Jeff Richard, chef/owner of the Old Stone Church, a New American eatery in Castle Rock, loves old American food, too, and a few years ago he started putting together plans for a burger joint. While continuing to run the Old Stone Church, he leased a strip-mall spot near the Castle Rock shopping outlets, where he built out a hip, modern take on the lunch-counter concept, using blond woods, metal and a healthy shot of vibrant orange on the traditional bar and booth elements. The menu at this reimagined classic American diner features another reimagined diner staple: the burger, using the traditional ground-beef patty as the foundation for another dish entirely. The Wing, for example, adds all the elements of hot wings, including crispy chicken, to that base. The Dim Sum Daffy stacks the patty with roasted duck, hoisin and wontons. There's so much to crave on some of these combos that you can skip the burger altogether, simply ordering them as sandwiches.
