Sweet & Spicy burger at The Grind
We have to hand it to the burger. Though it is, in theory, a sandwich, this meat monument has managed to become a culinary category all its own with patty spin-offs such as veggie, lamb, turkey, and bison, plus the seemingly endless combination of toppings ranging from the classic (lettuce, tomato, onion, and cheddar) to the contemporary (sauteed veggies, aioli, Gruyere) to the regional (Southwest, Mediterranean, Southern).
So in order to not put too much on your plate, we're sticking to the basics, bringing you our list of the 10 best beef burgers in metro Phoenix.
