The burgers are the best i've had!! Their bean nachos are very good too! The service needs to get a little better. The service part of the experience almost ruined it for me, but the food was great.

I can't say that one star has anything to do with the food quality, as we left before ordering. Upon arrival on a Sunday night at 7:00 p.m., we entered into a horribly loud, packed, and physically uncomfortable atmosphere. My party was ID checked at the door and promptly ignored. That is until a rude server told us we could not stand in the entryway and that we needed to move to the back of the restaurant. We headed to the back and found a table that was open. A while later, a server approached indicating that we should move, since we seemed to be cramped in at the table. Another individual came by stating that we needed to move because they have a 40 minute wait and other people are waiting. After explaining we were told to go to the back of the restaurant to look for a table, they repeated that we needed to move. We left after that wonderful episode. I came back to speak with the manager who did not seem inclined to acknowledge anything wrong with this situation other than they assumed we sat ourselves. After impressing upon him the facts of the event and my dissatisfaction, all he said was 'sorry.' After asking to talk to the owner, he reluctantly agreed to offer a gift card, which he only provided after I waited another 10 minutes. THE WORST RESTAURANT EXPERIENCE EVER!!!!!

HORRIBLE SERVICE!!!! After waiting over a half hour we were called for a table. Then were told they made a mistake and it wasn't ready, and waited another half hour, only to be crammed into a too small booth and told we could find our own

My boyfriend brought me here for my birthday dinner last night (4/5/11) and the ONLY thing we got from our order was our drinks! No salads, no dinner. NOTHING. After 35 minutes the waiter came by and asked if we had gotten our salads yet?

This is our 2nd move with them and once again we are VERY happy with the outcome. Our
movers came early and were ready to go. They disassembled and reassembled our King size

First off, let me start out by saying a friend and I went to this restaurant on a Wednesday afternoon at about 3:00 p.m. so we did not have to deal with the crowds, but the place was still very busy.

The burger was amazing!!!!! I ordered medium rare, which was just perfect, with jalapenos and white cheddar.... I just wanted to keep eating it all day... great flavor, perfectly done and a true burger lovers dream

Slightly better than My Brothers Bar and City Grill but I would still recommend those also. If you live in the Boulder area, I would say it is comparable with Southern Sun's burgers, but still better.

If you are in the area of Cherry Creek, or if you are like me and will drive a good distance for a great burger experience, then go! I would be shocked if you did not find this to be one of the best burgers you have ever experienced!

This has to be the best burger joint in Denver. I am never disappointed with the food. The fried macaroni and cheese is incredible for a "gotta have it" splurge. A great bar atmosphere, with a ton of seating since they expanded. This is a great neighborhood haunt, but if you live in the burbs it is worth the trip, plus you can shop Cherry Creek North, make a day of it.

It was my dispeasure to have visited Cherry Cricket, for the 1st time, on 03/15.
When I arrived, I was told there was a 10 minute wait. I was given a pager and told they would let me know when a table was ready. My party waited just outside of the main door. Well, 20 mins later, I went in to see the hostess and ask what the problem was. She told me that they had paged me 3 times and thought I had left. They tested the pager and it didn't work. I asked the hostess if it had occured to her to check outside to see if we were out there. When I said this, one of the doormen began to berate me for being rude to the hostess. He let this go on for about 3 minutes. Then I was told that we would have to wait for another table to become available.
I was appaulled at the lack of customer service and how rude the employee was to me. I do not believe he should be treating a customer that way, especially one that is visiting for the first time.
I chose to not eat there and went somewhere else. I do not plan to return to Cherry Cricket.

I??ve often said that The Cherry Cricket is the Honda Civic of the Denver burger scene. It??s never gonna wow you, but it also won??t let you down either. Exhibit A: The white cheddar and green chili burger. Toppings were fairly flavorless, but once again, the excellent meat redeems it. You always leave thinking, ??that was good? not great, but pretty good?. Rating: 6------

I had the 1/2 pound blackened burger with smoked cheddar and a side of rings. It was the best burger that I've had in a long time! Very affordable prices, especially considering the area. Don't know about their other food but this was A+. Great selection of draft beers also. Check out their website to see specials and soup of the day. Word to the wise, this place gets packed on the weekends. Plan on a wait to get in if you go during peak times.

Always a beer of the day on sale. Like that a lot. The burgers are the best. Better than CityGrille. Better than My Brother's Bar. Better even than fancy steakhouses (Elways, etc...). Think I'm wrong? I'm willing to continue to try the competition... tell me what I'm missing.....

