After several recommendations, we headed over to Zombie Burger- and were so glad we did! Full disclosure, as the one member of of family that is a fan of The Walking Dead, I loved the theming. But even better was the food. I cannot recommend more ZB. Meat eater, vegetarian, doesn't matter. Run, don't walk, to Zombie Burger!

This is a must stop! We were driving thru on our way back to denver and saw this place on the road trippers app. So glad we stopped. We went about 530 and it wasn't busy but when we left they were on a wait. Try a cake shake and the loaded fries SO so good! And if you are feeling adventurous try the walking chedd. It has deep fried Mac and cheese as a bun! Go here, I promise it won't disappoint!!

This is a must-do attraction/eatery! The servers were very nice and helpful. We LOVED our burgers and shared an order of fries. No room for dessert, but the shakes sound delish!

Love Zombie Burger! Stopped in 2017 during our first cross-country road trip. It has since become a staple of all our road trips; we'll detour several states for the food, service and atmosphere of Zombie Burger and their delicious shakes!

So good!! The food was incredible. My husband and I shared the Juan of the dead burger and it was off the hook. Amazing flavors and not spicy at all.

Great burgers, beer list and service. And an easy walk to the Wells-Fargo arena.

We went to the waiter side and found service to be friendly and attentive.
We started with wings and jalapeño poppers then had 2 burgers.
The food is really good, nice flavors, and burgers are filling.
These are smashed, bashed as they say, so the patties will be thin and if using 80/20 chuck will have that greasy burger tastiness.
