Independent Burger

Since 2013, Independent Burger has been raising the bar in the burger scene. This year, they take top honors away from previous category-topper Crave, their slightly older sister restaurant. Obviously the folks at Pan y Agua restaurant group have been honing their skills, replacing El Chuco’s typical greasy-spoon fare with handcrafted 100 percent grass-fed beef, locally sourced organic produce and gluten-free and veggie options. Take a modern twist with the Smokehouse, topped with bacon jam and smoked cheddar, or keep it simple with the Classic. Not in the mood for a burger? Indy also serves salads, all-natural hot dogs and homemade ice creams. 5001 N. Mesa St., 915-584-5453, independentburgerbar.com

Runner up: Crave Kitchen & Bar – 300 Cincinnati Ave., 915-351-3677; 11990 Rojas Dr., 915-594-7971; and additional locations, cravekitchenandbar.com