I like to sit at the bar and order Bloody Mary's on while watching whatever sporting event is on and getting an earful from the friendly staff while waiting for my burger. I like to get my burger with cream cheese and jalapenos.

Their burgers are awesome and great for a hungry family! Be prespared to wait, though and street parking can be tough to find and get expensive during peak times. We ate there mid-afternoon during the week, when parking was ealier to find and the wait time wasn't as long. Wait-staff is friendly, and high energy. The atmosphere is great for kids, teens and noisy families!

So for my birthday last night we decided to stay local and head to the Cherry Cricket. After having a good first experience at this semi-dive bar we decided to head back. The first of the many turn-offs to this place happened when one of the girls we were with (28) had forgotten her id, so instead of her heading back home she just decided to not drink at this place. UNFORTUNATELY the staff at the cricket did not "trust" us so they had one person at all times stand in the corner of the outside patio and shadily watch us. Needless to say it was rude and did not allow anyone to fully enjoy themselves. Things like "dont try anything" and "we'll be watching you" made us feel as though we had done something wrong from the second we arrived. The night ended when the girl we were with was informed she had to leave at midnight bec/ they were no longer serving food and she was deemed underage. Place made us feel unappreciated and as though our business was not welcome there.

This bar has great ambiance, and it located in my favorite Denver neighborhood. We watched the soccer finals a few years back the first time I had been there, and it was a perfect spot. The drinks were good, plenty of TVs to watch the action, and an overall jovial crowd made for a grand time. Cherry Creek dissolved away, and we were in England throwing back a few pints with our best buds. The only drawback was lack of parking in the area. But it won't stop me from bringing everybody I know?whenever I can! Bottoms up!

Seems mellow and laid-back, especially for the Cherry Creek area, with decent burgers and the like. Crowded. Parking could get tricky here. If you want to spend a night of dinner and other activities in a less yuppie-fied area, you might want to try something closer to downtown Denver or west and northwest Denver.

This is one of my favorite places to get a burger and a brew. I have eaten here several times and the wait times have always been reasonable, and the food fantastic. Remember, that it is bar and everything will really be ok. I always get the Cricket burger with smoked cheddar and some fries or onion rings to share with everyone. Last time we tried the mac and cheese bites and they were really good. Fried food heaven.

While the food is well done, the service makes the experience not worthy of repeating. I even gave the Cherry Cricket a second chance and once again they blew it. The second time we didn't even actually eat there. We stood at the door waiting for someone to seat us for ten minutes, we were completely ignored by every member of the wait staff for that entire period, not one word was spoken to us even though we were frequently walked right by. And when the dim witted hostess finally arrived, with no explanation or apology, she asked us if we wanted to be put on the list, as though maybe we were standing there for our health, only after asking the people who had walked in the door right as she walked up (as in ten minutes after we did). I don't mind there being a wait on a Saturday night, but the complete lack of competence is inexcusable. Their wait staff leaves much to be desired.

A great dive in the midst of swanky Cherry Creek. I'm surprised they let it live and thrive, except it has such great fun ambiance.Great burgers, green chili, beer, loud fun music and something for the young crowd to do.

I have gone to the Cherry Cricket twice with my husband and friends. It's always crowded and it's a fun, young place to go.If you have out of town company it's a nice jaunt to the Cherry Cricket especially if you are entertaining the younger generation.The burgers are really good. The place is just a small hole in the wall
and nothing fancing but it draws a fun crowd.

It may be a dive, but the burger is honestly the best I've ever had. Any aficionado of burgers MUST try this. I go white cheddar and mushrooms medium rare with some queso and chips to start.... make sure to douse the queso with Cholula!

I hate to tell people about this place because it's crowded enough already. I am the world's expert of chicken wings and my husband of burgers, and this is best place for both. Good prices, even better food, and more beer than you know what to do with. The people watching is great since it's the closest thing to a dive bar you can get in the uppity Cherry Creek area. No pretension here! Seriously, we've gotten all our friends hooked and we don't even live nearby!

A down to earth crowd in the heart of Cherry Creek. Is it possible? Yes! Nothing fancy, nothing over priced just good food, drink, and crowd. Haven't tried the burger yet, but the wings were fantastic. I like going here to hang out with friends and kick back a couple. Everytime I am there, it's packed! That's a good thing of course....

This, by far, is the best burger in Denver. You cannot beat the price, either. Not once have I felt neglected by the Cricket wait staff. All in all, great value. There's a reason this place is famous.

