Perhaps you heard that we have had numerous heat advisories over the past couple weeks. If you did not hear that, surely you felt it. Regardless, we can all agree that it is hot outside. Like super hot. In most cities, summertime means hanging outside, playing games, and of course, throwing some burgers on the grill. But not in Scottsdale in August when it is 120 degrees outside, and the thought of standing over some flames makes you cower in fear. So instead of firing up the grill you look for refuge in some place with air conditioning. But you still want to enjoy that summertime burger; you still crave that deliciousness. However, you also know that you are a master griller so you can’t just go to old any place for a burger. If you aren’t going to grill it yourself, it better be good. But where do you go? Well, my friends, once again we at are here to help and cure your summertime burger blues. Here is our list of the best burgers in Scottsdale that you don’t have to grill yourself, and you can enjoy in some nice cold air conditioning. Enjoy and stay cool out there!

Here is our list:

Rehab Burger Therapy

Why they serve the best burgers in Scottsdale: As you know, Rehab was our first ever video review, so it will always hold a special spot in our hearts. However, it makes this list completely on its own merits. When they say that you need to CHECK IN for some Rehab they mean it. Their burgers are therapy. We highly, I mean highly recommend trying the Backyard BBQ Burger. Topical right?! This burger is a creation from Chef Ken that he created during one of his backyard BBQ bonanzas. Topped with onion rings, Colby jack and spicy pineapple BBQ sauce.

Zinburger – Scottsdale Quarter

Why they serve the best burgers in Scottsdale: Zinburger is not only one of our favorites it is also our video review special guest star Ryan Bader‘s personal favorite as well. Zinburger is a great spot to bring the family to escape the heat and enjoy some absolutely tasty burgers. Our pick to try is the My Boy Blue. It comes with Maytag Blue Cheese, A1 Sauce, Caramelized Onions, Lettuce & Mayo. How amazing does that sound?

Hopdoddy – Scottsdale

Why they serve the best burgers in Scottsdale: Come for the burgers, stay for the amazing shakes. We love how this spot is set up. It has the feel of an old school burger joint and they just do it right. Our recommendation is the Good Night/Good Cause. It is Angus Beef, Tillamook Cheddar, Hickory BBQ Sauce, Caramelized Onions, Sliced Jalapeno, Hickory BBQ, Sassy Sauce, Red Leaf Lettuce, Beefsteak Tomato. The bonus and the Good Cause part of it $1 is donated to Alice Cooper’s Solid Rock for every burger sold. So you can enjoy a tasty burger for a good cause.


Why they serve the best burgers in Scottsdale: Although, Delux is technically not in Scottsdale it is in the vicinity of Scottsdale, and it makes the list for its ridiculously good burgers. We recommend the namesake, the Delux Burger; it is fresh ground, all-natural, grain fed, Niman Ranch certified premium beef, garnished with our signature infusion of caramelized onion & small bits of applewood smoked bacon, a blend of gruyere & maytag bleu cheeses & topped with baby arugula. Served on a toasted, handcrafted demi baguette. Bonus, you can get it in a lettuce wrap upon request.

Cold Beers & Cheeseburgers – Old Town Scottsdale

Why they serve the best burgers in Scottsdale: Any list about best burgers in Scottsdale to escape the summertime heat has to contain Cold Beers & Cheeseburgers for their name alone. But CBCB’s greatness does not stop at their name, yes; they serve ice cold beers and of course, cheeseburgers but after taking one look at their menu you will see that they are so much more. Our burger pick here is the Bacon PB&J Burger, we are talking bacon, we are talking peanut butter, jelly, cheddar, and chipotle sauce. It may sound a little crazy but trust us. It is amazing and the perfect cure for your summertime blues.

ZuZu at Hotel Valley Ho

Why they serve the best burgers in Scottsdale: A late addition to the list but a welcome one as ZuZu, located inside the hip Hotel Valley Ho in Downtown Scottsdale has just unveiled a brand-new burger menu. The burgers are ground fresh daily, served on homemade buns. Stop in for lunch or weekend brunch to try these new favorites. Each burger comes with a side of twice-cooked crispy fries, homemade chips or coleslaw. A gluten-free bun can be added for $1. Some choices of burgers are The Famous ZuZu Burger, the Hangover Burger, a PB + J Burger or what sounds amazing is the Monster Burger! Check out the complete brand new Burger Menu for the complete list.

I am a food lover, as well as a food fighter. I never underestimate the power of positive thinking. I don't get up before hitting snooze at least three times, and I haven't ever met an order of chips and salsa that I didn't like.
