KW’s Smoked Brisket Burger is an absolute must-have. The brisket and burger combo — with thick-cut bacon, burnt tomato jam on a brioche bun — is pure genius and one of the most creative burgers I’ve ever consumed.

Kitchen West is located at the Scottsdale Resort at McCormick Ranch.

It’s not surprising the Ivan continues to make the best of list. One of the juiciest char-grilled burgers you have ever encountered on bakery-fresh pretzel bun served with crisp spring mix, tomato, onion and chipotle mayo and your choice of cheese.

Made with Niman Ranch (known for all-natural meats raised by small family farmers committed to sustainable and humane practices) beef, caramelized onion, Applewood smoked bacon, gruyere and Maytag bleu cheese with baby arugula on a demi baguette.

Bite by bite, the flavors of the Delux Burger seem to magically unfold and melt in your mouth.

This Arizona classic cooks their burgers over mesquite charcoal ,which is the main factor in this place’s distinctive taste.

Customizing my delicious burger with the many toppings in the rustic/dive environment makes the overall experience a favorite of mine.

This old-school joint has been around since 1951 and is serving up classic burgers that have a distinct taste from yesteryear.

Every person I have sent to Lucky Boy have not only loved it but say it tastes like their childhood. Is their secret sauce nostalgia?

The turkey burger with smashed avocado, tomato, smoked gouda and jalapeño remoulade on a flax seed bun is anything but dull. It is one of the tastiest burgers (turkey or non-turkey) I’ve ever encountered.

They have not only perfected the flavoring but have kept it juicy. My meat-loving dad is even a fan!

My vegetarian friends kept raving about the black bean burger and I finally had to try it for myself.

It’s freaking delicious. With cashews, poblano peppers, lettuce, tomato, pickle and house-made vegan nut cheese, this is hands down the best plant burger around!

Found under the specialty burgers category on the menu, the Burger Brulee comes with a fried egg, bacon, onion, burnt sugar and Havarti cheese.

I’m not ashamed to say I consumed dozens of these mouthwatering delights during my pregnancy and many more since.

This “dive” serves up mesquite-broiled hamburgers cooked over an open flame that you can see in plain view as you order. Half the fun is loading your burger up with condiments at the fixings wagon!
