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.

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.

And, save room for an Adult Shake at the end.

2. The Skirted Heifer

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.

3. Bad Daddy’s Burger Bar

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.

4. Drifter’s Hamburgers

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?

5. Bingo Burger

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.

6. Border Burger Bar

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.

7. Smashburger

These freshly smashed 100% Certified Angus Beef burgers will leave you drooling for more. Served on butter-toasted artisan buns with real cheeses, freshly chopped produce, and robust sauces!

If you’re looking for a sweet treat, their milkshakes are made from Haagen Daz ice-cream!
