“The California burger was outstanding as are the salt and vinegar fries. Some of the best fries I think I've ever tasted. The hand cut wings were quite good as well. The look of the place inside is modern/hip, clean, and brings to mind places like the Yard with a pinch of Zinburger.” - Yelp Review

Over 4,320 dinner options are available at Burger Theory thanks to their create-your-own menu. You can either order your burger on a potato bun or lettuce wrap along with a side of fries or coleslaw. For an additional charge, you can substitute onion rings or a house salad as your side.

“The veggie burger was nothing short of amazing. It was cooked just right and had tons of seasoning — so yummy! The cheese made everything pop and I could just go on eating, but my stomach made me stop. The fries were also amazing with a nice hint of salt and crispness! I could've made a meal just out of the fries!” - Yelp Review

Johnny’s Burgers & Dogs has served as a staple in Tempe for years. From its signature cheese fries to its delicious chili burger, this restaurant has everything you could possibly want to fill yourself up. All of their ⅓ pound burgers are hand made with lean USDA beef, topped with the restaurant’s special homemade sauce, and served on a toasted sesame seed bun. The Beyond Burger is also available for vegans and is served on a 100% vegan plant-based patty. All the fixings of a regular burger are included as well.
“The burgers here slap. I'm not usually a fan of the smash burger style but it was good. We're talking charry USDA lean beef, thick crunchy pickles, the veggie salad stuff, a healthy shmear of housemade signature sauce, and cheese. So much cheese. And the chili cheese fries... so good! Easily the best part of the meal.” - Yelp Review

“I loved our take-out experience at Rehab Burger! Everyone at the restaurant was so sweet and probably said thank you a million times. The burgers were all amazing! We had the Spicy Mac and Cheese and the Philly Burger. The Mac and Cheese was my favorite, I paired it with the onion rings and it was a match made in carb heaven.” - Yelp Review

Hopdoddy Burger Bar offers a wide selection of burgers, fries, and salads. So much so, that it can be difficult to choose just one burger. Take these popular options for example. The Magic Shroom features Texas goat cheese, field mushrooms, and onion. Topped with steakhouse bacon and avocado, the Thunderbird is also a popular and savory option for guests. For something a little more upscale, we recommend the Ahi Tuna burger. The sushi-grade tuna patty pairs well with the teriyaki, honey wasabi, and pickled ginger.
“Offerings are diverse enough that there is something for everyone. The burgers are large, easily 1.5 if not 2 meal portions. The kid’s menu is realistic. The Parmesan Truffle Fries are DELICIOUS, particularly with the dip which we nearly run out of every time.” - Yelp Review

Our food was ready, hot and we knew who had what without having to open up each container because they labeled all of the food for us!” - Yelp Review
