The place is somewhat of a dump which makes it the best. The burgers are very good. Good service. Good people watching. Just lots of fun. We go here after week pretty consistently. Check it out. You will like it!

If you are new to Denver, or never been to this staple of North Cherry Creek, GO!. They have great food in a relaxed atmosphere that is completely disappearing from N. Cherry Creek with the invasion of all the yuppy restaurants. The Cricket has great food, drinks, pooltables, and a non-smoking eating area. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

PROS: Food, Atmosphere, People, Location
CONS: Can get VERY busy on the weekends

If you are a true Buuger lover, you will absolutely hate their burger. First of all it is a pre-formed patty, I mean like purchased in the hamburger shape. Second of all, there is no style to the condiments and bun. Plain old cheap hamburger.

The best hamburger that I have ever eaten. The restaurant is so packed that I have a hard time waiting to get in though.

The best burgers I've had in the area by far. Lots of options to customize, everything cooked to order, and great sides.
The Cherry Cricket is a full service bar with a surprisingly good selection of beers, both on tap and in bottles/cans. Prices on pints and pitchers are very reasonable, too.
Don't miss the Messy Nachos. They're an overlooked favorite and better than most from actualy specialty Mexican restaurants.
The only downside is the horrendous Cherry Creek parking system, but it's usually safe to park in the VI lot next door.

By far, the most overrated burger in town. I hadn't been there in 20 years until last week and now i remember why: it is the GREASIEST BURGER in town and greasy does NOT equal great to me. I had a grease kick-back all afternoon and not even the cute waitress could do anything about that in her wildest dreams!

This is simply the best bar and grille in Denver. Dozens of high-quality beer on tap, fabulous burgers and Mexican food, as well as a comfortable, friendly interesting vibe. I go there at least every other Friday night - as does most of South Denver. Crowded, but worth it.

They let you choose-your-own-burger-adventure! Pick your burger and pick from a variety of cool toppings. And then enjoy it, because you will! While you're at it, check out their bar - they have some interesting beers and ciders on tap and in bottles. This is not a place for kids though...smoke and stale beer.

over rated... a noisey neighborhood bar serving average food. A long time-with-standing alternative to the other "see and be seen" eateries in the Cherry Creek yuppyville area. A place to hang have a drink and grab a snack...

Great food. Always fresh salads and best burgers in town. However, last time I went, the waitress told us to sit in the next booth. The hostess threw a fit because apparently there was a wait. It would have been nice if the hostess and the waitress communicated to each other. The hostess threw such a stink, we all ended up leaving. I asked to speak to the manager and he could care less about the issue. Good food, but be prepared to be treated rudely.

I thought this was a great restaurant until the last time I went in and the guy checking IDs was rude and the hostess had a bad attitude. . .we didn't stay and probably won't be back, but in all fairness, the food is good, but not worth the attitude.

If I had been to all of the restaurants listed I might be able to assess who's the best, but I haven't, so all I could say is that I've eaten a LOT of burgers and this place is one of the best places I've been to. Does it stop with the food and alcohol? No, the menu/interior is creatively well done! This is what business should be about. This is the kind of business that I'd support.

Excellent burgers, probably the best in town of the thick and juicy ilk vs the thin patty type. Great tavern atmosphere; the service is friendlier than the usual beer joint waitstaff. Go for the for the fries; skip the rings. Excellent selection of beers.

You must order the big burger. The small burger is not as juicy or delicious. One order of french fries is enough for two people. I recommend the big burger. It's marvelous!!

Sure, it's a dive, but with food and service like this, who cares? Great big juicy burgers, tasty fries, andreasonable prices (especially for Cherry Creek area) is why this place is still in business after all of these years. I've been in Denver since 1978, and the burgers, atmosphere and service have not changed.

Survives on its own inertia. It retains its ambience without superficial trappings and not incidentally serves the best hamburgers in or out of town. Well worth a long drive across town through miserable traffic for lunch.

The Cherry Cricket is the only place in town to get a burger. After a day of fishing, hiking or fixing your kitchen floor it is the only way to heal your wounds. The atmosphere is casual although sometimes loud and the beer selection is enviable. The burgers are always done just the way you like it. Med-Rare for me please with mushrooms and bacon. Mix in a half/half basket of fries and O-rings and you can just melt in your booth.

Nobody touches the Cherry Cricket for Burger Badness!! By far and away the class of the city for your burger binges. They're simple, nothing fancy, big and juicy...full of flavor. You wouldn' t know by looking at it, but CC rules the roost for ground beef delicacy!

Cherry Cricket is a good time. I came here to drink a few beers. I ended up ordering three plates of chicken nachos, some jalapeno poppers, cheese dip, and a burger. Even after all those appetizers, the burger was amazing. Cherry Cricket is the best burger joint in Denver. I should know, I've lived in Denver for 36 years.

This place has wonderful hamburgers. The menu is limited, and not very exciting. But if you are looking for a good, old-fashioned burger, you are in the right place. It can be noisy and jammed with beer-swigging college students. But that's okay. That's just the kind of place it is.

Being a Wis. Cheesehead at heart and enjoying my fair share of good old fashion tavern burgers - Cherry Cricket is like going back to the lake country pub and ordering an ice cold pint, a greasy burger and the most perfect "frings". No wonder so many true Irish souls flock there for St. Patty's day as well as for a Sunday burger to watch a game and share some laughs w/ friends. Although the Cricket changed management a few years back they stayed true to the original atmosphere and have lost no faithful patrons and even brought on a few new ones. Bring your appetite.

The Cherry Cricket has the best burger in all of Denver. Just the perfect amount of grease, cheese, garnishes...fries & rings & you're good to go!

Also, I visited once with two kids, although the CC does not offer a kid's menu, they catered to the 5 & 7-year-olds during the lunch rush. Nice touch.

The Cherry Cricket has great food and neat atmosphere. The memorabilia on the walls add a sort of college-esch appeal.

The food is outstanding and the wait staff is fast and friendly. Try the build-your-own burger with provolone and green chilis, it's awesome. The cheese fries are also really good. Word to the Wise: Come hungry because the portions are big and will satisify any appetite.

Best burger in Denver, hands down, but the retro, college-hangout feel includes no real barrier between the smoking and non-smoking sections. Be prepared for LOTS of cigarette smoke, no matter where you are sitting.

If you are a smoker looking for a place to just relax and light up while downing a beer and having a great burger, this is just your kind of place.

This place looks like a complete dive on the outside, so when you walk in the comfy decor and cheerful locals make you wonder if you indeed walked into a place with a tacky neon martini sign hanging over the door.
