Week 3: What are your Top Favorite Burgers in Colorado?


  1. Marczyk fine foods – Only available on select fridays in the summer. They mix the trim from their dry age program in to a Niman Ranch patty. Bacon aioli? Good to go
  2. Next door kitchen – Classic burger done right. It’s my kids favorite and at $8 on the kids menu it’s a steal
  3. Sunday vinylThe pork burger is original and super juicy!
