Top 10 Burgers in Denver: Bud’s Cafe and Bar’s “Double Cheeseburger”

Bud’s Café and Bar’s “Double Cheeseburger”

Location: Sedalia

The Skinny: This is Burger Purity.  No lettuce or tomato, no secret sauce, no fries.  It’s just you and the meat, cheese, & bun.  And it’s absolutely delicious.

Buds is exactly the kind of place you think it will be.  Exactly the kind of place you hope it will be.  Way out in the middle of nowhere Sedalia, past a few tumbleweeds and in between the railroad tracks, there it sits – like a place out of Mayberry.  I wouldn’t have been shocked to see a few rocking chairs out front, or at least a 6 string being picked.  No such luck on this occasion, but at least the inside was a satisfying scene: locals, beer, drab booths from decades ago, and 40+ year old waitresses.  Just the kind of spot that is guaranteed to serve good food.

The burger itself is simple and classic: Two patties of a proprietary blend of beef, melted cheese, and two perfectly steamed buns.  The buns deserve special recognition – they straddle the fine line between being sturdy enough to hold their shape, yet soft enough to melt into the burger in each bite.  It’s a greasy, burger purists dream.

    I could not agree more. It is the first “best” burger I had years a go with my dad before everyone knew about it…and certainly before you could even have a list of 10 fave burgers in Denver.

    I used to think the down side was that there were no fries, and now I just enjoy it for what it is – a damn great burger with chips.

  • jko Says:

    I agree, Sarah – a place like this you just take at face value. It’s like an oddball uncle that you adore. Yeah, he’s batshit crazy, but you love him for it.

  • Jady Says:

    Yup. I’ve been addicted to Bud’s for longer than 2 years, since I moved back out here! And the 30 minute drive makes it even better!

  • burger reporter Says:

    Don’t understand what all the ‘hype’ is about it. My husband and I went there last night and it is just burger place. For three twenty five you get a bufger (wasn’t great) on a soggy bun and bag of potato chips. (lays orginal only)

  • burger reporter Says:

    I’m thinking all these great reviews about Bud’s Cafe and Bar are from relatives of the owners or employees! There was NOTHING great about this place. Hamburger was blah and for $3.25 you get a small burger on soggy bun with a bag of lays regular chips on top. (there is no choice of any other chips) You don’t even get the option of lettuce and or tomatoes! I will not be going back nor will I recommend it to anyone! Don’t understand what all the hype is about it. And DEFINITELY should not have been one of top ten burger joints to eat!!

  • jko Says:

    Burger reporter – 100% disagree. (And no – none of us here have any affiliation with the restaurant). No, its not a gourmet burger, it’s just simple and damn good. Perhaps you got caught them on a bad day?
