    Looking for the best burger around? Head to Wild Horse West!

    Wild Horse West is one of Scott Pasmore's favorite burger joints. And he not alone in his choice. Wild Horse West is located in Peoria, less than 5 miles from Lake Pleasant, and on any given weekend, it is packed. It's not fancy, but the food is so good that people come back over and over.
