Top 3 Burger Joints in Tucson, Arizona

Below are the top 3 burger joints in Tucson Arizona.

Zinburger Wine & Burger Bar is located at: 1865 E. River Road, Suite 101, just west of N. Campbell Avenue. Although a bit pricey – $8.00-$14.00 per entrée, Zinburger has the best and biggest gourmet burgers – including the bun. Their menu items are made with high quality ingredients, including the beef, cheeses and other toppings. The food is very tasty and juicy and never greasy. If you want to try their house burger, called of course the Zinburger, it is topped with Manchego cheese, braised onions and mayonnaise. The Samburger it topped with maple bacon, american cheese & thousand island dressing. If you want to try a hamburger a bit different than the usual, try their Kobe burger – a Japanese burger, which is a little sweet and garnished with Vermont cheddar cheese, wild mushrooms and mayonnaise. The Kobe burger is their most expensive hamburger. The other burgers on the menu are: a turkey burger, a veggie burger and an original burger which is topped with the usual lettuce, tomato and mayonnaise. Each burger comes with its’ own gourmet toppings but you can add the custom toppings of your choice for an extra $1.00 per topping. In addition to the toppings I’ve mentioned above, those toppings include 4 other different types of cheese including goat cheese, barbeque sauce, jalapenos, roasted peppers and surprisingly to me, fried egg. Fries are purchased separately so while you’re there, also try their delicious zucchini fries and sweet potato chips. End your meal with their out-of-this world desserts such as the crème Brulee, or their black cow float – made with vanilla ice cream and root beer soda. This restaurant also has a full bar and indoor and outdoor seating. Their hours are: Sunday-Thursday: 11:00 A.M.-10:00 P.M.; and Friday & Saturday: 11:00 A.M.-11:00 P.M.

If you really want to be very full after you eat, or too full to finish, try their Chef Mattie’s Monkey burger, which is topped with cheddar cheese and swiss cheese, roasted poblano peppers, sautéed mushrooms and onions, lettuce, tomato and bacon. The top of the bun can hardly stay on above all those toppings. The bacon and pickle slices are huge. Another interesting burger of their’s is the Vegas Baby burger.

Although they are fast food don’t let that scare you away. They have excellent burgers and their prices are extremely reasonable for such a great burger. I first was introduced to In-N-Out Burger on vacation in San Francisco, California and what I was first told was that their burgers are fresh – compared to the frozen ones at other fast food restaurants. I was so surprised when I tasted one, as all I could think of was “a fast food burger.” It really was different and so much better. All of their menu items are fresh and high quality, including their French fries and buns. They use 100% pure beef in their burgers and your burger is grilled after you place your order. None of their menu items are ever previously frozen, or prepackaged and nothing is microwaved. They sell 3 different types of burgers: a regular hamburger, a cheeseburger and a double hamburger which has 2 hamburger patties and 2 slices of cheese. All their hamburgers come with lettuce, tomato and a dressing and you can order one with, or without onions. All of their burgers are priced under $4.00. While you are there, enjoy one of their shakes which is made with real ice cream. They are open: Sunday – Thursday: 10:30 A.M.-1:00 A.M.; and Friday & Saturday: 10:30 A.M.-1:30 A.M. They have drive-thru service available. Their toll free telephone number is: 1-800-786-1000.
