Generations of customers flock to this old-fashioned restaurant for its classic burgers, malts and sodas. – In Short
Jim's has been around for decades, and if its brick walls and long counter with bar stools seem slightly run-down, well that's simply part of the charm. Folks crowd the place in search of the famous, ultra-thin, crispy-on-the-edges burgers with all the fixin's. The large burgers can be ordered with one, two or three patties, but diners usually try to save room for a pile of fries and a classic chocolate coke or milkshake.
You Have To get a Double Meat Burger – If you haven't been pleased with the burgers at Jim's you probably haven't tried a double meat. See Jim's uses 100% Colman beef specially made thin patties in order to get that great flavor. I also know for a fact that Jim's is switching fries from their thin, sometimes cold to a thicker better tasting fry that holds its heat better. So if you haven't been pleased with Jim's try them again but this time order a double meat and try their new improved fries (better yet get their great green chile cheese fires). Also for kids they have these great new Hot Rods that the Kid's Meals are served in!! Please continue to comment on your concerns on City Search because the owners do look at them.
Have Double Meat will travel! – I been eating at Jims for 20 years at least. You gotta get the Double Meat with Cheese with everything if ya really want to compare burgers. Chase it with fries, and a Monster Shake or Malt, or possibly even a chocolate coke (straight from the ole days;).
They have a TRIPLE Meat that I had once and my dog also loved it! ( It's so big you practicly have to have the kids help you get it to out to the truck!) If you can finish a Triple (don't forget the cheese:) the you are a eating madman!
Another thing is it's pretty well priced and the family loves to eat there! (My wife likes the pork sandwich:)
I LOVE IT!!!! – I love Jim's Burger Haven!!! They have the best burgers in all of Denver. It is very clean and all the food is fresh. If you want to try a different burger add ham to it!!! It gives it a much better taste then bacon. Their shakes and malts are just like the old days. And dont forget to try a vanilla coke!!!
Where's the beef? – To quote a well known vintage tennis player in regard to their overall rating of 9.8: "You can't be serious"!! Their burger reminded me of the old Wendy's commercial that asked, "Where's the beef...?"
A 9.9 rating? Seriously? – The burger was OK. Lots of bun not much burger. The fries were terrible. My girlfriends sandwich, well, I warned her, it is a burger joint. If you folks that rated this the best in Denver really want to treat yourself sometime try the rest of the to 10. I think that you will be extremely happy. It is nostalgic, it is cheap, it is a 5.
I drive 40 miles just to eat there! – There is also one in Thornton on 88th and Washington? YUMMY - the large cheeseburgers are THE BEST EVER
Denver Landmark – Jim's has ALWAYS been The Best deal in town for burgers and sodas! Grandpa always took the family for a ride on Sundays. On the way home, we had supper at Jim's. It's like the neighborhood burger joint from the 50's. Great (BIG) cheeseburgers and delicious shakes & malts (made with natural ingredients and real flavorings since the beginning ). Low Price, Fast & Friendly Service, Great Bargain, Delicious Food. What more could you of your "Cheap Eats" place??!!
Go Double! – The Double Meat burger was great...you could taste the grill and the little things that make a hamburger great. The fries were terrible! There were other sandwiches on the menu that looked interesting (italian sausage with mozarella, etc). I kept hearing the staff say goodbye to people by names so there appeared to be a lot of regulars there.
The one on Sheridan is definitely better – Both locations have delicious food obviously, and the same awesome prices, but I would definitely say the drive-thru at the Thornton location makes them slower, if anything. It's easier to just get out of your car and go inside, or just drive a few more miles to the Westminster location. The people there are much friendlier to me, and my time. When you go, definitely try the new green chili. YUMMY!!!
