The Face of Neighborhood Food

Cherry Cricket

Three words come to mind when you think of history, atmosphere, burgers and beer: The Cherry Cricket. Established in 1945, The Cherry Cricket is affectionately known as “The Black Sheep of Cherry Creek.” Although it may stick out like a sore thumb from its more “refined” neighbors, this Denver staple will forever be part of the community. The Cherry Cricket is best known for its award-winning Cricket Burger and large rotating draft beer selection featuring many of Colorado’s finest craft brews.

“We began 72 years ago as a neighborhood watering hole for the local community,” says General Manager Kathy Huddleston. “All were welcome. Friends brought friends, which in turn created more friends…a gathering place of sorts, a place for patrons to let their hair down, a place to call their own. Not much has changed since then. To this day, we remain true to our roots, honoring those who helped us achieve what we are today and so grateful for the devotion and support we continue to receive.”

“Food that’s way too good for a bar this fun!”
