Gourmet Burger Eatery Beefs Up Gilbert’s Heritage District with New Store
Zinburger brings premium burgers, decadent sides, mouthwatering milkshakes and perfectly paired beverages to Gilbert, Oct. 27
GILBERT, Ariz. (September 25, 2014) – Zinburger Wine & Burger Bar, an award-winning gourmet burger restaurant and wine bar from Fox Restaurant Concepts, will bring its first East Valley location to Gilbert’s Heritage Marketplace on Monday, Oct. 27. Located in the heart of Gilbert’s downtown historical district at the northwest corner of Gilbert Road and Vaughn Ave., Zinburger will feature its famous master-crafted burgers, fresh sides and salads, decadent milkshakes and perfectly paired wines and craft beers.
“We’re looking forward to bringing Zinburger to our guests who live in the East Valley,” said founder Sam Fox. “Gilbert is a family-friendly town with a growing dining scene we are thankful to be a part of; we feel like it’s a great fit for Zinburger’s food, hospitality and energy.”
From traditional to one-of-a-kind preparations, Zinburger’s menu encompasses 17 mouth-watering burger combinations and the option for diners to craft their own specialty burger. All beef burgers begin with a freshly ground patty of premium Certified Angus Beef or American-style Kobe Beef grilled to perfection on a flat-top griddle to lock in the juices. One burger that’s sure to impress is the restaurant’s namesake sandwich: the Zinburger. Topped with manchego cheese and a heaping portion of onions that have been braised in a zinfandel and honey reduction, this burger rules.
The menu also includes several beefless burgers and salads plus an array of sharable sides including classic hand-cut or smothered green chili fries. Zinburger’s sweeter side features thick and creamy hand-dipped milkshakes in flavors like salted caramel, Butterfinger and banana royale.
Beer and burgers are a favorite, but a great wine and burgers makes it interesting. Zinburger’s wine list is comprised of nearly 20 modestly prices varietals ranging from refreshing California chardonnays to red meat-friendly cabernets and zinfandels. Additionally, guests will find an ample selection of beers and microbrews available on tap or by the bottle, and a custom cocktail list.
The 5,600 sq.-foot restaurant and patio seats 197 people and is reminiscent of a farmhouse with high, open ceilings. Zinburger’s décor is minimalistic, and playful, featuring earth tones, light polished wood, steel fixtures and comfortable, stylish seating. Energy is everywhere with images of a bright pasture and pops of unexpected color.
In preparation for the opening, Zinburger will be hiring approximately 70 new positions. A job fair is being held Sept. 29 – Oct. 4 and Oct. 6 – 11 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the new location each day.
The original Zinburger opened in Tucson in the winter of 2007 followed by a second Tucson location in 2011. The contemporary burger spot was brought to Biltmore Fashion Park in Phoenix in the spring of 2010 and to Scottsdale Quarter in the spring of 2014.
Zinburger will offer lunch and dinner daily, along with happy hour specials on weekdays. The new location will be located at 344 N. Gilbert Road, Gilbert. For more information about Zinburger, visit www.zinburgeraz.com.
