Reader: Claiming any burger is "the best damn burger" is lazy and a lie

The Squeaky Bean's new cheeseburger.
Denver has a staggering number of burger joints, and you can also find burgers everywhere from Mexican restaurants to fine-dining establishments, anywhere a customer might want to order America's favorite dish. Last week Lori Midson tried the new burger at the Squeaky Bean, which just introduced lunch, and she pronounced it "the meat to beat, the boss of all burgers, the best damn burger in the city."

But in a city where people take their burgers seriously, those are fighting words. Responds
Vic:

Claiming any dish, much less a burger, is "the best damn burger in the city" has to be the biggest lie and the laziest writing mechanism.. unless you've actually eaten every damn burger in the city.
What do you consider the best damn burger in metro Denver? And how does the new Squeaky Bean burger compare to the burger at Humboldt, which we named Best Burger in the Best of Denver 2014?

Juicy Burger is the best and also their grilled chicken sandwich too.

A dead animal is a dead animal. It's the condiments you add that make it tasty.

Bang Burger is still a fav... Punch Bowl burger was good too this week.. and SmashBurger (for a chain)... juicy and skinny fries are yummy.

If the beef isn't 100% grass-fed, then it's not worth eating.  Corn-fed feedlot beef is disgusting.


We need an Elevation Burger here in the worst way; they use only organic 100% grass-fed beef in their burgers.

Unless you are sitting there with a group of friends and proclaim "this is the best damn burger I've had", then yes. It's lazy journalism.

Personally, I prefer LarkBurger or In-N-Out (sadly, it's not in Denver).

Calm down, Vic!  Calm down!  Have a shot of librium and a grilled cheese sandwich. Then lie down for a little while.  You'll feel a lot better, then.
