Will bike for a Diablo Burger!

Straddling two cities before we make the big move to Phoenix, Bob drove back to Flagstaff late last night after spending a productive week at his new job, taking up residence at a downtown hotel and dining at the restaurants located in our new neighborhood.  Yes, confirms Bob, we're going to like living in the city.  Lots to bike and walk to and he just learned on that the rail line will be extended to Dunlap Avenue near his office by 2015.
Locked up on Heritage Square in front of Diablo Burger.

We've still got plenty of packing to do here but all Bob wanted to do this morning was enjoy a leisurely bike ride to downtown Flagstaff and have lunch.  Fine by me, I knew exactly where I wanted to go.

The Blake Burger

We hadn't been to Diablo Burger in many months.

The Vitamin B Burger

The obvious question is WHY?

There are no words, but Bob's face says it all.

Words and images cannot begin to adquately convey the unearthly deliciousness of a Diablo Burger, to say nothing of the rosemary French fries.  We are selling our refrigerator and convection oven tomorrow.  I plan to eat a lot of peanut butter sandwiches and microwave dinners but I just might have to pedal back down to Diablo Burger a time or two before we're gone for good.

Let me be perfectly clear - this is a damn good burger.

Is that served on an English muffin? Looks tasty!

Oh no! Why would you leave Flagstaff for Phoenix? Ah well, it's probably work or some such. At least Flag is still within relatively easy driving range.

Tim: We get that question a lot; Flagstaff is a great place to visit but it can be really hard to live here due to the very high cost of living (mosly in housing) and the very limited job opportunities and low pay. Bob and I prefer to be in a much larger city so we're willing to sacrifice the good weather. I'm returning returning starting (yet another ) grad degree this fall in at ASU in order to return to a previous career; and my husband happily found a new job. We're excited about the prospect of living in a historic urban neighborhood with many services and ammenities within easy walking and biking distance, as well as the opportunity to take advantage of public transit (which I love!). We'll visit Flagstaff in the winter for skiing though, something I will definitely miss.
