New and Upcoming Burger Joints to South Florida

Last month saw Boardwalk Fresh Burgers & Fries open in Boca Raton. This month, quite a few new restaurants featuring Burgers have sprouted up or have come to my attention. Most of them seem like they’ll add something to the South Florida Burger scene, please notice I said “most”.


The Counter is from California. It was supposed to open months ago and guess what? It now says Winter 2011 on their site. This thing has more delays than the airlines at MIA. Bad joke, I know but I couldn’t think up anything better.

The Counter
Miami International Airport
American Airlines Terminal E
Miami, FL 33166

5 Napkin Burger was named Best New Burger in 2009 by Time Out New York which of course means nothing to us in Miami. I’m still looking forward to trying it because some friends of mine have said that it is very good. It’s scheduled to open sometime in April/May.

BurgerFi is opening on January 31st in Ft. Lauderdale. Premium Burgers & Custards?

New Spot and 1 Coming

CG Burgers’ original location is in Jupiter but they just opened up a Palm Beach location. There’s also going to be a Kendall spot at the end of this year. Note to self…..must set reminder.

Hot Stuff Grille has a diner atmosphere which means to me that you can get burgers for breakfast (a win in my book). They are also opening a place called Big Wieners in Wilton Manors. I’m sure you can come up with your own jokes with that one.

Gourmet Burgers? They’re asking for it by having that term in their name. I don’t know anyone who’s tried it but if the food is anything like the website, they’re in trouble.

The Miami Herald just shredded OMG Burger so it’s not likely I’ll try it. But…..I might be up to the challenge anyway.

Rok Brgr just opened up in the 954 and things look promising. Everything I’ve read about them makes me think of Burger & Beer Joint, which is a good thing. I’m hoping to get up there this week to check it out.

I’m not really sure that Sunny Flavor is a burger joint. I received an email inviting me to try their “great burgers stuffed grilled ham and cheese, cream cheese, bacon and monterey jack cheese and jalapeno also have cordon bleu burgers stuffed with ham and cheese.” I haven’t made up my mind on this one.
