Today is National Hamburger Day! What?? you say! ;-) Ever since I found that National Recognition Day website, I have found some very quirky and strange national recognition days. It seems every day of the year has some sort of designation and most have more than one. But, since today is the day to celebrate the burger, I thought it would be a perfect opportunity to introduce you to a new "favorite" burger of mine.
This new place is called Hopdoddy Burger Bar and it's the second one to open in the Phoenix Metro area however, it's completely new to me. I had never heard of them before. They advertise sustainably harvested vegetables, fish and hormone free meats and they make all their own condiments and soft drinks.
The dining concept is unique in that you order your burger from a counter service and they then assign you a table and a server. You go to the assigned table and the server takes over from there, bringing you anything you need after that. I've been about six times now since it opened in February and the burgers are consistently good as is the friendly service. As you can see from the top photo, my favorite burger is the one with the poblano chili on it along with bacon, cheese, tomato and lettuce. It's delicious.
Strange name, but great burgers! Happy National Hamburger Day!
