DETAILS

The Cherry Cricket originally opened as Mary Zimmerman's Bar in 1945 and moved in 1950 to its current Second-and-Clayton site in Cherry Creek North. From the start, it was a premier burger joint and remains one to this day, even through several notable owners. They include Bernard Duffy (owner of the famed Duffy's Shamrock downtown) and Eli McGuire, who took over in 1990 and is credited with renovating the restaurant to turn it into a mecca for sports fans, burger aficionados and regular folks who just like to eat and hang out. You can still start with tasty "horzidurvees" of crispy potato skins or hot, creamy artichoke dip served with French bread. Then it's time to move on to a quarter- or half-pound burger to which you can add two dozen toppings, from herbed cream cheese to green-chile strips for a few cents extra. The Cricket offers two dozen other types of sandwiches as well (Philly cheese steaks, gyros and meat loaf included), plus a slew of decent Tex-Mex dishes, soups and stews. And in keeping with the busy-bar theme, a suggestive shot menu features names not really printable for the under-21 crowd.

 

Full bar. Serving lunch, dinner and late-night daily.

 

" ... the Cherry Cricket is a classic burgers-and-beer kind of joint where the company is good, the coolers stocked and the burgers among the best in town"
