ZinBurger – The Perfect Spot to Celebrate National Burger Month

May is National Burger Month and as a way to celebrate this most American dish, Fox Restaurant Concepts is having a contest, called ZinfullMoment at their ZinBurger restaurants.

Zin Burger fans are encouraged to post their favorite Zinful Moment on either Instagram or Facebook for the chance to win a year’s worth of Zinburger ($600 gift card).

Zinburger has some of the best burgers in town. They come with all manner of toppings but unlike many burger joints, at Zin the varied toppings enhance the meat rather that dominate it. The specially made buns are both soft and sturdy. And the wine list is legendary. (Kids of all ages like the many shakes they have, too.)

In celebration of National Burger Month, Karyn Zoldan of Circle of Food, Edie Jarolim of Tucson Guide and I were invited to sample some of ZinBurger’s finest.

We’d barely sat down when a smiling young server arrived making sure all was right in our little corner of the world. I ordered a Pinot Noir,DSCN2240 Karyn ordered a Zinfandel and Edie opted for the Bacon Bloody, a bacon-infused Bloody Mary.DSCN2242

We’d pretty much decided to order the zucchini fries and the spicy green chile fries when the manager, Jordan, brought a heaping pile of the Loaded Fries to the table. Hand-cut potatoes were fried to a golden brown and then topped with cheese sauce, sour cream, Applewood smoked bacon and chives.DSCN2243 We eat at Zin often but I’ve never ordered these fries…..my mistake. They were heavenly – sort of poutinelike – but better. We almost forgot we were there for the burgers.

Karyn ordered the Blanco Burger (pepper jack cheese, pico de gallo, guacamole, lettuce and chipotle mayo which she skipped). DSCN2249Edie went uptown with the Kobe Burger (Kobe beef, cheddar cheese, lettuce and mayo which she also opted out of). DSCN2248I ordered the My Boy Blue (Maytag Blue Cheese, caramelized onions, A1 sauce, lettuce and mayo which I stuck with.)DSCN2250

And for good measure we ordered the zucchini fries. DSCN2251They are dusted in Parmesan and are fab. And somewhere in there Jordan brought the featured drink of the summer, a watermelon mojito.DSCN2246

The burgers were delectable; juicy, meaty perfectly seasoned. It’s obvious that all the ingredients are top notch. Fox Restaurant Concepts knows hospitality from the front of the house to the back and ZinBurger is one of their finest.

Time flew – it always does when I eat with these two foodies – and even though we were sated somehow we finished off a monster slice of the rich chocolate cream pie.DSCN2253

As mentioned earlier, I eat at Zinburger often and I recommend you give it a try if you haven’t already.
