Zinburger Wine and Burger Bar – Tucson River
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.
Great double date!
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.
Birthday celebration! Love this place and really appreciate military discount. As a mom of 3, I’ll make the drive from the NW side of town and get each kid their meal!
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....???
I opted to sit in the patio because the noise was too loud inside. I enjoyed myself and the food came out fast
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.
service not attentive. Took a long time for server to come to table. Order did not come all at once, as was requested.
Everting was great, the food the service, wasn't crowded when we went. We will differently be back. Thanks for making my son's birthday a good one. We made the right choice to go there.
A very nice place with GREAT Hamburgers. We requested a table near the windows and got what we wanted. Great place to people watch. The service was quick and the food was hot and tasty. It has a great happy hour menu.
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.
Wonderful service and excellent happy hour menu.
Food was excellent! Everything tasted great and the Happy Hour menu had a variety of choices. Service was a little slow at first but then the waitstaff did all they could to make sure we had everything we needed.
Great place for a casual birthday dinner
Thanks for the reservation. Great server by helping us out with questions, etc.....
Great for lunch. Fast and friendly service. Thank you
Celebrating birthday, food, service and atmosphere made a wonderful experience
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.
It is always to loud inside and this time it was too loud outside, but we were able to love and it made it a little better.
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.
Pretty awesome. Busy but food came fast!
Always a pleasure to have exceptional food served by outstanding people. This is our go to place to relax. Thanks to the staff, we feel like family.
Food great .. table was ready for our large party .. server good .. our out of town guests loved it ..
Love the burgers and zuch fries. Unfortunately the place is so loud you cannot carry on a conversation. Would be nice for a little sound control.
Waited 45mins for table even though we had reservations
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!
Took grandkids for celebrating their achievements. Great place for celebrations and dates
Despite the hamburger meat being overdone, it was still tasty. Truffle oil fries are sublime
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!
Everything was great. We ate outside so the noise level was minimal.
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.
Great servers. Great manager, always on the floor supporting his servers and greeters. Food was excellent and shakes were to die for. Glad we went there for the 4th of July special.
Fabulous! Staff is always pleasant and accommodating!
Great customer service. Great food.. we always have a good experience here!
Food and service were stellar.
Zinburger is always a winner for us. Celebrating grandkids completion of swimming camp. They love the burgers, fries and milkshakes.
