Scottsdale is full of great places to pop into on the weekend. It's a place that has virtually every type of restaurant your heart and taste buds desire. From Asian cuisine that specializes in noodles and teppanyaki to traditional Mexican food and for the weekenders, a number of happy hour and late night spots to explore.
Featured on this week's list, Cold Beers & Cheeseburgers highlights the rising necessity for good late night food. Appropriately placed in the middle of Old town Scottsdale, CB has capitalized on what we all have known for a very long time: people love burgers and comfort food before, during, and after a night of drinking and wandering from place to place as music guides them.
As the name implies, beers and burgers are the main focal point of this eating establishment, and though the menu has its boundaries, there are a variety of burgers to keep you interested. Most notable, the "Speedy Gonzales Burger," which includes shredded lettuce, pico de gallo, taco sauce, pepper jack cheese, sour cream and nacho chess doritos. Or the "D-Lineman Burger" that is served between two full sized grilled cheese sandwiches.
In addition, the menu space between these two headline-worthy burgers, is full of burgers that offer different tasting ingredients to create unique burgers that hopefully are as memorable as anything you can find in the area. Each burger is paired with your choice of either fries, tater tots, sweet tots, onion rings, side salad or coleslaw.
Naturally, the beer menu is plentiful and broken into three categories of draughts, bottles or cans and features local brews from Four Peaks, Papago and Santan. Plenty of others are on the list as well, and something that separates CB from others is their adult shakes and nostalgic desert. It will take you back to simpler times when finding spare change for the ice cream truck was the hardest part of your day.
The atmosphere is welcoming and inviting as the large patio and high top tables represent superior comfort amongst friends or strangers. Cold Beers & Cheeseburgers is open from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. most nights. And with the NFL season and Fall soon approaching, Cold Beers & Cheeseburgers will continue to grow as a spot to stop by in Old town.
