Denver is the capital of a state that is proudly the healthiest in the nation. But that doesn't mean that the locals don't know how to get down with a gigantic, delicious, and artery-clogging slab of meat on a bun. Some of the places on this list like to really experiment and turn this American culinary staple into something approaching haute cuisine while others are happy to serve up textbook examples of old-school greasy monsters. Whatever type of burger you crave, Denver has it. Also, there's no pressure to run or hike it off afterward - as a visitor, you can always claim you're still adjusting to the altitude.
