I don’t make it a habit of ordering cheeseburgers at Mexican joints. But for Crystal Park Cantina, I’ll make an exception.
The Cantina Burger ($14) is exceptional. At the upscale, hideaway Manitou Springs establishment (178 Crystal Park Road), a generous, organic patty meets gooey jalapeno-cilantro cheese, caramelized onions, chipotle mayo and cabbage between a hearty, Santa Fe-inspired corn bun.
Quite unlike any other burger you’ll get around here.
