> Larkburger's menu offers 100 percent certified Angus beef hamburgers,

Oh cute, "angus" beef. Is that still a thing? Or are they doing it ironically?

That is certainly noteworthy

I've driven by this Larkburger maybe 20 times in the past month. I always wondered where they get their larks from. Is a larkburger kind of like a turkeyburger?

I mean really. We're catching and eating THESE now?

Maybe they are using the lark bunting instead. It IS the state bird.

restaurants that advertise burgers that are a cut above McDonald's, Burger King and other fast-food chains.


How hard is this to achieve? It's like people who think showering daily is an accomplishment.

"Larkburger began in 2006 as a spinoff of the Larkspur fine dining restaurant in Vail, Baker said. He was Larkspur's general manager; his partners in the hamburger chain are Larkspur's owners."

As a matter of fact, based on their menu, they do in fact have turkeyburger.

I like burgers but that's a terrible name. When I see the name I see "Lacklusterburger" or "Lackburger".

This is the bun
Beautiful fun
This is the bun
Delicious fun, the bun
Two patties, lettuce, cheese, the bun
and some sesame seeds, the bun
The pickles on the side, the bun
Please super size the fries, my son.

Can you picture what we'll eat?
It really tastes like meat
Desperately in need of a Shamrock Shake
And a Take 'n' Bake

Lost in a Roman wilderness of sides
and all the chicken is deep fried
all the chicken is deep fried
Grab a dog at Grays Papa-YAAAaaaaaaa....

[guitar solo, music fades. Sound of Bell UH-1 flying over]


Subway... s**t. I'm still only at Subway. Every time, I think I'm gonna wake up back in the Jamba.

When I was home after my first taco, it was worse. I hardly said a word to my wife until I said yes to a double cheeseburger.
When I was here, I wanted to be there. When I was there, all I could think about was getting back into the Jamba.

I've been here a week now. Waiting for a McRib, getting
soft serve. Every minute I stay in this room I get weaker. And every minute
Carls Jr. squats in the bush he gets stronger.
Each time I look around the walls move in a little tighter.

Everyone gets everything he wants. I wanted a McRib, and for my sins
they gave me one. Brought it up to me like room service. "

I've visited Colorado Springs several time and I must say "The food in Colorado Springs is generally awful".

And because the food is bad there the people living there think bad food is normal so they don't care.

99% of the restaurants are chains and your choices are between eating from a chain with under 10 restaurants or from one with over 100. There are independent restaurants but since most people there prefer chains the independents don't do too well even though they usually are as good or better than the chains. I haven't heard of any food scene there involving knowledgeable eaters seeking out the best of the independents.

So yes a burger war in Colorado Springs is a big deal - because that is the most interesting and exciting food thing happening there in that God forsaken desert of taste.

I never could figure this out. I live in a military-contracting town, with people who have (theoretically) been all over the world. Why would you want goddamn McDonalds??? Is it that hard to get off the base in Asia?

Nah, you have to go a little west of there to Manitou Springs for that. It's awesome there. Or at least, it was. I haven't been back in a decade or so.

Y'all need to come south to Pueblo and have a Bingoburger. They put chiles in the burger and make your fries in front of you. Organic tomatoes, lettuce, onion......
