When the popular burger restaurant A&G closed up shop abruptly, all of its fans were disappointed. Then, everyone took a collective sigh of relief when 109 Burger Joint took over the location.
They were able to turn those frowns upside down (yes, I borrowed that line from Lionel Playworld).
Because of its proximity to FIU, 109 Burger Joint is a hotbed for college students. In other words, their craft and local beer selection are strong.
BURGERS YOU SAY
The menu has over 15 different eight-ounce (half-pound) specialty burgers with names like The Blue Moon, America, and The Panther. Since they’re located in a very Nicaraguan heavy part of Miami, the super-popular Nica Burger (Angus patty w/fried cheese, mild jalapeño cream sauce, fried sweet plantains & Nicaraguan-style coleslaw) has made a following for itself.
There’s also their signature burger, the 109 Super Burger. This over the top creation includes American cheese, applewood smoked bacon, guava sauce, mozzarella sticks, onion rings, french fries and mini mac balls on a 1/2 pound burger patty. If you like burgers with a bunch of toppings, then this is your guy.
My favorite is the Blue Moon Burger (Blue Moon beer aged patty w/blue cheese crumbles, sautéed onions, mushroom orange mayo, & pickles), and I’m going to let you in on a little secret. When you order your burger, ask for the patties to be Americanized. You will then get two 4 oz. patties instead of one 8 oz so that your chargrilled burger will taste even smokier.
