Though hard-partying tortillas get one day in May to toss guacamole confetti, paint the town salsa, and revel in salt-rimmed glory, the humble hamburger gets to carry the party torch throughout the entire month.

CityGrille has won tens of awards for many of its menu items, including Best Colorado-Style Green Chile from Westword, "Best in Town" awards from the Rocky Mountain News, and the Best Standby Burger from 5280. Yelpers and Citysearchers give CityGrille 3.5 stars:
- While this hometown version might be considered blasphemy in Hatch country, at least CityGrille's kitchen is blaspheming with gusto, turning out a green chile that's roundly flavored, hot, sweet, almost creamy and totally porkerific. Poured over an order of fries, this verde reaches addictive levels that border on narcotic. – Westword
- …while those burgers are highly decorated, with "best in town" awards from the Rocky, the Post, Westword and even USA Today, it's the smooth, smoky tones of the green chili that light our fire. If there's a better version in the Mile High, we'd really appreciate a heads-up ASAP. – Doug Wagner, Rocky Mountain News
- Just a good, solid burger on a ciabatta roll with a side of grilled onions—all served to you, if you're lucky, by a Harley-sassy waitress. – 5280
- We ordered Steak Burgers.. oh so delicious! Good quality meat. The buns that they use are top notch; hearty and thick. I'd read reviews in the paper that they serve the best burgers in Denver. CORRECT! – peachburrito, Citysearch
