NileGuide Expert tip:
Be prepared to wait if you arrive at peak dinner time with a large group – this place is always packed and no, they don't take reservations.
The Cherry Cricket doesn't fit in with the rest of the upscale Cherry Creek North shopping district, but that's hardly their fault. The Cricket has been operating in the neighborhood in one form or another since 1945. Its reputation has been remade time and time again as well as the restaurant changed hands repeatedly. The Cherry Cricket has existed in its current form since the early 90s and has become a neighborhood staple: as its surroundings get ever ritzier, the Cricket continues to serve up the same great burgers, cheap drinks, and greasy bar food.
Everyone in Denver has an opinion on the Cherry Cricket – some think it's too divey or too crowded, but there are just as many who will swear the make the best burger in town or that it's worth the wait.
