10 Underrated Restaurants in Metro Phoenix

Melt Other ice cream places with more stylish digs around town tend to get the attention but insiders know Melt on Roosevelt Row has some of the best flavors in town. Located in a cute historic home, this little spot comes courtesy of Jobot owner John Sagasta but serves 20 flavors of Gilbert's Udder Delights (Superstition Farms) ice cream. Our favorites include Fruity Pebbles and Cinnamon but no matter what you order you'll want to get it in one of the housemade waffle cones. The smell is irresistible.

Lenny's Burger Shop Burger don't get cheaper or better than at Lenny's Burgers, a Valley institution that's been serving up classic food in retro style for more than two decades. There are plenty of other fast-casual burger spots that have popped up over the years, but there's a reason Lenny's has such staying power. We love the grilled-to-order patties that you can load up with jalapenos, chili, bacon, and more. And of course no experience is complete without a sweet dessert like one of Lenny's strawberry or banana shakes.
