Top Burger In Arizona Born In Smalltown Globe AZ

Top Burger In Arizona Born In Smalltown Globe AZ


If you are from #GlobeMiamiAZ, you already know all about Nurdberger! If you live in #Gilbert and surrounding locations, you are quickly learning what all the excitement is about.  Named “Top Burger in Arizona” by respected outlets such as Arizona Highways, Local First Arizona, AZCentral, and Big 7 Travel, Nurdberger is quickly becoming a top destination for locals, tourists, burger enthusiasts and Star Wars fanatics!

While Nurdberger may be known already for their mouthwatering berger combinations, their menu is highly diverse and has creative options for the entire family. From philly cheesesteaks, to rice bowls, to chicken sandwiches, to funnel cake fries, you will never run out of options!  Our personal favorite is the Pippin Philly, Double Cheeseberger “PowerNurd” Style, shoestring fries, and a chocolate shake!

We recently caught up with owners Taylor Harrison and Cassie Opitz to highlight their dream turned small business, showcase some of their top concoctions, and announce their newest addition to the Nerdberger family!


Q) Can you tell us a little bit about the history of Nurdberger?

A) Nurdberger started in 2015, we bought the restaurant from a previous restaurant owner George Rodriguez and transformed it into a nerd themed restaurant. We’ve been open for 5 years now, going on 6. Throughout these 5 wonderful years we are very fortunate for the statewide and community support. Nurdberger was inspired by nostalgic games and movies, which was a huge influence in my life as a kid. I want to share that with others who have that in common with me!


Q) What made you want to open a second location?  Why Gilbert? 

A) Gilbert is a great location. Due to popular demand from customers and the community, we decided Gilbert was the place we needed to be. Customers would drive all the way from Gilbert/Queen Creek just to try our restaurant in Globe! 



Q) What is your most popular menu item?

A) Our most popular item on the menu is our Raising Arizona berger! The Raising Arizona is a half pound patty, stacked with jalapeño bacon, crispy jalapeños, green chili, and covered with melted pepperjack cheese, dressed with lettuce, and tomato drizzled with ranch.


Q) What inspired you to choose the name Nurdberger?

A) It’s so hard to find a business name! It took us weeks and weeks of dotting down names and changing words around. Until we came up with Nurdberger. Switching the “U” “E” just made it more unique! 


Q) What is the best restaurant you’ve ever eaten at, besides Nurdberger of course?

A) The best restaurant I’ve had.. I’ve tried a lot of great restaurants! This is hard, but I have to say my experience eating at the Marine Room in San Diego was by far the best! We had a celebrity chef, very impressive views of the ocean and delicious drinks! 


Q) What advice do you have for someone just starting out in the restaurant industry? 

A) Stay focused! Have fun! Learning from your mistakes is ahead!  But don’t sweat the small stuff. There is a lot to be grateful for when owning a restaurant. Your employees are like family, you have to learn to be patient with them. It’s a learning process for everyone!



Whether you find yourself in the great small town of Globe-Miami, or in the exciting atmosphere of the ever-growing Gilbert community, make sure Nurdberger is your first stop!  We guarantee one of the top bergers you’ll find anywhere within hundreds of miles, countless combinations of sides, desserts, and drinks; and some of the best #smallbiz owners you’ll ever have the pleasure of knowing

Their Globe location is located at 420 S. Hill Street, just off of Highway 60 and is open from 10:30am-8pm Monday-Saturday. Dogs are welcome on their open-air patio, where you’ll be sure to find friends and make great memories.

If you find yourself in Gilbert, their NEW location is at 235 E. Warner Rd, STE 107. Just a few blocks from Downtown Gilbert, this location offers the same great food and atmosphere thousands of people have come to appreciate.  Nurdberger Gilbert is also open 10:30am-8:00pm Monday-Saturday.
