The green chile cheeseburger at Five Star Burgers.
The Five Star Burgers at 555 Broadway had a lot going for it, even on the restaurant-heavy corner of Sixth and Broadway. The green chile on that big, fat cheeseburger featured real Hatch chiles. If that and the hand-cut fries didn't fill you up, you could order deep-fried banana bread for dessert. There were even plans to book bands for live music on the patio. But the lights at Five Star Burgers have gone out.

Five Star Burgers is owned by the Taos Restaurant Group, which also owns Old Blinking Light in Highlands Ranch and Taos, and has other Five Star locations scattered between New Mexico, Missouri (that state's burger joint has a special "Iron Skillet" burger smothered in bacon gravy and topped with a fried egg) and metro Denver, where the spot at 2330 East Arapahoe Road in Centennial is still open.

In fact, according to the Five Star website, the Broadway location, is, too -- but last night it was locked up tight, with all signage gone and a dumpster out front.

I work next door, so I really wanted it to be good, but they messed up my order 75% of the time and charged way too much for mediocre burgers and terrible service. Vine St. Pub gets my vote for best burger place in town for as long as it's been open.

That's okay.  The best hamburger is a cheeseburger (American cheese) with ketchup, mustard, mayonnaise and dill pickles.  Nothing else.

The drinks and burgers were great. When I went the service was great.

Five guys is way over priced in my opinion, and nothing special! But, Five Star did have poor service, and couldn't get my order right to save their lives! I hate seeing business go under!

I thought it was better than most burger joints.. Disappointed but not surprised. Seems like everything in the area is closing...ugh

Glad the Arapahoe location is still open -- their food is way better than Five Guys.

Thankfully. Five Guys sucks.
