Twelve area restaurants competed in the Denver Burger Battle last night--Crave Real Burgers was voted Best Burger.

Crave Real Burgers dominated the Denver Burger Battle last night, earning First Place for Best Burger in both the judges' and peoples' choice categories.

"To have that happen -- and for it to be a double-win -- was such an elation," says Jeff Richards, owner of Crave Real Burgers. The name of Crave's burger, "Love Stinks," was inspired by its ingredients: fried onion, raw onion, roasted garlic and garlic aioli. The burger also featured an Angus beef patty, candied bacon, roasted red pepper aioli, and roasted red peppers.
