Lush Burger in Scottsdale

I was in Arizona recently and I had lunch at Lush Burger in Scottsdale. You place and pay for your order at the main counter. There is a variety of burgers (beef, tuna, chicken, veggie...), salads and milk shakes & floats.
It has a pretty slick decor done in red, black & white and a lot of stainless features.
The Lushburger Classic was very tasty. It is a Harris Ranch all-natural Angus beef patty served on a toasted brioche bun with lettuce, tomato and onion along with the house special sauce. As they say at the restaurant, they are addictively lush-ious!
Their version of a Veggie Burger is quite unique. The "Inside Out Veggie Burger" is a savory melody of grilled zucchini and squash patties, roasted red peppers, avocado, arugula and some whole grain mustard served between toasted quinoa patties. It is not the typical pick up and bite type of a burger, you have to eat it with a fork.
The patio was very inviting, that is, from inside the restaurant. With the 115 degree days, I think until October rolls around, you won't find anyone sitting out there. No wonder my parents flee the valley and spend the summer at our home in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico where the highs are around 80 to 85 degrees.
