Rueben’s

My Rueben’s burger strayed a bit from the restaurant’s norm. When I visited last night and read the menu’s selection of burger after gourmet burger, I somehow ended up choosing the most basic thing on the menu. After completing my undergraduate college career last week, maybe I felt overwhelmed at the thought of even more choices.

It was back to basics for me, and the “Training Wheels” (how embarrassing) came with the simple garnishes of red onion, pickles, lettuce, and tomato.

Maybe it wasn’t the most impressive choice, but Rueben’s take on the traditional burger hit the spot. The toppings were crisp and the meat juicy, and the spinach and beet side salad added refreshing crunch.

Since we came on a Tuesday, every burger on the menu was $3 off. They are a bit pricey, so I highly recommend taking advantage of this deal. My burger was the cheapest on the menu and cost $9 without the discount. It is worth noting that they’re priced as such because they are high-quality–the beef is all locally grown in Colorado.

Here’s a shot of one  of the fancier burgers. The Mont Ventoux came with french fries stuffed inside the bun and topped with a fried egg.

Most of the menu is more in line with this choice as far as the crazy toppings go. One comes with pancetta, oven-roasted beets, pepperjack cheese, and avocado ranch sauce, and all of them have cute names, which I always appreciate.

What’s more, Rueben’s serves a wide variety of Belgian beers, both imported and local, and they even offer three gluten-free brews. The interior is decorated to appeal to cyclists, and I imagine that a beer and a burger would be especially satisfying after a long bike ride. It tasted good after a day of sitting, too, in case you were wondering.

No matter where your taste lies on the spectrum of burger adventure, you will definitely find something to please your palate at Rueben’s.
