— For some of the best burgers — and handcut fries and onion rings — in the ‘Boat, head to Back Door Grill at 825 Oak St.

Serving up mouth-watering, all-natural Colorado beef burgers for dine-in or to go, Steamboat’s newest hamburger emporium is the work of Brandi and David Eliason, who bring years of expertise to every succulent bite.

Its edgy burgers are what set it apart, as well as its classic burgers for those with a hankering for a more traditional taste. For burgers, choose from such classics as the double bacon cheeseburger and Make Mine a Triple to such new school options as the Teryaki Mahalo with pineapple and Swiss cheese and the Twilight Zone with cheddar, bacon, creamy Sriracha and peanut butter (yes, peanut butter). It also offers a new special every week that keeps patrons guessing and coming back for more. Cheeseburger on a glazed doughnut, anyone?

For sides, it serves up a full array of hand-cut fries (try the Philly Cheese or Lucky Spuds) as well as salads, soups, vegetarian offerings and adventure-fueling breakfast items like its Burgerito Burrito or Happy Hangover sandwich.

It all boils down to a passion for fresh, natural ingredients and a love of old-fashioned, all-natural Colorado beef burgers and brews, manifested in everything that comes out of the kitchen.
