I really try to eat as clean as possible. I eat tons and tons of veggies, whole grains, very limited sugar (boo!), very little alcohol and drink my green juice daily. But that being said, I absolutely love food. All of my memories revolve around the food I eat. I’m extremely fortunate and I am incredibly grateful for great genes and a very fast metabolism.
What I crave post race…Burgers with a side of fries…
After the Phoenix Marathon (half for me), I went home immediately after the race, since I was exhausted from lack of sleep. I waited until Sunday when I got a burger from The Chuckbox in Tempe. I’m still relatively new to the Phoenix area so I’m still discovering new places and I was actually at another, much more healthy place, next door, meeting with my team for the Ragnar Trail – Zion, UT and all I could smell were these burgers. So of course I had to have one. Oh and my team still needs 2 more runners so if anyone is interested, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We walked in and there was a line that snaked around the restaurant – it was 2:30pm! That really shows how popular of a place this is – although, it is in the university area & a Sunday so that could be part of it ;). There was a diverse crowd so I don’t think that was it.
Check out the menu early because you are asked for your order way before you are actually at the counter.
They have quite the system for getting the burgers to you. I’m not quite sure how they keep track of the burgers but there is a system of toothpicks on the buns.
I picked the Big One with a wheat bun (still trying to stay semi healthy – lol) with a side of fries. They have a great topping bar with a variety of toppings, I’m boring and just like ketchup, yellow mustard & tomatoes so I didn’t really take advantage of the topping bar to the fullest.
Overall, I can’t say it was the best burger I’ve ever eaten but I did really enjoy it.
I paid for my own meal, or rather my friend did, and I have no affiliation to The Chuckbox, they have no idea who I am, I just enjoyed my visit and wanted to share my experience with others that crave burgers post race.