I checked this place out a the other weekend because I heard about it on the news as having the best burgers in Denver. It was a Sunday evening and it was PACKED in this place. It took us a few minutes to find a table among the screaming children and the amplified conversations struggling to be heard over the music. The service was bad. Very slow & it was so loud in this place it was hard to place an order. I understand they were busy, so maybe another waiter or waitress on staff would have been a wise choice. However, I asked for a large ice water and that's what I got. It was HUGE! A+ on the drink sizes! I took one look at the menu and was seriously disappointed. The burgers, burger toppings and fries are all a la carte. I paid over a buck for a measly 3 thin slices of avocado to add to my burger & fries that ended up costing about $10 and I only got two toppings. The fries were perfectly crispy and well seasoned, they tasted great! The burger was so greasy it was dripping through the bun which made the bun soggy. It was gross & messy but regardless of the mess, it did taste good. We sat at our table after we ate for what seemed like an eternity of our waitress ignoring us and after FINALLY flagging her down we were able to pay and get out of there. I don't see myself going back. If you're a rich Cherry Creek yuppie who thinks it's ok to spend $10 on a HAMBURGER and need somewhere to take your crazy children, this is the place for you.

I have been to the Cricket 3 times. I think the burgers are over rated. I find them to be too dry. Like chewing leather. I think to be dissatisfied 3 different times and to not have a good experience there, I will not be returning. I guess I just don't see what the deal is for best burger. I have had better burgers delivered via Mama Mia's.

Burgers, like pizza's are subjective things. One person may like a greasy, messy burger. Another may be about size or texture or what the burger comes with.

All that said, I wanted to give the Cricket a try and I am glad I did. This restaurant has long had a reputation for one of the best burgers in the Denver Metro area and I can't say that I disagree. When we arrived, the place was packed. Even so, we were able to find a seat at the bar pretty quickly and were asked about drinks right away. We could have waited an additional 5 minutes for a table, but when the bar tender asked if we wanted to eat at the bar, we said sure! (the fact that my favorite baseball team was on the tube may have had something to do with the decision...)

The burgers came quick and as ordered. They were hot and well prepped and I have to say I was very pleased overall. The atmosphere is boisterous there, so don't come for romance! But if you want good food and a fun time, the Cricket is a place to find it. I've read many of the older reviews and there was much made about the smoking there in days gone by. With Denver's no-smoking policy, this is no longer an issue, so don't let smoke be a concern!

Pros: Fun atmosphere, great food, excellent service

Cons: parking is a pain, it's pretty loud (which isn't a problem unless it bothers you!)

Don't get me wrong, the burger was awesome, and the beer selection is good. I was in the area with some time to waste, so I decided to pop in there for a bite eat. It was a good atmosphere and everyone was friendly. I ordered a simple burger with fries and one beer. I was quite impressed with the burger, but when the bill came, it cost me a whole Jackson ($20) after tip. All I had was a burger, fries, and one beer. Seemed a little pricey if you ask me. So I would definitely recommend this place, but I'm just kind of curious how they classify this as a "Cheap Eat" on Citysearch.

Great burgers, reasonable prices, good service, nightly beer specials, pool tables, relaxed atmosphere...The list goes on and on. This is a great spot and you have to be a nut job not to like this place.

Pros: burgers, beer, atmosphere

Cons: none in my book

Great burgers, never had anything that was bad. One of the best burger places in Denver. They usually also have specials on beer. It usually takes a while to get in, so give yourself some extra time.

The Cricket is a classic. As the rest of Cherry Creek has changed over the years, the Cricket has stayed the same, which is a good thing. They have a huge variety of food, great atmosphere, and by far the best burgers around. After you eat here once, you will always think of the Cricket when you're looking for food in Cherry Creek...

Hands down the Cherry Cricket makes the best burger you will ever eat in your life! I have eaten burgers just about everywhere and these are the best by far. However, be prepared to pay for it! The burger alone costs $6 and the each topping is from 50 cents to a buck or so. To top it off it doesn't come with any fries. Nevertheless, it is well worth the price! The French fries here are excellent and the drinks are good also. Highly recommended.

Pros: Best Hamburger

Cons: A bit pricey for bar food, can be really crowded.

Finally, its kid friendly! Hidden in the back near the kitchen, it looks like a secret room, but its an addition for the nonsmokers...Mostly people wanting to eat their awesome burgers (2nd best in Denver) and drink some beer. The food is always reliable, if you are going to crash your diet, this is a good choice!

We have been here too many times to mention. The food is always great, especially the appertizers, burgers and salads. The staff is always quick and friendly. It's one of the best people-watching places around. A college scene frequented by many of us old people, it makes for a fun time.
