“Colorado’s 23 Best Burgers”
Thrillist, February 18th, 2015, Ruth Tobias
The greasy ones and the gourmet ones. The sentimental favorites and the splashy upstarts. The iconic shoo-ins and the controversial long shots. We considered them all in the course of our burger research, called on experts statewide, stuffed our faces until they bled — and finally narrowed the list down to 23. Here they are: the Colorado burgers to beat.
What you’re getting: Uh… a Larkburger?
Of course, there are approximately a zillion locations now, but the flagship — not far from Larkspur in Vail, where Chef-Owner Thomas Salamunovich created the prototype — still has that new-brand smell, that sparkle from back when it was still a local’s secret. Of course, it also still has that archetypal black Angus burger, the one that looks exactly like a fast-food ad — only better, because it’s IRL, and it’s dressed in a creamy, house-made lemon-Dijon sauce, and no fast-food franchise offers happy-hour deals on Colorado craft beer.
