PEORIA, Ariz. -- When it comes to great hamburgers, I like to think I know a thing or two. After all, I've been eating them weekly for … well, it's a few years!

I've really been enjoying burgers at a westside restaurant/bar for probably 15 years, and I have to argue they're the best. 

It's called Wild Horse West. It's been around since the '60s, and for good reason. It's not fancy, but the food is so good that people come back over and over.

It's just a few hundred yards south of the intersection of Carefree Highway and Lake Pleasant Road.

On any given weekend, the place is packed with off-roaders, those on horseback -- however they get there and wherever they come from, they say it's definitely worth the trip. 

Over the next few weeks, I'm going to take you to some of my favorite places for a bite, and I'm going to take you by bike, boat, plane and train. 

Wild Horse West is located at 8415 W. Carefree Highway in Peoria. The phone number is 623-566-0740.

The kitchen opens daily at 9 a.m., and closes at 9 p.m. Monday-Thursday, and 10 p.m. Friday-Sunday.
