Colorado Lamb Burger with fried artichokes and a Thomas Collins. So fancy…so right.)
  7. Juicy Burgers & Dogs (Cheddar Char Burger, onion rings, Haagen Dazs shake. It’s 4th of July in your mouth.)
  8. Park Burger (Order the Royale, sweet potato fries and a can of PBR. Or better yet, order two – we’re on our way.)
  9. Crown Burgers (We imagine this was how MacDonald’s began, if McDonald’s had made the brilliant choice of adding pastrami to a burger. A Royal Burger with steak fries and a Cherry Coke evokes another era.)
  10. Larkburger (Truffles! Get yer truffles here! Truffle Burger, side of Truffle and Parmesan Fries, Five Dollar Vanilla Shake to cut through the richness. Mmmmmm.)
