Central Phoenix will have a new place for gourmet burgers and beers as of 11 a.m. today when Hopdoddy Burger Bar opens its doors at 2033 East Camelback Road, inside the Town & Country shopping center on the southeast corner of Camelback Road and 20th Street.
This is the second metro Phoenix counter-service burger spot from the Austin-based owners of Roaring Fork and Salty Sow. The Valley's first Hopdoddy Burger Bar opened at 11055 North Scottsdale Road in October 2013.
Known for serving all-natural, gourmet burgers, the restaurant offers a menu of more than a dozen burgers made with everything from sushi-grade tuna and honey wasabi to Angus beef, kimchi, and braised Beeler's Pure Pork Belly. The restaurant also offers salads, fries, and shakes, as well as beer, cocktails, and wine.
Hopdoddy is the latest in a string of fast-casual burger joints to open around the Valley, and specifically in the Camelback Corridor. On Friday, the highly anticipated first metro Phoenix location of Shake Shake will open at Scottsdale Fashion Square, some 40 blocks east of Hopdoddy on Camelback Road, and later this year, California-based burger chain In-N-Out will open a restaurant just across the street at the Camelback Colonnade shopping center.
