We JUST got back from a camping trip up in the woods in Pine, AZ over the last few days and we both needed two things, a great burger and a cold brew. We have very different tastes when it comes to the cold brew, he likes sours and I like IPA's. We enjoy eating out and have tried many places. There are some stellar restaurants in the area and it's been a hunt for us to find a place with a finger-licking good juicy burger and our respective 'cold ones'.
We set out in the car and started the 'So, where do you want to go?' conversation, both agreeing that we'd be adventurous and not just drive straight to our tried and true, where we absolutely hands down knew we'd get exactly what we wanted.
We arrived at said new location and got seated. We chose a place that advertises its specialization in 'brews'. We got the beer menu and even asked our server for the sour choices to no avail... poor Matt. They almost always have at least one IPA choice for me and typically Matt is stuck saying 'I'll just have water' from behind disappointed eyes. Being very used to this, Matt ordered water and our server set out for my ice cold Lagunitas which really isn't my favorite but it will do.
Not two minutes later the bartender runs past our table to the servers window and shouted 'Take the Lagunitas off of the menu. We're out!"
Imagine my face 😱
We both looked at each other and asked her to hold the waters, we are out of here! Although the burgers looked like they could be great...
No conversation in the car. We both knew where we were headed.
Uncle Bears, located on Ray Road in Ahwatukee, is our absolute favorite for that perfect burger and the brew of your choice. The service is always friendly, we hardly ever wait to be seated (even when it's super busy), the burgers are explosions of flavor and the beer that they brew in-house is perfect every single time. They have a laid back atmosphere so you don't feel like a jerk if your kid is a little crazy. They have an awesome kids menu and kids eat free on Wednesdays (with the purchase of an adult entree)!
