Burger Restaurant

“Cherry Cricket about 2 and half miles away is considered one of the best burger places in Denver. It’s also in the Cherry Creek area which has a mall, shops, and restaurants. The restaurant is low key and great food bar like atmosphere but the surrounding area is bougie. I like to go there if I’m craving a really good burger.”
