Wolfing down a gigantic burger can be a lot like a one-night stand: fun at first, then full of self-loathing and regret.
Rehab Burger Therapy in Old Town Scottsdale does not believe in one-night stands -- at least, not half the time. Each one of its 10-ounce Rehab burgers is available in a more manageable five-ounce option called a Relapse.
Good idea? Great idea.
It's what you might expect from three ex-Oregano's execs who started this tasty little burger joint in Old Town Scottsdale a few months ago. But that's not all they've got to offer.
Here's an excerpt from this week's review:
"And Chef Likewise (or simply Ken, as the servers call him) not only has a knack for flavorful barbecue sauces, but the man knows his way around a pot of chili as well. His deliciously meaty and well-seasoned four-bean and beef creation with a long-lasting and even heat can be had atop fries or a gourmet burger, but I prefer it as the guilty pleasure called Chili con Fritos. In a large bowl, a splayed, snack-size bag of Fritos acts as a glossy placemat for spoonfuls of chili poured over the popular crunchy corn chips. Topped with melted shredded cheese, a few squirts of sour cream, and bits of tomatoes, this party-minded dish, listed in the sandwich and burger section, eats better as an appetizer with friends than as a single order. (They'd probably be stealing forkfuls of it from you, anyway.)"
