We asked where to go for soup or sandwich the day we arrived in Breckenridge and were steered to Empire. This feels like a college/ski bar and has paint on the floors that shows its wear, but the food is great! I had a very...More

The restaurant has a very rustic look inside and a laid back staff. They serve up a great burger and drink. Prices are great as well!

During our week in Breckenridge to ski it wasn't intentional but we managed to turn our dinners into burger palooza as we ate our way around town. My favorite, hands down, was the green chili cheese burger at Empire. I'm glad my husband wasn't very...More

Simply the best burger in Breck! Bun is outstanding, meat is about as juicy and flavorful as you can make it! Hand cut fries are tasty and plentiful! You can get it many ways, but you know the burger is good when it can just...More
