The restaurant was closed after a fire back in November.

You can finally get the burger you deserve.

The Cherry Cricket announced Tuesday that it will reopen at 11 a.m. on April 11. This comes after a fire back in November closed the iconic Cherry Creek area restaurant for months.

In a news release, the restaurant’s co-owner Lee Driscoll said the Cricket has been “brought back to its original state” and that they “didn’t let any fancy restaurant designers anywhere near it.”

They did spruce up the restrooms, which Driscoll says “we don’t imagine anyone will complain about.”
