"Before you bite into one of the delectable slabs of beef at Diablo Burger, you’re probably thinking, Why is it cradled on an English muffin? After much experimentation, DB decided the light, crisp muffin makes the perfect wrapping for the burger. With meat this fresh and tender, you want just the right framework. All burgers are made using open-range, antibiotic-free beef from Diablo Trust ranches, operating Southeast of Flagstaff. This arrangement supports the stewardship of nearly a half million acres of a local ecosystem.
Since the beef is about 95 percent lean, try it medium-rare. This is an excellent burger, but as a traditionalist I do not graciously embrace change. On the standard burger, I’m slightly distracted by the muffin. But it probably works better with more complex creations. And here’s a tip: Put the lettuce between the tomato and top of the English muffin. That keeps the moisture of the tomato from turning the muffin soggy. They serve fries, or Belgian-style fries, fresh cut, cooked twice in peanut oil and served with a dash of rosemary. Delicious!"
