Few things in life are better than a mouthwatering hamburger accompanied by a cold, creamy milkshake. Zinburger perfects both. From hand-cut zucchini and truffle fries to grass-fed beef and house made veggie burgers, Zinburger elevates this All-American experience by adding flavor and comfort. Our lineup of modestly priced wines complement every style of burger and puts the Zin in Zinburger.

We have been to Zinburger many times and will keep going back for the tasty burgers, fries, chicken sandwiches, and chopped salads. This time was less than perfect as a server rolled his eyes when we asked if there was more comfortable seating anywhere (the chairs are metal with virtually no back support). Not good...we just stayed where we were despite plenty of empty seating along the side of the restaurant with cushions. The noise level is always high but this time was off the charts with people at the bar almost yelling to be heard. The chopped wedge salad was delicious but swimming in dressing. The gluten free buns were acceptable and appreciated. The food came out quickly and was prepared to the meat temperatures we had asked for. Parking is dear so sometimes you must park at the far end of the mall and walk.

We opted to eat on the quasi-patio in the back; inside is always way too loud. We were able to have drinks using the happy hour menu but ordered food off the regular menu. The service was good; had to wait a long time for my drink.

We enjoyed our date night at Zinburger. Beginning with the delicious zucchini fries with ranch dressing made a great start to the meal. This was followed by a fresh and superb Ahi Salad. The Zinburger served medium on a fabulous bun was mouthwatering with pickles on the side. We enjoyed the milk shake for dessert. The server, Morgan, was very knowledgeable of the menu, observant and attentive to our every need. Managers Angel and Josh, both came by and checked to see how we enjoyed dinner, the ambiance and the service. We highly recommend this establishment for a date night or special occasions.

Family friendly restaurant. A little noisy for 5:15pm but there were a number of parties with small children.

18 Sep- Reservation for 5:45, for 4 OUTSIDE. Presented myself and quite busy; checked in. MANY people went ahead of us and then around 6:15 lady took us to an INSIDE table. THAT could be the problem. We wanted OUTSIDE (on our reservation) so now, maybe we went to the 'back of the reservation line' awaiting for an OUTSIDE table (way too noisy inside, so we always go outside). Finally spoke to the 'manager'. Not sure if that helped, but about 6:45 finally go seated in an OUTSIDE table.....party of 15 outside? Your system should account for that with tables remaining for reservations (OUTSIDE). Server was great and helpful...no other issues...but please 'fix' your reservation system......lady needed to realize our wait AND that we requested an OUTSIDE table......we'll be back, BUT....???

We love Zinburger! The food, wine and value are excellent. Just wish that the acoustics were a little better, as it’s a bit challenging to have a conversation when it’s crowded! But that won’t stop us from going back again and again!

As always one of favorite places to go over past 11 years. Morgan, our server, was very attentive bringing the delicious zucchini fries, ahi salad and burger fast, hot and great meal to go with the excellent date. It was fun to see the establishment full and people having fun before UofA game. We love the staff as well as best shakes around.

I would not call the noise level energetic, I would call it extremely noisy where you had to actually yell to carry own a conversation. This was also a somewhat slow night.

We loved the food and the service. Best server we've had yet since moving to Tucson around five months ago -- Taylor. Food was also fantastic. We both had the Zinburger, drinks and fries. Only concern was my wife reacted a bit that night (she's allergic to cow dairy). We know that Taylor put it on the ticket that she had an allergy to Cow dairy but I suspect the GF buns or the Zinfandel onions were cooked in butter. She's not super allergic, like anaphylactic or we wouldn't go out at all. But she knows when she gets Cow Dairy and she's pretty sure she did. We do love they have GF buns and Sheep and Goat cheese available. That's nice when you have to limit so much already. The Manchego cheese (sheep) is a great addition. More restaurants should offer that. She eats that at home with no issues so we know it wasn't the Manchego.

This is an awesome restaurant definitely one of my favorites in all of Tucson (maybe even all of Arizona!). Everything about this restaurant is amazing. Their veggie burger is one of the best I've ever had, not to mention the Banana Cream Pie. On top of the meal, all the staff are incredibly friendly and helpful. The managers are attentive, incredibly welcoming, professional and kind, I always look forward to seeing Charity and Josh. Definitely worth a visit... and revisit... and revisit...and ... you get the idea

It was incredibly loud at 730 on Saturday. Even when the crowd thinned out I could barely hear the other people at my table. In the past the food here has been good. But this night burger was mushy and bun was soggy. Zucchini fries was limp and tasteless. Server forgot about us once we got our food and seemed annoyed when we wanted additional beverages and dessert. Place has gone downhill.

I go here frequently for happy hour with friends, but this was on a different night and a much larger group of people. Food made everyone happy, and our wait staff took care of 11 of us seamlessly. My only gripe is the noise, but being inside due to the heat contributed to that. Will be back soon!

I was given a nice $50 gift card by a friend for Fox Concepts. My best friend wanted “beef” for her birthday meal and we were not disappointed with fabulous burgers cooked to perfection (both medium rare). The zucchini fries were also excellent and we will be returning when we need a great gourmet burger. Thanks!

Zinburger folks were at the top of their game on July 4th. Count the 4 of us as extremely satisfied customers. I can honestly say that I did not see one person, staff or patron, without a smile on their face. Great food, drinks and fun.
