Coal Burger opens at Scottsdale Quarter
The new fast casual "burgeria," Coal Burger, opened its doors yesterday at Scottsdale Quarter. Rolled out by the group behind Grimaldi's Pizzeria, Coal Burger features natural grass fed beef burgers cooked in a coal fired brick oven (designed like the ovens used in the groups popular pizzerias) and served on a brioche bun.
The menu highlights organic and "naturally grown" ingredients, and includes hormone free and antibiotic free chicken, along with "The Other Coal Burger", a brown rice and black bean patty served on a whole wheat bun. Gluten free buns or lettuce wraps are offered as a substitution.
Besides the coal-fired patties, signature salads with gluten free house made dressings are also offered. The usual sides of sweet potato fries, seasoned fries, and onion rings are fried in rice bran oil (high in antioxidants).
Tri-state natives will recognize Boylan's soda fountain flavors, made with pure cane sugar, on the beverage side of the menu. Adding an interesting twist, the shakes and floats are made with gelato. The beer is organic and wines are biodynamic, carrying through the "food matters, ingredients matter more" thought behind the menu.
Prices range from $4.95 to $7.95 for burgers and signature salads. The sides are $2 to $3, with an extra $.50 for dipping sauces. A Chandler location is in the works at Casa Paloma, as well as expansion plans in Texas and Florida.
