Each year Yelp’s analysts set out to determine the “top” cheeseburger restaurant in every state using data obtained from Yelp’s community of online reviewers. The place that took top spot in Colorado this year is probably not the place you’d guess. 

Not the Cherry Cricket or Hamburger Mary’s, but instead Boss Burgers & Gyros in Estes Park has the top burger in Colorado this year.
