I have to agree with Supreme Commander JB on this one--waiting hours in line for an In-n-Out burger and fries is absolute lunacy. Then again, I had my fix last week, while passing through Phoenix on my way to the Flagstaff bureau. Funny thing is, as I was sitting in my car with newshound Cricket, I thought to myself: "This is good, but it's not great."
The In-n-Out mania got me thinking: Where can you find the best burger in town? I don't mean to step into Best of Tucson™ territory, but my vote goes to Kingfisher. That's a healthy slab o' meat, topped with bacon, cheddar, gorgonzola, red peppers, green chiles, lettuce, tomato and onion. It's hard to even eat the thing without it, well, getting all over the place. I usually ask for the man fries instead of those little lady fries that normally accompany it. It ain't healthy, but it is sensational--and it takes a lot less than two hours to get it.
What's your pick?
