Burger and a Bun

Pinetop Pimento Cheese Burger at Hopdaddy

Without notice, the gourmet hamburger craze has become a niche foodie favorite in the Valley, with multiple burger-themed restaurants popping up everywhere. Old and new, here are our favorites in both concept and all-around best burger.

Hopdoddy Burger Bar

Built from the ground up, this Texas-based urban burger bar is all about walkin’ in and eatin’ burgers. Cooked to order with the best quality beef, these burgers get built by you. Order, sit and eat. Craft burgers go with craft beer — served at the beer bar. Also eat salads, shakes and fries.
11055 N. Scottsdale Rd., Scottsdale

Giant Hamburgers

Classic and certainly all about the burger. This diner-style joint in Mesa is a place to pull up, eat the best burgers ever and go away very happy. Hamburger, cheeseburger and few additions make this classic spot all about the traditional. Also get breakfast, fries and thick shakes.
2753 E. Broadway, Mesa

The Stand Burgers & Tacos

Yes, burgers and tacos. Go for either as few go for both. The burgers are juicy and grilled with more flavor than one would expect from this small, remodeled shop. Shakes, fries and even a drive-thru make this hot spot a certain convenience for a great burger.
