Handcrafted Burgers

At 5280 Burger Bar our philosophy is really quite simple. We believe that the best handcrafted burgers are made with the best ingredients.  First and foremost, that starts with the beef.  Ours is all natural and raised in Colorado, always fresh and never frozen.  You can’t make the best handcrafted burgers with a frozen beef patty, end of story.  Next, we put that burger on a bun that is made from scratch and baked fresh every day.  Then we top those burgers with the best ingredients.  Condiments made in-house rather than from a can, locally sourced fresh produce, interesting and freshly made toppings like pimento cheese, green chili queso, and slow roasted pulled pork.  We don’t compromise when it comes to making the best handcrafted burgers, because we know that you will enjoy the difference that it makes.
