1 Ajax Tavern

Affectionately called the Double-Double, this burger comes with twice the meat and the cheese. And, when it's MIlagro Ranch grass-fed beef, it's hard to say no to a second serving. Paired with onion aioli and fries (truffle if you dare), this bulky sandwich is best with a cold beer.

2 J-Bar at the Hotel Jerome

The Jerome Burger can stand alone, but the magic is in its fixings. Choices like gorgonzola, pepper jack or cheddar, the addition of apple-wood smoked bacon, and a layer of sauteed mushrooms or onions stack this hamburger. When enjoyed in the newly remodeled J-Bar inside the Hotel Jerome, it's hard to find a better experience to sink your teeth into.

3 520 Grill

The subterranean 520 Grill has made a name for itself based on consistently grab-and-go food, and its hamburger is not exception. Stick with the standard beef option, or experiment with a turkey, bison or chicken burger. If that's not enough, go for the B&B option, which also includes bacon. Meat lovers, rejoice.

4 CP Burger

When a restauranteur puts the word burger in its eatery's name, it's got to live up to it. CP Burger, next to the Silver Circle Ice Rink, does. Aspen's successful restaurant kingpins Samantha and Craig Cordts-Pearce are known in the gourmet dinner world, but their foray into burger-and-shake land has also worked for them. Try the chicano burger and cool it down with a boozy milkshake.

5 39 Degrees at the Sky Hotel

Whether it's winter or summer, the 39 Degrees Lounge at the Sky Hotel has a patio that can't be beat, and it's standard operating procedure to order a burger when enjoying it. The premium Creekstone Farms black angus beef, topped with onions, lettuce and mayo in between a fresh bun is a delight with fries or a side salad.
