Sweet & Spicy burger at The Grind
We have to hand it to the burger. Though it is, in theory, a sandwich, this meat monument has managed to become a culinary category all its own with patty spin-offs such as veggie, lamb, turkey, and bison, plus the seemingly endless combination of toppings ranging from the classic (lettuce, tomato, onion, and cheddar) to the contemporary (sauteed veggies, aioli, Gruyere) to the regional (Southwest, Mediterranean, Southern).

So in order to not put too much on your plate, we're sticking to the basics, bringing you our list of the 10 best beef burgers in metro Phoenix.

Sweet and Spicy Burger at The Grind

The sweet and spicy burger at the Grind serves as a tasty testament to the fact that sometimes opposites really do attract. This powerful flavor foil carries out its culinary chemistry with candied jalapeños, spicy ratatouille, and fresh wild arugula on coal-fired beef stacked so high, you'll probably need a fork and knife for backup. Messy as it may be, the Grind signature delivers sweet, spice, and everything nice.

Everyone has his or her own burger preference. Some like it rare. Some like it well done. And some, well, like it hot. For those hot-head hamburger lovers, the go-to grub of choice is the Know Poblano Burger at Rehab Burger Therapy. Piled high with sautéed spicy onions, grilled poblano peppers, and melted manchego cheese on 10 ounces of 100 percent USDA ground chuck, this spicy sandwich does not mess around.

You people need to get out of the East Valley so much. When I want to look up Best of Phoenix, I really don't want to hear about Tempe, Scottsdale, or anyplace outside of Phoenix. The best in Tempe will always be the Chuck Box and in Phoenix, the Original Hamburger Works at 2801 N 15th Ave, Phoenix, AZ, and you didn't bother to mention those. MISTAKE, I won't bother to read this rag's "BEST OF" lists, if I think I am going to be lied to to advertise the restaurants that bribe the editors with free meals.

I wish I could read a burger list without that meatloaf-posing-as-a-burger from Delux on it.

You need to rate the BURGER! Not the condiments or how it's plated

I'm a born and raised Nebraska girl, despite this, it's definitely the Big Whack from Green!! And I'm not even close to vegan. :)

Great list, always been a fan of the burgers at Delux, St. Francis and Zinc, and equally impressed by the omission of the pretentious and hugely overrated Zinburger.

Chelsea's Kitchen Green Chili Burger and the Bison Burger from True Food Kitchen are missing from that list...

Chelsea's Kitchen uses only Strauss grass fed beef and grinds it fresh through out the day. Try the Green Chili Burger!
