2. Juicy Burgers & Dogs 6830 S Yosemite St, Centennial, CO 80112

Other than its bright apple-red chairs, this simply decorated Centennial burger spot is known for its above-average chargrilled beef patties, assembly cleanly into ten classic burger options. If you're coming in with an especially large appetite, the restaurant also offers a generous menu of free burger toppings including chili, crispy fried onions, and blue cheese that will let you construct your own juicy, supersize meal.

3. The Lobby 2191 Arapahoe St, Denver, CO 80205 (Five Points)

Diners at The Lobby know better than to take themselves too seriously, and it’s not just their Bloody Marys talking. The whimsical Denver restaurant puts a premium on fun, and, ergo, offers brunch all week long. The endearingly irreverent menu cuts right to the chase: it offers items that are “Fried,” “Fresh,” “Stewed,” “Loaded,” “Blazed,” and “Smashed,” often lean savory, like the Challah at Ya Boy with challah, bacon, fried egg, tomato, cheddar, almond pesto, and breakfast tots, or the Wake ‘N’ Bacon, which wraps a messy pile of hash browns, cheddar, pico de gallo, and eggs in greasy, salty bacon all sitting meekly beneath jalapeno cream and cilantro. The Lobby’s libations are robust and tasty -- opt for the Whiskey Hickey, which blends Woodford Reserve with blood orange puree, basil, and agave nectar.
