"Our Story"

It started with a light conversation between Kevin and Suzette Megyeri about what kind of business would fit well in their family's commercial building in Downtown Colorado Springs. The couple, who already has a well established Italian restaurant called Bambino's, wanted to try their hand at a new concept. The small talk birthed the idea of a burger joint. When making burgers at home, they would melt a mount of cheddar cheese around the beef and grill it until it resembled a “skirt”. They always called the burger the “Skirted Heifer”!

"Our Food"

We had a pretty good hunch that Colorado Springs was ready for a burger restaurant that focused on not only grass-fed beef but grass finished beef. Not only for the nutritional factor, but for taste. So, we researched several different ranches in Colorado and decided on “Sangres Best Beef” from Wescliff Colorado. We were very impressed with the care and compassion that Elin Ganschow puts into raising their animals at Music Meadows Ranch. But knowing the source of our beef wasn't enough! We wanted to support our local farmers, egg farmers and bakers too. We decided to make our condiments and sauces homemade. One of our cooks at Bambino's told us how good a burger was on our focaccia bread. So one of our bun choices is Garlic Focaccia Bun made from our homemade pizza dough. We also knew that was had to have the best fries. We have Belgian and Sweet Potato Fries. Both freshly cut potatoes seasoned with our secret spice blend. We also have homemade Frozen Custard which is hard to find in this region. With our commitment to all things as healthy and homemade as possible our perfect choice for beverage was Boylan's Hand Crafted Natural soda! We hope you enjoy the extra effort!

"Boylan's Natural Soda"


Boylan Bottling’s story starts in 1891, when a pharmacist named William Boylan created an elixir in his Paterson, New Jersey, apothecary. He named that serum, a derivative of birch trees, Boylan’s Birch, and began selling individual cups from a barrel in the back of a wagon.

1900 – 1970s

William Boylan began bottling his birch beer after partnering with John W. Sturr, a local politician, in 1900. The partnership soon fizzled, but Boylan continued bottling his product until Prohibition in the 1920s, when Boylan was primarily sold in unused beer barrels.

LATE 1900s

In the latter part of the 20th century, Boylan found its greatest success in the distinctive long-neck embossed glass bottles for which the brand has become so well known. The general shape of the bottle and its embossed patterns have remained relatively unchanged from early iterations.


Although Birch Beer will always be a big part of the brand’s heritage, Boylan today is best known for its full line of hand-crafted sodas, ranging from our core four Ginger Ale, Root Beer, Black Cherry and Creme sodas, to other popular flavors, including Cane Cola, Orange and Grape.
