Nestled between Warren and Central Avenues on 17th Street, 2 Doors Down resides as the product of 27 year veteran restaurateur owner/chef Jerry Inniss. Having managed four other facilities, it was time to open his own establishment, because according to Jerry, “Cheyenne needed a good burger”. Despite the growth of corporate burger bars, his observation was vindicated with the near immediate capacity crowds from day one on May 6, 2009.
The main dining area is deep, stretching about 60 feet to the far wall, and accommodates straight back wooden chairs at classic diner tables. The loft, over the back half of the main floor, is more sophisticated, quieter, with a few video games, stuffed chairs and couches. The ambient light is about half that of the main floor, and very comfortable.
A select menu of 15 different hamburgers, 6 different salads, 8 appetizers, soda fountain, and full liquor license, 2 Doors Down concentrates on quality and service. The hamburger is pure Angus beef, blended to Jerry’s specifications, and delivered fresh (never frozen) daily. Service is “fast and efficient”, beginning with your entry into the restaurant. As you walk from the doors to the main counter, you can review the menu above the register, and place your order there. You are given a number card and plastic tumblers for your drinks, which can be filled at the fountain nearby. Once you find a table, your number card goes in the waiting holder, and an always pleasant server brings the order to you, with a never ending supply of steak fries.
Burger selections include the Mushroom Swiss, a Salmon Burger, a Peppercorn Burger, and an Italian Burger. Salads boast a Crispy Chicken, Southwest Chicken, Taco, and Shrimp, plus, there in a modest selection of sides, and a small Children’s Menu. Additional platters are also being added to the menu, including Fish & Chips, a Tuna Steak, and a Philly Steak sandwich.
Owner Jerry Inniss keeps a high profile and a ready smile. Very personable, he’s always easily locatable, if not here, then just two doors down at his other restaurant, Pizzeria Venti.
