A New Level of Custom Burgers at BluBurger Grille

Making its way into the custom burger scene in Arizona is a place called the BluBurger Grille. Similar to places like the Counter in California, BluBurger gives you a list of burger styles and loads of toppings available for them. BluBurger, however, takes customization to a new level.

Rather than restricting itself to one beef burger option, BluBurger has pulled out the stops by offering Kobe Beef (which I can only assume is actually Kobe-style beef) and Bison. Since I typically love me some buffalo, I ordered that with sharp cheddar and BBQ sauce. Adding anything else would have masked the flavor of the buffalo, so I kept my burger pretty simple. There were less options for toppings than at the Counter, but I think offering more meat more than made up for it. Also, the burger came with a side, which the Counter doesn’t include. For my side, I chose the skinny fries.

Having recently had a bad bison burger experience at the Library in Santa Monica, I was eager to replace that memory with a better one. When my burger arrived, I knew this burger would not be comparable to my bad experience. The patty was big and juicy, with just enough cheese and BBQ sauce. I bit in and was very happy with the taste. This place really knew how to cook up some bison. The fries were pretty decent, albeit small and a bit on the salty side. Luckily, the burger captured my attention for the meal and I didn’t really need to worry about the fries.

I was very happy to be reacquainted with my neglected bison friend. BluBurger is definitely a place worth seeking out in Arizona for some good ground meat on a bun.
