Reader: In-N-Out Will Beat Shake Shack in the Battle for Burger Fans

Danielle Lirette
Shake Shack will open at 30th and Larimer streets this spring, and Denver got an advance taste of Danny Meyer's New York City marvel at a Shack Shack pop-up at the Source this past weekend, when fans lined up for hours. But another long-craved burger behemoth is coming to Colorado soon, and at least one reader predicts a major smackdown when In-N-Out arrives in this state.

Says Hillary:
In-N-Out will take a big bite out of Shake Shack, and win the battle for Colorado burger fans. I'll take California sunshine and animal sauce over New York City hype any day.
Wonders Ryan: 
Who waits hours in line for a burger? Get a hobby.
Responds Nicholson
It was worth the wait. I’m still basking in the glow from my Shake Shack Burger ????
Concludes Aaron: 
New Denver is full of shenanigans and malarkey. Too much opioids, not enough blue collar.
