109 Burger Joint (646 SW 109 Avenue, Miami) replaced cult-favorite burger joint, A&G. 109 Burger Joint was able to turn those frowns upside down (yes, I borrowed that line from Lionel Playworld) for those A&G hardcore fans.
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.
109 Burger Joint Only has Burgers?
The 109 Burger Joint menu has over 15 different eight-ounce (half-pound) specialty burgers with names like The Blue Moon, America, and The Panther.
The restaurant is in Sweetwater, a Nicaraguan-heavy part of Miami. There is a Nica Burger (Angus patty w/fried cheese, mild jalapeño cream sauce, fried sweet plantains & Nicaraguan-style coleslaw) on the menu, which is very popular.
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 many toppings, then this is your guy.
My favorite is the Blue Moon Burger. This beauty feature a Blue Moon beer aged patty with blue cheese crumbles, sautéed onions, mushroom orange mayo, & pickles. When you order your burger, make sure to get your patties Americanized.
You will then get two 4 oz. patties instead of one 8 oz so that your chargrilled burger will taste even smokier.
