I really enjoyed our dinner at Tag. The place is tucked in and easy to miss and parking is tight, but worth the effort. We made reservations due to the multiple mentions of how packed e place can get.
Our burgers were all served quickly and were insanely delicious! They were each cooked the way we requested and I love any place that'll still do a burger pink! The serving size was reasonable, I had expected enormous portions, but was pleasantly surprised. We each orders small fries on the side, but could have shared. Between the 4 of us we tried the sweet potato fries the duck fat fries and the regular fries. I had high hopes for the duck fat fries but they fell flat with our group. The regular fries and sweet potato fries were amazing though. I think the over greasiness and over spice on the duck fat fries turned us off. We are all duck eaters...
There is a mixed selection of beers including ales, lagers, pilsners, and IPA styles. What's not to love about a burger and a beer? Service was brisk and efficient. The resturant was very loud and we had to ask repeatedly for our server to repeat himself. We were also forced to kind of yell to understand each other throughout the meal. There is a patio that was quieter that I would request if we go again. It also seemed like the patio was dog friendly which I wish I had known as well.
Tag Burger Bar is a great spot in the Congress Park neighborhood.
It feels comfortable when you come inside, and they have a nice patio that will be great once the weather warms up a bit. Theres a few tvs and a long bar which looks like it could be a relaxing spot to watch some sports. I had the regular burger and my boyfriend had the bison burger. They were cooked to our liking and tasted good. We both loved the fries the most. Their regular fries are thin and crispy and you get a big serving for their large serving. The sweet potato fries are great as well. The duck fat fries were a little too oily for my taste but my boyfriend loved them. Also, be sure to check out their house made pickles, they are excellent and very flavorful. Service has been good everytime I've been there.
Solid burger joint and would give it 3.5 stars. Staff was great. I would recommend making a reservation. Burgers were good as were the happy hour prices. Tried the duck fat fries and they were ok but tasted like sweet potato impostors. The actual sweet potato fries however were excellent; I can't recall having better. The kimchi was over-hyped - I liked it but didn't love it - cabbage drowned in Sriracha sauce.
Overall this is a good place to go if you're in the neighborhood but nothing I'd go out of your way for.
Great spot for burger, beers and fries. What more do you need?
We grabbed a bite here before catching a show at the Bluebird. There were eight of us so we made a reservation for this Saturday night. Good thing because it was practically full!
As I mentioned, the name of the game here is burgers, but they do have some salads and specials if you don't feel like that (on this particular night, TAG featured beef stroganoff). We started with fried pickle SPEARS with spicy ranch that were addicting. From there, I went with a beef Congress Park burger that featured guacamole, lettuce, tomato and buffalo-style mayo. We also ordered duck fat and sweet potato fries to share. From the classic Old School burger to the more adventurous Blind in Texas, we I didn't hear one complaint from the table.
Can we talk about those duck fat fries? I don't know what's up with Denver and duck fat lately, but I'm all for it. They were kind of sweet, yet greasy and delicious. Classic sweet potato fries also hit the spot with local Elevation ketchup.
The service got us in and out in the right amount of time. It was really one of those perfect meals where you didn't have to worry about what was going on around you and instead, could just enjoy catching up with old friends.
My biggest regret? I was simply too full for the fried Oreos. Next time...
Met another couple for dinner last Friday. Everyone but me loved their burgers. Mine was mucho average. We had Old school and sweet potato fries. Both were good, not exceptional. The staff were quit friend ly. Exceptionally loud and we were seated at the booth right off the front door...brrrrrr. We live out in the burbs, but would definitely head down again .
For my first visit here, I have to say that I'm thoroughly impressed. The bison burger was excellent. The sweet potato fries are some of the best I've had. And they have an excellent selection of all local beers on tap, with very reasonable prices. Will definitely try to come here regularly now.
Tag has some of the best sweet potato fries I have eaten. I don't eat beef so it was nice to see the salmon and turkey options.
