Lucky's in STM, nice idea, disappointing burger

On the way back to the office at lunchtime I decided to try Lucky's. near Telluride. Walked in and I had to smile, a true throwback to Happy Days and I was looking for the Fonz and Richie Cunningham. Decided to try a bacon cheeseburger.
Well the burger was pretty disappointing. Instead of a hand crafted beauty from the 50's, it was pressed into a 1/2" flat patty. The meat was fairly tasteless. The brioche was wonderful, sweet and tasty.
Has anybody else been here?
I agree that the food's just okay (though my burgers have been better than what you describe), but it's a fun place to visit when the burger/fries/milkshake urge hits. The shakes are quite good, served in one of those tall metal shakers with enough to refill your glass more than halfway. The jukebox selections are a kick, too.
Yes, I've been to Lucky's on numerous occasions and I share your feelings on the burger. Much better is the Fried Chicken and the Cobb Salad w/ balsamic viniagrette is also delicious. Great shakes, nice cheese fries and old school Cherry Cokes add up to a pretty good "give-in-to-your-cravings" meal, especially for the price.
Lucky's is basically a glorified Johnny Rockets with better food and great selections on the jukebox. It's not going to win any Culinary Awards of Distinction, but it's the only place of it's kind in the area...& are extremely busy because the formula seems to work. In fact, they probably put Pat's Hubba Hubba out of business.
