No matter where you're at, these are burgers worth the trip. Be sure to share your favorite in the comments section.
4. Cheeseburger at Christopher's
While award-winning chef Christopher Gross is best known for his culinary command of French cuisine, the man responsible for Christopher's and Crush Lounge in Central Phoenix can also make a damn fine hamburger. Start with the eight-ounce patty of perfectly-prepared Angus chuck, then choose from toppings of Gruyére, Mimolette, cheddar, or blue cheese, mushrooms, shallots, and crispy bacon on a soft, delicate bun for a flavor-packed sensation that's anything but a "cheeseburger."
