Valley restaurant closes for a day due to popularity of food which sold out

After winning one of the 31 best places in the nation to score a mouth-watering burger from Thrillist, making it the only Arizona restaurant to do so, a Phoenix area eatery had to close for 24 hours to meet demand after they ran out of food.

The Stand, a burger joint in The Valley of the Sun, announced via their Instagram that they would be closed on Monday after the restaurant sold out of everything.

But those who need their burger fix won’t have to wait much longer: The restaurant said it would be “back up and running” by 11 a.m. Tuesday.

The Stand was recently selected by Thrillist as one of the top spots in the United States to have a burger. It was the only Arizona eatery to make the cut.

The Stand has two Phoenix-area locations: One in Arcadia near Indian School Road and 36th Street and another in Scottsdale on Scottsdale Road and Shea Boulevard.

It is best-known for its famed Standard Burger, which comes with its special Stand sauce. You can also add jalapenos, bacon and caramelized onions to your order. While the Arcadia menu is pretty straightforward, its Scottsdale counterpart also specializes in other foods — most notably, tacos.
