I usually don't combine the chili and burger but their green chili is also excellent and good in a bowl. My favorite and everyone I bring to try this burger is the cricket burger with smoked chedder. I've never been to Bud's but in Denver this burger is the best I've found. Everything from the bun to the fries were excellent!
Best Green-Chile Cheeseburger - 2007
The Cherry Cricket
We love green-chile cheeseburgers. We've eaten a lot of them in this city, and although none has been the green-chile cheeseburger of our dreams -- that exists only at the Owl in New Mexico -- the Cherry Cricket's green chile cheeseburger is darn good. Part of that can be attributed to the atmosphere in which it's served: aggressively anti-Creek. More can be attributed to the fact that the burger comes properly charred, and covered with those hot, sweet chiles. And perhaps most of it can be attributed to the Cricket serving the ultimate liquid sidecar for a green-chile cheeseburger: two bottles of Genny Cream Ale and a Bushmills back.
