Better Beef. Better Bun. Best Burger in Colorado Springs.

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 mound of cheddar cheese around the beef and grill it until it resembled a “skirt”. And thus, the signature “Skirted Heifer” burger was born.

Fast forward to 2019, and the Skirted Heifer has won “Best Burger” six years running from the Colorado Springs Independent and the Colorado Springs Gazette. The deliciousness has also been featured on Food Network’s Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives. Their commitment to quality ingredients, as well as their commitment to the environment is what sets them apart. From grass-finished beef and house-made condiments, to their eco-friendly practices, every detail has been considered with great care. Continuing their family tradition of excellence, the Megyeri’s eldest son, Kevin opened a second location in 2019 on the north side of town. Serving up the same great burgers, the Dublin location features homemade Ice Cream Cookie Sandwiches and Colorado Crafted beer.

These Burgers are Kind of a Big Deal

Awards & Achievements

The Megyeris’ formula for the most delicious burger gained recognition nationwide when they received a visit from Food Network’s Guy Fieri. As seen on episode 3 of season 24 of Diners Drive-ins and Dives, the Megyeris took Guy to flavortown by way of The Hangover burger. Suzette and son, Kevin were later invited by Guy to participate in Guy’s Grocery Games(S19, E14&16) where they took second place and walked away with $10k in winnings. Back home in Colorado Springs, though, their burgers are second to none for six years running. The Skirted Heifer has won “Best Burger” by the local publications, the Independent and the Gazette, every year since opening their doors. Click the links below to learn more.

Our Food

Better Beef

We strive to not only provide our customers with the best burgers, but also to uphold our commitment to the environment and ethical animal agriculture practices. This is why we source our free range, 100% grass-fed, grass finished beef locally, from right here in Colorado.

Better Buns

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.

Better Burger

All the tiny details added together really make a better burger than anything else you will find in Colorado Springs. That's why we're celebrating our 6th consecutive ``Best Burger`` award since we opened up shop. Come in and taste the difference yourself!

Healthy & Homemade

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!
