Top 10 Burgers in Denver: Larkburger’s Truffle Cheeseburger


Larkburger’s “Truffle Cheeseburger”

Location: DTC

Price:  $6.75

The Skinny: To start off with, I owe Larkburger a bit of an apology.  While I was reviewing the top100 dishes in Denver, this was on the list, and at the time I didn’t think it was anything special – said it was no better than a backyard burger at a neighbor’s house.  The review turned out to be one of my most unpopular, getting thumbs down from most.  Curious, I decided to try it again – this time in the newly opened Tech Center location.  Was I wrong?

Yes.  Dead wrong – It’s a slammin’ good burger.

There is a lot to like about Larkburger, apart from their delicious food.  They use fresh ingredients, they recycle, they’re good stewards of the land.  They even constructed the restaurant out of reclaimed trees, which sounds admirable and decent, even if I don’t quite know what it means.  But naturally all of this would be meaningless unless they put out a great burger, which indeed, they do.

On this occasion, the burger was outstanding.  And it comes down to one thing: truffle aioli.  Owners Adam Baker and Thomas Salamunovich modeled the restaurant after a love of truffles, and it’s never better expressed than in this sandwich.  The incredible, earthy sauce drips throughout the burger, uplifting everything from the bun, to the cheese, to the perfectly cooked patty.  The meat, incidentally, was the biggest difference from my last experience to this one.  This time it was juicy and memorable, much better than my neighbor’s version in their mythical backyard.

Keep an eye out for LarkBurger.  Adam, the owner – a good and down to earth guy – told me they’re opening a new spot in Ft Collins soon, and Denver after that.

    Sadly I was not impressed. Not sure if I was just too excited and my expectations were too high, but it did not do a thing for me. Ok, I guess to be fair, I should say I had the little burger which to me seemed like it would be hard to cook because there is not much “middle” there to be perfectly pink. It was dry and salty, and the onion and tomato were bigger than the bun and burger. The truffle parm fries….total let down. The shake….bueno….even if it was strawberry.

    pocket. How can property homeowners determined to promote their residence
    improve their probability of a fast and profitable sale inside the prevailing genuine property
    industry? Most significantly, the dwelling ought to face out from the
    gang and be a welcoming island in the sea of properties for sale.
