The savory new burger features fire roasted jalapenos, fried red & green jalapeno sticks, cream cheese and raspberry jam. Available for a limited time, the new menu item will continue to uphold Good Times' mission of offering fresh, all-natural, hand-crafted food using locally-sourced ingredients to create the tastiest fast food available. Similar to the everyday items on the menu, the Jalapeño Cream Cheese burger will be made with Good Times' humanely raised, steroid-free beef.

"The Jalapeño Cream Cheese Burger is the perfect blend of sweet and spicy ingredients, and a Colorado favorite that you would otherwise only find in an upscale casual dining environment. Using ingredients you won't find at any other fast food restaurant, I believe we have created a true one-of-a-kind menu item," said Nick Biegel, Director of Product Development. "Our LTO offerings are a fun way to incorporate different local produce into our menu items. We're looking forward to seeing if our customers love it as much as we do."

Good Times continues its commitment to quality menu offerings with its completely all-natural protein platform, recently adding all-natural, nitrate-free bacon to the mix. The restaurant chain also recently introduced All Natural Housemade Pickles and Hand Breaded Fried Pickles, which are prepared in small batches by hand daily in each restaurant.

"Our brand position is based on the belief that food should be as fresh as possible, unique and of the highest quality," said Biegel. "Every menu item that we have and will have in the future will be held to that standard in order to give our customer's the best quick service experience possible."
