By September, there will be a new burger game in town: Hopdoddy Burger Bar. Created as the perfect union between beer (the hop part) and burgers, this small Texas-grown chain will open its first Colorado location next door to Union Station in the IMA building at 1705 17th Street.
Born in Austin in 2010, Hopdoddy expanded first to Dallas, then to Arizona, and it is now making its way to the Mile High City bringing along a full bar with craft beer, specialty cocktails, wine and boozy milkshakes side-by-side with a twelve burger menu, ranging from bison to lamb and tuna. There are salads and sides complementing the menu and no to-go option: these babies can only be enjoyed in the restaurant.
What to expect? A casual and bright contemporary space with orange and green accents, natural wood, and a variety of seating options. Before you try anything else on the menu, give the Goodnight, with Tillamook cheddar, barbecue sauce, sliced jalapeños, caramelized onions and sassy sauce. When you go, keep this cardinal Hopdoddy rule in mind: Never double dip in the Green Chili Queso.
The restaurant is currently seeking a general manager (and likely other positions). That listing is available on its career opportunities webpage.