But The service wasn't the greatest and we had to wait a long time to order then when we did get our food everyone's came out except my two year olds. It was at least another 5 minutes before my two year olds noodles came out. Overall the place wasn't too bad they just need more servers.
I've been to Tag a couple of times and always enjoyed their food and the ambiance of the restaurant. Their shakes are amazing and their sweet potato fries are the best in Denver in my opinion. The burgers are small but definitely tasty.
Unfortunately the last time I went in (last weekend) I was with my family and we had a very awkward/bad experience with a female bartender. Three of us were waiting at the bar for the rest of the family to show up and ordered a drink, and I think the bartender assumed we were going to be eating at the bar. When we informed her we weren't she gave a very snarky look to us and walked away. By the time our table was ready, the hostess showed us to our table and let us know that we could just transfer our bill to the table, so we did. Five minutes into sitting down at our table, the bartender comes over to our table in a hurry and asks us if we were planning on paying for her bill at the bar. We informed her that the hostess as well as our server said to transfer the bill and so we said okay. She looked at us with extreme disdain and made us all feel very bad for having done this. She then walked off clearly mad at us. In my opinion I do not think this is how customers should be treated. Instead of making the customer feel bad she should speak to her coworkers and inform them that transferring the tab is not ok when shes working.
I'd come back for the food, but I definitely won't be going near the bar if she is working.
Heard about TAG from a friend, and stopped by on a whim for a late lunch/early dinner.
Hubster got the Fish & Chips and I got the Colorado Proud Burger. The Colorado Proud Burger comes with green chile and goat cheese whipped with honey. It was soooo good!! The honey just kind of takes the bite out of the goat cheese and tames it down just a little.
We shared an order of Sweet Potato Fries and they were yummy too.
Even though we were full we couldn't resist ordering Deep Fried Oreos for dessert. So bad, yet so good!!!
TAG wasn't very crowded, I'm sure it's because we went at a weird time of day. We ran into/met Brian Griese while we were there.....cool side note! Have no idea if he's a regular or not.
Our server was great and helpful with suggestions, the ambiance was cool, and the food was great!
This place is delicious! My wife & I enjoyed the service! They also give a nice military discount! I recommend the bison burger with the Colorado style, nothing can compare to the whipped goat cheese mixed with honey! I've never had a burger this unique before. The fries are also good, the old fashion & sweet potato fries! We couldn't leave without trying the fried Oreo dessert. It was so delicious & we got a scoop of vanilla ice cream to make it even sweeter! I'll be back again! Wasn't crowded either! Nicely decorated also!
Worst thing about tag burger: deciding what to have! Seriously it takes me forever to decide each time, but I have yet to be disappointed. Sad that the ménage a tui is off the menu, but there are so many others I like that I'll get over it. Lady Gaga and Colorado proud never disappoint, though I have enjoyed a few others as well.
Love the sweet potato fries... Regular fries are a bit too greasy for me. But like anything else here - as long as you know your palate you will leave happy. Not every burger will taste good to you - they don't play it safe. Know what you like silly complainers ;)
I believe this place is brand new, but you wouldn't know it by the service and the food. This place is a well-oiled machine.
They don't have an ovewhelmingly large menu, but it is still difficult to decide what to order because all of the choices sound delicious. I like that their burgers are a la carte and you order your side separately. I got the beef burger on the regular bun, philly cheesesteak style, where they pile on peppers and onions and velveta, yum! It was delicious!
We did not love the duck fat fries. To me, duck fat fries are supposed to be savory, greasy deliciousness. This place put sugar on them, so they tasted more like sweet potato fries. Not a fan. But, when the server noticed we weren't eating the fries, he asked about them. We brought up the sugar situation and he offered to swap them out for another side, which was super nice and we would have taken him up on it if we weren't completely stuffed from our burgers. He kindly took the fries off the bill. Very cool.
Next time we will have to save room for the milkshake with the Stranahan's Whiskey in it!
