Blu Burger at The Summit (Ashler Hills/Scottsdale Rd) is a cooling blue oasis from the dry hot desert. Driving north on Scottsdale Road, Blu Burger is a quick stop at The Summit. Come in from the bright hot sun, to blue sparkle concrete floor/silvery blue booths, a long comfy bar with sports on tvs, tall blue glasses of ice water. Be seated in a booth with full shaded view of the desert to the west, watch the monsoon storms roll in. The silverware is hefty, with three tong forks! This particular Blu Burger is my favorite of the 3 I have tried. Exceptional build-your-own burger, from Kobe to turkey to vegeburger..try it as a lettuce wrap. Their lettuces, tomatoes...all veges are super fresh, crisp and cool. Their sweet potato fries are always just right, with coarse salt...try it with a side of their balsamic reduction! I order it with everything. This location has house made gelato, too! Try the pistachio! The serve a generous portion :). Superb service, families, all ages are treated like family. The outdoor tables are great, too, even on a hot day.
Then, enjoy shopping...many nice little boutiques, a Target...then drive on up to Carefree.
We have gone here for four years, and the food and service has been consistently great. Restrooms are clean, with abundant hot water and towels. Love Blu Burger at The Summit xo!

Dropped by for a solo lunch while shopping at the Summit and was delighted to find this neighbourhood gem. Indeed, it is very blue, but that didn't worry me - I was there for the food, not the decor. At this time of year, indoor service is a must and the small restaurant was almost half full. The service, speed of delivery and quality of the food were very good. I love that you get to build your own custom burger, and it'll be a real treat when I bring my husband back with me as he never has condiments on his burgers. The number of meat and topping choices was excellent. Portions are slightly generous.

And although I didn't indulge this time, the beer menu was impressive, both draft and bottled. The bar looked nice, and I can see us often popping in for a burger and beer with friends and visitors.

Looking forward to my next visit to Blu Burger Grlle.

5/13/2012, dining at the Peoria location.
Service was great, until I discovered a hair baked into my bun. Server/manager April was very quick to point out the store does not bake its own buns. Offered to bring me another burger. I had to request that my burger be removed from the tab. When I contacted corporate via their website, wael@bluburger.com was very derisive and rude. Instead of offering an apology, Corporate suggested I should have asked for the meal to be comped . A true pity they feel customers should be the ones to demand remedies instead of having them offered.

Food tasted fine until the hair incident. Hygiene and customer service were severely lacking.

A group of my friends go out once a month in order to find the best burgers in the cit(Scottsdale, Tempe, Mesa, Glendale, Phoenix, Peoria, Carefree, Cave Creek). Blu Burger is in our top ten. Burgers are cooked perfectly, are juicy and can be ordered with many toppings. My family also loves going here. We have never been disappointed.

I love the Blu Burger, I've been there at least 30 times and the food is always great. Make sure you bring an empty stomach cause the meals are huge. French martinis are fantastic there.
Sit in or out I always sit out. Build your own burger!
