Cold Beers & Cheeseburgers Gilbert, a neighborhood burger joint with a casual and friendly atmosphere, opened recently on the northwest corner of Higley and Queen Creek roads.

The trademark of Cold Beers & Cheeseburgers is its award-winning hand-formed, half-pound burgers of never-frozen ground chuck that comes in a variety of versions, Juicy Lucy, Pittsburger and Steakhouse Truffle among them, and readily customizable burgers with toppings to suit a patron’s taste.

The place also features a large collection of beers, from the favorites to the obscure. The rotating menu offers a selection of more than 130 choices – on tap, bottled or canned.

By way of food, there are five options for “MMMac & Cheese,” sides such as tater tots and sweet tots, four varieties of sliders and a salad selection.

The restaurant features comfortable leather booths, butcher block tables, more than 30 HD flat screen TVs and a great sound system for watching sporting events. There’s also outdoor seating.

Cold Beers & Cheeseburgers is the fastest growing brand of Square One Concepts, a full-service hospitality management, concept development, design and consulting firm located in Scottsdale.

This is the Valley’s fifth location, while two more are slated for Glendale and Phoenix.

Hours of operation are 11 a.m. to 2 a.m. Monday to Friday and 9 a.m. to 2 a.m. Saturday and Sunday.
