Larkburger’s menu

Without a doubt I can say Larkburger makes the best burger I have had in Boulder.

If you want to feel like you are in an Apple Store with the intentions of ordering a burger, Larkburger is the perfect place. The “trendsetter” feel to their interior design is really not ahead of the curve, and their burger isn’t either. They really only have 4 burgers, which comes off as very bold being a burger restaurant and all. You walk into this place thinking, “Woah! This place looks so NEW!” But really, they just serve 4 not very original renditions of the classic boutique-style burger. The quality is the key, though.

I walked up to the counter to a very unenthused cashier and glanced at the menu. From their diverse yet limited menu of burgers, there is something for everyone…but only one choice for each category. Are you a vegetarian, a red meat avoider, or do you need to get your fishy Omega-3s? There’s only one choice for you, but hey at least they have it. I chose the Truffle Burger [$6.75], as it was the most creative thing on their menu.

“492″ shouted another unenthused employee, referring to my meal. I swear as I walked up to grab my tray he gave me something akin to a death stare, as if I ruined his day or something. Anyway, the popsicle stick said “medium” even though my burger was ordered “medium rare.” Maybe they couldn’t fit all those letters on such a small popsicle stick… but at least my burger was cooked to my liking. It took me a few bites to reach the tomato. That kind of threw off the feng shui of my burger: my last bite was pretty much just lettuce, tomato and bun. As part of this could have been my fault since there is a chance I had improper burger-eating form, I felt obligated to eat the last bite. I even enjoyed it, which really pays a tribute to Lark’s fresh and natural ingredients.

Here are the Truffle & Parmesan Fries [$2.95] just to fill out the truffly night. The name pretty much gives away all the ingredients, minus the italian parsley. These hand-cut suckers were definitely the perfect accomplice to help me polish off the end of my meatless burger.

Don’t be fooled by Larkburger’s “new” look. They have a great burger that is definitely praiseworthy, but it’s nothing new. Also, even though places with really nice interior design seem like they should be naturally coupled with great service, don’t get your hopes up…it’s only a burger shop.


Horrible fucking prose… Go buy another northface sweatshirt, dick-licker.

what do north face sweatshirts have to do with being a dick-licker? I don’t think the gays really like the NF. And the females only really like the light blue ones.
