Burger Bonanza

Whisk

Whisk has a different burger each Friday. Loyal customers wait all week to see  the chef’s next concoction.  Fans love the Southern Slaw Burger, a burger, turned comfort-food.  The 8-ounce burger is tossed on the grill and topped with red leaf lettuce, sliced Florida tomatoes, grilled Spanish onions, melted Muenster cheese and the famous home-made slaw. Whisk uses the freshest ingredients out there, so the food feels authentic.

Burger & Beer Joint

This joint offers 13 different original creations ($11-32), with suitable names that describe the crazy toppings that rest atop a juicy patty of all different types of meat. Customers rave about the Cajun Sally, topped with Cajun spiced shrimp, watercress, tarragon remoulade and onions, or the Rooster, which is an 8-ounce chicken burger with turkey bacon, jalapeno jack and bourbon BBQ sauce, topped with a giant crispy onion ring.

B&B Joint has two locations: 1766 Bay Road, Miami Beach

Yardhouse

Yardhouse offers one of the juiciest burgers in town.  The 7.5-pound patty oozes when you take a bite, and the perfectly toasted bun is smeared with their homemade garlic aioli.  The perfectly crispy sweet potato fries are seasoned so spectacularly that when you dip them into the maple-butter sauce, the combination of sweet and salty is unreal.

OneBurger

OneBurger offers five different veggie burgers, ranging from organic veggie to Portobello and walnut crusted goat cheese burger. They range in price from $6.45 to $7.25. The best part about these burgers is that they aren’t just ground -together mush. Instead the ingredients, like rice and beans, are visible inside the burger when you bite into it. For people who like to know what they’re eating, it’s the perfect choice.
