We got out of a hail storm while waiting for the Coors Brewery tour across the street and found this place to be especially efficient, friendly and tasty. Burgers were cooked medium-rare and with a selection of sauces for dressing them. Good prices and the fries were in generous proportion. "Extras" cost more, but the list of "no added cost" relishes were more than adequate for us.

Wow! I thought that a burger was a burger until I had one here. Phenomenal!! The burgers are cooked just right, flavored just right, and are huge. The onion petals are superb and the sweet potato fries are so tasty. I have nothing bad to say about this place except that they need more seating. Love this place. You have got to visit it and it is convenient to the Coors factory so you can head there after the tour. You won't be disappointed!

Yes, this place has good burgers. You can customize them however you want. They even have different kind of fries, like sweet potato fries and onion pedals. However, everything you want to add, adds to the overall price. Every slice of cheese, bacon, jalapenos, egg, whatever. If you want a good burger at a good price, this probably isn't the place. Plus, it is very busy for lunch.

Had a reason to have a late lunch in Golden. Looked around, and this place seemed to have good prices on sandwiches and sides. So dropped in for a try.

Prices for some toppings were a tad less than posted on their Website. That was a pleasant surprise. The basic hamburger was nicely cooked, with fresh lettuce, tomato, onion, etc. The resulting overall makeup of the sandwich was fine. The meat patty itself does not look like it is formed on-site, however. (Cisco, perhaps?) A side of onions was also fine. A chocolate malt had the consistency of one made with soft ice cream, rather than real ice cream. For the price, that was a bit of a surprise.

The building itself is basic - as one can see on this TA review page plus Bob's Website. What is omitted from those photos was the *very* pleasant view of South Table Mountain from the tables in front of the restaurant. On a beautiful day, this added immensely to the pleasant lunch.

Is this a truly magical meal? Maybe not quite. If you have had a good campus-town bar burger, this one was sort-of typical, but for (for me) just the right amount of very fresh lettuce, tomato, and onion. (For me, I like quite a bit of fresh toppings - a.g. about the same thickness as the patty itself, or a bit more.) No need for catsup on this burger.

Service was cheerful - and fine in all other ways.

I deducted a bit for the price vs. apparent soft ice cream cop-out on the malt (e.g. a $5 malt should have real ice cream IMHO). I added a bit for the great view from the outside tables.

Budget tip - food may be better-priced than drinks. So if you drink the area's delicious tap water (better than any bottled stuff), you're increasing your value here.
