Old Major is no secret, but we like it best on weekdays during lunch when the patio and bar areas transform into Royal Rooster. From 11am-3pm, Rooster sets up shop with a limited but excellent menu of sandwiches (seven options total). The semi-hidden Lower Highlands spot is one of Denver’s best under the radar options, and while the chicken sandwiches are excellent, the burger is our favorite in the city.

Hopdoddy Burger Bar
Does a Texas-based burger restaurant in LoDo mean that the takeover is complete? If this is what defeat tastes like, we’re OK with it. Hopdoddy is the real deal.
Recess Beer Garden
Take a break from the standard farm-to-table spots around town and hit up this bistro beer garden for brunch... and everything else.
One of our favorite burgers in town, and we're not alone. Park Burger has quickly become a Denver staple.
