Top 10 Burgers in Denver: H Burger Co’s “H Burger”

H Burger Co’s “H Burger”

Location: Downtown

Price:  $11

The Skinny: H Burger opened 11am Feb 13th, and by noon, we were there.  Who could resist the promising combination of high end burgers, chicness of Jet owner Pete Plum, and uber-creativity of mad food scientist, Ian Kleinman?

True to form, Kleinman’s stamp on the menu is immediately apparent: liquid nitrogen milk shakes , below freezing beer, and little creative nuances here and there.

We ordered the milkshakes, which, due to the liquid nitrogen, start out as ice cream, and slowly melt into a shake during your stay.  Very good indeed.  For the burger, we got the H Burger – Angus Beef, green chili, smoked cheddar, sweet bacon, and a side of secret sauce.  A few bites in, 2 things stick out:
1.  Wow…lots of flavor.
2.  Sweet pleasant heat

If there was one flaw with the burger, its that the accompanying components are so compelling they distract a little from the meat.  The spice from the green chili and bacon is wonderfully present but not overpowering, and the smoky cheddar does well standing up for itself.  I asked Kleinman about the choice to use smoked cheddar with the chili as opposed to the traditional white cheddar or jack –  his response was that he wanted to make it unique – a “Colorado” burger (and screw you, New Mexico).  The meat, in comparison, was a little ordinary.  Mine was slightly overcooked, an error easily forgiven by the newness of the joint, but not at all bad by any stretch.

Good first visit and I’ll definitely be back.  Not sure if it’s elbowing “My Brothers Bar” out of top burger spot in Denver, but it’s in the top 10.

AGREE OR DISAGREE?

    I made it there as well. Not such a glowing endorsement from me. The shakes, cool, good wow factor, especially for the price, I can see this place as a cool dinner/date place for 20 year olds, due to the sorta retro decor and nitro factor, lol. But, don’t get the Eden burger, you can’t eat it like a burger, it literally falls apart and it wasn’t just mine. In fact our server came by to ask how things were and saw me trying to pick at my burger with a fork and offered to get me something else. Said that they were having issues with the texture and she was going to suggest they remove it from the menu for a short time, as the table next to us had sent theirs back a few minutes ago as well and the burger that followed it (also an Eden)had the same issues. It literally crumbles into a burger mush in your hands, quite un-appetizing. Unfortunately by then, we had to go and I’d sucked down my entire shake so was full. I do realize they are on opening week, but I was futher disappointed that I had to ask for it to be taken off the bill. Chatted with the folks at the next table on the way out (same ones that sent both their Eden burgers back) and we all agreed, the taste might be there, but to have to try to piece a burger together with a fork, just isn’t going to make it in a burger bar. I think I’ll give them a month and try it again. Atmosphere is hip and a bit funky, but the need to iron out some fundamental menu/recipe kinks.
