50Burger is Salida’s favorite place to get lunch and dinner in a fresh, casual atmosphere.  Built to be sustainable with a Colorado flair for flavor, 50Burger serves a chef-driven menu all day, seven days a week.  At the heart of our operation is the hamburger.  We all spent a month researching and sampling dozens of various beef blends and different grinds to find the meatiest, juiciest hamburger possible.  It is made with beef brisket, and ground differently from other burgers to have more texture, with an extremely high “juicy factor.”  This is a four-napkin burger with unbelievable flavor.

The truck sat in a field across the street from Scott’s childhood home on Palmer from the 60’s until 1997. From then Scott had the truck (affectionately named “Walter”) repainted and the seat recovered.; that is the only restoration which has been done.
