Grilling burgers is fun, but the fuss of preparation and cleanup is not so fun. At Burgers Amore, kids will enjoy choosing the ingredients for their burgers, selecting their choice of bread, meat (beef, bison, chicken, pork, salmon, turkey or veggie), cheese and a sauce.

Look for signature creations like the Mac-and-Cheese Bacon Burger. Indulge in sweet potato, crinkle cut, French, curly or truffle fries. 602-269-7707 or

Don’t think street food and gourmet can go together? Think again. Luncha Libre showcases its split personality with authentic Mexican food and an infusion of Asian spices. Kids who are adventurous eaters will enjoy different quesadilla options with choices like Steak and Bleu (carne asada, pico de gallo, bleu cheese and jack cheese) and Papa Verde (potatoes, green chiles, pico de Gallo, jack Cheese and choice of chicken or steak). 602-399-4024 or

Breakfast for dinner, anyone? Adults and kids will love Belgian-style waffles topped with fresh fruit, Nutella, chocolate, homemade cream or a scoop of ice cream. Kids will lick the sweet goodness off their fingers and parents will enjoy a taste of Europe without paying for the travel. 480-304-5636 or

Instead of lunching at home, stop by The Grilled Cheese Truck for delicious sandwiches.

If anyone has room for dessert, the menu also features sweet sandwiches—Mom’s Apple Pie and The S’more Melt. 602-275-2800 or
