This past Saturday, the Larkburger at 8000 East Belleview Avenue offered $2 burgers -- for one day -- as a thank-you to the Greenwood Village community. And what a thank-you: The lines stretched out the door, and before the day was done, the store had served up 1,700 Larkburgers. And the $2 burgers weren't the only bargain: This Larkburger was also handing out free shake samples.
The only problems with the deal? Customers were limited to just three $2 burgers -- and the other three Larkburger locations weren't in on it.
Still, this Larkburger's thank-you deserves one big "Thank you" in return.
