Westword's Description

When Spanky's Roadhouse, a faux roadhouse complete with grime, first started flipping burgers in the University of Denver neighborhood, it was a fresh concept and a welcome addition to the area. Today it's part of a group that also owns Reiver's and the Dusty Boot restaurants, and everything it serves seems pretty standard and fairly tired: Colorado brews including Coors Light and Fat Tire, cheap wells and a standard bar menu. The place is dark, even in the daytime, but the shadows mask the bar-room grit that seems to be etched into every surface. Which is to say that it has a friendly, old-time neighborly feel and is often half-full of twenty-somethings putting their student schedule to good use. Spanky's also offers a Wisconsin-style fish fry every Friday and Saturday, and hosts Geeks Who Drink on Wednesdays.

    i think that this is the best burger in denver, and on top of that they have great shakes and malts. a great place to go in the summer for the patio in the afternoon.
