Aioli Burger at the 7th Annual Burger Battle

Sixteen entered. But only one would leave victorious. On this day, the Burger Battle would leave no holds barred, and no participant hungry.

In conjunction with the 40th anniversary of the Scottsdale Culinary Festival, March 23 was D-Day and Zero Hour for the battle royale amongst the very best burgers that the city had to offer. Hundreds of burger enthusiasts flocked to the Scottsdale Waterfront for the 7th Annual Burger Battle. With unlimited fries and milkshakes, there would be plenty of distractions, but everyone knew why they had come: to sample the offerings of 16 local burger joints and vote on the best of the best. With innovative entries like The District’s “Morning After” (candied jalapenos and a fried egg on a donut), Caveman’s “The Firestarter” (grass-fed beef, jalapenos, grilled sweet onions), and Handle Bar Diner’s unique entry featuring fried chicken skin, habanero honey, and a buttermilk biscuit, the crowd had its work cut out for it. In the end it was homegrown-favorite Aioli Burger which proved victorious. Relying on beautiful presentation and gourmet ingredients, the Aioli Burger featuring fried onion strings and patented aioli sauce was as beautiful as it was delicious, earning it the prestigious People’s Choice award.

The Best Burger: Secret to Success

From humble beginnings with a single food truck to the current fleet of three trucks, a catering company, and a new brick and mortar location, Aioli Burger has steadily been making a name for itself thanks to delicious gourmet burgers and word of mouth. Of course, word of mouth is difficult to achieve when everyone’s mouths are full of your decadent, juicy hamburgers, but winning two People’s Choice Awards for Best Burger (in 2015 and 2018) certainly help. Even more impressive is the fact that Chef Tom D’Ambrosio was invited to the 2015 event as the first ever food truck to contend, and he promptly won the competition.

The Concept

Started by three lifelong friends who wanted to make delicious, quality food for their hometown, Aioli Burger has routinely made the “Best Of” lists since they first started slinging fresh beef patties and serving up their delicious “fry flights.” Beginning with a single food truck in 2014, incredible demand and a rabid local following led to the guys quickly expanding the fleet to three trucks, added a catering business, and then a brick and mortar location in their old neighborhood in North Phoenix in October 2016.

Today, Aioli Burger is one of the most popular restaurants in the area – let alone burger joints – thanks to a dedication to gourmet food in a fast-casual atmosphere. While the staples like the Aioli Burger, the Italiano Burger, and the sumptuous White Truffle Swiss Burger are always on the menu, longtime fans will notice new additions such as charcuterie boards, a Falafel Burger, and much, much more. The Aioli Boys have also opened a new concept restaurant, the Modern Tortilla.

One thing is for sure, the people got this one right. Try an Aioli Burger for yourself at one of our trucks or the new store today; you can thank us later.

Aioli is popping up on menus with some confusion between garlic mayonnaise and aioli sauce. With all due respect, aioli is not mayonnaise that took a semester abroad.  @aioligourmetburger offers fresh, as in made from scratch daily, aioli sauce in four finger-licking flavors, white truffle, basil garlic, chipotle, and roasted garlic. This, along with great customer service and some serious customer loyalty, has lead from one food truck to three and a restaurant at 32nd St and Shea Blvd.  For catering or dinner tonight, #aioligourmetburgers top choice!
