Ingo’s in the Press
The fresh shattered potato chips at Ingo’s Tasty Food.
Razor-thin and instantly addictive. Some emerge crispy like a chip, and others are crunchy outside and supple inside, like a french fry. Dipping sauces include lebni, a rich and creamy yogurt-like affair with a thick sour cream texture; and a fiery lacto-fermented green hot sauce. Pro tip: Dip once in lebni and then swipe through the hot sauce. Sublime.
Phoenix New Times
Part upscale diner, part theater-in-the-round, Ingo’s interior offers a single curved counter where guests can enjoy superb gourmet burgers crafted around a thick puck of grass-fed beef, cooked to a pinkish medium rare and seasoned with only salt and pepper. The simple cheddar Cheeseburger is moist and chop-house sized, and the Paris Texas Burger, served with smoky-sharp apple barbecue sauce and pancetta, is another winner. A better than decent wine list and some tasty sides (particularly the Shattered Potato Chips) make this a burger destination.
The folks behind La Grande Orange return to the winner’s circle with gourmet burgers and classy digs.
When Ingo’s Tasty Food opened in November, I asked myself: Does Phoenix really need another haute-burger-inspired eatery? After sinking my teeth into a juicy Ingo’s cheeseburger, I had my answer: Why the heck not?

Across the street from LGO is the gourmet food stand, Ingo’s Tasty Food. It’s a small but efficient space that puts out an equally small but consistently good menu. I chatted with Chef Kent about the efficiency of a smaller menu and how sometimes it’s overwhelming, not only for the guest but for the staff when the menu is trying to be everything to everyone. Shoot, I get caught up with trying to be everything to everyone, things get muddled and messy. With a menu like this, you can make sure each item is solid every time it goes it.
The Forking Truth
If you have driven around the Arcadia area of Phoenix you might have noticed an unusual small round building that is Ingo’s Tasty Food. This is a small casual restaurant that serves a petite casual menu of reasonably priced quality burgers, sandwiches, salads and a few other items. They also serve some cocktails, draft beer, wine and more. They offer patio seating.
