The Famous burger not most famous

Once again COLORADO SPRINGS STYLE nominates THE FAMOUS for the city's best burger. It ran against the usual lineup of respectable dining establishments plus King's Chef, the token dive, but there were notable omissions worth pointing out. At the crux, The Famous grinds their own hamburger from bits trimmed from nonpareil $40 steaks, but we're talking Iowa corn-fed variety, not prairie grass fed beef. You can find a free-range burger at Adams Mountain, which is listed, and Manitou's The Keg, which is not. The health aspect is a first omission that might have informed local diners immeasurably. 14396

Apple Pan unchanged since 1947 or 1987

This is my favorite eatery in LA. You stand along the wall until there's a seat free at the counter. You're breathing down their necks, actually. Luckily those seated are eating at the pace they are being served. Fast. The guy working the counter will keep your glass topped, pour the ketchup for your fries, even draw a napkin out of the dispenser as he sees you reach for it. In one fluid movement he's reached your mouth before you do, or it feels that way. 1587
