I have not had a hamburger or any red meat in 6 years, so when I read about Diablo Burger in Flagstaff Arizona in our Arizona Frommer’s Travel Guide, I thought it sounded good, but I still didn’t want to break the no red meat rule. But then we read about how Diablo’s burgers are made with 100% local, open range, antibiotic and growth hormone free beef that comes from 3 different ranches near Flagstaff that have been in operation since the 1800’s. So, I broke the 6 year old no red meat streak, and it was absolutely delicious.

I had the Blake burger with homemade Hatch Chile mayo, roasted green chiles and sharp cheddar and it was probably one of the best burgers I have ever eaten, and then comes the french fries. You have never eaten french fries like this anywhere in the world. They are Belgian style fries called Frites and are double fried in peanut oil and seasoned with Herbes de Provence. They are simply the most outrageously delicious fries I can ever remember consuming and once in your life you should try them. Honestly, they are that good and you get a monster basket of them of which I took a third back to our motel room and ate them the next day. If I were a Conehead and not interested in eating healthy, I would eat them in mass quantities.

Diablo burgers are not cheap and if you get anything on yours, it will cost you a minimum of $11 with tax, but that does include that ginormous serving of fries as well. They also serve a vegetarian burger for those that have sworn off meat for life. I didn’t get the veggie burger because I decided if I were going to eat any meat again it would be here, and it was well worth it.

Diablo Burger is a little hard to find and not even your GPS knows where it is (at least ours didn’t). It is located at 120 N Leroux St which is actually on the corner of Leroux street and East Birch Ave, but that still isn’t enough information to find it. You have to either walk down the alley off of East Birch Street or Leroux Street or walk through the shopping mall that sits on the corner to get to Diablo Burger. It is behind the small mall and it is a pretty small restaurant with few available seats inside and a few seats outside. Also, bring cash only because they are so into local, they don’t take credit cards.

If you are jonesin for a burger or want to jump off the vegetarian wagon for one meal, eat at Diablo Burger in Flagstaff. Your taste buds will have a serious party.

  1. […] Diablo Burger on the Square at 120 N. Leroux Street was a must try. Alan had read about it and learned that all the meats they use are local and from humanely treated animals without hormones and antibiotics. We call this clean meat and if having a hankering for animal flesh which we do occasionally, it is the best option. They also have an all local vegan burger they call “The Netzky” that is made for them by a local catering company. It’s a bit pricey at $10.50, but was a quality vegan burger not like the package kind you usual find in restaurants. Both the vegetarian and 100% local, hormone and antibiotic free beef burgers ($8.50-$11.25) were delish and the service was excellent. All burgers come with an over abundance of homemade french fries. Alan liked it so much he wrote a separate post on the place. […]
