Reader: Claiming any burger is "the best damn burger" is lazy and a lie
The Squeaky Bean's new cheeseburger.
Denver has a staggering number of burger joints, and you can also find burgers everywhere from Mexican restaurants to fine-dining establishments, anywhere a customer might want to order America's favorite dish. Last week Lori Midson tried the new burger at the Squeaky Bean, which just introduced lunch, and she pronounced it "the meat to beat, the boss of all burgers, the best damn burger in the city."

Claiming any dish, much less a burger, is "the best damn burger in the city" has to be the biggest lie and the laziest writing mechanism.. unless you've actually eaten every damn burger in the city.
