Where do you think the best burger in Phoenix is?
My favorite burger is at The Barbecue Company located in an industrial complex just south of Broadway on
36th St. in Phoenix. Their Southwest burger (1/3 lb. beef [med-well], jack cheese, bacon, green chiles, bbq
sauce, and I always ask for grilled onions) is perfect; meaty, juicy, and more than enough flavor to make those burgers that taste like just meat and cheese seem wholly unacceptable (I hope someone's ears at Islands are burning up right now). One of the thing that distinguishes The BBQ Co from most places is that you can actually get a decent salad (and by decent I mean not Iceberg lettuce) with your burger. I like leafy greens with my meat, just not on it. Their seasoned fries are also really good too in case you were wondering.
The only problem is they're a Monday through Friday, lunch only place which it makes it difficult to feed those burger cravings at night or during the weekend.
My second favorite burger is the bbq, bacon cheeseburger at Tommy's Burger Place on 7th Ave. just north of
Indian School in Phoenix. Their fries are great, and completely unique. The problem with Tommy's is their not open very late (like past 8).
Finally, my third favorite burger is the double meat, animal style at In-n-Out Burger. There may not be very
many In-n-Outs, but they are at least open late. I can't say I'm crazy about their fries though, even well done isn't quite crispy enough.
