    Salad lovers will flip over the smoky grilled romaine salad. For dessert, indulge in miniature fried donut rings with warm butterscotch dipping sauce. Named a 2010 Best New Restaurant. Read more

    Start with root beer on tap. The Peppercorn Hamburger is unreal, and save room for the mini donuts and/or bread pudding.

    - Be sure to try the Sweet & Spicy Burger. It's one hell of a burger with epic flavors!

    Sit somewhere that you can't see the HUGE poster of Joe Arpaio staring at you. I get the creeps from that thing.

    If you're a vegetarian, no fear; there's plenty of great eats here for you. The coal-roasted vegetables are a must.

    The burgers are to die for! Tip to eating them: smash down with palm of your hand and cut in half. Don't push too hard because you'll have juicy goodness all over your fingers. :-)

    You'll be lucky if the water is running or DirectTV is on. Beware the Costco patties when vendors aren't happy. This place used to be great but now you're better off going to The Stand.

    The sweet and spicy burger at the Grind serves as a tasty testament to the fact that sometimes opposites really do attract, with candied jalapeños, spicy ratatouille, & arugula on coal-fired beef. Read more

    They make a great gin gimlet (only $3.50 at happy hour) and the BBQ pork sandwich is addicting!

    Amber Huntley-Ruiz · May 28, 2011

    CANDIED JALAPENOS - nothing more to say!

    I am not a dessert person, but I would skip eating for a day just to have these donuts!!! They melt in your mouth - but beware because the kitchen closes early, so don't expect getting these too late!

    Terrible service. Waiter pretty much ignored us. He kept disappearing.

    The secret to the burgers is their coal-fired ovens: their website says they're "the first restaurant in the United States to utilize custom coal-fired ovens that cook at over 1,000 degrees."

    Completely disorganized, from the moment we walked in. Forgot that the door was locked, didn't open on time. No mushrooms for their mushroom burger. Food was overly salty when it came. Never again

    The bread pudding was really good! Always get the doughnuts

    Veronica N. · December 18, 2012

    The 5 doughnuts and salted caramel sauce were delicious. But the doughnuts were about 2 inches wide.

    Food was ok. It took asking 3 times to get my side salad which was delivered after my burger. Service was uneven bartender was fine but the food runner was on the moon. Go to Fez or De-Lux.

    Onion rings were bland, good burger but not a $12 one. Nice neighborhood, a little too smokey inside.

    M Murillo · September 16, 2012

    Try the malted shakes. So good.

    Zach Lind · May 27, 2012

    Try the Steakhouse Blt Burger - Yummy! No need for the iceberg lettuce though. Barely fits in your mouth as is...
