Best Paddy Melt (2001)

Stockyards Inn

Oh, Danny boy, the pipes, the pipes are calling -- calling for you to get your buns up to the Stockyards Inn for the town's best patty melt. But because the Stockyards' owners are Irish -- very -- their version is known as a "paddy" melt. Except for the spelling change, though, this is a quintessential take on the classic sandwich: a sizable, quality beef patty (the restaurant's located in Denver's stockyards, after all) paired with American cheese between two pieces of rye and then grilled to gooey greatness.