Just a great experience here. I highly recommend you check it out.
I was really debating between 3 and 4 stars, but overall we've had positive experiences and will probably return, so I rounded up...
I've been here twice now. The first time, I got the One Night in Bangkok on a bison burger (I think), and it was really tasty, albeit a little stingy on the awesome toppings. There just wasn't enough to really compliment the burger; rather, those extra tasty flavors were a little overwhelmed. If I ordered it again, I'd unabashedly ask for more toppings if needed. Because it was really good. I remember the burger itself being just okay, but overall it was enjoyable. We got a couple plates of fries to share, including sweet potato and duck fat. The duck fat fries - whoa. Really tasty, but so rich and salty - there's no way I could have eaten even a whole small order of these myself.
The most recent visit was last Friday. Hubs and I showed up around 7p and were told there'd be a 30-minute wait. No biggie. We sat at the bar and ordered some drinks and planned to order an appetizer too, when they called our name about 10 minutes later! Score. We sat down and ordered right away, and our food was out in like 8 minutes! So fast!
I got a salmon burger Dock of the Bay style, and hubs got an angus burger Congress Park style. Both were really good. I actually really enjoyed the salmon burger! Not too fishy, and the remoulade really compllimented the salmon. We also shared a large order of the sweet potato fries - which we couldn't even finish! I really enjoy their sweet potato fries.
Overall, a cool place, but I the food is a tad overpriced. The most recent visit was ~$50 (with tip), for 2 beers, a root beer, 2 burgers, and 1 large fries. So, not cheap, and we didn't even really splurge. But, it's down the street from our house, and pretty low key, so we'll likely be back. Even though (I've got to say it), that graffiti wall is absolutely hideous.
Great service, cozy atmosphere, large patio, awesome soundtrack - and I'm not even to the food yet.
I had the Colorado burger which had diced green chiles, goat cheese, and honey on it. It was the perfect combination of savory and sweet.
My boyfriend had a classic cheeseburger which was cooked perfectly.
We shared an order of sweet potato and an order of duck fat fries. O.M.G. I actively dislike potatoes, French fries included, but I loved both of these. The duck fat fries were crispy and were covered in sugar and something with a little spice.
We both had boozy milkshakes. Mine was a vodka/vanilla ice cream/Kahula drink with enough punch to make you tipsy. My boyfriend had the Kentucky Woman which was bourbon, salted Carmel, and strawberry ice cream. You could taste the booze in both but they were great!
This is our new burger spot.
For the record, I preferred the old Madison Grill in terms of menu offerings and decor. I'm pretty disappointed that it's a burger-focused joint now, but I still come here often.
The prices are fair and the location is great. I like the interesting toppings they offer for burgers. I'm a little disappointed in the non-burger selections. The sweet potato fries are delish, though.
It seems lately that it gets pretty crowded, so reservations might be worthwhile (even on a weeknight). Parking can sometimes be a struggle as the lot is very small. Sometimes I just want to drop in for some drinks and appetizers and sit at the bar, but it's usually too crowded unless you show up at noon on a Tuesday. Not that I'm opposed to day drinking, it's just not as convenient...
This is the first Tag restaurant that I am giving 5 stars to. Not because the food is better here than at the regular restaurant or the raw bar but Marty (the general manager) went above and beyond.
I organized a suprise birthday party here for my husband and Marty was so accommadating and great with communicating any problems with me. My husband LOVES the ice cream at Tag so he even got some for us at his burger bar!
The menu is so fun and varied!
Beer, wine, cocktails...they have it.
Food wise: bison burger? Lamb burger, salmon burger, veggie burger, etc!!! They have a variety of toppings to leave you satisfied.
The prices CAN get a bit steep (3 dollars for extras) so don't go all out.
Did I mention they have sweet potato fries, nachos, and MILK SHAKES?
Can't say enough great things about the staff that night. Our group of 18 were left full, tipsy, and uber happy.
Thanks Marty and the team!
