In a piece called “50 States, 50 Burgers,”’s current issue features burgers, including surveys of what kind of meat (or meat substitute) Americans like for the burgers, what kind of roll, what our favorite condiments are and of course, where the best burgers can be found.

The staffers — I call them “Zagateers” —  selected City Grille’s buffalo burger, here’s how the it under the headline:

Colorado: Buffalo Burger at City Grille in Denver

“In a state known for buffalo and burger lovers who crave bison over beef, it’s only fitting that the Buffalo Burger is a favorite of the Centennial State. Bison, or American buffalo, is often leaner, less fatty and some say sweeter — though many also claim the taste isn’t much different than a beef burger. Over at local favorite City Grille in Denver, they serve up a hefty buffalo burger: a half-pound patty, charbroiled to perfection. Much praised, the healthy low-fat, low-cholesterol burger can be topped with a variety of cheeses, a fried egg or guacamole.”

CityGrille, which is owned by two sisters, is at 321 East Colfax Avenue, Denver.
