1. 5280 Burger Bar (500 16th St., Suite 160, Denver, CO 80202 and 4301 Main St., Westminster, CO 80031)
With so many mouth-watering options to choose from, ordering can be tough. Our suggestion: Order the "I can't decide" option,.
You'll get two signature burgers in jumbo-style sliders. I'd go with the Ring of Fire burger made with Angus beef, pepper jack cheese, sauteed habenero and serrano peppers, 5280 Chipotle mayo, and their famous Ring of Fire sauce. Or, the Mighty Mushroom would also be a good choice topped with sauteed seasonal mushrooms, swiss cheese. lettuce, and garlic aioli.
2. My Brother's Bar (2376 15th St., Denver, CO 80202)
This local favorite may be the oldest bar in Denver, but the burgers just never get old.
With classical music playing in the background, you will love their no-frills paper-wrapped burgers which come complete with a condiment caddy full of fixins. The crowd favorite is the Johnny Burger topped with three cheeses and grilled onions.
3. The Cherry Cricket (2461 E. 2nd Ave., Denver, CO 80206)

Get creative at The Cherry Cricket and create a delicious masterpiece. With toppings like peanut butter, green chile strips, corned beef, and grape jam, you're sure to create a one-of-a-kind burger that is sure to satisfy your cravings.
4. Hopdoddy Burger Bar (1747 Wynkoop St., Denver, CO 80202)
Their seasonal specials are pretty hard to beat (currently the Meatloaf Burger).

5. City Grille (321 E. Colfax Ave., Denver, CO 80203)
