Everyone loves a good burger (even the vegetarians have the Keenan and Kel movie), but when it comes time for folks who write about good burgers in Denver to name the best, the same names tend to come up again and again. But Denver has plenty more under-the-radar beefy goodness out there that's worthy of your ravenous consumption. Here are eight examples that you won't find on the "best burgers" list from Eater. Or Westword. Or even Thrillist!
Blackened Bacon Burger
Falling Rock Taphouse, LoDo
The Blackened Bacon Burger may look fairly conventional, but the half-pound patty is seasoned with a spicy cajun rub that imparts some serious flavor before it's topped with bacon, cheddar, lettuce, tomato, red onion, and a cajun mayo. It's a bit messy, but the flavor combo is well worth a few destroyed napkins. Bonus: there're more than 75 beers at your disposal to pair with it.
