If we had to pick a favorite Fox Restaurant Concept, it might very well be Zinburger that takes the prize. The five-restaurant chain hits the nail on the head with reliably friendly service and a menu of modern burger creations always made with certified Angus Beef -- or better.
So that's why we're saying congrats, Gilbert! You're the latest 'burb to get your very own Zinburger. As of earlier this week the restaurant's location at Heritage Marketplace in downtown Gilbert is open for business.

The restaurant serves a selection of burgers, salads, sandwiches, and sides made with ingredients such as fried eggs, Maytag bleu cheese, roasted poblano peppers, and applewood smoked bacon. When it comes to sides you can expect gussied up spicy green chile and double truffle fries, as well as "healthy" options such as zucchini fries, cottage cheese, and cole slaw.
And the restaurant's shakes are almost as popular as the savory offerings. They include some unexpected flavors such as Nutella Hazelnut Crunch, Salted Caramel, and Latte.
Zinburger is the first of several new dining destinations to open at Heritage Marketplace. The restaurant will soon be joined by a new outlet of LoLo's Chicken and Waffles. Later down the line there will also be a new Barrio Queen restaurant and a third location of Pomo Pizzeria.
There are two other Zinburgers in metro Phoenix; one at the Biltmore Fashion Park and one at Scottsdale Quarter.
