It's July, which means high season for burgers...even plant-based burgers. Grilled or grabbed to go, burgers are summertime favorites in the Mile High City.
And Mike had an interesting addition:
Nice list. One surprising spot for a ridiculously amazing vegan burger is the Whole Foods on Hampden. Impossible burger, pretzel bun, lots of gourmet toppings and sauces. Great fries, too.
If you want a good vegan burger and you don't know about Hemp Way Foods...you're slacking!
5280's burger, while delicious, isn't actually vegan. There's egg in it as a binder.
Why copy food? Enjoy your veggies, don't try to imitate meat. Weird.
Why flavor meat with plants (herbs and spices)? Enjoy your dead body and eat it raw...
And Zoë says simply:
Thanks for covering Denver's fantastic vegan scene!

"How to Go Vegan at Coors Field This Season"
Many restaurants throw a token veggie burger on the menu, but it’s often made with cheese or eggs — or it’s just not very good. But we found plenty of spots that are doing it right. Even Coors Field scores this season.
Our list: Burger Fi, City, O' City, Highland Tap & Burger, Hopdaddy Burger Bar, Illegal Burger, Native Foods Cafe, Park Burger, TAG Burger Bar, Watercourse Foods. And 5280, but we'll check on that egg issue.
