This James Beard Winner-led Colorado Burger Joint Looks Like a ‘Must Eat’
It's one of America's favorite foods, meeting one of America's most common first names. Are you ready to dive into some of the most mouth-watering burgers you've ever had?
These guys like to keep it simple, too. They have four burgers and a couple of sandwiches, and you can get a Wagyu beef dog. It doesn't have to be complicated to be delicious, apparently.
Don't be surprised if you haven't heard of Johnny Good Burger. These guys are still new to the scene but bring a lot of culinary experience to the table. You'll want to get in the car to get to their only Colorado location, with Colorado being their home state.
In Arvada, just about an hour from Fort Collins, you'll find a newish "food hall," Freedom Street Social. It opened in the summer of 2022, so not many really know of it yet or the restaurants inside.
Plan on going, grabbing your burger at Johnny's and then a craft beer that you'll find in the food hall, and taking a seat at one of the community tables. These spots are fun; adding a Colorado-based burger joint (based in Arvada) is an added win.
The man behind the food is a James Beard Award-winning chef, who you may have seen win on Bravo's "Top Chef." His name is Paul Qui. Qui has opened up more than a few restaurants over the last few years, including this Colorado burger joint.
Qui's partner is an investor named Johnny Hoang.
There is also a Johnny Good Burger in a food hall in Houston; luckily, we'll have one in the Fort Collins area. I think we'll have to get a food hall first.
