Located at the eastern foot of the famous Rocky Mountains, there’s quite a lot to do in the city of Colorado Springs.
However, it’s a pretty chilly city for those not used to the elevation, which means that you’re going to want to look for great restaurants where you can fill up and warm up.
Interested in tasting the flavours that this Colorado city has to offer? Check out seven of the best burgers in Colorado Springs and start to eat your way through the Rocky Mountains.
Best Burgers In Colorado SpringsHow do these rankings work?
Gourmet cuisine meets All-American innovation at Crave Real Burgers. Offering up some of the most unique creations in the industry, it’s no wonder why locals consistently rank this place as having some of the best burgers in Colorado Springs.
They use ingredients such as coffee, peanut butter, and even doughnuts to whip up the tastiest and most creative burgers you’ll ever try. Our expert advice is to try all of the burgers on their menu, honestly.
And, save room for an Adult Shake at the end.
Healthy and homemade are the first two words that come to mind when you think about The Skirted Heifer. However, if we could add a third word in it would be spectacular.
It’s easy to see that the burgers here are made with care, and other people seem to think so too. Their namesake burger won the Gazette’s Best of the Springs award a few years back and the Food Network has recognised them as well.
Using grass-fed beef and super sharp cheddar cheese, the burger meat alone is to die for. Then, they sandwich it between garlic focaccia bread for buns. Wow.
At Bad Daddy’s Burger Bar you can order something called a Bacon Cheeseburger on Steriods. So, that pretty much sums up with this place is all about.
Other top-notch menu items include the Magic Mushroom Burger (which, fortunately, or unfortunately, doesn’t get you high) and the Fried Mozzarella Burger. To wash it all down, choose from one of the rotating regional beers they serve on tap.
Cooked-to-order California-style burgers are the speciality here at Drifter’s Hamburgers. The catch, though, and probably what makes their burgers so popular, is that they use local beef.
Local, Colorado beef just tastes different, especially if you’re from the state. That, along with the super In-N-Out vibes, work to make this place one of the best places to get a burger in Colorado Springs. Animal style fries anyone?
Here, the famous Bingo Burger is probably one of the biggest nods towards the state of Colorado and its culinary culture. Using local Pueblo chillies, they craft a mouth-watering burger that’s been a favourite amongst locals for years.
As if Pubelo chillies weren’t already delicious enough, they throw on pimento cheese, bacon, and chipotle ranch. Our pro tip? Order a cold Colorado beer to wash it all down with, and extra hand-cut fries.
You’d expect a place that markets themselves as a burger bar to do burgers right. And, Border Burger Bar definitely doesn’t disappoint. Their menu is full and so will you be after devouring one of their juicy burgers.
The Border Burger’s got some kick to it, so if you’re not totally adept at handling hot stuff, then opt for the All American Burger. Make sure to try their hand-breaded mozzarella sticks, too.
Any place that’s dedicated to staying environmentally-conscious is a place we want to check out.
Larkburger’s commitment to using sustainable ingredients and packaging is enough to warrant a visit, but once you’re there you’ll understand why we think they serve one of the best burgers in Colorado Springs.
They somehow manage to create complex bursts of flavour with little ingredients, and we’re not quite sure how they do it. Try the Truffle Burger and see for yourself.
