Best Burger With No Trimmings Whatsoever Denver 2004 - Caro's Corner

Caro's Corner can be tough to find if you don't know what you're looking for, and even once you do find it, you won't see the niceties that some people find necessary for their dining enjoyment. Little things like tables, a menu, waitresses, regular hours, a phone. But if you can get past all that, you'll realize you're in a place where the grillman's art is still being practiced with a purity and simplicity that's all too rare these days. Owner Jeffrey Patterson does nothing but burgers. Hamburgers, cheeseburgers, doubles of either, and that's it. There's a chalkboard on the wall that lists fries, and catfish nuggets on Friday, but forget those. At Caro's, the meat is what matters, and Patterson makes a beast of a burger, big as a dinner plate and as fresh as you'll get anywhere -- because nothing is done until you come through the door and ask for it. Yes, this means you'll have to wait a while, but know that in the end, the wait, the drive, everything, will all be worth it.

So I take it you didn't even try the food. Pity- they're really good. Westword's on the mark with this one. Maybe the beginning of a renaissance for the area?

Seriously? I mean really?? This has got to be a joke or something. My GF and I decided we wanted a good burger so we read the reviews here on Westword. So we decided to take a "cruise" down to Caro's Corner, but it wasn't mentioned to us that we needed to pack heat to drive through this neighborhood. After our drive through slumville, the boarded up buildings became more and more frequent, and i couldn't imagine how a business that serves food could survive in this deplorable neighborhood.

Since it was so highly recommended by Westword, our search continued even though our lives were in danger. Possibly one of the best burgers in denver was at stake! When we finally found "Caro's Corner", we wanted to run for our lives. First of all the place didn't even look habitable, let alone open for buisness. I highly doubt that this "building" was up to any type of code.

We sped off laughing, wondering if that was a joke, because if it was, you got us Westword. You got us good.
