My hubby and I have made it a habit to try many local, non-chain hamburger places in the Phoenix, AZ area…and today we found a new one to try.
It has been opened long enough to have a very loyal following…and we have heard various local celebrities rave. So we decided to go in and check it out.
Located in the area of Phoenix know as Arcadia…it is in a small shopping center and easily missed if you aren’t looking for it. They have a unique concept they call “1000 degrees of seperation”. This comes for the fact that The Grind features the only coal-fired oven of it’s kind in the United States. And they BAKE their burgers in there!
Our server, Monica, was friendly and had a GREAT enthusiasm for The Grind. She had suggestions…but we stuck with ordering a burger. Right before we ordered…we saw one being served to another patron…and decided to split one. THEY ARE HUGE! (you can not see in this picture…but the guys at the bar ordered the HUGE burgers)
The place has a pretty cool ambiance as well. On the masculine side as far as decor and colors…but a welcoming bar and pictures of well known locals prominently displayed.
They also have a well stocked bar and an extensive wine list. The tap beers offer a wide selection as well.
And the burgers are GREAT! Truly….my hubby has tried MANY burger places in Phoenix, AZ…and he could not stop talking about this one.
OK…I know…it does not look that impressive. That is because of his specific order….no tomato, no lettuce…well…you get the idea. But the GIANT grilled onion on a super soft bun was fabulous. I do not know specifically what the sauce was…but it was yummy!
I also liked the herb fries (ordered separate)….and we asked for some of the wing sause for dipping. It had a unique taste that Monica told us was made in house. Different…but pretty good.
As far as cost goes…they are not the most economical burger place in the Phoenix, Az area….but should not be as it is an upscale place with upscale food. (about $10 for burger al la carte).
All in all…I would say give it a try. AND…we were told that the owners are opening a new place right next door. Focusing on one of my favorites…rotisserie chicken. I am looking forward to that!
BTW..Monica works Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday till 5PM. Sit at the bar and let her help you with your order and serve up some good cold beer!
