Reader: Way to Stay Strong and Not Sell Out Like Every Other Spot in Cherry Creek!

The Cherry Cricket celebrated its seventieth birthday on Friday. Over the decades, it's collected friends and foes alike — not just in Denver, but around the country, as its burgers became legendary. And if you live in this city, chances are very good you've not only eaten at the Cricket, but have a strong opinion about it — just as these readers do. Says Stephanie:
That carpet inside is about seventy years old, too.
Says Ryan:
Way to stay strong and not sell out like every other spot in cherry creek!! Keep on, keeping real!
Says Michael: 
Burgers are overrated there; nowadays there are so many delicious burger joints
And Becca says simply:
I love you, Cherry Cricket!
Here's to many more decades of burgers at the Cherry Cricket — and many more comments about those burgers. Feel free to share yours now.
