Along with enjoying the art of making our food, we do tend to eat out often due to our busy work schedules. Occasionally we will go up to Denver just to get a fantastic meal at one of our favorite restaurants. One restaurant in particular is Duffy’s Cherry Cricket.
We found this place by accident while shopping at the nearby Cherry Creek Mall learned that it was featured on Food Network’s The Best Thing I Every Ate Burgers. I decide to try the burger that Aaron Sanchez raved about. The ½ pound cricket burger topped with a juicy grilled green chili, mayo, lettuce, finely chopped jalapeno, with a slice of smoked cheddar. They cook the burger perfectly to a medium to medium well so it bursts with flavor. We shared the large basket of fries (too much for one person) and I erroneously paired it with an IPA beer. The beer was too bitter for me with the combination of flavors from this burger. A hefeweizen or similar would have been better for this meal. Next time!
They offer a wide variety of food and drinks at the Cherry Cricket. I am sure we will be heading that way soon and check it out if you are ever in the area. You wont regret it.
