HBurgerCo (Denver, CO)
HBurgerCo, 1555 Blake Street, Denver, CO 80202-1625, T: 720-524-4345
HBurgerCo is another upscale burger joint in Denver, this time in LoDo. It advertises "premium hamburgers and contemporary cocktails". Normally, this is a sign for me to move on, but we were hungry and the other options around seemed less appealing, so I settled for a third day of burgers. The menu was quite diverse, as were the choices of patties (beef, turkey, lamb, veggie).
I ordered the H Burger for a steep $10.95: "Hand-formed, freshly ground 100% Angus beef, Hatch chili pepper, smoked Cheddar, sweet ‘n’ spicy bacon, Bibb lettuce, tomato and onion, served with a red pepper-tomato jam." My wife had the Grilled Ahi Tuna Steak ($12.95), which also came on a bun and with Wasabi ginger sauce, cilantro apple slaw. Both came with very crispy fries, which were not that potato-y though (that said, the spicy mayo that came with it was very tasty). While the 'tuna burger' was good, my H Burger was amazing: thick (quarterpound) burger, crunchy from outside and extremely juicy and tasty, crispy sweet bacon which blends perfectly with the sweet green chili and tangy jam on a nice bun. One of the top-3 burgers I ever had!
HBurger is a concept burger joint with quite steep prices, but great quality. The H Burger is an absolute must! Next time I will also go for the milkshakes.
