The Best Hamburgers in Grand Junction

Sometimes after a long day spent outdoors on a long hike or a grueling bike ride, a good hamburger is the only thing that will hit the spot. And since Grand Junction has no shortage of outdoor recreation adventures, it’s no surprise that there are plenty of places to get a killer burger. Whether you spent your days hiking Colorado National Monument, mountain biking along the Colorado River, paddling on one of the Grand Mesa’s 300 lakes, or boarding at Powderhorn Mountain Resort we’ve made it easy to reward yourself with a beefy bun fix.

Right in Downtown Grand Junction, Bin 707 is known for its innovative approach to food, creating flavorful and unique combinations from locally sourced ingredients. While much of the menu changes seasonally, there is one entree that remains a constant. The Bin Burger. This steak burger is made with tender Colorado beef and cooked to melt in your mouth perfection. Topped with white cheddar cheese and, for that classic Bin twist, truffle aioli, and crisp local lettuce. Try it with Bin's spicy Siracha Kitchen Fries, or the Dill and Herb Fries for an extra treat.

After you try it, you won’t be surprised to know that Bin 707 opened up a new restaurant location to cater to the locals’ addiction to the Bin Burger. Check out Bin Burger in Downtown Grand Junction for other local food obsessions including the fried artichoke hearts, roasted brussel sprouts with white cheddar fondue, hazelnuts, crispy prosciutto, blood orange and cured yokes. Now you know what we are talking about!

Also located downtown is an innovative modern American dining experience, 626 on Rood. While their menu boasts exquisite dishes, Applewood smoked duck salad, and prime strip steak from Colorado’s Niman Ranch, they also know how to make a mean, juicy burger. The 626 7x Wagyu Burger might be a mouthful to say, but after your first bite, you'll be sure to keep your mouth full until it's gone. Made with tender, juicy wagyu beef, this burger is topped off with thick cut bourbon bacon, sharp cheddar cheese, and caramelized beer onions. Make sure to also order their specialty truffle 626 fries.

When it comes to burgers, Warehouse 25Sixtyfive keeps it old school. Their patties are thin and grilled to perfection. Get one patty, or stack them high with a triple burger. They have several burgers on the menu, but we recommend devouring the Whiskey Burger. The thin patties come piled high with hand-battered onion rings, jalapeno coins, bacon, cheddar cheese, smothered in a whiskey peppercorn BBQ sauce. Make it a triple, and you'll have a towering masterpiece that will require two hands, mouth wide open, and plenty of napkins.  Homemade chips, loaded or string fries, garlic cheese or siracha fries provide you mouthwatering options to sop up that whiskey.

Looking for lots of options? The Ale House offers a wide selection of draft beer, finger-lickin' appetizers, and hearty entrees. They offer a state pride version called the Colorado Elk Burger topped with crispy onions and a house-made tomato bacon jalapeno jam. Elk tastes similar to beef but is often described as tasting clean, slightly sweet, is lower in fat and higher in protein. Of course, the Ale House has plenty of potato options for you – choose from French fries, sweet potato fries, whipped potatoes or baked.

Sit outside at Edgewater Brewery and enjoy the patio and large grass area with a game of cornhole or live music. In between tosses, chow down on the Verde Burger. Choose between a 6 or 8 once patty and savor this burger covered in black beans, black olives, green chilies - all tucked under a blanket of habanero pepper jack cheese. When it comes to Edgewater seasoned fries, you have to decide between Cajun, garlic parmesan, or ranch.
