I love Merle’s of Littleton for various reasons. Merle’s of Littleton is located in Old, Historic Littleton, Colorado. All of the shops and restaurants in Historic Littleton, particularly those on Main Street, must adhere to strict architectural standards when it comes to building renovation. The strict standards help maintain a sense of stepping back in time that lends a nostalgic atmosphere. Merles of Littleton is no exception.
Merle’s of Littleton is a burger joint that is housed in what used to be a a gas station and garage that was built in the 1930s. It still has the original sliding garage doors that open up to create open air seating in good weather months. The automotive theme is evident throughout the restaurant with not only the original garage doors, but vintage signage as well. It opened in 2008 and has maintained a booming business ever since. It also has rooftop and private seating areas,which makes it a great place for private events and parties.
