If you're an Edible Baja Arizona fan, and you happen to read - and remember - the New Eats column by Tucson Foodie, you'll no doubt recall mention of Graze Premium Burgers & Fresh Cut Fries. Graze, a new concept from Jeff Katz, Fran Katz, and Paolo DeFilippis, the restaurant group behind Choice Greens, is a 'healthier' version of a fast-food burger joint.
Graze offers Niman Ranch all-natural antibiotic-free and hormone-free premium beef with local, 100% grass-fed Double Check beef available for an upcharge.
In addition to burgers, Graze offers fresh cut fries, Smart brand free-range antibiotic-free and hormone-free chicken breast, Arizona-sourced tepary bean and superfood-based veggie burgers, and Niman Ranch nitrate-free all-natural 100% beef hot dogs.
And, what burger joint is complete without some kind of delicious dairy treat and soda fountain? Strauss Family Creamery organic soft serve vanilla and chocolate are available along with Maine Root Handcrafted Beverages - one of the few organic sugar cane sodas available fountain style. Whether you're a soda person or not, the Fair Trade Certified Maine Root options including Blueberry, Mexicane Cola, and Mandarin Orange are a nice touch.
Prices for a meal are in the $6 to $12 range.
Graze is located at 2721 E. Speedway and is open daily. For more information visit them on the web at grazepremiumburgers.com.
