The Cherry Cricket opened more than 70 years ago on East Second Street in Denver, and has since become very popular in the Mile High City.
In November 2017, the Cherry Cricket announced the opening of a second location by Coors Field and after my visit last night, I’m not sure why it took me eight months to come try this place.
Better yet, how have I lived in Colorado for two years and this was my very first time visiting the Cherry Cricket?! I will tell you this though, it most definitely won’t be my last visit.
Burgers and beer are big business in Denver and at the Cherry Cricket you’ll find the cities favorite burgers paired with Colorado craft beers. Whether you’re craving a bean burger, veggie burger, or a burger on gluten free buns, the Cherry Cricket’s menu offers something for everyone to eat.
Guests who are waiting to be seated can enjoy the Cherry Lounge with comfortable seating, televisions, and a fireplace where they can grab a drink or a bite while waiting for their table, in view of a 1,500-gallon saltwater fish tank with a little railing perfect for kids to stand up on and get a closer look.
Table games are scattered around comfy lounge seating, TVs line the bar, and the front of the restaurant offers diner seating and a to-go counter. In the very back is a full-on mini arcade with air hockey, guitar hero, and self-serve beer taps.
Crispy Mac and Cheese Bites: Breaded Mac and Cheese
“These crispy, golden little triangles are SO GOOD, I literally ate ten!”
Mashed Puppies: Panko breaded mashed potato, bacon, cheese, and jalapeños
“SO soft and flavorful, by the time I went for seconds, they were all gone! That’s how good they are!”
Cherry Bombs: Crispy boar’s head 3 pepper Colby jack nuggets and Crispy cherry peppers
“I know these were good because I only got to try five! Everyone loved them”
Wings: Tossed in Louisiana sauce served with blue cheese, carrots, and celery
“The wings are hot and spicy but nothing too serious.”
I love burgers and the beef burgers at the Cherry Cricket are delicious! You can even choose and add from over twenty-five different toppings. Oh yeah, they also have gluten-free burger buns available!
Daniel’s Chili-Black Bean Burger
This was my very first time trying a bean burger and I am obsessed! Many veggie burgers are made from vegetables, whole grains, and legumes (like beans or lentils). These are good-for-you ingredients that provide fiber and a variety of vitamins and minerals. Not only are they healthy but they are DELICIOUS!
