More than four months after a devastating fire, The Cherry Cricket reopened in April 2017 with a long line of grateful patrons on hand to celebrate. The Cricket offers a welcoming patch of down-to-earth unpretentiousness in a sea of super-swank establishments. The Cricket has been the happy black sheep of the Cherry Creek North neighborhood for decades with its old-school pub/sports bar atmosphere and comforting combo of pub and Mexican food. While the menu has plenty of options, there's a reason Cherry Cricket's burgers have consistently been voted among the best in Denver. It could be the 30-plus topping choices--all the usual suspects including cheese, bacon, barbeque sauce and onions, along with a slew of out-there choices such as grilled pineapple, peanut butter, corned beef and raspberry or grape jam.
- Best Value: "The Cricket is open until 2 a.m. seven days a week but if you want food, get there before midnight when the kitchen closes."
- Recommended as Best Value Because: It has withstood the test of time, sticking to its working-class roots in an increasingly uber upscale neighborhood, and the burgers still get raves.
