Stopped here one afternoon for lunch. Good burgers and rings.Just what I was looking for on a less than ideal ski day.

Don't be distracted by the name. The menu is extensive. I had a turkey burger which was good and not all restaurants can cook these to taste great. I recommend the onion rings. Minimal batter and lots of onion. Great service.

The guacamole bacon burger was not great. Maybe we caught them on a bad day, but the bacon was barely cooked and the beef had zero flavor. I was also surprised to find the $11 burger didn't come with fries. The chicken tenders tasted frozen. I was really sad as I was looking forward to eating here.

Perfect casual restaurant for our family's last night in Breckenridge. We had the baked potato soup, wings, burgers, fries and fish tacos. All the food was excellent and more than we could finish. Service was also very good. We will go back the next time we are in town.

The food is great and they give you a large portion. The location is walking distance to the slopes and the service was a 9 out of 10.

Second time we have been here. The food was good both times. The service was terrible our second visit. Entrees were delivered at two different times about 15 minutes apart. Server was not very nice and had tons of attitude. Clearly way too cool for her job.

Highly recommend eating here!! Everybody in my family loved their burger, and I had an amazing BLT with tons of crispy bacon (there was so much I didn't even eat it all). The fries were awesome too!!

Everything tastes good and the atmosphere is really great. I asked for medium rare and got medium--but it was yummy. I could only eat half the burger but my teen polished off his. We got the loaded fries which were pretty good, but we barely made a dent in those. These are the best burgers we've had on this trip... More

Empire burger has a good variety of burgers. The burger and bun tasted fresh. Burgers do not come with fries, lame. My wife, my son and I split a basket with three different sauces. The Sweet Mango Chutney sauce is amazing followed by the Sriracha Mayo and the Blue Cheese. They had a couple of good beers. The place will... More
