​There must be some sort of burger vortex in this town, since three of the four spots chosen by Chow Bella contributors as serving our favorite burgers in metro PHX are located within a few blocks of one another. 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."

. Veggie Burger at Hillstone

Considering most veggie burgers have the taste of cardboard and the texture of mealy, overcooked rice, we were shocked to discover that Hillstone offers a meatless burger that's juicy, plump and tastes as good as the real thing. The combination of black beans, brown rice and oat bran together with the well-balanced sauce makes for a savory - albeit messy - Sloppy Joe style burger, and the gooey melted Jack cheese gives a salty finish that adds dimension to the sweet, soy-based sauce.
